This street style trend is starting to show up everywhere, it’s the Rainbow Sweater!
Gucci’s cashmere ribbed rainbow sweater is a recurrent presence on my Instagram and Pinterest feed. The multicolored stripes remind me of my childhood sweaters and I do appreciate that 90’s nostalgia moment in street style. For this reason I’ve been on the hunt for a fast fashion version of this baby and surprisingly it hasn’t been easy.
The Fall Winter 2016 Gucci knitwear collection is one of those staples of any street style star right now. There’s a lot of choice, you can find striped sweater with tigers, with union jacks, with butterflies and bees. Any animal you can think of. Since I already have a tiger sweater (you can check it here) I’ve been really loving this colorful print. It’s a casual happy sweater. “Happy” really is one of the best words to describe it and “happy” is also how I felt when I discovered a great rainbow sweater from Gap.
Gap really nailed it, although I would really love for the colors to be more lively this sweater is a great happy improvement to my winter closet. I read this article and I’m still hopeful that a Zara version will show up in mid January but meanwhile I’m having fun with my baby.
