We’ve already highlighted the appeal of shearling jackets for the upcoming frigid season, but if you’re looking for an equally cozy yet lower-cost alternative, faux fur teddy jackets are here to help save you from feeling the chill. The fluffy coats offer tons of texture, provide insulation and come in a surprising amount of colors and styles. From tan and ivory hues to more vibrant shades in classic peacoat, duster and moto shapes, teddy jackets come in as many incarnations as the teddy bears they’re named after.
And the plush pieces have seen a rise in popularity. Searches are up 1,200 percent year over year on Pinterest, so you know they’re about to be everywhere. As usual, the street style set was ahead of this trend (or perhaps the cause of it?). While checking out the Fall 2017 shows, several attendees bundled up in cropped teddy bear jackets, full-on Abominable Snowman versions in eye-catching hues like millennial pink, and calf-grazing collarless coats.
Now that you’re convinced you need to slip on a teddy this season, shop our picks of the best teddy jackets below.
