Our beautiful, timeless Layer Jacket now available in our Brushed Venezia Jersey an ultra-soft, technical-stretch fiber, for a more casual relaxed look. A classic drape style travel cardigan with long cozy sleeves has an understated elastic gathering at the waist to allow volume yet help camouflage hips without hiding your waistline. A transitional piece that is great to layer as the weather goes from cool to warm and is perfect for both slim and fuller-figured body types. This Versatile Cardigan can be styled in many ways. Used as an elegant swim cover-up, a classic equestrian jacket silhouette, a glamorous empire waist tunic, to a casual knotted soft jacket.
“Our Secret is the transparent elastic strategically placed at the waistline. This allows volume across the hips and bottom without taking away the shape of a smaller waistline. The hidden elastic also creates security and support when tying in the front. We also included our Signature Rolled Hem detail hem so it can go from casual to dressy.”
Unlike traditional multi-way cardigans, this design does not give you a tent like the shapeless silhouette but rather a more tailored look without sacrificing comfort. Diane Kroe strives to create travel perfect designs that are easy, elegant and effortless to transform. For a dressier version of this style try our Layer Jacket In Venezia Travel Jersey.
