I can not tell you the last time I actually wore a sweatshirt intentionally as a part of my look. Not that the sweatshirt is horrible… it’s just for the most part, I have saved them for lazy days around the house or a quick trip to the grocery store. But with so many cool, chic and fashionable sweatshirts ripping the runways and in stores this fall… I have quickly changed my opinion on the purpose of this old closet stand-by!
Yep, that’s right… The sweatshirt has gotten a makeover! And we are talking a million dollar makeover too! Fantastic colors and prints (like leopard and plaid), awesome embellishments (like jewels and feathers), and fabulous fabrics and textures (like leather and lace). In fact, this new and fashionable sweatshirt can be a great alternative to that knit sweater that you are thinking about wearing and can even be styled very similarly to a sweater as well! And even better yet, this reinvented look can be just as versatile too! Pair it with jeans, a skirt or shorts…. dress it up or dress it down! I just love it!
Of course, I picked up this one as part of the 3.1 Philip Lim for Target madness – mostly because it was just SO fun! I decided to layer it with a chambray button down, jeans and boots. But there are so many more possibilities with this guy (and the others I’ve grabbed up — lace and leather included) that I will feature in future posts!
What I’m Wearing: 3.1 Philip Lim for Target Boom Sweatshirt, J. Crew Polka Dot Chambray Button Down, Joe’s Distressed Skinny Ankle Jeans, Zara Ankle Boots and Vintage Gucci Clutch
Where Am I: Shopton Road Plaza
