Oh, statement sweatshirt, how much do we love thee? Let us count the ways: You're cozy, laid-back, and as it turns out, you make every one of our cold-weather outfits even better. Not sure how? No prob, we'll show you. Slide through to see our top nine ways to integrate your fave cotton staple into effortlessly polished everyday looks.
Ridin’ Coattails: Yes, you can totally rock a sophisticated coat over that sweatshirt. In fact, we'd argue that a laid-back hoody spices up the whole ensemble. Round out the look with cropped trousers and bright pumps and you're ready for anything that comes your way.
Button Up: Elevate that cotton hoodie with a pencil skirt (those oversized buttons, tho) and black mid-calf boots. Cozy athleisure just became stylishly ath-luxurious.
Lay(er) It on Me: Get your layer on and pull your sweatshirt over a longer, collared blouse. Complete the style with rolled black denim and your go-to shoes, and you've proven that comfortable can be oh-so-chic.
So Tucked: Sleek calf boots, red sailor pants, and '70s-inspired sunnies are all you need to transition your statement sweatshirt from day to night and keep the party going — and don’t forget that tiny tuck.
Fancy Flair: Who says you can't pair your statement sweatshirt with some flashy stilettos? No one, that's who! Round out your look with a headscarf or bright hat, your fave denim, and *all* the gold jewelry.
Beige Bombshell: Keep it casual with this simple yet sleek cool-girl coupling. Pair your essential new cotton pullover with white jeans and black mules for the perfect everyday outfit.
The Right Angle: There's nothing like a minimalist, monochromatic skirt paired with heeled sandals and geometric shades to take your sweatshirt-inspired outfit to a solid 10.
Cuffing Season: Rock relaxed jeans and low heels with a sweatshirt over your turtleneck for that art gallery, boho-fab look.
A Little Romantic: A bright asymmetrical skirt and black lace-up shoes are pretty good on their own — but when you add that statement crew neck, you've got trendy magic.
