The Coolest Coat in Hollywood Is Straight From 'Sesame Street'

Some stars check out the runways for style inspiration, others keep tabs on Pinterest, and still others look to a certain children’s TV show for fashion tips — at least if these celebs’ current outerwear of choice is any indication.

Kourtney Kardashian, Sarah Jessica Parker and Ellen Pompeo all recently stepped out in brightly colored alpaca coats, which definitely have a “Cookie Monster Couture” vibe.

The reality star (left) first wore the popular topper last month, when she chose a mint Skaist Taylor creation paired with an orange blouse and white pants. Then just last week, Parker tried the trend in the form of a blue double-breasted alpaca coat from NoNoo, plus a black plaid dress. And most recently, Pompeo donned a fuzzy ruby version with a white tee and leather skinnies on Monday night.

We love a bold trend, but this is one we recommend approaching with extreme caution. Keep the shaggy look, but stick with neutral colors since the material makes a big enough statement on its own. And if you’re determined to pay homage to the Muppets, try a bright alpaca accent rather than an allover coat. Tell us: Do you like these jackets or are they too over-the-top?
