How to Wear a Coatigan
A coatigan is the perfect hybrid of full coat and easy-to-wear cardigan. It gives the warm and cosy effect of a coat but is far more versatile and can be worn indoors just as much as out. We love a coatigan! There's so many ways to wear them and they can be styled for every season.
A cashmere coatigan is a fail safe throw on for early morning walks, school runs or a quick trip to the coffee shop. Layer it over a cosy sweater and joggers co-ord for ultimately effortless style, or wear with loose trousers and shirts for a key on-trend look.
A classic camel coatigan will add a chic twist to an everyday jeans outfit too; it's a style that says you made an effort without trying too hard.
Make it smart
A long coatigan in a dark colour can really ramp up your office attire. They are a great piece to wear into the office because you can layer up when it gets chilly too. Wearing a black coatigan over tailored trousers and a top keeps things simple but classy. Try the all black ensemble for incredible chicness and elegant power dressing.
A coatigan isn't just for winter. When the temperature drops a little on those summer nights, a coatigan is the perfect accessory to reach for. Wear with jeans and a cami top for picnics in the park or thrown on over shorts and sandals if you're heading out for brunch or a spot of sightseeing. If you're heading to a barbecue then always make sure to take your coatigan.
Dresses and Coatigan
A long coatigan looks absolutely stunning over a dress or skirt, in both the warmer and cooler months. Wear a coatigan over a patterned dress to instantly make it feel more balanced, you can even add a belt to cinch in the waist for a more put-together look. Coatigans and smock dresses teamed with luscious cashmere hats and scarves look beautiful when you're heading for a country walk.
