How to wear a Coatigan

October 15, 2015


I have talked about trends many times on the blog and my feelings about following them.  You always have to stay true to what works for you regardless of trends.  I was skeptical at first sight of the coatigan.  Being short I feared it would just emphasize my lack of height.  When Tulip, a local boutique on the Country Club Plaza  asked me if I would style it I paused to see if it really fit my style.  I thought about it for a few days and agreed to give it a try.  At first I failed miserably.  I paired it with  cuffed jeans and a loose top and booties but realized I had toooo many breaks in the outfit for the eye to follow.  It only made me look as wide as I am tall!  Not flattering.   It needed to stand out.  Be the focal point of my outfit.  Streamlining my look with minimal breaks I paired it with a graphic tee drawing on the burgundy stripe and continuing the eye to the bottom of the sweater with black leggings and my favorite booties.  The coatigan trend receives high marks from me.  I loved the way it all came together and was able to stay warm in the cooler morning hours and as the day wore on peel of layers starting with my scarf  and hat, then switching out the booties, and finally the sweater.

Pop over to the Tulip facebook page and see how two other local bloggers styled their coatigan and be sure to vote for my look!
