Coats to covet this winter :: teddy coat

Hi there! Let’s start off the new week right with another winter coat! The teddy coat! (If you missed the previous two eps of the Winter Coat Edit series, click here and here)
Now I have to say it wasn’t love at first sight. I wasn’t so sure about how to pull off a plush coat without looking like a real teddy bear… So I asked my friends and little sister for their honest opinion: does it suit me and should I keep it or not. Luckily they all said it was a keeper. Now I’m so so glad I kept it! Keep on reading if you would like to know why..

1// lifesaver
Believe me, a teddy coat is worth the investment. No, it really is. It’s a lifesaver I’d say! This coat certainly keeps you warm when the cold winter hits us.

2// not your average coat
Besides the functional part, this teddy coat is such a statement piece as well. It can spice up any outfit, yes even a boring outfit! I wore the most boring/mom off duty outfit here: a simple knit paired with some skinny jeans. As footwear I went for a pair of comfy sneakers. Nothing special right? But when I decided to throw on my teddy coat over this boring look, it immediately created that WOW effect. Wow, mom!

3// cuddles, cuddles, cuddles
My baby boy, Aiden loves to cuddle when I’m wearing my teddy coat..yes, even babies find these coats so FLUFFY!. Every time he sees me in the teddy coat, his eyes get really big. Then he crawls down the hall to me and wants me to hold him so he can rest his head on my teddy coat. Isn’t that cute?

:: tip ::
be picky
Finding the perfect teddy coat that suits all your needs might take some time. But be patient! I know it might be overwhelming as teddy coats are popping everywhere, but do your research before purchasing one (you’ll thank me later). I’ve tried lots of teddy coats, returned a few before I finally kept this one from Zara. I happened to find out that I prefer long teddy coats with collars and lapels (collarless coats make my shoulders look wide). I don’t like the zipper à la bomber jacket ones. Instead, I like the ones with button fastening along with invisible side pockets (big front pockets make my hips even bigger, Wai said I looked like a fluffy pumpkin). Sometimes it’s good to be picky, no?

Would you go teddy this winter?

    The teddy coat looks so adorable and warm! I like how “teddy” is such a perfect name for it! If it were colder here in LA, I’d be down to buy one. I agree with you about patience. It takes some time to find something that you’d like! It’s always good to be picky :). Rocking the look, Vivian!

    Teddy coats are adorable and so cuddly. I have one, but haven’t worn it much as here in Vegas the sunshine is blasting.

    I’ve always been unsure about teddy coats because some can be unflattering, but the style you have is gorgeous! It really does add something to a minimal outfit. And I love the color of it!
