What I Wore

Wearing Chunky Knits

image

While a chunky knit sweater is warm and perfect for chilly days and nights they aren’t super flattering. Just think of the name, chunky knits. The effect of wearing one can make you look…chunky. Don’t toss all your knits yet, you can still keep warm and minimize the volume.

slim bottoms

Offset the voluminous look with a tapered bottom. Straight skirts work really great with chunky knits. You can create a sleek silhouette. You can go through the entire gamut of slim bottoms and can’t go wrong…skinny  jeans, pencil skirts, a-line skirt, leather straight pants or cropped pantaloons. There are oodles of fab styling possibilities.

cropped knits

Wear a cropped knit sweater with high waist pants. Accentuating your waist is the key to a slim silhouette. It’s important to not get lost in the knit. You can also wear a long shirt underneath that peeks out from underneath like a peplum. This gives the same effect.

get leggy

I’ve publicly condemned wearing leggings as pants. However, wearing them with a long chunky knit tunic is acceptable. Your knit acts as a dress while the leggings are similar to wearing tights. This is a perfect relaxed weekend ensemble. You are ready for any activity in this cute combo.

    I m really into the sweaters that have knitted design accents. With the right colors, I would wear them all year.
