Big Chunky Sweaters are have gotten the chop this fall. They’re shorter and more fitted than ever before, and it’s really quite a welcome change! Here’s one I just bought.
I love a chunky oversized sweater that’s long, big, soft and roomy, but some days I feel like wearing something a little sportier and fitted. When I came across this Pointelle cropped chunky sweater, I felt I was getting the best of both worlds.
This cute sweater is chunky and cozy. It’s semi-thick ( but not bulky), with a marled look and beautiful Pointelle stitching. Since it is slightly cropped, it hits just above the hips for a figure-flattering look.
The rule of thumb is you never want a top to end at the widest part of your body. For me, that’s my hips, so I’m best with a top that ends just below or just above my hips. This sweater ends just above, without being too short.
Of course, with a top like this, you also want to wear a higher waisted pair of jeans, so you don’t see your tummy hanging out when you move. That’s no problem for me because I always wear high rise. It helps hold everything in after having had three children! ( Lol!)
Look at this stitching and the gorgeous colors. You know I’m picky about my colors ( and you should be too). The mix of gray, black, and mustard gold is so unique, and perfect for my golden coloring!
And boy, is this sweater comfy! It’s spun from a blended wool yarn with a touch of cashmere, so it feels soft and luxurious.
It’s also semi-fitted, which makes it feel and look good. The way it nips in is beautiful. Some sweaters are so boxy. Do you see the chunky gold resin earrings in this photo? A chunky sweater, chunky earrings to keep things balanced… and the mustard gold color works so perfectly with the mustard gold thread in my sweater!
How do you like the accessories? Brown is so rich worn with these colors, and I think the brown bag with black jeans is very modern. Also, you can’t go wrong with leopard flats, which are so trendy right now!
I live a casual, low-key lifestyle. I’m at home most of the time, running out to the grocery store or appointments. My hubby, Dr. D, and I like to go out to restaurants, the theatre, and movies, so this is the kind of upscale, everyday look I like.
