2017 has truly been the year people have partied – from runway to street wear- like it was 1999. In the resurgence of all things Nirvana, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and will-they-won’t-they-Ross-and-Rachel, I believe to my bones the most wearable trend has been chenille.
The squishiest of knitted things, it’s the hug of a fabric that you’ll want to curl up in with a glass of wine at the end of a day, or throw on with jeans to #brunch, or over slacks to the office. I would gladly wear any of my personal chenille sweaters for any of these functions. It’s the least “trendy” of the 90’s trends, in my humble opinion, in the very best way.
Like, if you want to be kind of hip-happenin, but you feel like a choker + tattered mom jeans topped with a scrunchie might get a little side-eye from grandma at dinner next weekend, think chenille. Cozy, polished, trendy perfection.
If you’ve followed my fashion opinions for any length of time, you know versatility is the name of the wardrobing game in my book. And this fabric is just doing it for me this year.
(That scowl? Probably checking the scores to see my chances at a $700 cash fantasy football pool slipping away. Oh the highs and lows of sports.)
The featured boyfriend cardi is a Nordstrock Rack, Blan Noir clearance steal.
Honorable mention for your shopping pleasure: I own this baby from Loft (duh) in coal grey, and it wears like a fluffy, fitted cloud. Recommended. And 50% off today, 12/18.
