fuzzy sweaters are back

thank you katy perry.

by steff yotka

The return of the '90s fuzzy sweater is nigh, and you have Katy Perry to thank for it. In the promotional images for her latest album, Prism, dropping today, Perry wears the coziest mustard yellow sweater that is giving us dreams of Lizzie McGuire, old Delia's catalogues, and Courtney Love raging on stage with Hole. All excellent inspirations to get from a sweater, right?

Whether you're a grunge girl or are just trying to stay toasty on cold days, an eyelash sweater (that's the, ahem, technical term for the soft fabric you came to know and love in the '90s) can find a place in your wardrobe because styles available today range from cropped printed sweaters to oversized knit dresses. If you're willing to dish out a little more dough, angora blend options will make you feel like a bougie Liv Tyler in Empire Records, or you can always grab a rainbow knit one that is literally called a "Furby" sweater. 

We can guarantee that you'll find a a sweater to love in our roundup, and if you don't believe us, you should at least believe Spongebob
