Style Right Now: Slouchy Sweaters with Skirts

There’s not much better than a chunky knit over leather leggings in terms of casual fall style, except maybe pairing said chunky knit with jeans. A chunky knit sweater works well with a fitted, short or mid-length skirt too. Even a cropped sweater with a maxi.

But what about wearing a slouchy sweater with a looser, longer skirt? An untucked cable knit sweater with a plaid midi? I wore a look like that to a college interview, thinking I was very collegiate. (Yes, an ivory A sweater with a plaid midi skirt. Hey, I got in and went to that school.)

I’m not sure I can pull off that look today. Actually, I’m certain I cannot. But on some of these women, the style looks modern and fresh. I’ll stick to chunky cable knits with jeans and leggings, but please, if you can go pair slouchy and slouchy, please do. Here street style photos of slouchy, chunky knit sweaters paired with a mix of skirt styles.
