The name "chunky knitted sweater" is so fun and at the same time a bit misleading. The thick sweater looks chunky but doesn't make you look chunky if you design it properly. In my opinion, the right ways either means wearing a short or a lean fit. One of the best things I love about chunky knit sweaters is that they can make you look adorable and fragile, in a good way that makes people just want to hug you and protect you. In this blog post I will share with you some of the best chunky sweater outfit ideas I have collected. Let's check them out now.
Creamy chunky cable knit sweater with black Corduroy pants
I start the list with a causal and beautiful way to wear a chunky sweater. Easily wear a creamy thin cable shirt with black corduroy pants. Wear elegant flip flops to complete this outfit.
Green chunky knit sweater with skinny jeans
For a causal street look, wear a green chunky knit sweater over a large white tee for the top. Pair these items with skinny jeans and light pink heels.
Turtleneck Chunky sweater with cuffed jeans
Don't be afraid to wear a shirt that is really chunky. When you exaggerate it so much, people get that you do it on purpose and it becomes a unique style. For example, wear a really thick turtleneck-knit sweater with cuffed jeans and low top shoes.
White chunky knitted sweater with printed mini skirt
Here is an outfit that demonstrates a nice laying trick. You can add a touch of elegance when you make a knit sweater over a button up shirt and let the shirt collar and sleeves top a little. As an example, layer a white chunky knit sweater over a blue shirt. Wearing the white printed mini dress makes the outfit look so beautiful. If you can't get a skirt like this you can also wear a denim skirt and still look good. Black ankle boots would be the perfect shoes to pair with the outfit.
Gray chunky sweater with high neck and black leather pants
Here's another trick of layers you can use. Wear a gray chunky high-neck sweater over a white blouse and let the lower end of the blouse top off a bit. Complete outfit with style by wearing black leather pants and ankle boots.
Red oversized knitted sweater with black pencil skirt
For an outfit with intense color contrast, wear a pink oversized knitted sweater with a black pencil skirt. A typical way to complete the costume would be to wear black ballet flats. A more creative way to do that would be to wear cheetah ballet flats as shown in the picture.
Chunky Knitted sweater Cardigan with jeans
Let's jump to a little variation of the knit sweater, which is the chunky knit sweater cardigan. There is a lot of style in the gray cardigan already, you can pair it with some simple, low profile pieces like a long sleeve gray t-shirt, gray skinny jeans and nude heels.
Creamy chunky sweater with red leggings
This is a rare outfit idea involving the red leggings. It is definitely not an easy task to design the red leggings but this outfit does a good job. Wear a creamy big chunky sweater over the top of a white shirt. The sweater should be big enough for it to be almost a sweater dress. Wear red leggings and black ankle boots to pair with the sweater.
Cream Chunky Knitted Sweater with Ripped Jeans
As a stylish and casual street outfit, wear a creamy, knit sweater with ripped skinny jeans. Match the shirt with ballet flats that have the exact color.
White Turtleneck Chunky sweater with denim jacket
Simple white sweaters look beautiful and clean. I will finish this list without mentioning this pure gem. To get this beautiful look, wear a white chunky knit sweater with black skinny jeans and ankle boots. As a last magic touch, you drape a denim jacket over your shoulders. By the way, you might be interested in checking out our blog post on how to look good to pull a jacket over your shoulders.
Gray oversized sweater with black leather skirt
As mentioned in the beginning, to look good with a chunky knit sweater, you wear either a skinny fit or something short. The outfit idea belongs to the latter. Simply wear a black leather mini skirt with a gray chunky knit sweater. For the shoes I have two recommendations: black ankle boots or gray thigh high boots.
Partly tucked in chunky sweater
It is not impossible to make the legs look long when wearing a chunky sweater. You can simply split and randomly take in your chunky sweater in the skinny jeans shown in the photo.
White chunky sweater Cardigan with Leggings & Sneakers
A casual and sporty way to wear a white chunky sweater cardigan is to wear it with a white t-shirt, black leggings and low top converse. These simple pieces just seem to blend into each other perfectly. I definitely think this outfit is good enough for casual get-togethers.
Cream oversized sweater with cargo pants
Jeans and skirts are just natural fits with the chunky sweater. But if you want to try something different, I suggest you try the cargo pants as an alternative. Just make sure the cargo pants are slim pants or that you can really look clumsy.
Pink chunky marled knitted sweater
Here is a knit sweater that has a less common color. It's a pink marbled knit sweater. Simply pair it with white skinny jeans and brown boots with high suede.
The only takeaway from this blog post that I want you to remember is to either wear a skirt or skinny jeans or pants with a chunky knit sweater. Something loose like the wide leg trousers can easily make you look clumsy when you pair them with a chunky sweater.
