This girl loves her chunky sweaters. Fashion doesn’t have to be uncomfortable, tight and constricting! The cozy chunky knits are proof of that. I tend to shy away from them [or at least wearing them in public], though because I don’t like to add bulk to my already wide shape. But I definitely think the fall runway shows gave me some great ideas for how to pull off the look this fall.
Theyskens’ Theory. With an A-line skirt – A-lines are awesome because they cinch in your middle and their fullness make your legs look small. So a great way to balance the thickness of the sweater!
DKNY. With skinny pants and pointy toe shoes – the skinny pants are obvious, but the pointy toe shoes make you legs look even longer and thinner than they are so it’s a great combination!
Marc Jacobs. With a pencil skirt!
Chanel. Belted, tucked into a skirt. Brilliant!
Here are some of my favorite picks from retailers!
Topshop again. Great transitional piece!
If you’re like me and want to incorporate chunky sweaters into your wardrobe without adding bulk to your bod, avoid wearing them with loose or baggy pants or flowy skirts. Stick to form fitting bottoms or A-line skirts. Leggings work really well with them, so just pair with ankle booties or smoking loafers!
I have used these faux leather leggings in a lot of sets lately. I love them. I should probably just buy them.
I need this entire outfit. Especially that Madewell skirt 🙂
Definitely a favorite fall trend here! Now if only the weather would cooperate so I can wear chunky sweaters without dying of heat stroke 🙂
Happy Labor Day weekend!
