How to wear an oversized knit in autumn or winter

I love chunky knits – they’re perfect for weekends and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Seeing that I work from home, I can dress like this most days. Today I’m on a hectic assignment marking deadline (I shouldn’t really be blogging right now…) but hey, taking a break is good to revive the mind 😉

Chunky oversized knits are perfect for winter. I found this oversized jersey at Ackermans recently and I love it. You can wear it with a short sleeved top when it’s hotter, or with a winter top for extra warmth. This is one of my favourite outfits for winter – chic, casual and comfy.

Love this jersey 🙂



What I’m wearing: Grey oversized knit from Ackermans / Sunglasses from Witchery / Leggings from Woolworths / Black leather boots from Spitz

Another way of wearing this oversized knit is to pair it with flat ballet pumps – or even with flat boots. Below is a picture of my hairstyle today. This easy up-do is one of my favourite up styles – it’s really quick to do and all you need is bobby pins.

This hairstyle can be modified to be more dramatic (which is how I like to wear it to weddings / an evening out) or to sit a bit lower. The hair roll is very trendy right now and for me – it’s WAAAYYY easier to create than the braid trend.

Let me get back to my marking – no matter how much I’m procrastinating, I have a 5pm deadline and there is no way around it. Enjoy the public holiday tomorrow South African peeps 🙂
