When it’s a coatigan of course! Yes I know, it’s one of those tenuous fashion buzz words popular this season, but I have to admit, I’m loving the coatigan. It looks smart like a coat but it’s light and soft like cardigan. Genius!
I first got to try this beautiful garment on at Plus North and instantly fell in love with it. So when ELVi kindly offered to send it to me I did a bit of an air punch! I have to be very careful though because my mother is already gunning for it. When she came round and saw it hanging on the door she did a little squeal and tried it on with much oohing and ahhing.
You see that’s the beauty of a piece like this, it’s so classic that it appeals to all ages and how it looks is completely dependant on how you style it. The coatigan is a soft knit made of 100% lambswool with a PU trim. I’m wearing a size 1 which is a 16/18, but as you can see it’s really generous, so there is loads of scope for different sizes, I’d say the size 3 would fit up to a 28/30 easily.
It also comes in black which is so beautiful, but I love the autumnal orangey, rust shade of this one, it’s just perfect for this time of year. Style it with a shift dress and opaque tights for a work look, or leggings, a chunky jumper and biker boots for a sunday stroll.
