Hands-down my favorite trend to try this fall is the dressy sweatshirt look. It’s one-part comfy, two-parts cozy and all things fabulous to the maximus.
This autumn is shaping up to be a super chic season. Yesterday, Amanda showed us how to be breathtaking in black and today it’s all about stretching the longevity of our lounge wear. That means we can finally go to the grocery store in something comfortable. And warm! Which is especially handy in the ice cream–ahem–frozen veggie isle.
It’s true. We wouldn’t be caught dead in our sweats when running errands. It’s just who we are. I even dress up to visit the doctor and the nurse practitioner gives me the suspicious side eye like, you like fine to me…and I’m all, GIVE ME THE PINK BUBBLE GUM MEDICINE NOW! Like a total crazy person who happens to be rockin a merlot sheath dress and leather booties.
Besides comfort, there are so many wonderful things about this sweatshirt trend:
(1) Laundry day just got easier because sweatshirts don’t require ironing or dry cleaning
(2) Sweatshirts aren’t itchy (take that chunky wool knit!)
(3) Pair it with blue jeans, colored jeans, black leggings, leather paneled leggings (or a side stripe) and keep it casual with your everyday flats
(4) Dress it up by layering big statement necklaces followed by a leather pencil skirt and pointy-toe heels
So many options it makes my head spin! In a good way. A very, very good way. Pray tell, will you be glamming it up in a sweatshirt this season?
