Do you have a chunky knit sweater or two in your closet? They are a great choice for a cold winter day when you want comfort and style.
These sweaters are so comfy and cozy and are the perfect piece for winter warmth. Although this sweater conjures up a cozy setting in front of the fireplace –with jeans and Ugg slippers!– it’s also a great centerpiece for an outfit. And while a warm knit sweater outfit can be as simple as jeans and sneakers, it can also include a long skirt or slacks for the workplace.
Most of these sweaters are neutrals like ivory and tan, but you can see colored versions breaking out as well.
For today’s post, I’m styling it simply–cause that’s how I roll most days. How about you?
The Chunky Knit Sweater Outfit
Fabrics for chunky knit sweaters include cotton, wool, rayon, acrylic and so on. If you’re like me, I’m pretty picky about the fabrics against my skin. Wool is a problem for me, so I generally look for sweaters with cotton and man-made fabrics. Like this sweater by Lou and Grey.
You can find items from Lou and Grey at Loft and other stores or go directly to their website. They specialize in soft everyday clothing items. I have a few of their things, and love them! I especially like the raglan-style sleeves and the shirttail hem that’s just a little longer in the back.
This oatmeal color is lovely paired with denim, so I am styling my favorite jeans with the sweater. The jeans are a traditional medium-to-dark shade with a high waist (really helpful for that pesky roll around the middle!) and a bit of stretch. I styled a black version of these jeans in my post, Go Wild in a Pink Snake Print Shirt. While they are a bit pricey, they are well worth the cost and will get lots of wear.
A pair of neutral boots or booties is the perfect shoe to accompany a sweater outfit. This shade of “oak” is a nice shade as it goes with everything.
You can wear almost any scarf with a neutral sweater. For this outfit, I went with a black floral to tie in with my cognac-handled handbag.
Paige Jeans for Men
There are also Paige jeans for men of all ages, made with the same softness and a great fit. They come in a number of colors. I finally convinced my husband to spend the higher price for a pair of these quality jeans. He now has three pairs in different colors! A little Valentine’s gift maybe?
You can see how easy it is to put together a perfect winter outfit. Just choose a cute chunky knit sweater, a colorful scarf, a pair of booties and your favorite jeans and you are styling for winter!
Thanks for stopping by today, dear readers! Have a warm and cozy weekend.
