When you need to leave the house and all you want to do is stay in bed. There’s coffee and there’s a teddy coat. You got this! Prep for those cold days with the best teddy coats for autumn winter and how to style them.
BEST TEDDY COAT FOR AUTUMN WINTER 2019
The teddy coat has been everywhere for the past year in particular. All of last winter I thought about getting one but told myself to man up and just leave the house and deal with the cold. Who was I kidding? I complained about the cold the entire time! So, as we roll into another autumn-winter season in Australia, I caved and decided to find my fleece coat of choice. While I can joke about how it feels like slipping on a blanket and taking it with you, I was surprised how they can look a lot more stylish! Below, I have found two options of super warm fleece teddy coats to share with you from Uniqlo. They are SO cosy!!
THE FLEECE TEDDY COAT
The first look, the fleece teddy coat I’ve styled ready for a day at the office, with a cashmere crew neck jumper and wool blend pants. Together they are super warm and chic. I feel like I could wear this anywhere through winter and feel put together. For the coat, I opted for the beige colour, which is a beautiful neutral and of course very teddy! I really appreciate that this coat is lined, super light and a bit oversized too.
Another way I’d like to wear this would be a tonal look with beige pants and a knit- possibly even a high collar or turtle neck. Or maybe blue denim and a white tee (not unlike the outfit I wore with my trench coat recently). It’s obvious that you will see me wearing this throughout winter.
THE FLEECE TEDDY JACKET
The second teddy coat look is a zip through jacket which comes in a huge range of colour options! I opted for a natural colour and styled it with sleek looking track pants by styling them up with boots for a more street style worthy look. This one feels super casual, it’s very fluffy and cosy, which would be perfect for those weekend mornings at the farmer’s markets. Oh, and the big pockets at the front are like having mittens on but without the inconvenience!
I would end up wearing this jacket with jeans and a thin knit over winter, or a wool midi skirt and boots too.

WHY I GO BACK TO PLACES LIKE UNIQLO FOR WARDROBE STAPLES
What are you guys looking for this winter? I have been talking about coats a lot lately because I’d created a wishlist of coat options to see me through the season. At the end of last year when I did a huge wardrobe clearout, I donated a number of the coats I didn’t wear for one reason or another. Before the days have really dropped below 30 degrees here I’ve managed to now fill my new coat quota!
You definitely don’t need to go out and grab new ones each year, I prefer to have a few great coats that are made well and can be worn for years. Uniqlo is great for that which is why I’ve found some great options there. My oldest Uniqlo finds from years ago are all still serving me well and I wear them all the time. That is exactly why I turn to them for fresh season updates that I know I’ll be able to use and abuse for years to come.
Please let me know below how you would style a teddy coat and what you are searching for this winter.
