Style Challenge | Layered Chunky Knits

Gap.KnitSweater.RW.01.15i

Chunky knits, cool toned prints, layers, and creamy neutrals – all staples in my winter wardrobe. Armed with these winter essentials, I am ready to confidently & stylishly conquer the frigid temps that January, February, and March always bring. With the holiday season behind us, I find myself drawn to blues and greens, some may call it a subconscious yearning for spring I call it – favorite colors of the month! I’ve been incorporating winter blue as a pop of color  – plaids, prints, chambray, all perfect for the chilly winter months. And yes, those are white pants – winter white to be exact. Call me a fashion rule breaker and on a Monday #scandalous!

I’ve been seeing more and more layering under chunky sweaters and I’ve got to admit I was skeptical, but ended up being pleasantly surprised. I love how effortless and practical this look is for the winter. Not only was I warm but you know how chunky sweaters can sometimes, okay scratch that, more often than not be itchy? Not a problem when you layer…

I’ve been thinking a lot about engaging with readers and creating a community here in 2015. In hopes of encouraging others (and myself) to step outside a style comfort zone, I thought I would start a weekly series aimed at trying different trends and showcasing what we all come up. I would hope this series could serve as inspiration for new ways to try trends. I am always inspired by the creativity of this community. Bonus if you shop your closet to do so! (because believe me I am always looking for ways to remix my closet!)

This week’s style challenge – should you choose to accept it, is grab layer and test it out under a chunky sweater. If you put together a look with this weeks style challenge, tag me on Instagram & use the hashtag #rwstylechallenge2015 – I will feature a few looks at the end of the week on my insta. Additionally, if you blog about your look leave a comment below with a link to your post, I will pick my favorite of the week and feature it here on Routes&Wings on Friday…

In other news, I did a little sprucing up here on Routes&Wings over the weekend, a new look and her own domain name. Same site but just a little more official and less complicated. Happy Monday, heres to the start of a great week…

Thanks for reading along…
