5 Ways to Style a Chunky Knit Sweater

The chunky knit sweater is everybody’s favorite fall fashion staple. Paired up or down, it’s accessible to everyone and is a must-have for your colder weather wardrobe. Today, I’m sharing how to style the beloved chunky knit sweater in five different ways. A little something for everyone!

1. Dress it down. Way down. Sweats have made a huge comeback onto the fashion scene this season, which is something I can definitely get behind! The most comfortable pants are all of a sudden considered fashionable and chic? Well, OK then. I’ll take it! Literally roll out of bed and keep the pants and throw on your big knit sweater and some tennis shoes and boom: You’re socially acceptable. Not to mention the most comfortable you could possibly be. Gotta love it.

2. With some leather. Because everything is better when paired with leather. Who doesn’t want to feel like a total badass? Pro tip: Leather is the easiest way to make that happen. I’m loving a thick knit sweater with a cute structured leather skirt and some chunky heels. The best part of this look is that you can take it from the office to happy hour! Always a plus.

3. Winter whites. To hell with the saying, “Don’t wear white after Labor Day.” That is so passé. Now, it’s all about breaking the old stuffy fashion rules, and embracing any look you want. Wear a loose knit sweater over a super feminine white dress and some flirty heels. Effortlessly chic.

4. Jeans and a sweater. Jeans and anything is always a good idea, if you ask me. They send off a more casual vibe that is great for an easygoing and subtle weekend look. If you’re feeling like making a statement, pair with some killer heels and a bright handbag. And make sure to remember proportions: the slouchier the sweater, the skinnier the jeans.

5. Oversized cardigan. I love a good oversized knit, and when it’s a cardigan you can literally throw it over anything. An elegant dress and some heels, a pair of distressed jeans and a tee with sneakers, anything goes with a cardigan. This is the perfect lazy girl’s way to stay cozy in the cold weather.

How are you going to style your chunky knits this season?
