I knew I had written a post about teddy coats last year so had a search in the archives and sure enough… and another on the same trend except it was written in 2016.
Last year I wrote ‘When does a trend become a wardrobe staple? I’m not sure but I am sure that the sumptuous, huggable, snug as a bug in a rug Borg coat has now been on the highstreet for three years and I have a feeling its not planning on leaving anytime soon’. And here we are in 2018 and they’re everywhere again. You know buying one its now a Winter style classic. You won’t waste your hard earned pennies to find it banished to sartorial coventry come AW19.
So I am repeating my advice on styling… ‘Don’t forget my favourite styling rule – the power of opposites. Think big coat – small legs. Whether its bare legs, tights, skinny jeans, tailored trousers. Just something to balance out the huge-ness of the Borg’.
So without further ado – this is my edit of the highstreet versions you can buy now. From £50 to £120 they’re all equally gorgeous. Thick pile and short pile, cream, black and brown. I like to dress mine up and down – looks great in the evening with heels and a dress just as it does in the day with jeans a fugly trainers! But I do usually like to have a darker silhouette under my cream one, and think a lighter silhouette looks best under black ones.
So enjoy the shopping and check my usual street style inspo below to get you in the styling mood.
