Don’t You Want to Feel Like a Teddy Bear?

It’s hard for me to pinpoint the exact moment I began to covet the downy softness of faux shearling sweaters. But sometime within the last year my aesthetic preferences have begun to shift from “gothic grandma” towards “overgrown, life-size teddy bear.” Lately, I dream of swaddling myself in soft, nubby fleece and drifting through life enveloped by a cozy cloud.

If you too are ready to elevate Paddington, Fozzie and Teddy Ruxpin to their rightful status as style icons, I’ve rounded up the best fleecy jackets so irresistibly soft they’ll make everyone around you want to nuzzle you for comfort.
