There she was, all sad a lonely balled up underneath a display at Zara – the chunky knit sweater of my dreams. In Zara’s defense, it was December 27th and Boxing Day shoppers were still out in full force, circling the store’s sale items like vultures (me included).

The sweater was the perfect shade of winter white, super soft and perfectly oversize. At $39.90, it was a steal and I was happy to rescue it.

I had been after a great fisherman sweater forever now! Perfect for chilly temperatures, their oversized, cozy look is really on trend. Personally, I have been living in mine and wearing it with everything.

Remarkably easy to wear, the chunky knit sweater is “all the things” – cozy, relaxed, chic and even a little sexy if you style it up the right way. No need to feel stumped on how to wear one. Up your chunky knit sweater game with some of my fave styling tips…

Chunky knit sweaters look great with a loose tuck, meaning simply tuck in the front and let the rest flow loosely. I love this particular styling trick with skinnies, cropped jeans and even wool pants like I chose to wear in these shots.

Your fave knits look particularly effortless paired with a flowy skirt…extra points for choosing a feminine floral or pleated pick!

Got Overalls?

A super cute look is your fave chunky sweater underneath comfy overalls. This look is best with overalls that are a looser fit…not too loose! Easy on the farmer chic!

I love the look of a chunky knit with track pants! Level up that athleisure look by adding softness with an oversized knit sweater. I couldn’t think of a more effortlessly chic look.

Pro tip: keep your track pants on the more fitted side for a clean look.

Stay warm (and chic), kids!
