Chunky Knits

As fall approaches my part of the world (or rather, merely hints at it…the week is still in the 80’sF in my part of Texas) I can’t help but get excited for my favorite season of all. Fall entices me with its promise of layers (and thus, creativity), outerwear (I have a penchant for coats and jackets of all types), and above all: amazing textures. Right now I’m in loooove with chunky cable knit sweaters. This season it’s all about the asymmetric, off-shoulder look. Your chunky knit sweater should be neutral-toned (which means it goes with everything!), slightly loose-fitting, but fitted in only some areas (like the cuffs of the sleeves, or the hem).

Are you going to invest in some sweaters this fall/winter?

    I'm slowly making friends with chunky sweaters again… I love the comfort but I had to wear them to high school in the mid-nineties as an awkward and still growing teenager (my family was on a tight tight budget and I was wearing my mom's old clothes – which I still do, only now it's by choice), so I'm a bit traumatized with respect to oversized sweaters… :)

    I wish there were a way to combine chunky sweaters and chunky women, so that they were slim and flattering! If that makes any sense….

    Mostly I'm just crying because I want to wear #3 and it'd be SO unflattering on me!
