Teddy coats are BIG news right now and are set to be an annual autumn / winter staple in the years to come.
Although they have a unique look, a teddy coat is a versatile wardrobe staple. Worn by any notable rock star during the 60’s and 70’s, the teddy coat is back and making a growl in the fashion world.
Whilst it was a coveted clothing item during the Mod era, it has been increasingly revamped over the years to fit modern fashion and classic culture. More contemporary pieces tend to feature more muted, neutral hues, less structured cuts and softer lines than their earlier counterparts.
You will find that the classic teddy coat style tends to be brown in colour (like a bear’s fur!) with a cocoon silhouette and super warm and cosy vibes.
You may have shied away from the idea of trying a teddy coat as they are quite a distinctive choice and their typical oversized contouring may not be to everyone’s taste. However, they are easy to work into any look and suit any personality if you follow some key tips.
The key rule when wanting to style any teddy coat with an outfit is to keep your look as minimalist and understated as possible.
