Temperatures have already taken a nosedive which has us running for our warmest shearling coat. Of course, a cozy sweater is the next logical step when the weather is not cooperating. And when it comes to knitwear, we are suckers for a good chunky knit for a couple of fairly obvious reasons—it keeps us comfy and warm, and it’s incredibly stylish.
While it may seem like an oversized knit is more of a statement piece that you can only pair with a limited number of garments, we beg to differ. Take it from us: chunky sweaters are the gifts that keep on giving. They are a wardrobe multitasker and totally worth the investment.
Here we rounded up the styles we are adding to our closet this fall and we intend to wear each one of them regularly.
