When the cold, crisp winter hits and the temperature starts dropping a few degrees, knitwear becomes essential. And if you're bored with your regular knitwear or looking for a style rotation, you should definitely get a men's coatigan in your closet. Slouchy, grungy and, most importantly, comfy, a coatigan is a trendy new garment that is a combination of a coat and a cardigan. Meaning, it is a cardigan with the functionality of a coat. Trust us, it is as sartorially appealing as it sounds.
Men's Coatigan: Everything You Should Know About
Below are a few tips to help you find a well-fitting men's coatigan and a few outfit ideas at your disposal, so you have plenty of options next time you’re stuck and unsure how to wear it.
How To Wear A Men's Coatigan?
Combine a coatigan with beige dress pants and a striped t-shirt. Round off this stylish look with Brown suede derby shoes.
You can also wear a coatigan with a white t-shirt and blue jeans for an outfit that is well put together and looks relaxed. Complete your ensemble with a pair of grey canvas low top sneakers.
Pair your buttoned-down coatigan with charcoal chinos for a foolproof off-duty outfit. Complete the look with white sneakers to create a contrast in your getup.
A beige coatigan over a black tee with navy dress pants makes for the ultimate casual winter ensemble for any man. Introduce a beanie and a pair of brown suede desert boots to the equation.
Wear a coatigan in place of a sport coat with a formal shirt and trousers. Add in a tie and tuck it inside the coatigan for an elegant office ensemble. Complete the look with leather double monk strap shoes.
How Should A Men's Coatigan Fit?
Although most coatigans are thicker wool-blend knits, they shouldn’t compromise the fit you’re looking for. Looking for a piece with relatively high armholes, trim sleeves and hem that hits just at or below your belt line. A boxier fit can also work, depending on how you plan on wearing it. Don't get a coatigan that's too tight to make sure there's enough room for layering.
What Are The Best Colours For A Men's Coatigan?
As with most coats in your wardrobe, finding a coatigan in a versatile colour is important. Medium grey or classic black are solid options that can be paired with everything. If you already have a medium grey or black coatigan and want more options, go for other menswear neutral colours like navy, charcoal, beige and tan. Many coatigans come in these colours.
V-neck cardigans are good for layering and all, but for a more rugged edge, there is no match to the men's coatigan. It is a smart and casual menswear addition to any man’s wardrobe. You can't really go wrong with styling it either. But we hope our outfit ideas helped you get started.
