I recently discovered a fun wrap, or more like a Cardigan on the Go! from a company called Pocket Poppet. From boardroom to beach, work to weekend, retro to metro, The Pocket Poppets’ adaptable design is great for women who are looking for comfort, style and a compact easy-to-carry cardigan on the road.
The Pocket Poppet is a fashionable open drape front cardigan that is created to fold into its own attached convenient and protective pouch. Street chic details such as ruched sleeves, jewel tone colors, and a curve-enhancing cut have been created in tandem with a small credit card /ID/lip gloss/cell phone pocket on the inside. Some ‘Cardigan on the Go!’ owners apparently report loving the concealed pouch to stash their small essentials when traveling , such as their boarding pass and ID while waiting in line at security!
Cleverly concealed by the Poppets’ graceful pleating and sophisticated silhouette, the lightweight pouch falls in the small of the back for complete discretion while on the body. When you no longer wish to wear your Pocket Poppet, it easily folds away and “pops” back into its pouch for effortlessly easy storage in a purse, stroller, or suitcase, protecting it from the unwelcome wear and tear, spills, or various other “oops” moments that are so prevalent in modern women’s lives!
Created to transition effortlessly from dressy affairs to casual outings, its easily accessible when you need it most — air-conditioned restaurants, airplanes, offices, cruise ships, shopping malls, or theaters.
Made from an ultra soft, high quality rayon with a touch of spandex for easier crease release , the “Classic” Poppet functions a semi-structured jacket in many types of clothing wardrobes, especially professional or dressy ensembles. The “Classic” Poppet, is available in seven fun colors: Black Noir, Au Naturel, Sapphire Blue, Red Wine, Rich Plum, Heathered Grey and Heathered Dark Chocolate.
Imagined as an upscale weekend or workout layer, the “Lotus” Poppet is made from a moisture-wicking Bamboo/Rayon/Cotton/Spandex blend in a weight and style that falls gracefully to the hip without adding bulk or volume. Bamboo clothing naturally has wonderful wicking properties and is partially antimicrobial, two features that are fantastic for both humid climates and swift changes in temperature.
All Poppets currently come with black water- repellent pockets except ‘Au Naturel’ which comes with a white water- repellent pocket. The box pleats on the back of the ‘‘Classic’ Poppet and gently gathered seam on the back of the ‘Lotus Poppet,’ just above the natural waist level, cleverly conceal the Rip stop fabric pouch inside.
Below, the hue of the Red Wine Pocket Poppet can be described as somewhere between cranberry and a nice glass of Pinot Noir.
The pouch falls in the small of the back and cannot be detected while wearing the Poppet. When you no longer need to wear it your Pocket Poppet it easily folds away and “pops” back into its pouch. My favorite? The purple of course.
