I Searched High and Low for the Best Teddy Coats, and Here They Are



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.

It's definitely a challenge to find an under-$75 teddy coat, but I was victorious.

This is on sale, and needless to say, it's guaranteed to go fast.

For that "wrapped up in the clouds" feeling.

This shade of red is simply breathtaking.

More of a jacket silhouette, it's a great option if your style leans more casual.

Before you peeped the actual price, I bet you, too, thought this was designer.

Just add a baseball cap and some activewear and you've created a chic after-pilates 'fit.

Since it's holiday season, this would make a great gift.

Nope, I still can't get over the fact that this has a hood.

Another worthy option if you're on a budget.

From the oversize shape to the minimal buttons, everything about this screams chic.

Wear this with a cream turtleneck and joggers for a relaxed look.

Contrary to perceptions, teddy coats can absolutely be fancy. Opt for a cropped length for a more formal take.

Whenever in doubt, Ganni will never let you down when it comes to great quality outerwear.

Curly shearling is a cool alternative to the conventional fluffy teddy coat. The defined texture also looks supremely elevated.

If you're over black and are in the mood for something other than camel, this rich wine color is just the thing.

It's only a matter of time before everyone in New York is wearing this.

For added drama, try a coat with leather piping. 

The next best thing to wearing a comforter outside.

When I found this coat, it was love at first sight. Just get ready to see this all over your feed.
