A classic gym and loungewear garment, the sweatshirt has been elevated to wardrobe staple status, thanks to designers and street style savants who have catalysed the “luxe sweatshirt” trend. So stop reserving those comfy tops for couch time in front of the TV. Here are some style tips on how to pair your sporty tops with chic pieces to form your very own luxe ensembles.
The quickest way to glamourise your sweatshirt is by wearing it with boyfriend jeans and a pair of statement heels. It’s casual chic with a hint of tomboy flair, achieving understated sex appeal.
Key word: Layer. Wear your sweatshirt over a button down top. You can pair it with jeans for a preppy look but for an ultra-modern feminine touch, wear it with a skirt-and-tights combo. Complete your effortlessly cool look with knee-high boots.
To go all-out girly and if the weather’s not too cold, pair your frumpy sweatshirt with a short, lacy skirt and classic pumps.
Another option is wearing your sweatshirt with a printed skirt such as this striped one. The midi length allows you to show off some cute booties too! A knotted belt helps put a break to the silhouette, creating more shape.
If you’re not in the mood to wear a skirt, pair your sweatshirt with shorts. Wearing them with black tights and heeled shoes is a solid way to look city chic.
