Chenille Sweater


Sweater: Forever 21 | Skirt: Forever 21 | Shoes: Coach (old, similar here) | Bag: Chanel (old, similar here) | Sunglasses: Kate Spade | Lips: Lust by MAC

Some sweaters are scratchy and itchy, but chenille sweaters are extremely comfortable. This black chenille sweater from Forever 21 is already a favorite in my closet for a few reasons. It’s oversized without being too boxy, it’s the perfect length and the material has a super soft texture. Trust me when I say it’s like wearing a blanket! You can pair this sweater with dresses or skirts, distressed jeans or leggings and change the entire look of it for any occasion.  It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of clothing that can be worn multiple ways and I’d call this a win for sure.  It’s perfect for running errands, shopping or a date night.

This cozy sweater is still available at Forever 21 for $19.90 and comes in 2 colors. If you want other options, I have linked to other chenille sweater favorites at all price points below.

Happy shopping!

    I love this sweater paired with the plaid skirt! And you’re right. The last thing I want to be wearing is an itchy fabric of any kind! And what a deal you scored on it! 🙂

    Your jumper looks so cozy! I’m in love with your skirt. I wish I could wear it but it’s a bit short for me these days x

      Thank you so much Claire! When I wore this outfit I forgot to bring my jacket and I was worried that it may have been a “bad” decision but surprisingly the boots and sweater were enough to keep me nice and toasty. Happy weekend!

    I love camel and black! Add plaid and that is a lovely combination. Your boots are cute, and look like you could walk all day inthem!

      Isn’t it a wonderful color combo? Camel is such a nice neutral and my boots didn’t require breaking in. It was comfortable out of the box! Happy Sunday Jess. I hope you are having a fantastic weekend.

      Thank you so much Shelbee! I was actually not sure if I was going to be able to pull off the mini skirt look. I am glad I went outside my comfort zone and tried because I couldn’t be happier with this entire outfit and how it turned out. Hope you are having a lovely weekend!

    I need to get a chenille top, I don’t have one anymore. So pretty with that plaid skirt and those boots! Your hair looks so pretty here!


    • Maureen | 14th Jan 18

      There are so many chenille options out there and if you are unsure whether you would love the material or not, I would definitely try this one. If you aren’t a fan of turtlenecks though, F21 has other cute options and at a very affordable price point. Happy Sunday Carrie!
