The new season might not be far away, but it still feels like winter to us. Our fave chunky knits are still firmly in play… although at this point, we need some styling inspo to keep us going till brighter days.
Luckily we’ve got plenty of fashion forward folks on hand to offer their advice on how to wear a chunky knit – take a look at these creative ways to keep your woollies looking fresh.
This cable stitch camel number is our current jumper of choice.
How to wear
Chunky knits are generally oversized, so change the silhouette by adding a belt. A slim style works better, but you could go classic in tan or mix it up with a hint of leopard print.
Add interest to your knitwear by layering it over a floaty blouse. Look for something long and loose with a collar, like this striped style. We also love this printed pussybow piece for adding detail and texture. Remember to wear the bow over the top!
Mix the seasons
Throwing a chunky knit over your favourite spring dress is a great way to mix up your seasonal wear and get more use out of fair weather pieces. This sheer floral dress will look great peeking out from under a jumper, teamed with tights and boots for colder days.
The art of the casual tuck is serious business. Team your chunky knit with some high-waisted jeans and then start practising – try tucking the front of your jumper into the waistband and leaving the back loose for a ‘just threw this on’ look, or tuck in all the way round then pull out slightly for a laidback 60s style.
