Another New York Fashion Week has come to an end. Looking back at my looks this season, I noticed one staple piece: the teddy jacket. I’m definitely not alone with the teddy jacket obsession as I also saw all kinds of teddy jackets on the showgoers. My love affair for teddy jackets did not develop recently and I decided to take a trip down the memory lane to all the times I’ve worn a teddy jacket during NYFW.
Oh, the 2013 Aimee. The year where I had long locks and ombre hair. I wore a Twelfth St By Cynthia Vincent Faux Fur jacket (similar here). I loved how this jacket matched with my denim look. I remember going to several meetings that day while wearing my 6-inch pumps in the cold! I’ve learned my lesson but at least this jacket kept me warm.
Jumping to NYFW 2016, I wore this white faux fur coat that I got from Korea (similar here affordable here). I love this teddy coat and I still wear it to this day (see how I styled it here!) White coats can make your work clothes extra chic, like this pantsuit I wore in the photos.
On the same week, I wore this look to a Zimmerman show. The teddy coat I wore (affordable here ) was actually borrowed from my mom. I did not have to worry about layering because the coat was enough to keep me warm! Here’s a tip based on my experience: when choosing a teddy coat, consider the weight and density! On most cases, the heavier fur coats keep you warmer.
Moving on to 2018, I wore this monochromatic look with a Celine teddy jacket (affordable here). I loved the different textures in this jacket and it is really soft! With the knit pants and sweater, I could totally live in this outfit.
More from 2018 are these two emerald green teddy jackets! In the left photo, I was wearing a Sies Marjan shearling fur coat (under $150 here) and in the second photo, I was wearing a DVF faux fur green jacket (affordable here ). Styling bright teddy coats can be tricky but monochromatic looks always work!
I have worn A LOT of teddy jackets during New York Fashion Weeks. I’m thankful for these teddy jackets that helped me power through the freezing New York weather. They all deserve that extra space in the closet.
