Every season a new item of clothing hits cult status thanks to celebrity street style looks.

While this year has already seen everything from a £1,000 Chloe bag to £40 Zara polka dot dress become best-sellers, the ‘it’ fashion items just keep on coming.

This month Max Mara’s Teddy Bear Icon Coat has arguably become the latest must have item of 2019.

The winter wardrobe staple has been seen on numerous celebrities over the past few months, including Katie Holmes, Elsa Hosk, Blake Lively, Celine Dion and Rihanna.

The very cosy looking coat even has its own hashtag #maxmarateddybear, which has almost 10,000 posts.

Actor Katie Holmes, was the most recent celeb to style the designer item, which retails for £1,970. The 41-year-old chose the classic camel coat for a night in New York, pairing it with animal print accessories.

The outerwear, which first shot to icon status on its debut in 2013, also comes in six other colours.

While the tan hue has proved to be most popular among celebrities and influencers, also seen on model Elsa Hosk and influencer Chiara Ferragni - other trendsetters have braved the bolder shades.

Celine Dion stepped out in November wearing the coat in a statement turquoise shade, which matched her head-to-toe blue look.

Meanwhile, Blake Lively was seen in a festive red number while leaving Taylor Swift’s birthday party last week.

However, at almost £2,000 a pop, the coat isn’t exactly an everyday purchase. Therefore, we’ve found affordable replicas so you can channel your inner fave stylish celeb this winter.
