Chenille is the ultimate cozy, winter material. I can’t get enough of it! While I have a few chenille sweaters of varying styles I’ve never owned a chenille dress. I’ve been seeing them crop up here and there this winter season and while I would’ve loved to find a classic, long sleeve, chenille sweater dress that I really liked (for both design and price point) this season I did find one a fun one.
This blue chenille dress has an off-the-shoulder cut. You don’t have to pull it off the shoulder or order a size up to make it more slouchy. It is intentionally cut on an angle at the neckline to automatically give the one-shoulder/off-the-shoulder look.
The sleeves balloon out slightly. I’m not sure if these are considered bishop sleeves or not. I’m still working on figuring out the difference – if there is a real difference.

This sweater dress kept me really warm despite the off-the-shoulder-ness of it. It’s got decent thickness and weight and the only downside to it was that it gave me static shock when I was taking it off.
I paired it with dark grey tights and black slouchy boots to go out to dinner Saturday night.
This week is supposed to be a lot more mild and warmer than last week. The temps in the 40s compared to the real feel temperatures of -12 last week will make this week feel like a heat wave! So I won’t be wearing as many thick sweaters or chenille this week, but let’s be real I’m up for cozy materials all year long no matter the temperature!
