If I had the option, I think I would cloak myself in chunky knits every day for the rest of my life. Other than a fleece onesie, what else is going to feel like an eternal warm hug? Chunky knits, that's what. There's just something so dressed down and darn right comfortable about a thick knit, cozy as all heck sweater. It could be a chunky cardigan, a plain ole scoopneck sweater, or my favorite, a chunky knit turtleneck or mock neck. Heck, go a little crazy and rock a chunky cable knit sweater dress with your favorite pair of tights (that will, inevitably, tear after a few wears because lord knows tights, while necessary in the cold, are just little gifts from Satan meant to keep us buying more and more) and a pair of your favorite fall or winter boots. Boom. Instant hug in an outfit.
This is a more casual styling of a chunky knit. I took my cable knit varsity sweater from American Eagle that I got absolutely ages ago that I've been pulling out as much as possible. I layered a thin turtleneck from Target underneath just for some extra warmth. I paired this double-sweater combo the pair of Levi's jeans that I distressed and chopped apart myself. On me feet are my Chanel dupes from our favorite fast fashion store Zara (you can still get them here if you want to get in on the fun!).
As for a more "dressed" up but still casual look, I took my chunky knitted and slightly cropped sweater from H&M over my cognac double button skirt from Wandering Wardrobe. It's too chunky to tuck in, but the cropped nature of the sweater paired perfectly with the fitted waist of the skirt! On the bottom, I kept it simple with a pair of Bandolino riding boots that I've had for ages. They my favorite. They've definitely been through the ringer, but I don't think I'll be able to part with them until they truly break on me.
