On some of the coldest days of winter, I like to take style cues from one of my childhood storybook characters, Paddington Bear. By wearing a thick duffle coat (also known as a toggle coat) with a pair of wellies and floppy hat, I'm ready to face the day! Dating back to the British Royal Navy in the early 1900s, duffle coats rose to popularity in the 1960s and remain a winter wardrobe staple today. We've come a long way from the days of plain camel-colored duffle coats. These days you can find duffle coats in different colors and styles. Take a look at this bright cherry red coat from Guess. You'll definitely stay warm with this hooded wool coat lined with Thinsulate! Whether you call them duffle coats or toggle coats, take a look at my slideshow for more!
