This winter is undoubtedly like no other. Thanks to the ongoing pandemic we’re having to do a lot - if not all - of our socialising outdoors and let’s be honest, it’s not quite as pleasant as it was in the summer is it?
This year more than ever we really need to invest in one of the best winter coats and we’re here to tell you that the toasty teddy bear coat will be your new go-to.
Yes, the fuzzy (faux) fur is cropping up everywhere and we think it's the perfect coat for keeping us snug and stylish while spending countless hours outside for the sakes of our social lives.
And the good news is, the shops have loads of teddy bear coats on offer, with some at discounted prices thanks to the Black Friday sales so now is the perfect opportunity to snap one up.
Teddy bear coats – quick links:
What is a teddy bear coat?
As the name suggests, the texture of a teddy bear is like your favourite childhood toy and imagine that being wrapped around you? Just like a warm hug, a teddy bear coat is not only one of the warmest winter coats you can buy, but they’re pretty stylish too.
Usually made of faux fur to resemble a teddy bear’s fluff it can come in an array of cuts, from cropped jacket style to longer oversized designs. You can get them in many colours too. Go classic in brown or make a statement in pink, whatever takes your fancy.
And because they come in so many shapes and sizes, it’s easy to find the right fit for you too. They’re not as bulky as other faux fur so generally pretty flattering all round.
