Top 5 Chunky Sweaters: Lay It On Thick

Marc Jacobs, Etoile Isabel Marant, Chloé, Mary Katrantzou, Dagar, Sweater, Wool Chunky Sweater

When it comes to sweaters this season, the chunkier and the softer, the better. The weather cannot get cold fast enough for me, which where I live is basically never. The first day of “fall” brought 100º sultriness in Dallas (not to mention endless ragweed pollen because Mother Nature actually thinks it’s spring). Thankfully, I have many trips planned to cities enjoying cold weather.

Trust I’ll arrive with a suitcase filled with cozy knits. Don’t fear a chunky sweater will make you look chunky – it’s all about proportion play. I love the silhouette of a weighty pullover worn with ultra-skinny jeans. Try our DL1961 x Bag Snob collab for a super-streamlined fit (excuse the shameless plug) or pair one with a skintight, knee-length leather skirt and high booties, for great juxtaposition. All available on Net-a-Porter.

1. Dagmar Liv Merino Wool-Blend Sweater ($300): Stripes get an inspiring – not to mention quirky – reinterpretation with some in a super-touchable, brushed texture.

2. Marc Jacobs Hand-Crocheted Wool-Blend Sweater ($2,300): Key-lime chartreuse is a fabulously unique color, which gets even better in a tile-knit accented knit with metallic silver weave.

3. Étoile Isabel Marant Gladys Mohair and Wool-Blend Sweater ($420): Get a jump on ski-lodge chic with this classic bit of coziness, perfectly cropped and accented with alpaca for modern spice.

4. Chloé Cable-Knit Wool-Blend Sweater ($1,560): An inviting turtleneck looks literally delicious in a pastel blend of mint, icy blue, and sweet pink.

5. Mary Katrantzou Tik Tok Metallic Knitted Sweater ($1,985): Naturally, my favorite is sold out at the moment, so let’s just pray they get more of this brilliantly detailed gem (with a mix of cashmere, mohair, silk, and more) in stock, pronto.
