Last fall was a major turning point for the sweatshirt. It wasn’t just something to keep you warm or hide a food baby anymore. Street stylers started wearing them in a more dressed-up way, and they even popped up on the fall 2013 runways thanks to designers like Rebecca Minkoff, Milly and Tibi. But the one underlying thing all of these sweatshirts had is a crew neck. Well, were here to tell you that you should start adding some hoodies to your sweatshirt repertoire, because they’re going to be the next big thing. Come on, how cool do these girls look in the pictures above? And they’re not all wannabe Sporty Spices (like the pun there?), check out that hoodie over a lace dress over a plaid collared shirt. Talk about an unexpected yet amazing combo.
It’s all about how you wear it. Just picture a grey cropped hoodie with a pair of skinny jeans and sneakers, or try a burnout one tucked into a skirt with booties. Yeah you’ll look more casual than the person wearing a dress and heels, but at least your outfit will be more exciting. Click the slideshow to shop the hoodie sweatshirt trend for fall. We promise, these won’t make you look like you’re going to the gym.
