The Coatigan: A Cozy WFH Essential

What is a Coatigan you ask? A cross between a coat and a cardigan. Some are more coat. Some more cardigan. The idea, however, stays the same. You look chic in a semi-structured topper while feeling cozy and snug in your home office. Add a scarf and a hat, and you can head out to run an errand.

What did I wear most in March and April when I was dressing more casually? My favorite patterned Coatigan. In fact, it has now seen better days. Hmm…I know just where I might find a replacement.

Happy Shopping!

My favorite option is the J.Crew Ella Open-Front Long Sweater-Blazer, although I can’t decide which color to buy! It comes in charcoal, camel, and the pink pictured. A good camel is so hard to find and this one is perfect.
