It’s been a mild 60° across both coasts, but in case there was any doubt, as soon as the slightest hint of chill touches my skin, I’m slipping on a teddy coat. Teddy coats are soft, cozy, and quite literally the next best thing to wearing a blanket in public, so there really isn’t a con to owning one. Less stuffy than a sharp wool coat and more polished than a bulky puffer, it’s that nice middle ground between the outerwear extremes. It’s a quintessential winter piece that can be styled with jeans or tailored trousers.
While the finest of the bunch (aka Max Mara’s beloved Teddy Bear Icon Coat) can definitely enter splurge territory, plenty of quality options exist that won’t require a whole rent check. Thankfully, I found the best the internet has to offer—from under-$100 coats to sumptuous luxe options. Keep scrolling to see them all.
