Long line cardigans are the perfect go-to pieces at this time of year – they’re comfy, great for layering and add a sophisticated edge to any outfit. The long-line cardigan, or coatigan as it’s commonly called, is not only the perfect trans-seasonal piece but will keep you covered even with the temperature starts to plummet.

The key to nailing this look is choosing the right length for you. If you’re petite you don’t want your long line cardi to swamp you so opt for a style that falls just below your knee. If you’re a tad taller you can go all the way with a cardigan that falls just above your ankle.

The look can be worn comfy and casual during the day with your favourite pair of sneakers or dressed up with heels for a more high fashion take on this trend. Here are a few cool ways to wear this look and scroll down to the bottom of the page to shop a few of our faves.
