The Cookie Monster Coat

Processed with VSCO with a6 presetProcessed with VSCO with a6 presetAs much as I hate the cold, there’s nothing I love more than a good piece of outerwear. Sherpa, puffer, wool, teddy, faux fur, you name it, I’m all ~heart-eyes emoji~ for it.

So when I spotted this steely blue, shaggy topper during H&M’s post-holiday sale for only $25 I nearly fell out of my chair. In just a few clicks, it was added to my cart and happily on its way to me.

And I’m certainly not the only one who swooped in on this major steal. This coat has been popping up ALL over my Instagram feed. My guess is it’ll be dubbed as this season’s ‘it’ coat, let’s just wait and see.

I’ve seen this coat styled in so many different ways. It’s been dressed up to the nines with heels and sparkly dresses and I’ve seen it styled more low-key with a graphic tee and skinnies. But even with all those looks to serve as inspiration, I’ve been struggling with incorporating it into outfits.

The coat is a little bit boxy on me so it was tricky to figure out how to style it without it being too overpowering. To avoid looking the like reincarnation of the Cookie Monster, I decided to keep the rest of my look nice and simple by wearing… wait for it… all black. Are you surprised?

I’ve got on my go-to Hollister skinnies, a zipper sweater from the Banana Republic Outlet, and Nine West booties purchased as DSW last season. For finishing touches I popped on my new glasses and curled my new, blonder hair (#RoadToPlatnium2k18) and called it a look.

Now that I’ve finally found a way to style this coat, I’m feeling super inspired to take it up a notch. Expect to see this baby again real soon.

  1. Omg LUV this! Another bomb way to style this I think that could even take it into spring would be with a light wash denim. I think that would totally bring out the blue and be all ~monochromatic~ OR all white. 🙂
