Living in a city with a subtropical climate, boasting year-round periods with warm to hot temperatures leaves us no excuse for letting the sartorial standards slip when the welcome chill swoops in. This season, consider UNIQLO outerwear an effortless way to add a light edge to your everyday look.

The Shearling Coat, affectionately known as the Teddy Coat, is one of those magical pieces that is as plush as it is covetable. It is all the comfort of your childhood teddy bear, in coat form! Its original caramel or the latest blonde complexion ensures the piece, with a usually roomy silhouette, is perfect for layering- It’s not bulky like an ‘actual’ winter coat.

When comfort fuses with contemporary femininity in an unpredictable time weather-wise, know you’ve got the look just right. The shearling coat promises to elevate whatever you’re hiding beneath it. The season’s low-temperature days call for light-but-sturdy layering pieces, and this is your start.

The cool-girl appeal of the 70s music icons, that enlisted fame on this style item, wears perfectly with anything in your cool-weather wardrobe.


A favourite way to wear the fuzzy statement tailored coat is to coordinate tonal separates for an elevated take on off-duty dressing. The caramel colour of the faux shearling creates a coherent look that, when paired with the right loungewear, screams chic. Thanks to its oversized silhouette, you can pair it with your chunkiest knits too. Remember, a sneaker always grounds a sweat set and gives it that street appropriate appeal.
