Chunky knits are here to stay. From shetland and fairisle varieties to boyfriend and grandpa cardigans, a big knit stitch is the mark of cool, casual autumn/winter dressing. Of course, if you’ve adopted this trend or are thinking about it, you’ve got to consider your styling. How to pull off chunky knits without affecting their namesake? How to stay chic?
It’s simple, really. Pair these cozy, ultra warm sweaters with your skinny jeans and bodycon bottoms. I love the idea of donning opaque tights, a simple cotton stretch pencil skirt, maybe a pair of OTK boots and then topping it off with a chunky sweater. Chill on the top, sexy on the bottom, it’s the perfect “I care, but not too much” type of look. For the days when heels and tights aren’t really your thing, the big sweater in your closet will be ideal to wear with faded skinnies and sneaks. A perfect combination for afternoon flea market perusing or meeting a friend for tea.
