Statement Knits: Thumbs up or down?

Thursday, October 25, 2012

Would you be brave enough to wear a chunky sweater with a witty pattern or a bold colour combo this autumn? I wasn’t sure about this one since my navy blues and greys are so dear to me but my friend Sofia totally changed my mind. Last week for our lunch-date she wore the prettiest hand-knitted sweater with no makeup and loose, wavy hair. The sweater gave enough statement so she could just relax and enjoy the coziness of it all while looking totally sassy. I'm thinking about getting this one. It’s quite fanciable, isn’t it? (And so perfect just before Halloween). xo

P.S: Princess Di rocked the trend as well in the early 80's:)
P.P.S: Plus, the super cozy knit dresses.

Colourful patterns, Im ok with. But animal prints, although they are really sweet and I am seeing them everywhere, I am neither young enough or eccentric enough to wear one!

I love a good quality knit jumper.

I love this look! I just bought a sassy sweater with an owl on it and I'm in love!

Hmmm...as much as I love sweaters, I am not feeling the animal print... :) XOXO

I'm in! Love that embroidered flower one, so sweet! My mom actually has some vintage pillows that match it perfectly :)

I'm not sure I could rock them, but I just know others can and do...so I say, go for it! :)

Yes! They are difficult to find though. I've been shopping recently and it seems like everyone has the same striped/solid/boring sweaters in the store. Or I find an interesting one and there's wool in them which make me itch like crazy. I loved the Otomi one you included and the vintage Mini Mouse. So cute!

Amy, your sweater sounds fabulous, indeed. Btw: I just got the ghost sweater this morning. I couldn't resist. It's so cool:)

Yay, Monica!

That is fantastic, Christianna:)

How lovely, Ashleigh! I am totally swooning over that embroidered flower pattern.

Julia, Top Shop has a few that you might like or J.Crew or even Asos.

Here is one that I adore: http://www.jcrew.com/womens_category/sweaters/crewnecks/PRDOVR~28415/28415.jsp

I absolutely love this post! Especially the three last sweaters made my heart beat faster! Autumn doesn't have to be scary because of bad weather, when you have such beautiful knits on you! Greetings from Poland.

I don't mind the geo prints, but the graphic ones and animals are a little too much for my liking.
