Best Chunky​ Sweater ​for Winter 2019

I live in chunky, oversized turtle-neck sweaters during winter time. Here are some of my favorite ones and how I like to style them.

Hi guys

Sweaters, as you all know already, are essential pieces in every wardrobe. My favorite ones are those with high-neck or turtle-neck. I live in chunky, oversized turtle-neck sweaters during winter time. Here are some of my favorite ones and how I like to style them.

Long turtle-neck

This sweater is from Lindex. It’s soft, cozy and has a long thick turtle-neck. ( Link to the sweater). Usually, I put my hair up in a bun when I’m wearing a turtle-neck, or I shove my hair inside the turtle-neck. I think it elevates the whole look.

I usually wear mine over my favorite faux-leather pants ( you can read about it here). Then I add a pair of over the knee boots and a hat to complete the look. It’s comfortable, chic and keeps me warm all day long. To keep this simple outfit from being boring, choose sweaters that have kind of exciting element. I chose this one with a color block at the front.

High-neck

Although this one is oversized just like the first one, it’s not long. Therefore it sits perfectly well on the waistline. (link to the sweater)chunky sweater from Lindex

During winter I like to add a thinner sweater with a long turtle-neck underneath my high-neck sweaters. It will keep me warm whilst add a little bit of edge to the outfit. If you like you can add a trench coat on the top for an extra layer.

Massimo Dutti knit wear

I live in this one during the winter when there is no snow on the ground. I bought it three years ago from Massimo Dutti and it still looks good. That’s what I call an essential piece, you can wear it year after year.

For this look, I added a slip skirt underneath. I like the lace coming out at the button, it adds a touch of sexiness to the look without being too much. My trick to keep the turtle-neck straight is to wear a scarf around my neck under it. it gives an extra support to the garment to stand upright.

Here are some of my favorite sweaters for this winter, in case you are looking to add some to your wardrobe.

5 Keys to Layering in Winter (curvy girls guide)

nastaran20

Hi guys

We  have seen girls all over social media who wear a biker or bomber jacket over a  jumper with a pair of jeans for a cold-read it with hand gesture- winter day. But that’s not reality for us who live in cold parts of Europe, Canada, Asia….some days wearing 3-4 layer is the only way to stay warm. In some cities -14°C is a normal temperature during the winter.

Although we all know that the key to stay warm in Winter is layering, many girls (specially curvy girls like me) are not comfortable with this idea. They think that it would make them look bulky, here are 5 key pieces that I think will help you stay warm without turning to a pile of clothes.

1- Choose the right parka

Parka is an essential piece. It comes in many different shapes, length, materials and prices. Choose one that comes with a belt-or with drawstring around waist, it will show your curves and body-shape . Don’t forget to choose one with a hoodie. It’s a necessity to protect your face on snowy or windy days.

Ralph Lauren parka

You can check some of my favorites here, here and here (all on sail).

2-Quilted jacket

A thin quilted jacket is a good investment. You can wear it under a parka or under an oversized coat for more protection. Also it’s good on its own with a pair of jeans and your favorite boots. I love this one that I bought a few years back. It’s thin yet warm and the color combination is exactly what I like. There are lots of options out there I link some of my favorites down.

Similar here, here and here.

3-Thermal clothing

Gant boots

They called thermal underwear too and usually are style of two pieces; top and legging. Top comes in many different style; long or short sleeves, top tanks, high neck……while the leggings can be short or long you can even find thermal thighs. Regardless of the style they are game changers since they are thin and keep you really warm. While you have them on, you can wear almost any outfit on top no matter how cold it is without feeling bulky. Usually the information about the material and how much protection you get are provided on the label so you can easily pick one that suits the climate you are living in. I picked up mine from M&S you can find various options on their site under Thermal category.

4- Tights with fleece lining

These are not as protective as the thermal leggings but they are the next best option which keep your legs warm under skirt or a dress. I don’t suggest to wear them underneath tight jeans since they’re not as thin as thermal ones. They are easily accessible online or in wide range of stores, they’re even available on eBay, amazon and target.

5-Winter boots

From UGG to Aquatalia there are vast range of winter boots so you can easily find one that matches your budget and needs. If possible pick them a half size bigger than your shoe size this will allow you to wear thick winter socks without feeling uncomfortable. You can check the ones I’m wearing here.

Scorett

The last tip is that instead of carrying  a big purse or tote, pick a medium or small bag preferably a cross body bag. The vertical line over your body gives the elusion of taller and slimmer figure.

Wish you all having fun and stay warm during cold Winter days.
