Is it a cardigan? Is it a coat? No, it's a coatigan!

Winter is here and Spring is just around the corner, so it’s time to consider whether your wardrobe needs updating.

Fashion designers decided that we need a brand new word to describe something what is around for ages. The coatigan is a cross between a coat and a cardigan.

Basically a thick heavy cardigan for those in-between days when mother nature decides to mess everyone around and make it chilly, but not cold enough for the full on winter coat. It could be knit or crocheted with cables or intarsia. It’s also a unisex trend, so be prepared to see all the male fashionistas rocking the look this Spring season too.


Coatigans Dos and Don’ts :

A few important does and don’ts for the Coatigan :

1) DO wear your coatigan with the belts

3) It look great with either a long boot or Stellar heels but don’t go to casual.

4) Don’t just go for the usual Grey/Black winter palette, try other colors!

5) Balance out a large chunky Coat Cardigan by teaming it up with some skinny jeans or leggings
