20 Must Have Stylish Teddy Borg Coats
Teddy coats are my absolute favourite! I’ve loved them for a couple of years, but I never purchased one because I wasn’t sure how to style it without it making me look twice my size, and frumpy. When I saw the one on Topshop though last month, I bought it instantly, then tried it on in the mirror to be disappointed by how massive it was, but it wasn’t until I tried it on with an outfit (this one) that I actually saw how cute it looked and how it works wonders when you get the proportions right.
Now they’ve quickly become my go to style and I can’t get enough, so much so that I have ordered this Topshop one in burgundy (below) as it was just released, and of course I’m eyeing up the tan brown from H&M, just to cover all my bases, but how many teddy coats is too many? Ha ha. My biggest plus point for teddy coats though is how warm they are, seriously. Usually coats can let the chill in, but due to the thick insulation of these with the piled up borg material, it lets no air through (well mine doesn’t anyway) so it acts like faux fur in the sense that it’s heat trapping and incredibly warm.
Since a borg teddy coat is so easy to just throw on, whether I have skinny jeans on with a crop top and boots, or leggings paired with trainers, it works really well because of the proportions, so I always look stylish, and adorable at the same time – isn’t that a winning combination? I’ve found the key to making it balanced is by having leggings/skinny jeans/bare legs on the bottom so that there’s no bulky extra fabric around the bottom half. The coat itself is really quite thick, so you need to make sure it’s just the coat that is the bulkiest item in the outfit, so it doesn’t overwhelm your frame. I’ve also seen most ladies wear them this way, and men, so it’s all about the legwear staying close fitting.
Since my new found love for teddy coats is here to stay, I thought it would be nice to share my top 20 choices of teddy coats and teddy jackets (or borg, depending what name you call the fabric) with you so that you have some options too! I’ve mostly chosen the affordable high street options, but there are a couple of more expensive ones. I think the H&M styles look fantastic, and I really do recommend the Topshop versions in either of the colours as mine is just perfect! It’s as much a go to casual coat for me as it is a slightly dressed up version. So here are my 20 options below! Just click the names below each image and it will take you to buy them. What’s your opinion on teddy coats? Lorna xx.
