As a follow up to our triumphant declaration that, yes, the dainty little sweater sets your mom loved in the '90s are back, we invite you to finally cozy up yourself. Before you shop from our roundup of 10 ultra-cute matchy picks, here's a bit of historical context: The funny thing is that your beloved grandma was likely a fan, too. Consisting of a cardigan and a matching tank or short-sleeved top, the twin set first appeared in the '20s care of Coco Chanel and her rival, fellow couturier Elsa Schiaparelli.
Still, it only became silver screen-certified in 1937, when Lana Turner headlined the flick They Won't Forget in a scandalous, figure-skimming knit. Gasp. Then followed the rest of the notoriously curve-flauntin' so-called Sweater Girls (count bombshell actresses Jayne Mansfield and Jane Russell among their number).
Absorbed all that? Good. Now, get shopping!
