Let me start this by saying that last night, in Brooklyn, it was 3 degrees. Three degrees.
I don’t think I’m alone in saying that I am not ready for the cold weather. Even though it’s January. Even though it’s most certainly winter. The mild temps that we were hit with during December furthered my delusion of avoiding the coldness. That delusion has been dissolved as I walked to the subway this morning during a windchill of 10 degrees. This is not a drill, people. The cold is upon us and we can wear crop tops and sandals all we want, but the freeze is inevitable and we must do something. Break out your favorite layers all you must, but your best defense against the biting chill of mid-January weather is a super chunky knit sweater and your favorite winter coat. Trust me on this one.
Here are 10 of the chunkiest knits out there, so get to steppin’.

The good thing about this one is that it’s cotton, so if you overheat easily, this will keep you warm and cool at the same time.

A lot of times, chunky cardigans just look like something your grandpa would wear. This is not that. The dip dye makes it modern and once again, so freakin’ fuzzy.
