This Cozy '90s Knit Is Back And Better Than Ever

Snuggle up in style.

With the influx of throwback fashion, it was only a matter of time until we saw '90s-style chenille popping back into our closets — especially with winter just around the corner. The sheen on this knit has the uncanny ability to look particularly luxe, especially in autumnal colors like burnt umber, burgundy, mustard, currant and gold. Oversized, extra-long sweaters and cardigans are especially tempting in chenille, as the softness of the fabric makes you want to wrap yourself up in as much of it as possible.

But if you were around for this knit in the Nirvana-era, you may also recall its legendary snagging capabilities. Be prepared this time by learning how to fixed a snagged thread. Start with the sweater inside out and, using a large blunt needle, pull the thread back through to the next stitch. Work the thread on either side until the weave is restored, then smooth the pulled area and seal it by steaming it. Remember not to cut a dangling yarn as it'll become a large, gaping hole that is less than ideal for warding off chilly winds — unless you're really going for that authentic grunge look.  

Layer a voluminous velveteen jumper over a crisp white button-down and suede slouch boots for a chic fall ensemble rich in texture. Let a deep burgundy cardigan be the wardrobe staple of your winter weekends, paired with a graphic t-shirt and dark denim. Mix in a soft cropped sweater with a long floral skirt and leather satchel to really work the working week, or drape a mauve design over your shoulders on ladies' night over with a sexy silk cami and capris

With so many ways to style chenille, it's no wonder this velvety fabric has made it back. Check out how the blogosphere are working theirs and scroll down to get your new staple sweater for the winter:
