Shots + Thoughts | Chunky Knits

Shots + Thoughts | Chunky Knits

 

To me, Autumn/Winter months are pretty much synonymous with cosiness; whether you’re most excited for gingerbread lattes (basic but irresistible), sporting the ultimate fluffy slippers and fluffy socks combo 24/7, or snuggling up under the million-tog duvet with a book about how to be more hygge.

 

This post is the first in an ongoing series I’m starting out called Shots + Thoughts, where I show you how I style various pieces and talk you through how I go about the styling process. You’ll find links to check out each item below and I’ll include similar items where possible!

 

I recently asked on my Twitter and Instagram which pieces you’d be most interested in seeing me style during the colder months, and coming out on top was the chunky knit, so I opted for a MANGO knit I recently picked up that I’ve been getting so much wear out of.

When it comes to oversized pieces, I find that I feel most comfortable pairing them with ‘lighter’ pieces, whether that’s in colour (neutral tones, whites), texture (finer materials to add a refined edge to an otherwise slumped silhouette) or shape (slim-fit, straight-leg or tapered trousers (or leggings) to balance out an otherwise lack of shape).

 

One thing I adore about chunky knits is that, whilst you can pair them with equally as chunky footwear for a slimmed-leg, they look just as put together and balanced-out, as such, with lighter footwear (Old Skool Vans, loafers).

    I love the look of chunky knits but always feel a bit lost in them when wearing them. I love the way you’ve styled your one.

Feel free to leave a comment - I'd love to hear your thoughts!
