SWEAT, SWEAT BABY! Few things in your wardrobe come in as many variations as sweaters and sweatshirts. Originally developed as sportswear, the sweatshirt has come a long way from its sport-oriented origins with many stylish variations. The sweatshirt and sweater are staples of modern streetwear and great for more than just sweaty activities. Today, we appreciate these styles with different cuts, lengths, colours and sizes, making them versatile for nearly any outfit.
EXTRAVAGANT OR MINIMALIST? No matter your personal taste, there's guaranteed to be a sweatshirt or sweater that suits your style. In terms of features and details, the sweatshirt is basically the king of variation. If you like it classic and simple, you can’t go wrong with brands like Carhartt WIP and Forvert. Here, clean lines and simple colours are found. If you're looking for a bit more action, we recommend alife and kickin or Ragwear, which feature unique and seriously cool details throughout.
Whether minimalist or with features like pockets, sleeve- or back print, decorative seams or with buttons - the right sweatshirt is a statement of your personality and there’s something for everyone!
STYLISH CUTS Thanks to the variety of different cuts, there’s sweatshirt variants for every season and style preference. If it’s comfort you’re after, look no further than traditional sweatshirt styles with soft inner linings. During the warmer months, you could even go for something with 3/4 sleeves that are both stylish and practical. In addition, you can find crop-top styles which emphasizes your figure and focuses on the waist. The opposite is the ever-trendy oversized sweatshirt, which has a relaxed style and looks especially cute with skinny jeans. There’s also a sweat jacket to throw over a t-shirt for a sporty and stylish look.
A classic standard is the round crew neck, characterized by its round, ribbed collar. Not only does the collar look nice, but its lightly elastic ability also keeps the sweater pleasantly in shape. You can also find wide crew neck styles for a slightly more feminine look. During the colder seasons, perhaps it’s best to opt for a high collar or turtleneck style for warmth. The wide neck style allows you to show a little more skin and look especially great with accessories like necklaces. The possibilities are endless!
