Haute Fashion: Get Chunky, In a Good Way.
December 13, 2010 2 Comments
Oh the weather outside is frightful, but these knits are so delightful. This season, get chunky, but not in your waistline of course! Chunky knits are not only fashionable this winter, but they are warm & cozy too. Whether your about to curl up by the fireside with a gingerbread latte or battling mother nature’s bitter chill, these knits are the perfect item to have in your closet.
A common concern that may come to mind in regards to chunky knits is that they tend to hide your curves, loosing your figure underneath all that material. Not to worry, this season’s styles may be loose fitting, but should always be paired with a fitted bottom. Leggings and skinny jeans are ideal for these looks to elongate your legs and balance the proportions of your silhouette. Loose fitted bottoms may give the illusion that you may of made one too many trips to the buffet line during the holidays.
Overall, these sweaters are the perfect combination of sexy and warm. They are also so versatile and comfy looking, makes me want to snuggle up in one right now. Here are a few of my favorite chunky knits for this winter.
