Chunky Knits for the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s: For Work

Quote of the day: “Put blinders onto those things that hold you back, especially the ones in your own head.” Meryl Streep

Wearing your chunky knit sweater in a work environment can be possible in many situations.  The addition of appropriate work pants, mid heels, and a garnish of jewelry is the key.  Drop over to see Chunky Knits with jeans (here) and over a dress (here).

50’s Chunky Knits:  I layered a white blouse under my sweater to give the sweater a more serious note.   I love this belt over things like sweaters and dresses but not on pants because it snaps in the back…so here is a perfect time to wear it!

60’s Chunky Knits: Nancy’s sweater’s chunkiness comes from it’s cables, yet it is slim through the arms.  Consequently, I had her wear a jacket over the sweater for the work place.

70’s Chunky Knits: For this office look, we layered the sweater over a silk blouse.  Adding light colored slacks accentuates the gorgeous colors of the sweater.

    Beautiful sweaters, lovely outfits. I’d like to see more of Nancy’s sweater – it’s such a great color. (Charlotte knits beautifully too, I see. Why am I not surprised!)

      My mom hasn’t knitted now in ages—especially once I started doing it!! I think she finds it too time consuming! And I agree—sewing certainly gets you results much faster!!

  • Oh lovely knits.
    I love it.
