AN INTERESTING TWIST ON THE CLASSIC CHUNKY KNIT

Friday, 16 December 2016











I know, I know, could I BE anymore windswept? (kudos if you picked up that Joey from Friend's tone) We must have been shooting on the windiest day ever, my hair went absolutely crazy! Just wait until you see the outtakes, there's some real gems (yes, I'm doing outtakes, they're hilarious - so stay tuned!)

So let's chat all about the chunky knit. I've already warbled on all about my love of knitwear in this outfit post, but seeing as they're such a staple in my wardrobe, it can't hurt to have another little chat about them now.

Whilst I absolutely love autumn and autumn fashion, I get very lazy when it gets to winter. I'm really not very good with the cold, so I end up practically living in my massive pink fluffy onesie, which has me looking like an "overgrown easter bunny" (my Dad's words, not mine - though let's just keep that between you and I), cup of tea in hand, whilst watching teen dramas and trashy sitcoms on netflix. Ahh, I may hate the cold, but I certainly love my winter relaxation routine! Any time I do decide to venture out of the house, the only thing I'm concerned with is having an entirely fuss free, warm outfit.

See, when you live in a place like the UK, you're bound to live in some variation of the knitwear and skinny jean combo for at least 5 months of the year, and this can easily get boring and feel a little monotonous, especially if you like to have fun with your outfits.

How, then, do we combat this? Well, it's all about picking pieces with little unique twists that will keep your outfits interesting, especially on those extremely cold winter days when you would love to just roll out with a duvet wrapped around you if it were socially acceptable.

So, let's chat about the knit I'm wearing in this outfit. It's from Dezzal, and it immediately caught my eye on account of the detail around the neckline which I can only describe as a sort of 'flap'. This, combined with the oversized turtleneck adds that little something to the chunky knit that I think just makes it that bit more interesting. Well, that's my view, anyway, my Father, on the other hand, commented that it looked "bloody silly", to which I (mentally) retorted that it was a good thing us girls don't dress for the approval of men (I mean, I didn't want to be chastised for being cheeky lol!)

The best thing about this jumper though? It's so so warm. It's that perfect chunkiness that makes it feel substantial and not flimsy, without being heavy. 

For more elements of 'interest' I added these fishnet socks, which, to my annoyance, ripped on the third wear due to my clumsy heavy handedness. Yep, there were a bunch of photos that couldn't make the cut because you could spy a large portion of backfoot hanging out lol! Anyway, I digress, adding a detail like this allows you to nail one of this season's biggest trends, (which I chat all about here), and for only £3, you can't really go wrong!

What do you think of this outfit? How do you keep your wardrobe interesting in the winter months? Leave me your comments below!

P.s. I just wanted to say a big thank you to all of you who read and commented on my last blog post! I received so many lovely, insightful, thoughtful comments for you ladies, which I thoroughly enjoyed reading and replying to, and it was also my most viewed post yet! I was rather nervous uploading a more personal, opinion-led post, but I now feel so encouraged to write other think pieces on topics that interest me. So thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to read it - you've put a huge smile on my face! (If you didn't catch it, you can read it here!)

Until next time, 
Bisous <3
