I always get cold at restaurants. It seems that somewhere between ordering my meal and being served, cold air starts blasting from a vent directly above me. Even in the cold weather of New England Falls and Winters, somehow the air is always cold. So the challenge is to find a sweater that keeps me warm but still looks good. For this purpose, I love Zattcas Women’s Long Sleeve Open Cardigan Sweater.
This sweater is lightweight but warm. Despite being a polyester/nylon mix, it gives the look a tightly woven cashmere blend. But unlike a cashmere blend, it retains its shape through daily use.
I really like how versatile this sweater is. It can be dressed up or down depending on circumstances. It works with jeans and a tee, or a silk blouse and slim line trousers. I love how it looks open, as it is intended, but it always looks fantastic with a decorative belt to cinch in the waist. My gym is at the college where I teach, so I frequently run into colleagues on my way in and out of the gym. This sweater is great for putting on over my workout outfit before I leave to maintain a professional look.
I am rather fascinated by how form conscious the sweater is. I always thought of open cardigans as frumpy by nature, but this cardigan is fitted through the shoulders and bust, and then gradually hangs, while lying mostly flat in front. So while most open cardigans will make you look bigger than you are, this one actually shows off how skinny you are! The length is flattering as well. It is long, but not so long that it makes you look shorter. That is an impressive feat for a sweater.
It is incredibly comfortable as well. Since it is lightweight, it doesn’t feel too bulky, and because it lays well, the fabric doesn’t get in the way. It also is fairly wrinkle resistant, which makes it perfect for travel.
