Chunky sweaters are my winter style staple; they pair perfectly with jeans, a cute skirt, can be belted or worn loose, the possibilities are endless. Go with a sweater 1-2 sizes bigger than your typical size for layering. This sweater from H&M is a Large, which makes it loose and comfortable enough to add another sweatshirt underneath. I wanted a contrast to the red so I went with a dark grey sweatshirt.

I always go by the general rule of keeping one part of my body fitted if the other is loose. Fitted jeans are a great go-to for layering your chunky sweater. These are my three favorite jeans to pair with a chunky sweater:

The day wasn’t so bad that I couldn’t wear my new favorite pair of heels. Square toed heels are making a major comeback and I love how sophisticated they look.

The last part to a layered chunky sweater look? Styling. Left alone, a chunky sweater can look frumpy really fast. A simple technique is to roll up the sleeves which allow for arm function and a chance to showcase the sweatshirt underneath. Another simple look? Placing part of the sweater inside you jeans. It’s a disheveled look which ironically looks put together.

Wall #OOTD’s are great, but I’m all about sharing my life and sharing my world, which happens to include New York City. Whether I’m out and about or headed to meet up with someone, there’s always a way to capture the day and place for an amazing #outfitpost.

Sometimes our best photos come when we’re not even trying. Look for backdrops that compliment your outfit and just be yourself. Walking photos look terrific and are a great way to show movement, especially if your outfit has a fun detail like fringe. You don’t want to give everything to the viewer, let them figure it out and have your location tell a story.

Other times, we’re graced with unprecedented backdrops, like this random Ford pick-up truck in the middle of Brooklyn. Don’t be afraid to get into the photo. Sometimes the most ridiculous ideas turn out to be the best photos. Look at your surroundings and see what can be captured. There’s beauty in everything.

    I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today, yet
    I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners
    and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
