Cozy Up In Chenille This Fall
You’ll live in cozy sweaters this season, and considering chenille is on-trend for fall 2017, there’s really no reason to wear any other fabric. Forget wool sweaters that can be itchy! Make way for butter-y soft and smooth wares in your wardrobe this season.
In case you're unfamiliar, chenille is a type of yarn that has a velvet-y texture. The word "chenille" means caterpillar in French, so as you can imagine, the yarn is oh-so fuzzy and soft, like its namesake.
Shop chenille cardigans, cable knits, turtlenecks and more to make sure every warm item in your wardrobe now comes with this ultra soft feeling.
Retailers such as Zara, Urban Outfitters and Forever 21 are carrying long-sleeved chenille items — so you know they’re in. It’s going to be hard to resist a purchase when your favorite stores are carrying them, so go on and give in. We promise you — you won’t regret being all wrapped up in something this incredibly soft.
The more chenille, the better. So, let’s get to shopping, shall we?
