It's a Sweater. It's a Coat. It's a Sweater-Coat, and I Want All of Them

·2 min read

Like most of us this year, my top priority in the fashion department has been comfort. With so much uncertainty in the world recently, my anxiety has been at an all-time high. Thankfully, I've found comfort in making both my home and wardrobe as warm and cozy as possible—meaning it's the soft fabrics for me. This is why there's one coat trend, in particular, this year that has my attention: the sweater-coat.

What is a sweater-coat? It's essentially a cozy sweater in coat form. It has the structure and silhouette of a coat but is made of a soft knit fabric that you actually want to wear. Since comfort is king these days, I'm dubbing the sweater-coat my personal It item of winter 2021. Whether layered over another sweater style, a shacket, or a blouse, this cozy coat makes your outfit feel polished yet comfortable at the same time. Below, shop the 22 best sweater-coats I've seen. Plus, see how fashion girls are styling theirs right now.
