Mini-me Monday :: Chunky Knits and AE 30% Off Clearance

Chunky knits are very much in Vogue this winter season. I can think of very few things more cozy than a large knit sweater in winter months, and this year the style choices are many.
With winter in full force, I do want to stay warm and cozy while still maintaining a stylish look. My favorite winter go-to piece is a cozy chunky sweater cardigan because not only does it keep me warm it's also ultra stylish. The chunky knit sweater is made to have a loose and relaxed fit therefore you need to keep the rest of your body in proportion. This is where slimming bottoms become the top choice.
You can determine the warmth of knits by the closeness of the weave. Therefore I would suggest a tighter weave sweater to keep the little ones warm and toasty.
This has been my weekend staple outfit: a sumptuously over-sized chunky-knit cardigan, skinny pants and tall boots. Chunky cardigans are a perfect option for balancing out skinny jeans/pants. And whether you prefer the more classic or contemporary look there's a variety of colour, design and shape of these sweater knits to choose from. Every woman needs a chunky knit in her weekend wardrobe as a stylish alternative to a winter coat.
