5 Ways to Style Knitwear Like a French Girl

With winter just around the corner, my current wish-list consists of cozy cables, ribbed turtlenecks, and cashmere sweaters – basically anything that prevents those icy chills. But big, chunky sweaters and thicker layers don’t always come off easily, and I don’t want to look like a yeti, the marshmallow man in Ghostbusters, or Joey in this scene from Friends when he’s wearing all of his clothes.
