Want a long-line cardi but what do you wear over it on a cold day? - long coat?

well just that really as I don't think my formal long coat is going to look right over long cardi and leggings!

I would prob just layer up under long cardi, scarf, long sleeve teeshirt etc. I don't think wearing a coat over works really.

yeah, I find this awkward too

I have a grey, "crumpled" mac that looks ok, sort of

until it is really cold though, I layer with vest, long sleeve top underneath a dress, thick tights, cardi, woolly scarf, gloves, thick socks, boots and hat

I am usually warm enough for just popping to shops/school yard etc ie. in/out of the car

for longer walks though, probably not enough

You are supposed to wear the cardi instead of a coat.

I leave my coat open if wearing a long cardi.

puppymonkey I don't mean a chunky knit cold weather one - just a fine knit bum/hip length one casual style. Not going to look stylish on the school run if long anorak covers it up!

say thigh length then!

lisasimpson Sun 18-Oct-09 17:55:34

what I mean is longer than most casual coats cover

KristinaM Sun 18-Oct-09 18:48:14

i think it has to be a parka

agree formal coat is a different look

I have a short black single breasted pea coat from Zara that I wear over my long cardi, it looks good I think. Don't do it up though.

It's a bit like this, wear with long grey cardigan and long grey scarf.

I have a good winter coat for wearing over my long cardigans, it is very warm, so Sassenachs may find it a little excessive, but perfect for anyone living in the baltic North of Scotland, here, especially if you do a fair bit of walking.

i agree re layering.

i also think tht one should consider their height

short arses should avoid long coats imo

i love your merrell coat momijigari

Thank you Lovely, it is better in rl, I have had quite a few compliments about it so far, but it is so snugly AND waterproof too, it makes me almost feel prepared for being frozen in the playground this year.

just fold your cardigan up a bit under your coat
