meninaelegante 's Thoughts:

Ahhh. The leaves are changing, the sky is graying over, and lets face it – its getting pretty cold, cold enough that its time to crack out our long lost friend: the chunky knit. As many different trends come in and out of style, let’s face it, a large knit sweater is always a classic staple that can keep us warm from the autumn wind when hot chocolate, mittens, and everything else fails (Though that doesn’t mean we should stop with the hot chocolate. ;) ). This year, 5 chictopians show us a classic take on this ever recurring trend, showing us a simple, stream-lined way to wear our sweaters.

Title Photo: rahpunen
It’s no wonder rahpunen is a style icon; she shows us all the right combinations when it comes to a gorgeous look. She is rocking another trend from this year – capes – and keeps the whole outfit pulled together with neutral colors and with a slightly country feel. Her knit cape really is the center of attention, with slight details in the neckline and on the sleeves to add some diversity to the outfit. You’ve got to love her style.

Photo One: chichichicjb
chichichicjb shows us she is the master of color, making a gorgeous light yellow knit sweater the center of her outfit. She keeps the yellow from being overwhelming by pairing the jumper with black studded pumps and a knit hat in the same color. To contrast the chunkiness of the sweater, chichichicjb wears skinny khaki pants, adding definition to her body. Great sweater, Great outfit!

Photo Two: cityofbugs
We go from a play with color to a play with texture. 3-D bows on cityofbugs sweater are really the highlight of the picture, as she keeps the rest of the outfit in a slew of grays and blacks. cityofbugs knows how to keep the chunky knit feminine, having it paired with a short pencil skirt, adorable fringe booties (I love them!), and a delicate locket. If warm and girly is what your looking for, then you found it in chitofbugs’s outfit!

Photo Three: starryeyed-
Here is a completely different look then before, yet the chunky knit stays front and center. starryeyed uses a thick gray sweater to pull together several elements of her outfit, like the striped sweater and the bright red purse. Her specific jumper is detailed, from the billowy sleeves to the slight cowl-neck, and is classic with a bold pattern through out. We love the look, starryeyed , so stay gorgeous!

Photo Four: colormenana
If you looked for the epitome of the classic chunky knit, you would find colormenana in her amazing beige sweater. She keeps the look simplistic, opting out of color but instead being bountiful in texture and interest. The rips in the sweater add an edgy element to the look, a contrast against the streamlined black cargo pants (yes, you heard right, black cargo pants!) upon black leather booties. She adds a little “bling” to her look with a diamond cross and the silver chain from her purse. colormenana’s title as a style icon? Well deserved. Very well deserved.
