Ladies and gentlemen, may I introduce to you: the coatigan!
*Originally published 12/18 – updated 11/19.
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.
A few years ago, I saw my blogger friend, Stefanie, wearing 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 last year).
