We asked: Would you wear Chunky, Textured Knits?
You said: Yes to Chunky, Textured Knits, with a 75-25 split in votes.
Style tip? Chunky, textured knits add visual and actual volume, which means that they’re not the most figure flattering fabric. But what they lack in flattery, they make up for in style. These chunky knits look great layered, especially in a monochromatic color scheme, which, in neutral colors, is completely on point (not to mention uber-sophisticated) for Fall. When layering, try mixing weights (e.g. chunky with thin) and textures (e.g. rough with smooth). Last style tip? A slim pant or skirt works well with these more voluminous sweaters.
Next question: Denim on denim is a tricky style statement to pull off. You don’t want to look too matchy-matchy, but then again, there’s no better time than now to try out the look. With this season’s focus on denim, you have a wide variety of weights, textures, and colors of denim to choose from. But what do you think? Tell us, would you wear denim on denim?
