Easy Outfits: How to Make a Cozy Teddy Coat Look Super Polished
Snuggly, cuddly, and ultrawarm — three attributes I greatly appreciate in a coat. So, you won't be surprised to learn that my top pick for an affordable coat this season is this Teddy Coat from the POPSUGAR collection at Kohl's. So cozy!
When it comes to outerwear, I tend toward the classics from tailored peacoats to waist-cinching puffers. But for 2019, I'm craving a bit more texture, and the one way to achieve a polished and snug look at once is a tailored teddy coat. After all, fuzzy, body-enveloping coats were one of the biggest outerwear trends for Fall and Winter, and what better way to try out the trend than with an under-$100 teddy coat?!
Since my style oscillates between feminine and tailored, styling a teddy coat, for me, can go one of two ways in cool weather: spruced up with a printed dress and heeled boots for the office or an event, or mixed with low-key staples like jeans, leggings, and tees with flats or sneakers. I started with the former, layering our cozy camel coat over a printed ivory dress by Ulla Johnson. For a sleek and trendy finish, I mixed in textured black boots from Tory Burch and a croc-effect bag by Wandler, which not only look smart for the office but seamlessly transition to after work drinks and dinner. While this put-together outfit formula exudes polish, it feels unfussy thanks to the neutral palette and flowing silhouette of the dress — the dream, if you're looking for ways to downplay the sweetness of feminine pieces.
