Mauve Teddy Coat

The teddy coat is having a moment this fall, and I couldn’t let my winter style series pass without styling one! Unfortunately, since we shot this look, Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend has come and gone, and so have most sizes of this coat.

There are still quite a few options in the mocha color, though; and it’s probably more versatile anyway, but I couldn’t resist this pretty mauve.

This teddy coat has that fun nubby texture that defines the style, but it’s a nice quality bouclé that I think looks more expensive than it is. Sometimes these teddy coats can tend to resemble a bathrobe, but this one has a quality look about it, and it’s really soft and cozy.

I like the open styling, which makes it so easy to throw on and go. That also makes it look like more of an outfit completer piece than outerwear, but it works as both.

I will say that the placement of the lapels is a bit unfortunate. I think it would look great on someone not quite so well-endowed, but on me it adds some visual weight, so keep that in mind if it’s something you’re considering.

Underneath, I’m wearing this ribbed mockneck from Madewell, and there are more sizes at Nordstrom. Both Nordstrom and Madewell offer free shipping and free returns, so it’s really a matter of who has your size and where you prefer to accumulate rewards points.

I like this sweater so much I got it in the burgundy as well. I think the ribbed texture is so pretty, and it’s that shorter boxy look that is on trend. It’s also made of that stretchy, supersoft yarn that is so comfortable. For size reference, I’m wearing the small. You could size up for a slouchier fit, but I was afraid if I went any bigger, it would look sloppy.

I accessorized with silver jewelry. These earrings and necklace are both from Kohl’s, and I often wear them together because the hammered metal in both pieces looks great together.

I also really like how lightweight they both are. They’re inexpensive but look a lot nicer than the price tag might suggest.

On the bottom, I wore bootcut jeans and sock booties, and I carried my black satchel. I love the barely boot jeans at Express, and you can’t beat the price for the quality.

I’ve had this satchel for years, and it still comes in so handy. It’s a great everyday size, and the black hardware gives it a little bit of an edgy vibe.
