The sweater coat is quickly becoming one of the hottest trends in women's fashion, and no wonder! The sweater coat has everything the traditional sweater has: warmth, comfort, style, but the longer look, and ability to wrap snuggly around your body adds an extra element of comfort and style.
Many retailers are offering sweater coats right now, and they're coming in all different style. Most popular seems to be the full length sweater coat, a garment that is knit in standard sweater wool, (Alpaca, lambswool, cashmere). The coat itself can be either ankle length, mid-calf length or knee length. Additional features such as buttons, ties or wraps, toggles, clasps, pockets, fur, and hoods add embellishments that can fit with anyone's style preferences. And sweater coats, like pullover sweaters come in a variety of beautiful colors and patterns.
Also popular is the short sweater coat. Instead of coming to the knee, short sweater coats typically end at the thigh, hip or waist. Again, it might come as a wrap sweater, or it may have a hood, but surely whatever style you're looking for, you'll be able to find it in a sweater coat.
The sweater coat is usually worn like a traditional sweater. You should swear some sort of undergarment underneath, like an undershirt or blouse. If the weather is mild enough, you may be able to leave the house with no additional coat. However, do not mistake the sweater coat for a regular cold weather coat! If you're planning on wearing a sweater coat, it's best to wear a coat that will cover it - no one wants to be seen wearing a long sweater coat with a short jacket!
