Eight Chunky Sweaters and Where to Find Them in Dallas

We’re back, baby.

I pay for a weather app called Dark Sky, which I justify for several reasons. The first is that it has way more features than the iPhone’s generic Weather app, including precipitation probability and something called dew point. It’s also cool looking, a valid reason to pay for anything.

One of my favorite Dark Sky features, though, is “Time Machine,” which allows you to see weather details from any date as far back as the 1940s. (There was light rain in the morning and a high of 79 degrees on this day in 1947, apparently.)

But I don’t need to go back that far. All I have to check in on is the last five years or so to know that the time period for which Dallas was forced to endure a 90-degree fall isn’t just unreasonable, it’s unusual. My man Pete Delkus even confirmed it.

In conclusion, my extreme fervor for sweater weather is extremely justified (just like Dark Sky!), and to fuel my passion, I’ve compiled this list of excellent local shops showcasing the chunky sweater trend (extra points for pairing it with a flowy skirt). It’s a mood of sorts, really. A mood board you can shop.

A chunky sweatshirt, designed by local brand Field Rations and worn by local baking sisters (who just launched very fun macaron merch in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month), is just as important as a chunky sweater.

Note: this shop is online-only, but it’s co-founder, Jen Coleman, is Dallas-based, which does lead to the occasional brick-and-mortar pop-up.
