Christmas mood in Vienna

I am so happy to live for so many years in one of the most beautiful European cities – Vienna, where the magic before Christmas is so compelling. The countless lights and the glamorous decoration, all of it makes your soul realise that Christmas is coming.

I love the small local streets with their small curious shops, that seem to lead you to another world, especially in the evening. Nothing compares to that – magic is all around in the air…

As for my outfit today – I am definitely all about the teddy coats this season and I love this one in pink. It’s so fluffy and cosy, that it makes the Christmas magic mood even more magical. It is safe to say that I’ve never been wrapped up in anything warmer or cosier than this @zara outfit – fake fur trousers, black booties, coat and sweater.

No doubt, I feel like this year my coat wardrobe is consistently expanding, but my favourite one there is always the teddy coat. It’s the thing to go to with almost everything. So If you’re only looking to make a few firm outerwear investments this season, then stake your claim right now for teddy coats, of course, in a fashion way.

Adding some leopard pattern

Never thought I’d see the day when I would reach for leopard prints, but these shoes are so comfortable and cute, that I couldn’t resist.

I thought it’s fun to add some trendy prints to the accessories, especially when the rest of the outfit is more neutral. There are many different kinds or boots, high heels or sneakers with similar prints, but I like this one which makes the figure elegant and gracious, just like the walk of a real leopard.

To highlight the shoes in this outfit I chose a black tunic from one of my favourite brands and transparent Calzedonia leggings, which I find to be a great combination. I match them, of course, with one of my this season best-loved teddy cosy coats – this time in beige.

Teddy coat trend

All over the streets, the teddy coat has been worn by various faces. It’s clear that this new outwear has taken over today’s street style and almost everyone likes it.

The teddy jacket trend revolves around the look of a cozy, faux fur coat that seems to resemble a teddy bear, hence the appropriate name. The trend that started back in 2016 is still around with its classic style while at the same time evolving into different colors, shapes and silhouettes.

After the fall of 2018, it was clear that the appeal of the teddy coat has tremendously increased. The coat also goes by other names such as faux fur, soft fur jacket, sherpas, teddy coat and any fuzzy descriptive phrases.

As the teddy coat comes with a lot of versatility, allowing for any person to incorporate their personal touch, influencers and celebrities also manage to style theirs in their own way in order to hop on the trend. 

All that said – will this trend last? I would say it will stay, for several reasons – it’s cosy, comfortable and warm – ideal for the cold months; at the same time it’s street style and fashionable; it keeps being promoted for already several years in a row, and last but far from least – it is fake leather, no animals harmed.

In the upcoming years, the teddy coat may become even more of a „classic staple“ just like the leather jacket in the past. When buying clothes I always consider if I would be able to wear them more than one season, but with this one I have no worries – I know, no matter the color or style, it will keep finding the way out of my wardrobe.

My outfit today is, of course, with a soft faux fur hooded coat in a yellow trendy color, matched with my always favourite, no matter the brand, skinny jeans from Only and a checkered dark blue shirt (again a trendy color) and black Michael Kors sock sneakers.

Cold weather, tender feeling

Cold weather, winter… The cold dark weather usually makes me feel down, but i can still be happy and enjoy my time because when indoors the atmosphere is so different – cosy and warm. Even better when I have a softy tender sweater on – the kitten soft feeling is so incredible. I cant stop snuggling up to it – so do not fight the cold feeling, catch a tender one!

And a yellow touch is always a good idea, matching also with the evening light. Days are short in winter, but the spring is coming soon, in which season yellow will continue to be trendy.

Cosy evening in black & white

My post today is an evening post as I am in a wonderful place with great surroundings, dressed in my favourite colors black and white – black as the coming evening and white as the bright thoughts coming with the pre-holiday mood. In addition black accessories like black over-knee boots can be a perfect match.

My bear outlook out in the nature

My post today is from a place which in winter seems like a fairytale but it has its beauty also in autumn and although I am used to see these places and ski slopes being covered in white, in green they are majestic, too.

Being a big ski fan I would be wearing my skiing outfits in winter when in the mountains, but this time I decided to show you a style I‘ve been obsessed with which matches well with the surroundings – the teddy bear style.

The teddy bear coat trend is all around this fall-winter season and when I saw one for the first time I thought I would look like a giant bear with it, but the soft feeling made me change my mind. That’s why i think no matter how many coats you have in your wardrobe – a teddy bear one would make a perfect complement. Worn as casual wear, it can also easily become an addition to an evening look. It can easily be combined with leather pants, denim or even with a luxe dress and over the knee boots.

So, there is nothing i love more in the cold weather than what makes me feel cosy and warm – and this incredible soft piece has it all.
