How to Style Up Your Favorite Sweatshirt
By Sara Antonuccio
Sweatshirts for fall are entirely underrated. What else is perfect for lounging around the house, running to get errands, and meeting friends for a casual lunch? Few wardrobe outerwear staples are as versatile as your favorite sweatshirt, so here’s how to wear it for all occasions:
Pleated Mini Skirt
Channel the 90s by pairing your star sweatshirt with a pleated mini skirt (sometimes called a tennis skirt). Classic color combinations for this sporty-feminine look include grey and pink, blue and grey, and black and white. Make sure your sweatshirt isn’t too oversized to avoid a length mismatch; you don’t want your sweatshirt to be longer than your skirt!
An easy way to dress up a casual sweatshirt is to lay on the accessories! Bold, blingy earrings, a sweet pearl necklace, or a faux diamond tennis bracelet add sophistication to an informal look to kick it up a notch. Choose earrings that are either long or large, and if you’re not into pearls, any necklace in the style of a choker will do.
Slim Jeans and Heels
You’re probably used to throwing on a pair of jeans with your sweatshirt when you need to leave the house, but did you know you can easily turn this laid back look into an outfit ready for a casual lunch or dinner with friends by adding a simple heel? Booties, wedges, mules, and stilettos are all no-fail options.
Slinky Slip Dress
When summer has gone, are your slip dresses sitting in the closet gathering dust? Give them new life by pairing them with your favorite sweatshirt! The contrast between the chunky knit and the slinky silk is perfect for brisk fall dates and family get-togethers. Don’t forget to add a heel for a slightly more formal look!
Sweatshirts fit in everywhere! You can easily make your favorite sweatshirt the centerpiece of your wardrobe simply by pairing it with the right complementary pieces and accessories. Stay cozy!
