Stylish Mamas Keeping It Real: The Perfect Cardigan

Fashion designer Aline Dazogbo has lived all over the world, but it was San Francisco that inspired her Perfect Cardigan. A day might start out sunny, but by quitting time, evening fog often rolls in. It played havoc with Aline’s hair. Thus, she launched a Kickstarter campaign and created a statement piece that converts from a cardigan with a subtle hood to a shawl or wrap. Long sleeves can be scrunched or rolled back, or used to cover chilly fingers. Aline has two shops—Aline’s Closet in the Haight, and Voila in Noe Valley. $290.
