The clocks have changed which means we’re going towards darker and colder times. All I feel like in these times is being snuggled up in bed or on the sofa and not venture outside. But with my new jacket, I love being outdoors. This black teddy jacket* from Lily Lulu Fashion is SO cosy! It doesn’t just look and feel like a teddy bear stroking it, it feels like being snuggled by one when wearing it. It’s the best jacket I could have asked for this winter season.

I love a good jacket and come spring and autumn time, there are so many nice and stylish ones to wear. Sadly only for a couple of weeks and then it either gets too hot (summer) or too cold (winter) to wear them. A winter coat on the other hand will stay around for months so it best be a cosy one. This black teddy jacket is the cosiest I’ve ever owned and I want to live in it.
So far I’ve worn it to a day out in Manchester where these photos were taken. Can you believe it was sunny in Manchester but who doesn’t love a crisp sunny autumn day? The jacket was almost too warm at certain times but when walking back to the train station late evening it kept me nice and warm. I’ve also been caught in a downpour wearing it and although the hood saves your hair from getting wet and frizzy, I wouldn’t recommend the jacket getting soaked. No harm done though, it’s still as soft and cosy.
The jacket itself has a very simple with a silky lining and two big pockets. The hood makes it extra cosy and I love that it’s slightly oversized. Sometimes the simplest things are the best. I got a size M as I wanted to make sure to have room for a thicker jumper or cardigan underneath, should it get very cold later in the year. It’s always good to leave room for layering.
If you too want to feel snuggled up when heading outside this winter season, I strongly suggest you invest in a teddy jacket or coat. I choose a short model as I believe a coat will have made me look like I’d been swallowed by a bear. A coat normally looks more dressed than a jacket but I think this will work both for casual and smart dress codes. Weather it’s a day out or an evening do.
