Notice anything from the looks above? Pulling off the chunky knit trend entails creating a balance with proportions and to keep things interesting, create an interplay of textures. Pairing a chunky knit sweater, whether oversized, turtleneck, or cowl neck, with tailored pieces and/or with sleek pieces like leather skirts and high-waisted sleek denim equal instant sartorial success. Elevating chunky knits and modernizing them will be important in pulling off this trend.
