The Scarlet Teddy Coat With Boots

The Reiss Scarlet Teddy Coat With Boots

I get excited to write a blog post when I have a story to tell you about the item I’m wearing. That’s the case with this coat here! This is the Reiss Scarlet Teddy Coat in Grey and I originally fell in love with it in the store, on a whim after I had gone in to look for a pink coat I’d seen online. I saw this one hanging on the rail and thought it looked really pretty. They had a UK 4, which is two sizes smaller than my regular size UK 8, but as it was oversized, I tried it anyway, and absolutely loved how it looked!

I wore it over a dress back in August in the changing room and was obsessed! It was a bit expensive so I left the store, but had thought about it all the time. I went back in a couple of weeks later and tried a UK 6 as the 4 was gone, but the 6 was just too big as I didn’t want it massive. As luck would have it, a couple of weekends ago they had a 10% off weekend and I had already got a £40 voucher from last year, so I ordered this Reiss Scarlet coat online and was really happy with the discount. I love it when something works out like that and I get a really good deal!

So this is the outfit that I wore my new coat with, I’d planned to layer it over my Topman Sweater, paired with my new L’AGENCE Margot Jeans in Grey, tucked into my DUO Empress Boots and finished off with my Chanel Wallet On Chain Bag. I went for a total monochrome vibe here and really like it. It turned out to be one of those outfits that actually gets you a lot of looks too, which I think was down to the coat and the boots as they’re quite statement pieces. I’m actually headed to London now and am planning on taking it with me too, so there will be more outfits to see with it for certain! Anyway, as always, please do leave me a comment with your thoughts on this look! Do you like the coat? I had mixed feedback on it because of the texture, but I love the teddy material! Lorna xx.

    Such a cosy coat and I love the sleek monochrome outfit! I really like this trend, the coats look so soft, but also too warm for our mild winters here in Brisbane, so I just admire them on others!

    Hope that you are having a great week 🙂

    Ah yes loving the monochromatic vibe! The coat is super fun and looks comfy even though it was a smaller size and the boots and bag are killer!

    Such a great combination of greys or different shades and textures – and I do think this outfit is just as much about textures as it is colours. The coat is such a bold choice in terms of texture so I’m not surprised that it’s got you quite a bit of attention as it’s very striking and memorable. I like it very much, myself, and it looks wonderful for the cooler weather. 🙂

      Thank you so much, Steven 🙂 I agree with you, I absolutely love it, but it’s a bit like marmite as a lot didn’t like the texture, ha ha!

    Wow, Lorna what a good combination. I love the boots and the coat a lot. I can almost feel the fabric of the coat.

    oooooh, I’d wear this outfit in a heartbeat! I love it on you! The neutral light grey shade is beautiful on and I love the mix of grey, black and your metallic Chanel purse. Nice you got the discount. I have heard of Reiss and like the quality of their clothing.
    Have a great day and Happy Halloween!
