How to style the coatigan this season

How to style the coatigan this season

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.

Good selection of coatigans at Boden and Nordstrom

    Great look Josephine, looks super belted too. Thank you for recommending Vicki Archer, I have checked her out and subscribed, so hopefully more French chic.

    I love the way you styled yours. I purchased on about 2 months ago at of all places Foever21. I was really surprised by the quality.
