So, with the Ground Hog and I both predicting an early exit to winter (at least locally), I’m trying to get all of my final winter obsessions in before it’s too late. I’ve had animal intarsia sweaters on my list since last fall but for some reason never quite got around to actually picking one up .
(And for those of you who may not know exactly what intarsia means: it is a knitting method used to knit a pattern using a number of colors together)
Anyway, a recent J. Crew sale reminded me of my obsession again with this trend. I was hopeful I would be able to pick up a couple as part of the sale. But of course, they were completely sold out! Ughh… but no worries, I was able to find them on eBay! Woo-hoo!
Now, although the animal motif trend has been extremely huge this season, I personally only like the ones that are more on the fun and whimsical side. But there are lots to choose from. And there are lots of styling options for this look too. Skinny jeans are an obvious choice but also consider pairing with a skinny printed trouser or a printed pencil skirt. In fact, my next styling goal for this trend will be with a floral pencil skirt that I thrifted recently.
What do you think of animal intarsia sweaters?
