How to Style Your Chunky Sweaters for Fall

Chunky sweaters are practically stylish during the colder months of the year. Originated from Ireland and meant to be worn by actual fishermen when they were out to sea, traditional fisherman sweaters or chunky knits are woven from thick, durable wool, and are as timeless as they are warm. Admittedly, anything with the word “chunky” in the name is a bit intimidating. So, make your style cozy and chic this fall with our styling tricks.

Team your chunky sweater with a sexy bottom and tall boots.

Ladies who are fuller on top may tend to gravitate towards your tried-and-true sweater styles. However, as long as you are meticulous with proportions, chunky sweaters can work for you. Looking for sneaky ways to look sexy without getting a chill? Embrace your favorite shorts and miniskirts that will go perfectly with tall boots and sweater. This way, you’ll be able to show some skin without looking inappropriate on colder months.

Go effortlessly chic with skinny jeans and classic pumps.

Since your chunky sweater has a billowy structure, you might want to balance it with a pair of form-fitting bottom like a pair of skinny jeans. Like fashion blogger Annabelle Fleur, simply team your chunky top with chic pair of skinny jeans and a nude pair of pumps.

Add some edge to your style with leather and architectural skirts.

Look preppy chic by teaming your chunky sweater with chic feminine skirts.

Whether you’re looking for ways to add some whimsy vibe to your fall outfits, or simply wish to make everything look feminine, you could never go wrong with skirts. You just need to highlight your waistline so it won’t look like your waist is as wide as your hips. If you’re wearing a boxy top, balance it with a pencil or form-fitting skirt, though wearing a belt with your sweater and tulle skirt can be great to balance your proportions.

Channel the urban vibe by teaming your sweater with leather trousers or camo pants.

If you’re living in a big city and looking for some edgy statement, go for leather trousers. Like fashion blogger Annabelle Fleur, simply elongate your leg line by going for a pair of boots that matches the color of your trousers. Or like fashion blogger Blair Eadie, go for a pair of ankle boots that matches the color of your camouflage print to create a cohesive look.

Add some cozy vibe to your party looks with a chic sweater.

Indeed, chunky sweaters can look chic, so it’s time to don them on your street style to keep your looks fall-inspired.
