Aztec Print Coatigan Styled Two Ways

Global and southwestern prints have always peeked my interest.  When Yours Clothing gifted me this Aztec Printed Coatigan, I fell in love with the muted red and cream color scheme and wanted to show how it can be worn a few ways.  If you follow me, you may remember it was in my round up of pieces in the Statement Coat and Sweater Cardigan Lookbook I did.

What is a coatigan you may ask?  Well, think of it as if a coat and a cardigan fell in love and had a baby.  A coatigan is born!  It has the shape of a coat with dropped sleeves and great thick textured fabric all with the lightness and fly away opening like a cardigan.  It is unlined and has pockets which means it is perfect for those spring days when there is a slight chill in the air.

Prints can be intimidating to some women, especially in the plus size arena.  I for one have never shied away from prints and feel this coatigan is a good example of how great a printed layer can be.  This geometric pattern can be styled girly and dressy as well as cool and casual.  Solids are great to have as basics and prints are what I like to call my piece of interest.  Yes, I want interest!

Here are two ways I styled this Aztec Print Coatigan:

By placing the coatigan over a swing dress, it immediately takes on a dressier feel.  I picked out this nude and pink marled one that Yours Clothing gifted me as well.  I love how the muted red from the coatigan plays with the pink in the dress.

I had fun with accessories here and opted for earthy textures.  A Rose quartz necklace with gold leaves fill in the neckline beautifully and lend to the pink and red color scheme.  To add interest to the waist, a wide dark brown braided belt brings another layer of texture and interest.  A large gold cuff, fringed handbag, and rust colored booties complete this dressy southwestern ensemble.  Curled locks with little braids add a feminine, prairie touch.

For my second look I went more casual with jeans.  I love layering long pieces over skinny jeans and I think this coatigan makes for a great elevated weekend outfit.  A true believer in never having enough white tops, Yours continued with their generosity and gave me this jersey top with zipper detail.  Even though it is a supporting piece under the print, the gold hardware gives it a little somthin’ somthin’!  I did layer a white tank underneath for more coverage.

I kept the coatigan loose this time to flow over the slim bottoms.  The fringed handbag stayed from my first look and I switched up the other accessories but still played on my earthy vibe.  A horn ladder necklace, turquoise ring, and flat booties lend a more casual feel.  Although some of the finishes here are rustic in nature I wanted to keep it sleek and straighten my hair to polish the entire look off.  I even added an oxblood fedora for a little more flair and color!
