So here we are, I was all ready to start with the spring summer trends this week (kicking off with colour), but with the unexpected arrival of the ‘Beast from the East’ I can think of nothing other than jeans, jumpers and teddy bear coats! Sounds strange I know, who would want to dress up as a teddy bear after all, but for me this is one trend I seriously missed the picnic on.
Now, I love the high street and the fast fashion we have access to but this is one item to buy wisely as it can look really cheap. Always take a peak at the high end designers for inspo, that’s what the professionals will have done too. Max Mara is the leader of the ‘fash pack’ when it comes to the teddy coat (make sure you click the link to see why), but at just over £1.7k, and no, that’s not a mistype, you can see how hard the high street Buyers have to work to give the catwalk styles a run for their money….literally.
H&M did a great rip off, needless to say it sold out over and over and now you can probably find it on Ebay with a 50% mark up! Most of the good ones have gone into the sale and been snapped up, but if like me, this style of coat is something you’re still hankering after then there are handful of bear like beauties still to be found on the high street.
I’m pretty sure I’ll be heading to Next for mine as one caught my eye in there the other day. I tried it on, loved it, instagrammed it and still don’t know how I left without it?!
I’ve linked the Next one below along with my best of the rest.
