On the mornings so cold that my bones almost start to shiver, I wrap myself in the furriest, most hard-working outerwear I own: my best teddy coats. They're heavy-duty hugs in wearable form. The plush jacket, first introduced by Max Mara on the 2013 runways, offers more polish than a puffer coat but is less stuffy and structured than a tailored top coat.

What I love most about my teddy best coats is their well-rounded versatility: A textured teddy pairs well with my bodega-run uniform (leggings, a hoodie, and whatever pair of sneakers is within reach) as well as a winter work outfit. In addition to their limitless styling potential, with so many new versions, you can absolutely find a teddy coat with the details and price point that best suits you. For your consideration: STAND STUDIO offers tan, fleecy mid-length coats, while APPARIS has hooded coats in a rainbow assortment, ranging from powder blue to bubblegum pink.

My personal favorite is a faux fur coat by Banana Republic that's cut in a sharp, cropped silhouette. I recently styled it with a little black dress and gold jewelry to emulate the Mob Wife to end all Mob Wives, Carmela Soprano.

They might tick all the "trendy" boxes, but the best teddy coats are hard-working, reliably cozy wardrobe staples. Ahead, shop ten cozy coats that are as warm as they are stylish.
