Sweater styles have long extended beyond mohair, cable-knit and cardigan; now you have ankle length coats, cropped tops, and everything in between. With skinny jeans and leggings compressing our bottom halves, it's OK to add a little weight and texture to our upper body, and big chunky sweater are the perfect way to do this.

Throw on a long, belted duster with a camisole top, leggings and your boots, and you're set for a comfy Saturday at home. A nubby, brightly colored sweater with a long tee underneath goes great with a mini or a maxi skirt; pair it with ballet flats and a layered necklace, and you've got a date look or night out with your girlfriends. For some extra flair, add faux fur at the collar and cuffs.
