I have a thing for waffles, and no, I’m not talking about the eating kind like you see above. Sorry. I’m actually talking about waffles that you wear. Yes, wear…as in…waffle sweaters!
Like the food they are named after, waffle sweaters evoke a sense of yummy and delicious comfort. They are soft and airy and perfect for an extended stay in bed on Sunday morning or an afternoon stroll in early spring.
My particular favorite right now is this one from The Gap:
I tried it on a couple of weeks ago, and it was oh-so-cozy. To my surprise, I even fell in love with this “neon orange” color, which I normally shy away from. So, if you’re just as waffle-happy as I am, here are three other options at different price points that you might want to consider:

Forever 21 ~ $17.80 Madewell ~ $69.50 (on sale!) Saks ~$179 (on sale!)
As you can see, waffle sweaters go great with both jeans and leggings. They can also be layered really easily with a silky tank, cotton tee, or even a more formal button-up. Personally, I plan on pairing my new, orange sweater with a “fluid” white tank, jeans, and my new Minnetonka moccasins. Comfort trumps all folks.
