Sweater coats are exactly what they sound like: the mix between a sweater and a coat. That means you can wear them twice as much, too. It hits all the key points of an In The Groove favorite: versatile, comfortable, and classic with a twist.
Let’s add a third piece to the mix. The Sophie knit blazer from J.Crew can be a sweater, a blazer, and a jacket. How’s that for a triple threat? Their Juliette collarless blazer in a fun wintry plaid goes a little bit long, if you’re not into the cropped look. You can always count on Jenni Kayne for updated basics, and I love their heather-gray sweater cardigan. It comes in black, too!
I love this maximalist boho coat and this fun printer version, which are both perfect for sprucing up your everyday white t-shirt and blue jeans uniform. Free People also has an insanely fun pink, teddy bear material cardigan coat that goes down to the floor. If you’re a pattern addict, then you’ll definitely love this houndstooth cardigan coat. It totally gives us Chanel vibes.
Looking for a heavier option? This white cable-knit from Mango is hooded and loaded up with fun design details like toggle buttons. It’s heavy enough to stand on its own, but light enough to wear if the only place you’re going is in between the sofa and the fireplace. How about a ribbed, cozy cream cardigan from Free People?
If you’re on the West Coast, or just somewhere that hasn’t been very cold lately, a sweater coat could be the key to your sweater FOMO. This classic black cardigan coat from Vince is an elevated take on the silhouette, just like you would expect from the brand. It’s sleek, modern, and absolutely beautiful.
