Hitting that Sweet Spot between the structure of a jacket and the ease of a cardigan, a sweater coat (or jacket) may just be the perfect garment. When J.Crew came out with their “Sophie” sweater blazer a couple of years ago, I did a happy dance and purchased in multiple colors. I still love it; it’s easy to style, comfortable, and a perfect weight for several months out of the year in our climate.
I’d noticed iterations of sweater coats showing up in various brands’ collections (sometimes as “coatigans”) over the last few seasons. But as of this fall, they are everywhere.
Clean and bold, love this red and camel colorblock!
This ombré pattern is distinctive without being shouty.
I like the soft diagonal windowpane-ish pattern on this one.
Short And Sweet: Sweater Jackets
A little more slouchy, this oversized navy sweater jacket is a transitional season alternative to a peacoat.
Do you have any sweater coats/jackets in your wardrobe? Do you prefer longer or shorter, or both?
