Here in Ottawa fall is still in fine form, but there's no doubt that the chill in the air means winter in coming (said in Ned Stark's Game of Thrones voice). So as the temperatures drop, it's time to dig a little deeper in our closets and pull out those heavy knit sweaters to stay warm.
This week I'll be showing three ways to wear chunky knits without looking chunky yourself. Some girls prefer to stay away from heavier knit fabrics in fear that extra bulk equals extra weight, but why should the best pieces of fall fashion only be reserved for the skinnie minnies? Come back on tomorrow and Thursday to see more tips for wearing chunky knits, but right now let's start off with outfit number one.
1. Put a belt on it
Use a belt to show off your waistline and create shape underneath a knit sweater. Here's an example of an office-friendly outfit for those who work in a business-casual type of environment. Substitute bootcut black jeans for trousers if you need to step it up a notch.

Join me tomorrow where I'll be sharing another outfit showing how to wear chunky knits (without looking chunky yourself).
