Fashion is capable of diversifying garments and styles that originated for a specific purpose so that they’re opened up for different uses. We’ve witnessed it in the military domain, which is the origin, for example, of cargo trousers and bomber jackets
; we’ve seen it with work wear, which has given us garments like the turtleneck sweater or the almighty denim; and the field of sport also serves to break out workout clothes from the gym. Joggers or leggings are great examples of this. Now let’s talk about basic women's sweatshirts
, a garment that won’t just keep you company while you exercise, but will also come with you to class, on trips or when you go out for a beer with friends.
This is a simple, but tremendously practical and comfy, type of clothing (a trait inherited from its origin in sportswear). The basic sweatshirt, with or without a hood, gives urban styles an oversized, casual look with a masculine touch.
Here are some ideas for choosing your day-to-day looks with this garment as the star of the show.Basic women’s sweatshirts in monochrome colours work perfectly with printed pieces
. Choose a pleated skirt with a black and red check print. Wear a red hoodless sweatshirt and a pair of black military boots. Add a pair of cat eye sunglasses, a black beret and a black backpack
with silver studs and a metallic zip. This will give you a bold, statement look.
However, you can also create a simple outfit with single-colour pieces. Try to get your distinguishing point from the detail in the garments. For example, opt for jeans
with frayed hems or slightly flared legs; belts with big statement buckles, or accessories like synthetic wool hats.
There’s also another modern option for a hoodie: choose a metallic silver mini skirt and wear it with a slightly oversized deep blue short sleeve T-shirt. Choose some chunky white trainers with multicoloured details and thick soles; pull your socks up so that they’re visible. And now add a grey hoodie. As you can see, the look’s special touch comes from the small details, even though it’s made up of basic garments.So get yourself a basic women’s sweatshirt now and start imagining all the looks you’ll be able to create
