Why wear sweatshirts?
We show you different ways to wear it.
Sweatshirts are a staple in everyone’s closet. Almost as basic as a pair of jeans or a white T-shirt.
It is not something sporty, although they were originally intended for sports practice from the 30s onwards.
Later, its use went to the street, and that’s where it became a basic. It has been adopted by cultures such as hip hop, skaters, teenagers, and college students. They are suitable for adult men and women who want to look stylish. Today, they appear on the runways because they are functional and comfortable. They are associated with the athleisure style, which brings sportswear to everyday wear in a special way. All famous designers have sweatshirts in their collections, so don’t think they are out of fashion.
For today’s woman, sweatshirts are an everyday wardrobe staple in almost any season. In 1976, the movie Rocky, turned a sweatshirt into an icon by wearing it in one scene. This scene has been imitated countless times, and the hoodie has become a must-have item. In 2020 we were forced to stay at home for several months, which caused the world to move away from the suit and tie to a look composed of pants, and sweatshirt, something comfortable, which will undoubtedly remain a trend over the years.
Sweatshirt with an elegant touch
Believe it or not, a sweatshirt can look stylish and you can wear it to the office, the movies, or fashion week.
To make a sweatshirt look more formal, the key is to wear the material correctly, wearing it with dress pants and smart shoes.
Give it another style by playing with layers
A hoodie isn’t the most revolutionary thing in the world on its own, but you can create a fun look by adding some layers. To do this, you should choose a garment that is not too big on you and made of good material, complete the look with a bomber, military, biker or even denim, depending on the look you want to achieve.
The hoodie can be worn with more formal pants or chinos and a classic coat. Hoodies allow you to be creative and you can use different colors or patterns for a more interesting look, but you should keep in mind the occasion.
For example, David Beckham wears a printed hoodie to an NBA game.
You can wear dark solid colors (gray, black, navy) if the occasion is less casual, but you can opt for lighter shades or bolder prints for more casual occasions, from dates to evenings out with friends.
Add interesting pieces to your outfit.
The hoodie is basic, so you can be a little more adventurous with the rest of the pieces by adding some flashy sneakers, an interesting jacket or fun accessories.
Different ways to incorporate it into your look
From shape to fabric, cut or color. Taking note of everything, the fashion expert himself pointed out some sure-fire combinations where sweatshirts will always be in demand:
-Satin sweatshirt, layered shirt, high-waisted pants and stilettos.
-In lingerie dresses, and more daring footwear such as cowboy or military boots and shopping bags. A good option to show off every day.
-An infallible duo: sweatshirt and jacket.
-With oversize aesthetics, stars can also be an option for a good look if we choose to wear them as a dress with stilettos and a small bag or clutch.
Accessories are always welcome.
Accessories such as scarves, earrings, long necklaces and even brooches can completely change the look we achieve with our favorite sweatshirt.
It boosts contrasting pieces with its athletic aesthetic, resulting in the coveted style I mentioned earlier, athleisure, or the famous “neat but casual” look that subtly incorporates the comfort of the latest trendy sportswear.
