Chunky Cable Knits

Fashion, Luxury, Reality, Style

When my alarm is going off and I hear the winter wind whistling against my window, the last thing I want to do is get out of my warm, cozy bed and venture into the freezing cold. Rather than sleep in, try layering under warm, chunky cable knits.

BOY. BY BAND OF OUTSIDERS sweater / ERDEM pants / DKNY coat / MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA booties / PROENZA SCHOULER bag / COACH fur scarf

A simple white collared shirt would be perfect under this Boy. by Band of Outsiders sweater (and yes, tuck it in.) To add some trendy individuality (oxymoron?) you can attach collar tips like these ones from ASOS:

The modern feel they have works best with the outfit above, mainly because this look is a little bit more relaxed:

ROMWE sweater $80 / RIVER ISLAND jeans $55 / UNTOLD coat $76 / OASAP boots $63 / TOPSHOP bag $68 / WHITE HOUSE BLACK MARKET faux fur scarf $50

This sweater has much more of a lumberjack vibe, obviously made chic by the surrounding pieces. Nonetheless it would look foolish with a collared shirt layered underneath. It could also potentially make the outfit seem like it’s trying too hard to look good. This look is trendy enough with it’s mixed prints (floral and houndstooth,) yet still understated. Always a good combination.

Blue may be the hardest color to find in nature, but this season’s runways told a different story. The rich hue is a current favorite of fashionistas worldwide and is easy to work into your wardrobe. It’s more versatile than it appears, especially with the color blocking trend still going strong. Some of my favorite colors to pair it with are black, maroon or oxblood (another color of the season), deep, rich greens (think forest or even emerald if you’re feeling bold), mustard, and tan.
