Fall/Winter 2010 Fashion Trend: Chunky Knits

Another trend that was prominent on the AW2010 fashion runways were chunky knits, which primarily appeared in the form of oversized cardigans, but also popped up in the form of sweater dresses, vests, and pullovers (Above: Stella McCartney, Loewe, Dolce & Gabbana, 3.1 Phillip Lim). Regardless of the form, the key to this trend is choosing an item with a thick knit whether it is boucle, cabled, or heathered. Personally, I love a chunky knit and I can't wait to pair mine with a short dress and tights or with a pair of skinny jeans. They are a great transitional piece to bring you from summer to autumn and will keep you warm as the nights get cooler in the C-bus without having to break out a coat! If you are interested in picking up a chunky knit this fall, below are some fun options to consider: BDG "Fisherman" cardigan for $68 on; Belted yarn sweater cardigan for $24.80 on; Short-sleeve cozy cable cardigan for $98 on; Dex batwing sweater for $114 on; Urban Renewal "Grandpa Cosby" sweater cardigan for $48 on; Sanctuary "Grandpa" sweater for $152 on; Shawl-collar sweater coat for $148 on; Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent "Felicity" sweater for $398 on; Kensie tweeded knit cardigan for $88 on; Marled shawl-collar cardigan for $128 on; Sanctuary "Campus" sweater for $130 on; "Ha-penny" cardigan for $128 on; "Abbraccio" cardigan for $298 on; Free People "Navajo" cardigan for $168 on; "Flower to flower" vest for $168 on; "Ecote" sweater coat for $88 on; Bycorpus "Popcorn" sweater for $68 on; Dallin Chase "Wally" sweater for $198 on; Cheap Monday "Coco" cardigan for $120 on
