10 Chunky Sweaters For Fall Because It's The One Item You Need For Cold Weather Survival
One of the perks of the cold weather (yes, there are some aside from fall foliage) is that it's perfectly acceptable to practically live in a snuggie, aka in chunky sweaters for fall and winter. Since everybody can pretty much agree on the misery of a cold day, nobody even looks twice when you've left your house in your dad's largest cable knit sweater from the '80s. It's not only acceptable—it's encouraged.
But styled correctly, a chunky sweater can make all the stylish difference. There's nothing chicer than a white turtleneck and long duster coat, especially paired with a midi skirt and some pretty killer booties. That's how you do fall/winter style. Just as cool of a look is a big knit and vest—whether that be a long structured one, a distressed denim one, or a badass leather vest.
The point is, the best type of style is one that looks like you've casually thrown it on, you know, with no effort. Like you're just naturally chic, like the French. And the easiest way to pull that off is through a luxe sweater in a rich color. Why not take advantage of killing two birds with one stone: looking achingly good while fighting off the harsh weather?
