STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Pull the Pullover My Eyes

June 1st, 2015 at 2:00am

I don’t know about the rest of the country, but here in Southern Ohio we have some pretty fickle weather. One moment it could be 75 degrees with the sun shining and a light breeze, and in a flash (of lighting) a thunderstorm appears with a drastic change in humidity. The awkward change in weather can lead to some resentful feelings toward your clothing. Who wants to be trapped in a thunderstorm without a hood?

The solution, which this Fashionisto displays oh so accurately, is a lightweight pullover hoodie. The material is a soft, lightweight cotton fabric that doesn’t add a lot of extra weight to your outfit. However, the pullover still has the basic structure of a hooded sweatshirt, so the hood (obviously) and rain coverage are still included.

In past years, pullover hoodies have been a big staple for the “sporty style,” but this Fashionisto has chosen to pair his pullover with a pair of blue-wash jeans and a pair of on-trend adidas classic sneakers. He won’t be going to play soccer in those jeans anytime soon, so I would describe this fella’s style as simplistic and casual. It seems that simple style is often overlooked by the fashion masses, but simple pieces can take a Fashionista or Fashionisto a very long way.

Don’t worry ladies, I didn’t forget about your style needs. A lightweight pullover can be worn under a favorite denim jacket when it’s chilly outside, and with a skirt on the warmer days.

All in all, pullovers are smart way to go if you’re absolutely unsure about the weather.
