As the temperatures continue to plummet and the days keep getting shorter, we're constantly on the lookout for new ways to combat the season's chill. So when fancy fashion designers like Dries van Noten, Tommy Hilfiger, and MaxMara sent fuzzy, oversized jackets down their winter runways, it didn't take long for A-listers and street style stars to take notice. The teddy bear coat-which gets its name from the plush, snuggly faux-fur material-is officially the most in-demand topper of the moment, and Alexa Chung has already mastered the look (because of course she has!).
With its mid-length hemline and boxy cut, her beige version shares several style elements with the classic camel coat. The neutral hue and menswear-inspired silhouette make it timeless, but the dense, shearling finish gives it a fresh, quirky vibe. Plus, it's totally in-tune with the current borrowed-from-the-boys outerwear trend-just with a luxuriously warm (and ridiculously comfortable) upgrade.
While pulling off this cozy statement piece is super simple, it does require a little bit of style prowess. Since the heavyweight material and sizeable shape can make it a bit bulky, it's best to pare down the rest of your outfit by opting for more form-fitting fare. Alexa's all-black dress and tights duo balances out her coat, while her round tortoiseshell sunnies add just the right amount of girly flair. We love how her lacy neckline peeks out underneath her coat's large, fluffy collar-it adds a just a touch sweetness.
The best part? You can cop her irresistibly cozy look without sourcing from the runway. Fuzzy outerwear is popping up in stores everywhere, so you can get your hands on it just in time for winter weather to really hit.
