How to wear chunky?

Christian Dior Autumn Winter 2010/11 - I love the hand knitted jumper on the left, I saw it in Vogue and thought I can achieve that look - I can buy a High Street chunky knit and some ribbon and customise away - the flaw in the plan is that all the chunky stuff on the High Street (Zara have a long line Aran type cardigan with a belt) makes me look shall we say "matronly" - in a Hattie Jacques sort of a way (I am only a UK size 12 so this should not happen). The last time this look was "in" I borrowed the lovely man's home knitted Starsky and Hutch cardi (it was pre marriage, some time in the mid '70s) and even as a skinny size 10 the resulting sumo look was not good. Best leave the look to the man who did it best!


  1. I think you have to be tiny to wear big sweaters...I feel huge when I wear unfitted them on other people though! love her silk pants!

  2. I agree I think they can make you look huge, I bought and Abercrombie and Fitch Marilyn Monroe style to wear with skinny jeans and I have a huge hand knitted peruvian sweater.. but never wear it.. I should really give to some skinny teen xx

  3. The other problem with these knits is that you boil alive indoors with them - have you ever tried shopping dressed like this - it is a sure fire way to come home without buying anything!
