Whenever I hear the term “coatigan”, I immediately feel the urge to shout “come again?”, but since it is the most accurate description of this garment, I will refrain. If it wasn’t clear from the name, the coatigan is a hybrid between a coat and a cardigan. All the soft and comfy sweater qualities of a cardi combined with the basic dimensions of the coat. While it is in no way a replacement for a coat, a lesson I learned the hard way, it is a very cute layering piece. They come in ALL shapes and colors (solid, and printed), but I think it works best if you find one in a great seasonal plaid!
