Chunky Knits I’m Loving for A/W 17/18

Anybody else absolutely loving snuggling up in chunky knits in front of the tele with a cuppa on these chilly, wintry nights?

If you live in England, you’ll know that we’ve been experiencing freezing temperatures of late following on from the extreme snowy and icy weather coming from the US.

Now, I know chunky knitted jumpers are always in fashion for the Autumn/Winter season (mainly because they’re practical in the cold) but I’m absolutely loving this year’s selection. There seems to be one set rule: the cosier, the better!

Here are some chunky knits I’m loving for A/W 17/18.

Bold Hues

If you haven’t already heard, rainbow brights are going to be a huge trend for Spring/Summer 2018. So, that’s why it’s a great idea to start building up next season’s wardrobe and investing in fashion-forward pieces now whilst a lot of lines are reduced in the good ol’ January sales.

From sunshine yellow to pillar-box red, vivacity is key! Simply dress down loud and proud knits with jeans and trainers for casual affairs, or dress up with a Clueless-style check skirt and black knee-high boots for dressier occasions. Either way, don’t be afraid to stand out with chunky knits in bold hues this season. They sure do brighten up a dreary, wintry day.

I’m loving the below orangey-red cable knit beauty from River Island that I bought in the sale for £20 from ASOS (similar here). The high-neck keeps me looking cute and feeling cosy when the weather outside is cold and miserable. #Winning

Pretty Pastels

Gorgeous and feminine, pastel-hued knits are a treat for the eyes during the winter season.

Pastels are not only on trend for A/W 17/18, but they show no signs of going out of style for S/S 18 thanks to designers such as Victoria Beckham and Celine.

With pink being one of the key colours of the moment, I spotted that River Island cardigan on one of my fave influencers and simply had to grab it whilst I could. As well as being super snugly, it’s so easy to throw on, especially when you’re in rush to get to Tesco at 8.45pm on a freezing cold Friday and it closes at 9pm.

I’ve never been so in love with a cardigan – and I guarantee that it’ll be a love affair that lasts a helluva long time.

Sports Luxe

A key trend for A/W 17/18, sports luxe has featured in abundance across the January sales jumpers and cardigans category. From oversized structures to striped motifs, it’s cool to create a look that resembles Sporty Spice this season.

Not exactly a chunky knit, but still pretty freakin’ cute, I adore the below white sweater dress with sports stripe from In The Style. They might be sold out of the white jumper dress for now, but they still have the black equivalent, as well as the white t-shirt version. Go, ladies, go!

Simply team your sports luxe jumper with over-the-knee boots and giant hoop earrings for a night out with the gals, or throw on over leggings and faux fur boots with a long-line blazer for smart casual chic.

Me? I prefer to wear mine with some specs and a scrunchie on the average day. #Perfection
