Ways To Wear The Teddy Bear Coat: The Comfiest Coat Trend This Season!
As the temperatures drops, even the celebrities are looking for warm and trendy fashion ideas. One of the coziest trends this winter definitely has to be the Teddy Bear coat! If you’re looking to wrap-up this winter, then a coat inspired by teddy bear fur will for sure see you through the crisp mornings and frosty nights. Teddy fur popped up all over the AW13 Fashion Weeks. Designers Tommy Hilfiger, Dries van Noten, Vika Gazinskaya, Nina Ricci, Carven and MaxMara created huge fluffy coats and sent them down their runways. Toni Jones of 30ish Stylist said, “Teddy bear coats are the ultimate in cozy, but huge coats have a habit of making the people who wear them look huge too…The wearer needs to remember that this is most definitely a statement coat and the rest of the outfit needs to be pared down and as minimal as possible.”
LOOK ONE – WITH BASICS
This first look takes a pair of boyfriend jeans and a basic tank top, and pairs it with this cozy Isabel Marant jacket. This shorter length teddy bear jacket will help flatter petite frames and look bang on trend. Finish the look with some platform heels to slim your frame and a pair of designer sunglasses. And yes, it is okay to wear sunglasses in the winter! Sunglasses help protect our eyes from bright light, and the weak winter sun can still make us squint, and surely no one wants extra wrinkles around their eyes! This look keeps a simple color palette with blue denim and white. We feel like this gives the outfit that fresh winter-white feel. Perfect for those crisp mornings.
LOOK TWO – MONOCHROME
Monochrome is far from boring, and has in fact been one of the latest trends this season. The leather pants are chic and cool, especially when paired with some trendy slipper shoes! A large tote bag and fedora will help create that off-duty model vibe, and the cowl neck sweater will help keep you extra warm. The shape of this teddy bear coat will help add some structure to your look so you won’t feel like you are swamped by such an oversized coat.
LOOK THREE – EVENING OUTFIT
The teddy bear coat can still be dressed up and worn for a smart evening look. Add a fur scarf to this boxy jacket and make sure to keep the bottom half of your outfit on the slim side by wearing a dress with opaque black tights. We would add a pop of color with this leopard print clutch, as we think that this structured clutch would suit an evening look much more than a large tote bag. Don’t forget to add some glamour with some eye-catching earrings such as these Dannijo Champagne Large Swarovski Crystal Odessa Statement Earrings.
