Style Inspiration: Chunky Winter Knits


Style Inspiration: Chunky Winter Knits

THERE IS A CERTAIN ALLURE in a chunky knit on cold winter days, regardless of whether they’re spent outdoors exploring fields and villages in the English countryside, or tucked away in your favourite café in the city. The cable knit or aran sweater juxtaposes the rustic, almost melancholic, feel of wool and alpaca, with a relaxed yet modern fit, mixing the romantic and old fashioned with the contemporary. Its versatility knows no bounds: wear it with your boyfriend jeans and ballet flats for a relaxed fisherman look, or tuck it into a structured skirt with clean accessories for more sophistication. Regardless, if you find the perfect heavy-knit sweater, never let it go.

Swap out dark hues in favour of whites and ivories. A cable knit worn with crepe straight leg pants, and accessorised with subtle golden details and a red lip, will go a long way.

Victoria lives in the south of Spain, having moved there from her native country Ukraine when she was just a child. She finds herself looking up to timeless icons from past decades including Jackie O, Grace Kelly, Katherine Deneuve and Audrey Hepburn, and longing for sunny afternoons on the French Riviera and walks along the Seine during spring. Always overdressed and dishing out on tailored pieces and shoes – secretly dreaming they were from Dior or Saint Laurent – she dresses for herself rather than others, and would trade breakfast for Vogue or a one way ticket to anywhere beautiful.
