Funky Chunky Knits

As the weather gets colder it is time to whip out those sweaters and scarves. Take advantage of the colder weather to bring out the best of fall! One of our favorite trends to keep you warm is chunky knits. Knits are everywhere and also easily accessible to every shopper out there. But fair warning, if you aren’t mindful of how to wear the trend, you will end up looking like a grandma.

Our first tip for your sweaters is to keep it simple. Stay away from elaborate patterns and embellishments. But you can funk it up with the kind of knit, the chunkier the better.

The next problem arises when it comes to matching the knits with the rest of your attire. If you want to be edgy pair your knits with a fun flowery skirt or shorts and tights.

Or, you can keep the look simple with a basic shift dress and wedges. But the easiest way to wear the trend is to pair it with leggings or skinny jeans with your favorite pair of fall boots to complete the look and make it winter weather ready. Stick to slim and form fitting bottoms to balance out your sweater.

The easiest way to have fun with the trend in the cold weather is with your neck wear. Of course scarves are always a necessity in November and December, so have fun with it! Chunky knits are a must for scarves. Stick to long lengths that you can layer and wrap around.
