As soon as the temperature drops below my comfortable 60 degrees, I always reach for my reliable chunky knit sweater— the perfect combination of cozy and chic. But all to often do I see the tragic leggings, tank top and sweater combo. While it might be an easy piece, why not spice it up a little bit? You’d be surprised how many ways you can wear a chunky knit without looking like you just rolled out of an all night study session. Oversized and chunky sweaters walked down the runway at Stella McCartney. They were paired with a trendy skirt—a look so easy to copy out of your own wardrobe!
I love how we see the chunky sweater used in this Fashionista’s look. An oversized chunky sweater is a great way to play down an outfit. This cobalt dress is an amazing and bold color, and the beige sweater is a great way to tone down the outfit during the day. Pairing this outfit with a similar toned bootie is consistent and the perfect everyday look!
The nice thing about this look is that almost every college student owns a chunky sweater. Whether it’s a pullover or a cardigan, it’s a staple piece in our wardrobe. The oversized chunky knit is a piece that has stood the test of time over trends, and it’s so easy to incorporate into today’s trend. They are a finishing touch to a pair of distressed jeans and chunky jeweled necklace, or a way to dial it down with a leather mini skirt. For a bohemian vibe look pair your sweater with a printer maxi skirt and leather boots or over a LBD and knee-high boots for a mod inspired look. Sometimes chunky sweaters seem like old hat to us, but by sprucing up this piece for this season trends, the oversized sweaters become a whole new exciting piece in our wardrobe!
