comfy luxe

Chunky knits are THE BEST comfort clothes! I can’t tell you how many white, black and grey sweaters I’ve acquired in the last couple years. What’s funny is how every one of them differs from the other, leading to the “this one has detailed sleeves”; “that one has a different knit” or “this one is so chunky”. Of course, you only need at max maybe three, each in a neutral color or print but it’s definitely a struggle when they’re all so cute!

And can I point out how versatile knits are for most of the seasons. Depending on how you wear it, they can be layered under coats for the colder months or lightly layered for the cooler months of spring and fall. I can’t tell myself no now, when I can wear it for three seasons out of the year.

But what I LOVE about this ensemble is the monochromatic effect. There’s always something refreshing about the overall concept. I switch up color combinations in between two or three. I learned from Olivia Palermo who keeps it at two colors when she wants an outfit to stand out. Less is definitely more. And it doesn’t necessarily have to be neutral colors or a monochromatic palette, it can be contrasting as well.
Now I added the fedora to complete everything. I walked out of the house so bundled up, my boyfriend asked for a fast draw (a duel between two cowboys in those western films). Funny as it was then, I still confidently strutted this outfit. I mean fedoras are a staple for Rosie H. Whitley. And here, I believe I channeled it in my own way. 😉
