What do you do when the weather is a tad too warm for a coat but a little too chilly for a cardigan? Pop on a coatigan of course! Coatigans, as the name suggests, are a mash-up between a coat and a cardigan and is absolutely perfect for those in-between days where the weather cannot make up its mind, in other words – autumn.
The great things about coatigans is that they do not cost as much as coats and as a garment they are so versatile. You can use them for layering by putting on a thin turtle-neck sweater underneath, or if it is warmer just team with a long sleeved tee-shirt.
