STYLING CHUNKY KNITS

A big chunky oversized knit is something we all cherish throughout the cold winter months but it can be one of those things that is sometimes a struggle to style. Admittedly while we do feel warm and cosy, a lot of us feel, well, frumpy. So we have rounded up some of the easiest and by far the best ways to elevate your chunky knit into something a little more stylish and put together. knits1 AN OVERSIZED SCARF Now while this seems like an odd choice because surely adding an oversized scarf would only add to the 'frumpy-ness' factor of your outfit, however if styled with some skinny jeans like the girls pictured you can easily see the slimness on bottom balances out the outfit as a whole. Overall giving you an effortlessly cool casual outfit, (plus it is an extra layer, adding even more warmth and cosiness so ultimately a win-win!) knits2 A LEATHER SKIRT For ultimate style points try styling your oversized knit with a leather skirt, it is super easy and overall looks very put together. Now I can imagine if you're wearing your oversized knit in the first place it is quite cold outside, so feel free to add tights (even if the girls pictured didn't - they must have been freezzinnggg!!), don't worry the outfit will look just as good with or without. knits3 OVER THE KNEE BOOTS An oversized jumper dress is something we regularly see styled with over the knee boots in the blogosphere and for good reason! It is a very simple easy way to be super cosy and comfortable whilst still looking fashionable. knits4 FAUX FUR Adding some form of faux fur into your outfit instantly gives you a more polished look, whether you choose to do this in the form of a faux fur stole, a vest or even a bag, it is guaranteed to take your outfit from frumpy to fabulous. knits5 LOTS OF JEWELLERY As is the case with most outfits (a chunky knit being no exception) adding some jewellery can really make all the difference. Whether you wish to add a bolder statement necklace or instead stack more delicate pieces together, it adds that extra something that makes your outfit look more considered and less like you've just flung on you're comfiest jumper (even though that's exactly what you have done). So hopefully next time you pull out your chunky knit (probably tomorrow, considering the current weather situation in the UK) you can use one of these styling tips to give the impression you put a lot more effort in than you actually did to look super stylish whilst still being super cosy!
