Winter... not my favourite time of the year, but fashion-wise it actually might come close. Because I'm almost always cold, I'm pretty good at the layering-thing and this means a lot of big knits. So I must say, I absolutely love big knits and I cannot lie ;)
Therefore 3 reasons why I love big knits.
1. Big knits warm me up.
On the coldest of days, when I'm wearing a wool sweater with for example a blouse underneath it, even I will break out in sweat. Let me tell you that's a good thing for me, because normally I would've turned blue :P
2. Big knits are really comfortable.
Most of the big knits I own, are baggy. So they hide everything, even my (non)christmas-kilo's. Also because they're made of soft material they're easy and nice to wear (I know you also have those prickly kind of knits, but mostly I don't buy these kind of knits or when I do, I only wear them with something underneath it, so that makes it comfortable again). So actually, big knits make me comfortable.
3. Big knits can be worn on every occasion.
Obviously you can dress yourself down by wearing your big knit more casual, with a ripped or 'worn' jeans, some boots and a leather jacket (like I did in this outfit). But also, you can dress up and even wear it to a (not so hot) party. For example with a white blouse, a black or dark blue pants or if it's a longer knit with tights and pumps or ankle boots.
I found the one I'm wearing at Cos and it was on sale, lucky me! I immediately loved it, because of the color. A light grey fits perfectly with my black-fever, but it's also really nice with blue / jeans, white, camel and other shades of grey. I also like that it's baggy and that it's longer. This way I can wear it both ways: as a dress and as a sweater (like I did for this shoot).
I decided to wear a jeans blouse underneath it and styled it with my ripped jeans, my favourite ankle boots and a leather jacket, since it actually wasn't that cold this day...
I'm so happy with this purchase that I'm wearing it almost every day. But don't worry, I'm not sleeping in it...yet :P
