When the crisp fall weather comes out to play, so do my extra chunky knit sweaters. Trouble is, the bulkier the sweater, the harder it can be to style. If you have a capsule wardrobe or are working towards a more curated closet like me, finding multiple outfit ideas for a difficult-to-style piece can be an even trickier challenge. That’s why I’m sharing how to style a chunky knit sweater for fall in 3 different ways. Read this blog post for some stylish ideas to keep your fall wardrobe fresh all season long!

1) Wear For A Coffee Run:

Keep things cozy and casual for everyday wear by throwing on your favorite chunky knit sweater with a pair of leggings. To heighten the look a bit, opt for a pair of elevated joggers like this drawstring denim pair for a streetwear-inspired outfit. Top it all off with a pair of sneakers and a baseball cap when you’re headed out, and you’re set!

2) Wear To The Pumpkin Patch:

Maybe I’m basic, but I am all about the fall activities! Apple picking followed by cider and donuts, visiting the pumpkin patch…I am so there! When you’re getting out to enjoy the changing seasons, go for comfort and durability by pairing your sweater with a classic pair of jeans. Add an easygoing attitude to your look by opting for a destructed pair like this one. Then, polish it all off with the styling: slightly tucking in the sweater in the front waistband leaving it draped out in the back (aka, the French Tuck), and cuffing the hem of your denim to show off a pair of ankle booties. Take the outfit even further with either an equally chunky scarf or layered necklaces and a cozy beanie on top!

3) Wear For A Night Out:

Have some fun with your fall wardrobe by mixing a slim or mini skirt with a chunky knit sweater for a fall night out. Keep things warm by layering heavier fabrics, like this wool skirt, with tights and tall boots. Top it off with a leather jacket and statement earrings for an updated version on a timeless autumn ‘fit!
