Extra Chunky Knit Jumpers | Winter Wardrobe Hero

Autumn Winter Styling Khaki Hat Fashion BloggerHappy December!  Oh wow did the temperature drop all of a sudden!  I'm getting increasingly excited about heading over to Germany next week for the Christmas markets.  Although, this past week has reminded me of just how cold 2°C feels against your skin when the wind blows!  So, it's time to discuss all things cosy jumper related - we're talking thick, chunky knits that allow you to wear three layers underneath.  No problem.  The kind that trap the heat around your neck, cuffs and waist.  And the kind that look fabulous, but feel even better...

I'll be the first to admit to spending that little bit more on jumpers, because it's very easy to justify them keeping you warm.  Y'know, surviving and all that.  But when it comes to knitwear, I genuinely do feel as though it can be a case of 'you get what you pay for'.  So, a few factors in particular feature high on the chunky knitted jumper lust-list:

Some points more obvious than others, it would seem.  Why the last one?  Because how many times have you ordered a chunky knit jumper online, only for it to arrive and turn out to be flatter than a finished pack of crisps?!  Nope, no thank you.  The kind to look out for this winter are those that you can squeeze in between your hands and still be no closer to your fingers meeting.  I've also mentioned length, but your ideal length depends entirely on your preference.  Personally, I usually wear high waisted jeans and so a slightly shorter length of jumper suits best.  However, keep longer lengths in mind if you're heading somewhere cold (ahem, German Christmas markets) and need some longer length options to keep your hips warm underneath a coat.  Ooh, cosy....

A mega-fan of extra thick jumpers?  What do you lookout for when buying chunky knit jumpers?  Or maybe you just can't wait for winter to end?  Either way, let me know in the comments below!

Hope December is a fabulously festive month for you all, and treats you very, very kindly...

With love,

  1. Such a gorgeous outfit!! <3 Absolutely love the chunky knit and those details on the jeans! <3 Have a great weekend sweetie! :)

  2. It's fun, today temperatured dropped even here (well, here in Rome it means 12°)!^^
    And of course, it's time for wool knits even for me!
    Like you, after years of experience, I'm became pretty exigent on quality of knits, it really makes the differece, more than any other clothes!
    Anyway love how you've styled your jumper, stylish and original as usual!
    In love with your jeans! :D

  3. I just love chunky, cozy sweaters! The one you have looks beautiful (and warm)... it really is disappointing when you think you purchased a thick sweater only to find out it's not at all. This makes me more excited to keep pulling out my winter pieces, too!

  4. This sweater is perfect for the season. I love the pattern on it and it seems soooo comfy and warm !
    I love your jeans too, with the sequins.♥

  5. Happy December to you Gabrielle! I know, how on earth did it suddenly become like the film Frozen outside, very icy indeed!

    Your outfit here certainly looks the part for Winter, your jumper is gorgeous! I'm on the hunt for some great Winter wear and for some warm coats also.

    This outfit styling is really very well done and those high heels really finalise the look so nicely, you look so pretty in your photographs as always!

    Thanks for sharing and I hope December is a wonderful month for you!

    Lots of love,

    Laura xo

  6. This sweater is super cute! I love the modern design and the cozy look of it. I'm also really loving those jeans, the details are perfect for the holiday season. Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a great weekend ahead!



  7. The weather in NYC also took a sudden turn for the chillier recently and I've also been pulling out my jumpers to wear again to stay warm. I kind of went off chunky knits for more body conscious styles but you've totally inspired me to get back into thick wooly jumpers again Gabrielle! You look fabulous!

  8. The sweater is cute, but THOSE JEANS! Love! <3 -

  9. The best part of winter is chunky sweaters, since the weather is cold where I live!

  10. I agree with you: I believe it is worth investing in jumpers and chunky knits, not just because they seem warmer, but also I tend to wear and watch them a lot! This one is lovely!

  11. Happy December Gabrielle!!! Love the jumpers and the colours and I bet it is so comfy and warm!! I also love your jeans, will look for them next time I visit h&m :)


  12. U look so beautiful babe...I just love that chunky sweater on you and those denims look so wow...Happy December hun...xx, Neha

  13. you put pieces together so well and always look great!

  14. I agree! Good knitwear is worth investing in, especially good chunky knitwear. Personally, I always lookout for the thickness, tightness, and feel of the knit. They can't be too flimsy or loose or scratchy, you know? I swear, I'm getting so excited for your trip for you! Enjoy it!

  15. The temp has dropped! I need a jumper like this after being in the heat for the last month. I cannot cope with the uk!

  18. I lived in chunky sweater this week. I can't believe how cold it is here in the UK now. Enjoy your trip.

  19. I’m a huge fan of chinky knit sweaters, but this chunky knit jumper is to die for!! I love how you styled it also. Your shoes are sooooooooo cute.

  20. I love knitwear in the winter, I own far too many for my own good. The outfit looks great on you x

  21. This is the type of jumpers I need! Those that actually stop the cold from getting to you. Often jumpers aren't that great, and to be honest I don't have that many that I know actually protect me from the cold. Investing is always the best answer!

  24. You always look so elegant no matter what you wear.
    I love the idea of rhinestones on jeans! That makes them a bit more done up - I don't really wear them much because I feel a bit too casual!
    Love love your hat too!

    You look GORGEOUS, this looks like a Dior or CHANEL ad! I always enjoy seeing your posts <3

  27. I love the pairing of the chunky sweater with the sleek stilettos <3 such a nice contrast

  28. I am SO glad it's chunky knit season! There is nothing like the weather ou!tside being freezing yet you're snuggled up and protected against it in a lovely big jumper - heaven! I also love that there are so many more choices this year, it's hard to know where to start

  29. I feel the cold, so chunky knit jumpers are an essential in my wardrobe. On the other hand, I'm petite, so I have to be really careful about cut, fit and length. Yours is gorgeous, and I love the subtle detailing on the jeans too. x
