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.

Which is your favorite option? Do you like the solid or the patterned Coatigans? Buttons or no buttons? More sweater or more coat?
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.
