As I discussed in my V-neck trend report a month ago, sweater silhouettes are very minimal this season. In order to add more detail and flare to a simple shape, brands are using thicker yarns and wider looms to add dimension to their otherwise flat sweaters. Also, a thick knit scarf is a nice contrast to your favorite boiled wool coat or even a tshirt a-la Lenny Kravitz. These chunky scarves are an alternative to the traditional flannel blanket scarf, without sacrificing their dramatic size. The large weaved sweaters and scarves look great with a simple pair of leggings or skinny jeans, and are ideal for keeping cozy in the library while you finish your term paper by midnight.
Here are some scarves and sweaters to shop now:
H&M // Lands' End // Christian Siriano
Zara // Rag & Bone // Reformation
