Navy Blue Long Teddy Bear CoatFor those of us who love curling up at home on the sofa, surrounded by candles and wearing a mass of cashmere and fleece (socks included), trends that promote cosiness are an absolute treat.  I'm prepared to go above and beyond when it comes to footwear, a love of stiletto heels and fierce designs means my pain threshold is pretty high now on that front, y'know?  But when it comes to clothes there's no compromising.  When it's freezing cold and windy, being comfortable is everything.  Hello teddy bear coats that feel as though you're being wrapped into one big, cosy hug...

The scale of styling teddy bear coats is pretty vast at this point, you can go for a subtle version (such as the navy boucle beauty featured in this post), or push the boat out and resemble a literal teddy bear by opting for thick, chunky fleece.  Either way, hugging just got ten times more enjoyable this season!  This isn't the only teddy bear coat I've picked up recently and so you'll definitely be seeing some more styling options pop up on A Glass Of Ice over the next few months.  For this look, I've taken the opportunity to whip out my new PU leggings (anyone else obsessed with leather-look leggings lately?) and a chunky knit jumper on top.  No matter how you choose to style your new teddy bear coat, the key seems to be not letting it drown you.  Quick fix?  Layers, layers and more layers.  Speaking of which, with Christmas gifts in mind, if you're shopping for someone who loves padding around home in fluffy socks, cosy layers are a fabulous option to keep in mind when doing your Christmas shopping!  Working from head to toe, you could treat a comfort-lover to: a pom-pom hat from rising label Amelia Jane London, Jack Wills Gift Card for their choice of faux-fur lined parkas and cosy padded jackets, or sheepskin slippers to slip their feet into this winter.  I've just treated myself to a pair of Just Sheepskin slippers in chocolate brown and literally can't wait for them to arrive!

Pretty sure I'm biased, but I... (murmurs)... reckon it's cool to be cosy.  At the very least, it's cool not to hear your teeth chattering in the middle of November, right?!  Teddy bear coats are my absolute faves right now - how do you feel about the trend?  Let me know in the comments below...
