I have been wanting a coatigan (mesh between cardigan and coat) since last year. They are great for dressing up or down and I finally found the perfect version here. The J Crew Ella coatigan is perfect because it can be dressed up or down and comes in multiple colors. After I saw another blogger style this so many ways last year, I knew I had to have it since it’s such a versatile piece for fall and winter. I think this would also look fabulous in the spring with colorful work trousers or white denim too!
I am 5’4″ for reference and I think it runs big. I am wearing my normal XS in the camel color and XXS in pink, but I honestly could go down 2 sizes in this (the XXXS is unfortunately sold out). I will note, it does not have buttons or snaps, so it stays open like a cardigan. J Crew has sales so frequently, so I would recommend waiting to snag this on sale instead of buying full price.
Sizing reference: I am 5’4″ and typically XS in tops and 25 in bottoms.
J Crew Camel Ella Coatigan
I am wearing an XS (my normal size) here. On someone much taller, I think your normal size would be okay.
J Crew Pink Ella Coatigan
This is the pink version of the coatigan above, but in XXS. I still think it looks kind of large on me but definitely more fitted than the XS camel. The pink would be so pretty for Spring too!
