When the weather gets cool there’s nothing like a classy cardigan sweater to warm you up and to layer over your clothes. They’re also perfect to cover up a woman over 50’s muffin-top and other flaws. A while back, I was given the opportunity to review an item from NIC+ZOE
After browsing their online shopping website, I picked out a beige/gold-fringed long cardigan sweater that immediately stood out to me.
I love fun and unusual designs and adored this artistic cardigan with gold flecks and fringe. The sleeves are 3/4 length, which I love because I regularly dip my sleeves in my soup. It’s also the most flattering sleeve length for older women. In the image above, I wore black pants and a black shell top underneath to disguise a few lumps I’m diligently trying to work off.
My mother was a dressmaker and spoiled me with clothes.
Mom made all my clothes when I was a kid and was an excellent seamstress. She had her own business as a dressmaker and did alterations. I saw how carefully she placed every stitch and was always proud of the quality of her finished products.
Now, when I shop at a store I cringe at the shoddy work and get frustrated when seams come loose. It’s important to me that my clothes be well constructed. When my cardigan sweater arrived in the mail, I was impressed by how well it was made.
Nic + Zoe evolves
Nic + Zoe is for active and creative women who want to make a fashion statement. Their designs are artful and sophisticated but also functional. The company was started in 2006 by Dorian Lightbown. She wanted to move women away from a structured business suit to a much more individual and chic look that works in an office and into the night.
I find their clothes to be inspired and innovative with flattering lines, particularly their knits.
All of their designs exude an urban chic but are comfortable and move with you.
