Irish Aran Sweater of the Month : Irish Cable Knit Side Zip Cardigan
The Irish wool Aran cardigan of the month has to be the new cable knit side zip womens cardigan - available in three attractive and versatile colours. This classic look is an update of the time-tested, chic style we already know in its earlier incarnations as the aviator, or the biker jacket. What makes it so fresh - is the change of material from the rather heavy and somewhat common leathers, to expertly woven soft merino wool. With the luxury of a light and breathable merino fabric every stich cable, honeycomb, trellis, and moss becomes an elegant and sleek detail that gives the garment a rich, yet effortless appeal.
Two side-slit pockets bring this contemporary zipper cardigan well into the territory of confident casual attitude (and, so handy for that credit card!). Not only that, but its clever tailoring - to fit neatly on the shoulders, slim sleeves, and a flattering just-bellow-the-belt mid-hip hemline creates a slender and defined visual. This jacket is a certain companion for your good skinny jeans, a dreamy floral dress, or that layered leggings and a long top vibe. Dont be shy to go casual day through to glam night: by kicking off the runner shoe for strappy high-heeled sandals, while sporting ankle grazer pants and a cami top.
Open or zipped over, the side zip Irish Aran cardigan offers plenty of ways to style the neckline. Though its defined, slightly off-side finish is a beautiful occasion for minimalism (tie the scarf to your handbag instead, and ooze eclectic bohemian charm!). As for the colours natural white, oatmeal beige, or marled hunter green there is something for every complexion and hair colour. Natural tones are a blank canvas; and, with stitches as neat and refined there is little need for further ornament (perhaps, some daring contrast with bright lipstick).
