Is it a coat or a cardigan? The oversized cardigan. The classic cardigan seems to have grown longer, wider and fuller this season. A new word has also been invented “The Coatigan’. Coatigans are a handy coat/cardigan hybrid. They combine the best bits of the coat and cardigan, discarding the not so good aspects. It is lighter than a coat, warmer than a cardigan. They make a great transitional piece. I have been wearing one since July. See it in a previous post teamed with white. It is still going strong and I now wear it with charcoal and navy.
The coatigan above is by Boden // White shirt by Boden // leopard bag Boden // brown belt Boden // Straight leg jeans John Lewis. There is a lovely long cardigan at MeandEm (available in grey, black & navy 100% merino wool 30% reduction in their sale)
The images above were taken last year so I guess I was ahead of the game. I wore this blue cardigan often, outside when the weather was mild and indoors to keep cosy when it was cold.
PS. On another subject I am greatly honoured to be featured on Vicki Archer’s magnificent blog. If you are not familiar with Vicki or her blog I would highly recommend that you check it out. Vicki’s style and elegance is faultless and her blog reflects the way she lives. She runs a great series “Her point of view” where she shares the lifestyles of her readers. It is very inspiring.
