The Universal Cardigan: Style Inspiration From A Model

Feb 2, 2021
Aimee Thompson

O ne of our favorite aspects of our eco-friendly Universal Cardigan is how adaptable it is to each individual’s personal style. Throughout the product testing and photoshoot processes, we were blown away by how truly universal the cardigan is. We tried it on a wide range of models of varying heights and body types as well as different genders, and saw over-and-over again how seamlessly it fit each one. As we prepare to release the Universal Cardigan for pre-sale on our site, we wanted to serve you up some styling inspiration from one of our stunning Universal Cardigan models, Brie.

As An Eco-Friendly Beach Coverup

We love how Brie styled the cardigan with a neutral swim top and light joggers. This look is perfect for those LA winter sunsets on the beach keeping you just warm enough as you soak up ALL that Vitamin D and take in the gorgeous view.

IN 2021 WE’LL BE SOAKING UP ALL THE SUNSHINE WE MISSED OUT ON DURING QUARANTINE 2020.

As A Sustainably Chic Draped Hoodie

By draping the cardigan over her shoulder, Brie created an eco-chic draped hoodie aesthetic that we are absolutely here for! This look can be easily dressed up or down. Pair it with an elegant pant and sleek footwear for a socially distant date on a cool evening, or with your favorite yoga leggings for a cozy night in. Note: The beautiful draping effect is a result of using an ethically sourced fabric blend of Lenzing’s certified TENCEL Lyocell (one of the most sustainable fabrics on the planet!).

IS ANYONE ELSE GETTING RENAISSANCE PAINTING VIBES???

With A Dash of Ethical & Regal Sophistication

With this look, Brie makes it clear that the Universal Cardigan isn’t simply an environmentally consciously sweater, it’s a statement piece. Pair this look with a bold lip (the world may not be able to see it through your mask, but everyone will feel your fierceness) for your trip to the store to purchase marmalade instead of jelly because that’s what royalty does.

DID THE QUEEN INVITE BRIE TO TEA, OR IS BRIE IN FACT THE QUEEN?

With Just A Touch Of Eco-Conscious Attitude

Oh, is that what the (clever) pocket-loop enclosure’s for? Absolutely! And, we know we keep saying this, but the draping effect is just dreamy. We love how Brie was able to emphasize how dynamic the cardigan is by utilizing the pocket loop enclosure! We’re fans of this style being worn everywhere, every day, and for every occasion--especially while striking this post.

PAINT ME LIKE ONE OF YOUR SUSTAINABLE COATIGAN MODELS.

As A Romantic Sustainable Shawl

Thank you, Brie, for reminding us that socially distanced date nights can still be whimsical. The light, floral print tank gives it the perfect sweet and elegant touch. Just add your favorite eco-friendly mask (*ahem*) for an added air of mystery. Pair this with your favorite date-night outfit and then promenade with your lover across the moonlit shoreline.

WHEN YOU LIKE RESPONSIBLY SOURCED CLOTHING BUT PREFER RECKLESS LOVE STORIES...

As An Ethically Sourced Face Covering

We love how Brie took her COVID protection game to the next level by using the cardigan as an added barrier! Pair this style with your best mask for any essential activities/errands. Added bonus: it also functions as a conversation deterrent--see someone you had a terrible Tinder date with? Well, that’s okay because they can’t recognize you in this disguise! Finish your errands in peace knowing that this ethically made cardigan will protect your identity while simultaneously keeping you cozy.

EXTRA COVID PROTECTION, BUT MAKE IT FASHION.

As A Sustainable Cozy Hiding Place

Brie to the rescue! Who knew a comfortable, eco-friendly, cardigan could also be the perfect escape from socially awkward situations? We recommend having a warm cup of tea handy (you may be in there for a while).

WHEN YOU NEED A BREAK FROM YOUR CAT THAT YOU’VE BEEN QUARANTINED WITH SINCE MARCH 2020.

For A Dramatic Layered Look

Do we mere mortals even deserve the fire looks Brie is serving? We’ll take the inspiration, anyway. Look, we’re going to say it again, but we promise it’ll be the last time (in this post)...the drape of the cardigan layered under a chunky jean jacket...chills. Also, we love the idea of pairing it with a belted tunic and dark tights! For those winter evenings when you want to look effortlessly stylish and sustainably chic.

OH DEAR, LOOK AT ME--FASHIONABLY LATE BUT SUSTAINABLY FASHIONABLE.

A HUGE thank you to, Brie, for the incredible style inspiration! We can’t wait to try out these looks for ourselves!

Not all heroes wear capes, but our Universal Cardigan can be worn as one.
