Trend Spotlight – Turn Your Mediocre Winter Outfit Into A Masterpiece!

Today’s forecast? It’s cold. Well, at least it is in most of the country right now! But luckily one of the hottest style trends still going strong in 2024 is teddy coats and jackets. Faux fur and shearling teddy coats and jackets will instantly elevate your winter outfits adding a touch of style, drama, and glam. These luxe fabrics will keep you warm in the coldest of temps too. You can layer a teddy coat over everything from a loungewear set to an evening gown. It’s basically the “outerwear that goes everywhere” according to Vogue Magazine Winter issue. How’s that for versatility? In today’s For Less Friday post, we wanted to share some affordable ways to slay this fluffy, cozy trend on any budget.

When it comes to staying warm, puffer jackets and coats are another on-trend option. Erin shares some of her favorite brands and styles in this post.

Teddy Coats and Jackets

Length, fit, and fabric are the 3 main elements you want to consider when determining which teddy coat or jacket you’ll wear most frequently.


For the most versatility, and warmth, a longer-length teddy coat will be your best bet. This ensures you’ll be able to top off any of your dresses, skirts, and pants without worrying about a conflicting hemline. But when it comes to wearability in less chilly climates, you could consider a hip-length or even a cropped teddy coat.


The fit for teddy coats is meant to be oversized. In fact, the more oversized, the more glamorous and on-trend. Think dropped shoulders, enveloping wrap styles, large lapels, minimal hardware, cozy, and fluffy. If you want a relaxed but not super oversized fit, you could consider sizing down one size.


As for fabric, shearling and faux fur have different weights, softness, and percentages of wool and even silk. You’ll want to consult the online description for notes about fabric weight and decide if you’re looking for a heavier-weight fabrication or more of a lightweight option.

This Max Mara teddy coat is SO iconic. Worn by countless celebrities, this coat is celebrating its 10-year anniversary (yes 10!) and is still going strong. Erin received it as a Christmas gift from her husband Chris, and has been wearing it non-stop. It’s a quality coat she’ll wear for years and years to come. It’s very oversized, warm, and yet surprisingly lightweight. This is exactly where glamorous meets drama! It is a luxury item with a luxury price tag, so if this beauty isn’t in your budget but you are inspired by the trend…we wanted to share some less expensive options you can try.

Cropped & Cozy

This cropped shearling teddy jacket will pair perfectly with your high waisted jeans. It has a relaxed fit, a hook and eye closure, and welt pockets.

Perfect Peacoat

This glam coat from Free People has an oversized collar as well as an oversized all-around fit. We love the light neutral color.

Rich Faux Fur

A rich brown fur faux cropped jacket like this is one you'll wear now straight through to spring!

Teddy Maxi

This teddy maxi coat in this gorgeous wine color has an adjustable cinched back. It does run very large so you could consider sizing down.

Petite Sizing

If you are looking for a teddy coat that comes in Petite sizing, look no further. This faux fur option comes in the colors Brown Sugar and Black as well as Petite and Regular sizes.

Faux Shearling

The large lapels on this Sam Edelman faux shearling coat are SO cool and are what give it that on-trend look.

SUPER Budget-Friendly

We did a double-take when we saw the $64 price tag on this teddy coat. It's super soft, a great length, and easy to dress up or down.

Best Dupe

We think this one is probably the closest dupe for the Max Mara teddy coat. The only problem with this coat is it's tough to choose which color we like best! It comes in ivory, gray, soft brown and pink.
