It's time to talk about The Bear—the show that sneaked into our lives, made us care about kitchen drama and dysfunctional families, and unexpectedly took our social media by storm. Chefcore started trending, and suddenly, our wardrobes needed expensive white tees. With Jeremy Allen White leading the drama, the third season dropped on June 27 on Disney+, and we already love some of the newest looks. However, we can't help but want to revisit the iconic fashion moments from the earlier seasons.

Now, let’s set the scene. The Bear is a gritty drama that revolves around the chaotic world of a family-run restaurant in Chicago. You’d expect the typical grease-stained aprons and practical footwear, right? Wrong.

Instead, the show presents a runway of outfits that reflect the characters' personalities and elevate the storytelling. Season one features vintage-inspired looks for the rugged restaurant, while season two showcases edgier styles as the protagonists modernize the space. 

The mastermind behind The Bear's cool wardrobe is costume designer Courtney Wheeler, whose work carefully adds to the show's authenticity and makes a subtle yet stylish statement while reflecting the characters' resilience and hardworking nature.

Let's peel back the layers and take a look at the best looks from The Bear

Carmy's NN07 Gael 8267 Patchwork Wool Jacket

Take our tortured chef protagonist, Carmy Berzatto, for instance. Played by none other than Jeremy Allen White, his wardrobe is a masterclass in understated cool. The NN07 Gael 8267 patchwork wool jacket stole the show in season 2 and made fans flock to get one for themselves. The coat is an understated piece in Carmy's already "quiet" style, but it also adds depth to his character, reflecting his hardworking nature with the jacket's meticulous design. It's a blend of practicality and style.

Carmy's Essential White Tee

Carmy's wardrobe wouldn't be complete without his perfectly distressed vintage Levi's and the viral white tee every respectable wardrobe should have. Said to be from German brand Merz B. Schwanen, the basic tee has become a staple in the show, highlighting the importance of investing in a high-quality, versatile piece that forms the foundation of any good fit. It's a reminder that simplicity can be powerful, and a well-chosen basic can elevate an entire look while withstanding the test of time. 

Sydney's Workwear Chic

Take  Ayo Edebiri's Sydney Adamu, the ambitious sous-chef whose style blends street-smart edge with professional polish. Her outfits reflect her journey throughout the series—tailored yet comfortable, practical but never dull. 

Whether it's pairing graphic tees with a button-down or cardigan, her black and green puffer jacket for the colder days, or her iconic white Birkenstock Tokio's for the kitchen, Sydney always has an air of relaxed cool. One of our favorite examples of her understated workwear is her white Carhartt overalls paired with an embroidered light blue Bode tee. 

Richie Wears Suits Now

Richie, the loudmouth cousin, Ebon Moss-Bachrach's character, is as rough around the edges as they come. At the start, we see him dressed more relaxed, reflecting his lack of conviction and smaller role in the restaurant. But our favorite look is the classy all-black suit he starts wearing at the end of season 2, delivering timeless elegance. 

As Richie becomes more confident and takes on a more prominent role, the sleek custom-designed suit is the perfect visual to showcase his character progression; to our delight, he knows it. Although he wore some Oxford shoes, pairing a nice pair of sneakers with a classy suit is an excellent alternative for those who haven't yet warmed up to dress shoes. 

Sydney's Thom Browne Chef Jacket

Sydney’s Thom Browne chef jacket, which Carmy gifts to her, is another standout piece that combines her culinary expertise with high fashion. This jacket not only serves as practical workwear but also signifies her professional stature and being celebrated for her dedication to the kitchen. With her customized embroidered name, it’s a perfect example of how workwear can be both practical and chic.

Accessories that Tell a Story

Accessories in The Bear are more than just finishing touches—they enhance the whole outfit and extend the depth to each character. Carmy's worn-out baseball cap represents his connection to the past and relentless work ethic. Sydney's bandanas add a pop of color and highlight her vibrant personality and creativity. 

Lionel Boyce's Marcus always sports a green beanie, symbolizing his practical nature and bringing comfort to the demanding kitchen environment. The cake boss is also rocking some of the coolest sneakers, like the New Balance x Aime Leon Dore 550s. The accessories are both functional and fashionable; even people who haven't watched the show know about them.

Newest Fashion Moments from The Bear Season 3 

As the newest season of The Bear dropped, some of the newest looks are as fresh as they come. Now, don't you worry; we'll make sure to keep this spoiler-free! First, Carmy is back with yet another jacket. This time, he traded his patchwork NN07 for the understated Ralph Lauren dark navy Cotton Deck Jacket, keeping that workwear aesthetic going. Sydney, on the other hand, loves Dries Van Noten just as much as we do, wearing a beautiful blue and ivory Fall 2018 ready-to-wear dress and looking ever so elegant. Season 3 continues to have more cool bandanas and sneakers, along with other pieces that continue to elevate the series as a whole.
