Omiru Poll Result: Chunky Knits are In!

We asked: Are Chunky Knits In or Out?

You said:  In, hands down, with 77% of the vote.

Omiru’s take: Last year was all about thin, drapey knits–great for early Fall, but not so wonderful for Winter.  But with this season’s emphasis on textured, chunky knits, we can stay warm all Winter.

Style tip?  Chunky knits are a great way to add texture to a daytime outfit–but they also add bulk.  If you’re curvy, you’d be better off wearing finer knits as sweaters–but you can jump on the chunky knit bandwagon with a chunky knit scarf or cap. 

Next question: The color Orange shone all over the Spring 2008 runways of Fashion Week.  But
what do you think?  Tell us, is Orange In,
or is it Out? Cast your
vote on the sidebar!

    I’m crossing my fingers that we have a long, cold winter here in Florida – but not counting on it. Those chunky knits are so fun. I especially love all the wonderful collars out there.

    Orange, huh? I generally can’t do it near my face, but I’d love to get some orange accessories. Maybe this means that this spring we’ll finally have plenty of colorful choices.

    Crossing your fingers for a long, cold winter? I thought I read that wrong the first time! Well, if there were anything that would make me long for cold, it would be chunky knits. The detailing on these knits can be so intricate, and the texture they bring to an outfit is simply stunning.

    As for orange, sometimes it is easier to wear it via accessories. But consider a blood orange–a mix of red and orange. It’s less bright than traditional orange, and it has a sophisticated autumn feel to it.

    I live in England and fashion here is very important, so i brought a chunky scarf but I can’t really tell what goes with it, like I’m thinking my denim skinny leg jeans and a white vest top but i don’t really have a clue and I’m quite fashion concious so I want it too look right.
    Can someone help me please?
