Keep cozy with a teddy bear coat in every style

Have we reached peak hygge with this trendy faux topper?

Have we reached peak hygge with this trendy faux topper?

The temperatures have officially dropped (definitely no more 30+ degree days left in 2018, right?), and the world a bit of a hot mess right now, so perhaps that's why the beyond cozy trend of teddy bear toppers is everywhere. We need to feel some comfort! This season, a longer pile jacket will work wonders keeping you warm — you can even layer it underneath a big puffer for extra toasty-ness once winter hits.

The warm and comforting trend that started to appear in 2014 is stronger than ever now, with faux shearlings and furs and soft fleeces in every teddy-like pile and shade in stores and online. Want a bomber style? Check. One with a hood? Found it! How about a deep burgundy version? No problem.

Wrap me up

A black high pile coat such as this is the perfect grown up version of the classic teddy bear coat. And the cozy cocoon-shape means it can easily be cinched at the waist with a leather belt for an even dressier take.
