Think chunky jumpers with a super smooth finish and a hint at throwback fashion, and you have chenille knitwear. Favourites in the 80s - and then again in the 90s, but with slightly grungy undertones - these pieces are back to keep us warm in the chicest of ways. Chenille gives knitted designs an indulgent edge thanks to the subtle shimmer and wonderfully soft texture. Look for pops of colour and rich hues alongside moodier shades in this collection of chenille cardigans and jumpers, as well as contemporary cropped silhouettes to partner with high-waisted jeans.
With all the indulgence of velvet and the warmth of wool, these chenille cardigans and jumpers are easy to fall for. Keep an eye out for designs with textured ribbed and patterned knits for a touch of extra interest. These versatile styles can be worn as part of a low-key look or smartened up to create a sophisticated outfit. The fabric has long been a favourite for teaming with denim, but it can also be updated with a pair of printed trousers or a pleated midi skirt to achieve a feminine feel.
