Chenille: A Fabric I'm So Happy To See Return Again!

 Trends come and go.  Some trends we hope to never see again, and others we don't want to give up.  Chenille sweaters were one of those trends for me.  I love the look and feel of chenille.  It's so soft, cozy, and warm.  When it was really "in" I purchased every chenille blanket I could find and put one in every room of the house.  I owned several chenille sweaters as well.  But, like all good things, chenille eventually came to an end.  So my chenille blankets were switched out to fleece or fur, and my sweaters back to normal yarns.  But now, chenille is back!  And I for one am loving the return of this beautiful yarn!


 You've probably been seeing these gorgeous gold cardigans everywhere in Blog Land.  I was SO excited when I was walking through my local JCPenney and spotted this Arizona Long Sleeve Chenille Cardigan in the Junior Department.  It was a steal for $24.99!


Is this color gorgeous or what?  JCP calls it Ochre Gold but most bloggers refer to it as Marigold.


 I just love the length and the iridescent quality to the yarn.  And yes, it's as soft and warm as it looks!

I wore a old sleeveless black tank underneath the sweater, skinny jeans, black booties, and I carried a burgundy bag.


My new tortoise shell bracelet I picked up on clearance for around $3.00 at JCP went perfectly with my new gold chenille sweater.


I also wore a black/rust scarf as it was cold this day.


Underneath the scarf I wore a three strand stone and old necklace in case I got cold and removed the scarf.  But it was so cold, I never did.


Here is the look without the scarf.  I think it looks much better with the scarf, don't you?


I wore a high heeled bootie by Liz Claiborne (old).


It's important to note that these type of sweaters can make you look heavy and frumpy.  I find it's best to keep what I wear underneath body skimming, and to also add a shoe with a bit of a heel.


Here are some other cute chenille cardigans I found on Pinterest. 

I love this color-block one.

There were quite a few marigold sweaters on Pinterest just like mine (I told you it was popular).  Here are some other ways to style it:

With a dress:

With a all-black base and blanket scarf:

Isn't this pink chenille cardigan so pretty?

Here's another marigold sweater worn with a cute white camisole and short blue skirt:

And finally here is a olive green one worn with skinny jeans and black booties.  I think the hat and choker are the perfect added touch!

So what about you?  Are you as happy as I am to see this fabric back again?  I'd love to hear from you!

Have a Great Day! Amy
