Bridge that tricky cross season gap like a master of style in a coatigan, this season's latest fashion hybrid. A blend of cardigan and coat, coatigans let you inject your outerwear with a high fashion slant, expanding your collection right in time for this year's love of layering.
This season is all about texture, and the coatigan is the perfect excuse to give your outerwear a texture injection. Look to fluffy knits and mohair finishes for a sumptuous feel, and drape these over cotton tees, leather trousers and finish with slick Chelsea boots to really play with fabrics. Blanket coatigan capes are treading the runway this season, and they bring together the pattern clashing trend we love to get lost in. Tartan on tartan is an easy way to channel this look, so seek out checked coatigans to wear with plaid shirts or tartan leggings to go all out, or play the subtle card with a tartan scarf. Bring the look together with a rich winter knit, and you've got the layers covered.
Oversized minimalism gets a makeover for the cooler seasons with coatigans. Layer yours over a crop top and baggy trousers for a little warmth in the sunshine, and stick to muted tones and plain fabrics to get that minimal look just right. Take your coatigan into cold weather and layer it underneath an oversized wool coat for an editorial slant on the winter warmer. Look to similar tones to get the look just right. Cool hues will give you an icy feel in the new year, while berry reds and forest greens offer a festive feel at the end of the year. Keep the look understated with basic layers underneath; black skinny jeans and a soft white boyfriend shirt are your key to refined chic.
