Story Behind the CAxLZ Bianca Cardigan
No more dressing for seasons!
The CAxLZ Bianca cardigan is a must-have style in your wardrobe! Whether you fall in love with the bronze metallic or prefer something else, we have Bianca available in black, snakeskin, and leopard print. No matter which Bianca you choose, this cardigan will become a closet staple very quickly! While some might see Bianca and a basic cardigan, she is much, much more! The knee length silhouette, slinky material, and pockets are all things that make customers obsessed with Bianca.
Look #1: Daytime Chic
Going on errands? Don’t forget Bianca!
While Bianca has a subtly shimmering bronze metallic fabric, she is perfect for daytime errands or a chic daytime lunch! Pair Bianca with a crisp white t-shirt, a basic pair of jeans, and throw on a pair of sneakers. Say goodbye to basic and boring sweatshirts and leggings, and hello to a cute, but still comfortable, daytime look.
Look #2: Night Out
Make it easy by dressing in the same fabric!
If you love the bronze metallic fabric on the Bianca cardigan, you’re in luck! We also have a tank top (Milena) and pants (Christine) in the same fabric! To make your night out outfit stress-free, go for a monochrome look. Start with the CAxLZ Milena tank in bronze metallic and add on top the Bianca cardigan. To complete the look (and create the perfect waistline), add a thick or skinny belt. A tip from LZ: try an obi sash!
Look #3: Wrap Dress
Transform Bianca into a wrap dress!
Sounds crazy right? But, it’s really not! The CAxLZ Bianca cardigan is knee length making it the perfect silhouette to turn into a dress. All it takes is the addition of a brooch to pin it shut and you’re ready to go! Plus, the fabric is lightweight enough to get a cool breeze on a warm day, but not lightweight enough to be see through!
Look #4: Bathing Suit Cover-Up
Summer days are for the beach!
Get ready for Summer by taking the CAxLZ Bianca cardigan and transforming it into a beach coverup! Throw Bianca over your bathing suit and step onto the sand feeling cute and confident. Fashion and functionality at its finest. This look is chic and feminine and ready for those hot Summer days!
