How To Style Your Favorite Chunky Knit Sweater In A Feminine Way

Fall is in full swing, which means our favorite sweaters are finally part of the outfit rotation! While the temptation is to wear the same outfits all season, there are so many ways to switch up your favorite sweaters with a variety of different pants, skirts, or shoes.

The chunky knit sweater is an Evie girl staple due to its coziness, versatility, and ability to soften your features. It makes a great base for classroom and office appropriate outfits, and can also be glammed up for holiday events and parties. Whether apple picking or pumpkin carving is on your calendar this month, a chunky knit sweater is the perfect look for any fall occasion. 

A few tips when choosing and styling your sweaters: You can tuck the bottom of your sweater into your bra band to subtly crop a full-length sweater. When choosing a chunky knit sweater, you’ll want something a little oversized, but not a sweater that swallows your frame entirely. Start with neutral basics, as you’ll definitely get a lot of wear out of a cream, brown, or black sweater, and then slowly build your wardrobe to include other colors like sage green or burgundy around them. 

And if you feel like many of your outfits look the same, try adding different accessories, or switch up your hairstyle to add variety and a little something extra to your everyday outfits! Jewelry, a good hat, a new color of lipstick – these are all great ways to get out of a style rut. 

Depending on the weather, you can also layer a longer coat or puffer jacket over all of these looks, to keep you warm and cute during the colder seasons! There are so many ways to style a chunky sweater this season, so let’s get into it!

With a Silky Midi Skirt

Midi skirts are a favorite year round, but a satin or silk midi skirt is a perfect addition to any fall or winter outfit! Swap out your typical bodysuit or tee for a cozy knit sweater to switch up your look. You can front tuck your sweater into your skirt, or simply layer it over the skirt (belted or unbelted) for an effortless, LA-girl style. This is also an adorable holiday look if you add a pop of red, green, or gold! 

With Straight-Leg Denim

Straight-leg denim is here to stay. One of the easiest outfits, with a ton of variation, is to pair your chunky knit sweater with a flattering pair of jeans. You could wear dark wash, light wash, distressed, or black denim with your sweater. This look is great for colder days, and can easily transition from day to night with a change in accessories and good lipstick. 

With a Mini Skirt

In order to bring your mini skirts into the fall and winter seasons, add a pair of tights and your favorite chunky knit sweater. The oversized look of the sweater and the form-fitting skirt are the perfect combination for a balanced outfit. Add boots and an accessory, and you’re ready for the pumpkin patch. 

With Heels

Another adorable party look, which can also be office appropriate with a few changes, is wearing your favorite knit sweater with a cute pair of heels. Heels are instantly feminine, as they elongate your legs and add a subtle elegance to your overall appearance. Heels and a sweater also make a fun date night look, with romantic touches throughout the look. 

With Heeled Booties

Boots, especially with a little heel, look great with denim, skirts, and dresses. Add your favorite chunky knit sweater, especially in a neutral hue, and a pair of heeled booties for an effortless fall look. This is also a great opportunity to add some autumnal tones to your outfit, or stick with neutrals for a highly coordinated look!

With Knee High Boots

Knee high boots are a fun way to add length and coverage to your fall and winter looks, without sacrificing on style. These boots can also easily dress up your favorite chunky knit sweater! The key to creating a sleek and structured look is to balance out proportions, especially with such a tall boot. Wear these boots with a form-fitting mini skirt and chunky sweater for the perfect balance. 


With Leggings

Perfect for rainy days and movie nights, a good pair of leggings and an oversized chunky sweater is a great way to put together two closet staples. For a going-out look, swap your typical leggings for a leather pair, and slightly crop your sweater into your bra band. Add a cute pair of boots or sneakers depending on the occasion, or throw on a matching pair of fuzzy socks for an adorable look at home! 

With Sneakers

Dress down your chunky knit on casual days with a cute pair of sneakers! An adorable outfit for class or grabbing coffee at a local coffee shop, this look is the best of seasonal simplicity. A basic pair of white sneakers will work with any sweater color or outfit combo, but feel free to add some color to your sneakers as well.
