Sweatshirts are huge news this season. Shop the Marie Claire edit of the coolest ways to get cosy, now...
Sweatshirts are the statement wardrobe staple of the moment, and everyone from Anna Dello Russo to Rihanna is going crazy over SS14’s comfiest fashion trend.
While the sweatshirt may find its roots in P.E classes and, well, the whole of the 80s, this tomboy trend receives a girlie touch for the spring/summer 2014 revival. Yes, fashion is having a fun moment with oversized jumpers, using cat prints, cheeky slogans and even disected flowers to add that softer side to a masculine shape. Try watercolour florals to sweeten these separates, and a mixture of satin-silky and cuddly fur textures to put your stamp on the trend.
No longer just a casual and understated option, sweatshirts are the new stand out fashion piece you have to have in your wardrobe. Whether it’s over-the-top embellishment or catwalk-inspired textures, the right sweatshirt will make your outfit.
