STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Chunky and Funky Sweaters

Style Advice of the Week

This cheery Fashionista was spotted on Thayer Street in Providence, grabbing a bite to eat and shopping with a friend on a warm winter day. From her adorable smile to her young and fun style, this chick knows how to spice up a grey Sunday! There is something so artsy-chic about anything with a bold graphic design and this Fashionista nailed the trend with a four letter word of “love” written vertically in black and neon pink. She paired this with a tunic, gray leggings, white kicks and a pink beanie—keeping it comfy, cute and casual.

What really caught my eye about her outfit was the creative way she layered the chunky sweater over a striped tunic, giving her body proportions and transitioning smoothly from top to bottom. I love anyone who dares to mix and match, especially if you can coordinate two different patters or textures. Her simple graphic-designed sweater and sailor-striped dress complement one another to a tee. The Fashionista knew how to keep the rest of her ensemble simple, with basic grey leggings, cute sneakers and a hat. Any other jewelry would have competed with the multiple patterns involved, but adding a cute beanie for style and warmth was the perfect finishing touch.

If all your sweaters are plain and you need to spice up your casual winter look, check out ModCloth for adorable sweaters, comfy leggings and striped tunics. Another fabulous place to look for leggings is TOBI, which has affordable prices and amazing colors. Make sure you take a risk. No matter if your leggings, tunic or pullover sweater have a trendy design, keep at least one piece solid. Take notes from this Fashionista that you can be bold with just one or two different patters layered together and keep the rest simple in order to look effortlessly cool!
