Sweatshirts have come a long way. Their common use for the gym and typical college style has evolved so much. With the emergence of the “sport luxe” also known as the “athleisure” trend, many common workout clothes are now trendy and worn in so many casual settings. The sweatshirt has been redesigned! They are now adorned and stylistically cut into new patterns, shapes and styles for everyone. For one thing, now your favorite sweatshirt, can be your new look for a lunch date or night out.
Here are some great tips for selecting and styling a sweatshirt that is classy, fun and fits your personal style outside of the norm.
1. Choose a sweatshirt with open shoulders, ruffles or embroidery for a chic look.
Don’t go to oversized, and watch your proportions. Also, limit bulky fabrics, especially if you are top heavy or live in warmer weather.
2. Pair with your favorite pair of dark denim jeans.
Dark denim makes for a more dressed up look. Moreover, go straight or skinny for your jean cut if you are curvy/bottom heavy, like myself. For those less hippy, try a wide-leg, or boyfriend jeans, to give your look some balance.
3. Add height with open-toed mules with blocked heels, or your favorite heeled boots.
Mules are great for balance, support and style without committing to a boot for the Fall season. I’m learning not to be anti-heel, so muled heels were great for me! In addition, if you want to go dressier, try your favorite pair of basic high heels or stilettos.
With this in mind, you have a reason to look at a sweatshirt and imagine how classy it could be! A sweatshirt is great for comfort and can offer some shield on those minimal chilly days when a jacket is just too much. Check out some cute options below if you are tempted to give them a try!
