Our beautiful, timeless Layer Jacket is a wardrobe staple. A relaxed drape travel cardigan in our Venezia Travel Jersey. With long cozy sleeves, this Versatile design has an understated elastic gathering at the waist to allow volume to help camouflage hips without hiding your waistline. A transitional piece that is great to layer as the weather gets cooler and perfect for both slim and fuller-figured body types. This jacket can be styled many ways. Use it as an elegant swim cover-up, to a classic equestrian jacket, a glamorous empire waist tunic, to a casual knotted soft jacket.
“It’s the transparent elastic strategically placed just above the waistline that separates this unique design form other travel cardigans by allowing volume across the hips and bottom without taking away the shape of a smaller waistline. We also included our Signature Rolled Hem so it can be both dressy and every day”
Unlike traditional multi-way cardigans, this design does not give you a tent like shapeless silhouette but rather a more tailored shape without sacrificing comfort. Diane Kroe strives to create travel-perfect designs that are easy and effortless to transform. If you want a more casual version try our Brushed Venezia Layer Jacket.
