STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Teddy Bear Style

May 5th, 2015 at 2:10am

My fellow Bostonians will understand when I say that it is unbelievable that it is April 28, 38 degrees, rainy and gloomy. Every day I wake up thinking about dressing up without any layers. However, while the Boston gardens keep blooming and we keep shivering, we will just have to layer it up. This Fashionista is sporting a trend that was quite popular among street stylers, the “teddy bear” coat.

This particular garment consists in a fluffy shearling coat which a color just like a brown teddy bear. I love this whole ensemble because it is very neutral: just black, gray and camel, but it is a combination of layers and accessories. This Fashionista did not think twice in simplicity and practicality. Black top and jeans. However, it is the blend of the soft grey long cardigan and the camel shearling coat that elevates the outfit.

Even though every accessory is black, it brings dimensionality to the ensemble. Beanie season is over. Now its time to take out the fedoras. As for the bottom half, a black cross-body bag is perfect for any occasion, even more if it has gold dainty details like this one. Booties? We all know the drill. A good pair of leather booties is on trend all year long.

Want to add a little pop of color? Learn from the best. This Fashionista sports colored mirror sunglasses like a pro.
