The rise of the fashion sweatshirt, I suppose, was inevitable due to the recent rise in sporty style. And it took me a while to pay attention, because, like, sweatshirt. Low-key, casual, who cares, right? Wrong. This is the most effortless, comfortable way to wear the sleek, athletic trend. Being in fashion has literally never been easier. And so, surprising myself more than anyone, I have placed fashion sweatshirts on the top of my fall shopping list. I plan on wearing them with unique but sleek pencil skirts, dressed-up track pants (thematic!) and printed skinny pants.
The trend is so big, Business of Fashion just wrote about it. Which means it’s not just a fleeting fad but a business-shaping, bona fide trend. In honor of the smash success status, I give you my top five favorite options out right now. I’ll either be splurging on these, finding them on eBay to save a buck, or foregoing the triple-digit price tag all together for similar styles – and I advise you to do the same if you’d like your fall look to be sharp yet easy-breezy.
