Don't Sweat it!!!

Ok so I will admit it when it gets cold and my alarm is going off I always lay in my cozy, warm bed debating about wearing a warm sweatshirt or getting dressed in warm layers. I know that a sweatshirt is super easy and usually thought to be slouchy. Well good news!!! Sweatshirts can now be super chic when worn correctly!!!

 Wrong way to wear a sweatshirt:
* Don't wear your sweatshirt too baggy (unless it is a sweatshirt dress)
*Do not ever pair your sweatshirt with sweat pants unless you are in your bed and it is 40 degrees. You will look super frumpy and this look is always featured on What not to Wear. Plus 9 chances out of 10 you will see everyone as soon as you walk out of the house so save yourself from inevitable embarrassment.
*Do not wear your sweatshirt to formal occasions (it isn't that chic of a style)

Right way to wear a sweatshirt:
*Do wear a cute fitted sweatshirt with feminine details like lace, bows, sequins etc on them.
*Do remain balanced by wearing a sweatshirt with skinny jeans, boots, skirts, leggings...
* Do make sure to wear at least a bra underneath (trust me I do know people who walk out of the house and skip this step... this will make you look frumpy)
* Do accessorize your sweatshirt. A sweatshirt in my opinion is sporty so balance that out with something chic.
*For sure try a sweatshirt dress on with cute tights and boots don't forget to top off with a necklace and you will look like a winner!!!

TADA those are my go to rules for how I can get away with stepping out of the house with a sweatshirt on. I also like to wear a polished ponytail as opposed to a messy bun. I try to make my look intentional rather than lazy and poof it works every time!!!


  1. Oh my so much to love here! The sequins, the colour block shoes and oh those boots! Yes these are the ways to wear a sweatshirt!


  2. I have this amazing Ralph Lauren navy sweatshirt with gold zippers where the pouch is! You have completely inspired me to wear it today.
