Princess Diana rocked them with biker shorts. Kanye Wast rocks his with sweatpants. The fashion it-girls of the moment pair theirs with skirts. Yes, we're talking about sweatshirts. This versatile style item was once considered a lounge or sport-related item that rarely, if ever, could be considered stylish. However, when Princess Diana stepped out in her iconic college sweatshirt, biker shorts and sneakers combo, the world sat up straight and realised just how good sweatshirts could be.
Fast forward to 2021, and sweatshirts are having a moment yet again. Thanks to the athleisure thrend that is going absolutely nowhere, items like sweatshirts, joggers, sneakers, and activewear are not only for the gym, but also to make a style statement on the streets. Sweatshirts for women can be seen on the runway, in the biggest fashion magazines and on the trendiest fashionistas out there. Want to get in on the trend? Here's what to need to consider.
A sweatshirt can be unflattering because it is generally oversized. This is why it's important to play with proportions. For example, if you're going to wear an oversized black sweatshirt, pair it with biker shorts or leggings to show off the shape of your legs. Having something fitted at the bottom keeps your look balanced. You could also find a cropped sweatshirt that reaches just below your ribcage and rock them with a pair of baggy jeans. Even though you're wearing a baggy item on your upper body and your lower half, because you've got the exposed midriff, your body is balanced out.
Channel off-duty tennis star realness by pairing a white sweatshirt with a white pleated skirt and classic Reebok sneakers. Stock up on plain sweatshirts for all your days lounging on the couch, and rock a grey sweatshirt with leggings for your next gym sweat session. If you want, you can even dress your sweatshirt up. Pair a plain sweatshirt with a leather skirt or leather trousers, and slip on a pair of stiletto heels. Then, of course, you simply must pile on all the accessories. Layer an assortment of necklaces of different lengths, and decorate your fingers with rings. Keep it classic with gold, or mix and match your metals for a cool edge. Don't forget to grab a chic leather clutch bag, and you're ready for a night our on the town.
Rocking a sweatshirt for men is fairly easy. Pair your mens sweatshirt with jeans, joggers or cargo pants for a slightly dressier finish, and complete the look with the latest pair of Adidas Shoes on the market, and one of our Vans bags.
