Cozy Autumn Knits


It’s officially sweater season. I keep collecting sweaters that all have a very similar theme, slightly oversized, chunky, and super cozy. There is something very comforting about snuggling up with a chunky sweater, and when the weather starts cooling down it’s time to get the most out of snuggling up.

Personally, I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with chunky knits, I love them because they feel good to wear, but often, with my figure find that it’s way too easy to go down the frumpy lane. Often times what I’ll do to battle the frump, is to mix it up with different textures and layers. Here I’m wearing a Massimo Dutti sweater gifted from the US site launch. The texture of the knit and the relaxed fit which could work well for the weekends, or dressed up with an edgier pair of leather pants. Here I’ve gone with a more casual look with an army jacket, suede skirt, knit tights and my trusty pair of booties. Mixing the textures gives the outfit a bit more character, and even if it does lean towards the more cozy side.

    Love this look on you, Jennine. The layering looks chic and urban yet very warm at the same time, and I totally get where you’re coming from with the frumpy chunky knit dilemma. It’s the main reason I tend to steer clear of chunky knits even though I love how they look on others.

    Happy Monday!

    I am so looking forward to wearing my military green jacket but Florida’s weather won’t let me. Love the way you wear yours. Great mix with the rusty colored skirt.
