You know that feeling after a long day of work? When you slip off your heels, pull on your favorite sweatshirt and sink into the couch? Well, what if you could feel like that all the time and look fabulous while you’re doing it? Here, nine super-chic ways to rock a cotton crew-neck in the daylight.
WITH A BLAZER, WHITE TEE AND JEANS
Yes, you can wear a sweatshirt to work. Keep it business casual with a knit top underneath (the ultimate button-down illusion) and polished blazer on top... It’s sorta like your pullover sweater but with a little edge.
WITH A DUSTER COAT, BUTTON-DOWN, LEGGINGS AND SNEAKERS
Layering 101: Draping a duster coat over a graphic crewneck and button-down equals total badass. Plus, a longer shirt underneath means you can totally get away with the whole “leggings-as-pants” look.
WITH SKINNY JEANS AND HEELS
Who said sweatshirts can’t be sexy? A pastel hue—paired with heeled slingbacks and your favorite denim—says you’re sorta trying but also totally playing it cool.
WITH A LEATHER SKIRT AND TIGHTS
Play up your graphic sweatshirt with a miniskirt and heels for a girls'-night-out ensemble that's both comfy and stylish. Just be sure to keep colors and patterns to a minimum to avoid looking a little too hokey.
WITH LEATHER LEGGINGS AND HIGH-TOPS
Reminder: Bookmark for your next airport rendezvous. Balance a baggy sweatshirt on top with leather skinnies down below to keep from skewing too “snowman.”
WITH A MIDI SKIRT, CHUNKY HEELS AND A CLUTCH
For dressier occasions, tuck your topper into a pleated skirt. Then, rolled sleeves, a fold-over clutch and lace-up heels are the finishing touches to your Sunday-brunch ensemble.
WITH WHITE DENIM AND BLACK HEELS
Elevate any crewneck by keeping things simple and elegant on bottom. We love the contrast of a pair of white skinnies and matte-black heels.
WITH A PENCIL SKIRT AND HEELS
Not all sweatshirts are created equal, however. Velvet or sequin embellishments mean you can really kick things up a notch. Try balancing out a bulkier number with a fitted pencil skirt for the ultimate office-to-happy-hour uniform.
WITH DARK JEANS AND SLIDE LOAFERS
Regardless of whether it’s a food baby or—ya know—a real baby, pair your crewneck with dark denim and your most comfortable flat mules to channel all the loungey vibes. Oh, and rejoice in the fact that you could (and should!) rock a sweatshirt for the rest of your life...and look damn good doing it.
