STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: The Fashion Sweatshirt

Style Advice of the Week

Whether they are structured or oversized, sweatshirts aren’t just for the weekend. Discovering that sweatshirts and hoodies aren’t just comfort wear or for the gym may be new for some of you. Those nights when that extra layer of a jacket isn’t needed, the fashion hoodie or sweatshirt can be the perfect solution. As a CollegeFashionista reader, surely, you have been paying attention to the runway. The sweatshirt trend is hitting the scene in a major way this season.

This trend is very easy to transition into the streets. Sweatshirts and hoodies have been a staple in a college student’s wardrobe since forever. Now, they are more fashion-forward and wearable other than being loungewear. You get the comfort feel and you look great — you can’t beat that. The Fashionisto shows how cool and fashionable they can be. He styles his fashion hoodie, which is just a sweatshirt with a hood, with denim jeans cuffed at the ankle to highlight his boots.

You can apply this look to your wardrobe by looking for sweatshirts with embellishments on them — something that will make the item stands out more than graphic writing or a college logo. They are great to add some style and comfort to your everyday wear. However, dressing them up for the office or an event has proven to be a major trend of today’s fashion guru. I dare you to take your idea of a sweatshirt a little further this fall season. I can’t get enough of comfort and style; some said it couldn’t be done.
