How To Wear Two Knits At Once

We often tend to reach for a chunky knit when it's cold out. They're big and cozy like a blanket, and surely should be the warmest option. The truth is it's probably better to double up. Even if you're layering a long sleeve t-shirt underneath your chunky knit, it won't be nearly as warm as two sweaters together. It may seem like a lot, but there is a way to layer two knits without excess bulk successfully. Stay extra cozy while looking stylish by choosing two!

Start with a thin base knit.

A fitted turtleneck is the perfect option to create an intentionally layered look. You can look for one with a bit of texture, too, like a bit of ribbing. Turtlenecks look great layered under a wide variety of other knits, whether it's a cardigan, v-neck, or crew neck sweater.

Make sure the knits have contrasting textures.

Your outer knit can be fuzzy, chunky, or maybe have a cable knit. This creates a modern feel (unless you want to go retro with a twin set). It also gives you the best of both worlds, and you'll feel like you're wrapped in a warm blanket all day.

Go monochrome or opposite.

It's better to create a stark contrast or blend in. If you prefer tonal looks, stick to monochrome tones. If you want to be a bit bolder, choose colors that oppose each other on the color wheel. Or better yet, choose a print for your outer layer! If you're still not sure what colors to choose, white and black always make right base colors.

Try a set.

Why not go all out with a knit set? Knitted skirts are chic and unbelievably warm - you may not even feel the need for tights! The co-ord look is still very much on-trend, and it's one that's practical to embrace. To give your set a more down to earth feel, pair it with chunky combat boots or sneakers and a beanie.

Once you go double, you'll have no more troubles.
