4 Ways to Wear a Chunky Knit Cardigan

It's finally fall! There's nothing cozier to wear this season than a chunky cardigan that is easy to throw over most any outfit. It's like wearing a big knit blanket around town - What's not to love? Here, I'll show you 4 ways that I have styled this type of cardigan so far.

I'll leave a link to this style cardigan below. This specific cream color is currently sold out, but other colors are available. Keep your eye open for a restock because Target is usually pretty good about that. This cardigan is a seasonal staple of theirs!


The first (and easiest) way for me to style this cardigan is with my all time favorite pair of mom jeans and a white tee. It's such a classic and effortless look that will never go out of style.

This cardigan is easy to style for a girls night out. In order to dress it up, I threw it on with an all black outfit (black skinny pants and a black halter bodysuit) and heels. The cardigan makes the all black outfit a bit more casual, so you can wear this anywhere!

Next, I LOVE styling this cardigan with my favorite graphic tee, leggings, and sneakers for a comfortable and sporty look. It seriously feels like I'm wearing pajamas, but looks SO cute. When choosing a graphic tee, I personally prefer location/city focused tees rather than a graphic tee with a band name or a quote. I just feel like they look a little more timeless and grown up.

Last is another look styled with jeans. The dark, skinny jeans make the outfit appear a little more polished. I paired them with heeled Chelsea boots, a coordinating belt, and a white tee. I love wearing this shopping or to lunch with friends.

I hope these looks inspire you to try new ways to style your chunky cardigans for fall! Again, this exact color is sold out, but I am leaving a link for this cardigan available in other colors (the taupe looks very versatile as well!)


Happy styling!
