Countdown Till Christmas Day 3 - How I'd style chunky knits.

Hello my lovelies

How I'd style Chunky Knits

Chunky Jumper- Havren 
Statement Necklace- Zara
Studded Fedora- Pretty Little Thing
Black Sheepskin Ankle Boots- Wholesale7
Lipstick- Marc Jacobs
Feather Bag- Sugar + Style
PVC Panel Leggings- Asos

So yes, I officially fail at life ATM! Things have been so hectic/chaotic here ATM that I'm afraid even my love of our little blog has not been enough to get me here as often as I'd like. For this again I am terribly sorry. I hope you can understand at this busy time of year!

So today I am here with a styling post all about how I'd personally style this absolutely stunning chunky knit Havren . Now for those of you who are new to Havren, they a womenswear brand, founded in 2012 with (in their own words) the aim to 'Launch a collection with a contemporary take on feminine dressing'. This to me seems like the perfect description of their designs, feminine but with a contemporary structure & tailoring.  The patterns and palettes are overtly feminine however the fabrics such as ' structured  grosgrain and printed silk' add a touch of class and sexuality that the collection as a whole screams contemporary. They honestly have some amazing tailored separates, I am in love with a pair of structured, cream Cigarette pants on their site.  

My ultimate love however lies with their delightfully luxurious knits. With bang on trend shades of pastel pinks, embellished necklines and slouchy fits all in luxurious fabrics, Havren is like a little haven (get the pun, oh she is a witty one indeed) for anybody looking for a luxury knit (or two!). 

Obviously I just fell head over heels with this chunky, over sized knit In my favourite shade of black, and obviously I just HAD to style it up for you all (with yet again more black). Therefore I paired it with these stunning PVC panel leggings (I do love me some PVC), black, cosy ankle boots, statement necklace, fedora (every fashionista's accessory of choice this AW), feather bag and of course to break the all black colour palette with a vibrant purple lip from the stunning Marc Jacobs beauty range.

You've all come to know by now about my love of clashing textures and I feel that with a big, chunky knit such as this texture is a key element in mixing it up a bit, hence the edition of both feathers and PVC. I wanted to also keep the look 'young' by the addition of the studded fedora and statement necklace, proof that with the edition of clever accessories you can take a simple knit and make it into a showstopping item in your wardrobe!

Once again I certainly hope you all enjoyed this post. Let me know how you'd style this little stunner in the comments below or leave me a link to your own favourite item and I will be happy to check it out and maybe even style it up in the future!

Hope you are all having a lovely run up to Christmas.
