If there is one thing I have been looking forward to, it was visiting Paris this winter. I’ve been coming back to Paris every year for five years now and  I just can’t help myself falling in love with it over and over again.  Though I’ve never visited Paris in winter before. Therefore I was determined to find the perfect warm and snugly coat.

I think we’ve all spotted the Max Mara teddy coat trend on Instagram. For me, it was love at first sight. Though the price tag didn`t lie, way over my budget. Thus began the search for a teddy coat with the same look and feel of that amazing Max Mara coat. After trying about a million teddy coats just not cutting it, I found this Stand coat. It basically had everything I was looking for, including the right price tag.  The gorgeous camel tone, perfect length and fit. The best thing about this coat? It basically matches my entire wardrobe to a tee.

So what to look for when purchasing a teddy coat. Some of the most important things are fit and material. I love my teddy coats a little oversized, though I found it pretty difficult to find the right (oversized) fit. I really suggest to try on a lot of different coats in order to find the one that fits you perfectly. Also finding a teddy coat with the right quality material can be a bit difficult, definitely when looking for a more affordable coat. Often the material just doesn’t feel soft and looks really rough. Therefore I really recommend going to the store and not buy your coat online. I ordered two from an online store, they looked fine online, but really didn`t live up to the dream when they arrived.

Below I’ve linked some of my favourite teddy coats. I hope this will make your search a little easier!
