This Sweater is Ridiculously Expensive, But Fashion Girls Are Obsessed

Dacy Knight

There's nothing like a good, reliable—yet fashion-forward—knit to really help you stand out. The fashion crowd always has their eyes set on particular picks, but this year it's already evident that a certain number has secured position as a favourite.

During fashion month we were treated to a generous catalogue of covetable sartorial offerings, both on and off the runway. When it came for dressing for the streets, one sweater seemed to capture our collective attention, as well as adoration. Reminiscent of a high school staple, this stylised piece was a loud and audacious take on outerwear and bold bands of red, white, and blue. Complete with cheerleader uniform stripes, pouf sleeves, and a bedazzled panther, this Gucci A/W 2016 number stole the show when it came to fashion month street style (and possibly all of sweater-dressing this season). 

When it first appeared on the Gucci runway last winter, the statement piece was paired with a voluminous mini skirt adorned in a vintage postcard print and topped off with glittery glasses. Not one to stand on the sidelines, the varsity sweater was revived on streets of fashion week with vertically striped A-line skirts, side-stripe flares, and leather pants that gave way to sky-high platforms. Every look was something worth cheering for as we root on the return of an American classic with just the right touch of calculated bombast the Italian fashion house has become known for.
