Get Familiar: The Chunky Look

leave a comment »

I know you probably looked at this like, “Oh hell naw, he’s talkin about love handles and muffin top.” Au contraire mon Frere. I’m talkin about the look you neeeeeed to GET FAMILIAR with before you get left behind (like the kid in 6th grade with the mustache).

Fall/Winter is upon us. Time to ante up on Chunky Knits: you know, those huge crocheted or woven sweaters, turtlenecks, cardigans, etc. Although you might look like a kitten’s wet dream, you’ll A) be warm as all hell, B) look fly as hell, and C) create a very pronounced silhouette (namely the big up top, narrow below). This works for women (adding volume, making your legs look like long stem roses — cowl necks are a go) and for men (turtlenecks — making you look “cuddly” — which is what every guy wants in the cold seasons…don’t front). Chunky accessories go hard too! Scarves and hats are probably a good look.
