The Coatigan is About to Change Your Winter Wardrobe

Ladies and gentlemen, may I introduce to you: the coatigan!

This simple piece is about to become your winter wardrobe BFF. It’s a coat and cardigan hybrid and a total winner in my fashion book. On the Chicwish website, it’s marked as an “open cardigan” but friends, it’s so much more than that. When I got this wine-colored one in the mail and slipped it on, I knew it was perfect for the chilly weather! It’s warmer than a cardigan, but not quite as stifling as a coat, so it’s excellent for layering over a thin sweater or tee when running errands – or you can wear it over a sparkly sheath dress in order to be fashionably practical.

I’ll be honest with you right now. My blogger BFF, Stefanie, was the reason I snagged this coatigan in the first place. Last October, I took some photos of her in the blush pink version, and just completely fell in love with the style. I don’t know why it took me this long to purchase one for myself! I’m so glad I finally did, because I’ve already been wearing it like crazy (it was even part of my Thanksgiving ensemble).

Looking for more coatigan goodness?

Chicwish offers this piece in six different colors, and it’s currently on sale for less than $40! You won’t want to miss out on this deal. I promise, you’ll thank me later. You’re going to wear this coatigan nonstop through the winter season.

And of course, a little bit on the rest of my look.

I was recently sent these Sarsgrove booties from DuoBoots, and let me tell you, these are quite possibly the comfiest pair I’ve ever owned. The leather is butter-soft, and the lining never rubs my feet in the wrong way. The metallic heel is absolutely my favorite part, allowing these shoes to match with any outfit and any style of hardware I choose. They fit true to size, and they’re also available in a teal suede with a glitter heel (can you say “perfect party shoes”?)!

My tee is so nice I bought it twice – both in black and white! Currently it’s on sale for $11.70 in blush or deep purple. It’s the perfect top for layering, and excellent quality. Get it before it goes out of stock for good!

You may see a certain book trying to steal the show in these photos. That’s my new obsession, written by fashion icon and my personal favorite content creator, Tessa Barton (otherwise known as @tezza on Instagram)! This book is chock-full of helpful tips for navigating the saturated influencer marketplace, tons of inspiration for taking photos, and way more! It’s not only a great gift idea for Christmas, but something I definitely recommend every blogger and content creator read ASAP!

    The coatagan does seem perfect for those chillier days before the true cold sets in. I love this shade of red on you as well!

      It’s also great when it gets super cold out, because it’s not too thick and can be layered under another coat quite easily!

    I love that word “coatigan” I have a few of them myself but never addressed with that name 🙂 Love the color of the one you have on. It looks great on you.

      I hadn’t even heard that name until another blogger friend of mine used it to describe hers, and then when I searched it on Pinterest – sure enough, I found a ton of other inspiration with the same piece. I love the name. It’s the perfect description 🙂

    When you said “coatigan” I had a feeling it was going to be an open cardigan from Chicwish. I love the color and the thickness of it as well.
