If you haven’t already been outside, it’s cold! We know it’s too freezing to don those shearling booties with the open toes, so the next best thing is to cover up top – stylishly.
They’ve been around for years, perhaps lurking in the back of your grandma’s closet, but knits are back, and in a big way. Pair a chunky knit sweater or cardigan with high waisted pants and you have a super slimming look, as long as your pants aren’t the same width as the sweater. Wear a chunky knit with a flared skirt, woolen tights and a blazer and you have a preppy, yet on trend, style for the weekend.
From Prada to Chanel, chunky knits were the look du jour. They’re comfortable, super warm and encapsulate a weekend-in-front-of-a-roaring-fire feel, so what’s not to love? Just pop on a fedora for the perfect finishing touch.
Here are 5 covetable knits to buy this winter – because there’s more than enough winter left to wear them!
1. Rag and Bone Greville Sweater, $163 (on sale now!)
For a sweater that can be worn as a dress, this Rag and Bone choice is perfect. It’s long enough to wear in Autumn with sheer opaques and great to throw over some thicker tights in winter, with stripes adding a great alternative to a solid color.
2. Clare Tough, $1555
For a super luxe, feminine take on the chunky knit, this pastel pink Clare Tough cropped cardigan will take you from work to an evening out.
3. Topshop Cable Knit Sweater, $76
This cream sweater is the perfect addition to any wardrobe. It can be worn plain with jeans, dressed up with a scarf, under a faux fur vest or with a cute skirt.
4. Zara Short Handmade Sweater, $29.99 (sale)
For a cropped knit with a chunky style that works perfectly with high cropped trousers or high waisted flared skirt, this affordable Zara knit is a great choice.
5. Paul and Joe Knit Cardigan, $340
For a different take on the knit sweater, try a cardigan! You can belt it over jeans, belt it over a dress or wear it open and casual with flat boots and a fedora hat.
