With Winter right around the corner, we are seeing this amazingly soft material popping up in sweaters, cardigans, scarves, socks and so much more. I am always looking for more pieces in this fabric to add to my wardrobe. This fabric is so warm, smooth and has the perfect amount of shine. These pieces are made of yarns called chenille, which is a type novelty yarns. They are super soft and cozy, but they aren’t the most durable. So, clothing in this luxurious feeling fabric is great for statement pieces for the fall and winter.
I love that these pieces always have such a beautiful luster to them and they are so soft. They can be worn as oversized sweaters like this one with a pair of distressed denim jeans and your favorite pair of thigh high boots or a simple pair of booties. One of my favorite parts about these sweaters is that they are so comfortable, but they always look cute with little to no effort in putting the outfit together. These sweaters also look great with a pair of leggings and some sneakers, or even with some layering with a jeans jacket, flannels, scarves, and all kinds of warm clothing for this winter. This look could even be dressed up every once in a while, with a pair of leather leggings and a pair of over the knee boots for a night out with the girls or even on a date! I am obsessing over these sweaters!
Here is another way I am seeing this lovely fabric, cardigans are always one of my favorite ways to layer in the fall and winter. This cardigan is in this beautiful slate gray/purplish color. I have it paired with a black turtle neck, a pair of distressed jeans, and a pair of black booties. This is such a chic look with once again, no effort. I love this color of this cardigan as well as the length of it. The length makes it perfect for layering over a simple dress for a fancier day or even with a pair of leggings and a graphic t-shirt. I love the way these cardigans can be casual or dressy with just a simple change. These pieces are so versatile, definitely a must have for this winter! This is also a beautiful piece for the holidays due to the rich colors and gorgeous shine, while still being extremely soft and warm!
Here is another adorable sweater that I am obsessed with for casual and comfy days. This piece has the lace up detail on the neckline which gives it some personality compared to the usual chenille sweaters. I wanted to spice this outfit up a little bit, so I paired it with a groovy pair of flare jeans and some simple black booties. This sweater would also look really great with a pair of leggings or a regular pair of skinny jeans. Once again, you can tell how versatile these sweaters are. You can throw them on any day and with just about anything. This sweater is also a beautiful light pink color which is so in this fall and winter. We have a lot of light pink and mauve color in stores and online at Sugar Loves Spice!
Lastly, I want to show you how I dressed up this chenille cardigan with a simple t-shirt dress, some fuzzy socks and little black booties. This look was so easy and fun for the fall. Even though fall is almost over, this can work for the winter too with maybe some tights, over the knee boots, a scarf and a coat or jacket! Not to mention, this look is super comfortable and so easy to just throw on for a lazy day!
So, I hope you guys are now as obsessed with this chenille fabric as I am. These pieces are great staples to have in your closet! Come in stores to shop with us or shop online at Sugar Loves Spice! We hope to see you soon!!!
