Sweatshirts are undeniably a perennial piece. They come and go in fashion, but they’re kind of a classic.
Sure, slogans and logos age anything but you’re never going to ditch a grey marl sweat and that’s the kind of investment we like.
They are a good base, if you’re a wow dresser like Suzie Bubble, to wear with uber-statement maxis or trousers. But if you’re a bit more normcore, they’re the jumper equivalent of a white t-shirt or breton. Wear with jeans and a white trainer for the simplest kind of throw-on-and-go look, all year round.
They’re also a good totally-together-on-Saturday morning piece. Ideal for warding off any hint of a hangover, wear a sporty sweatshirt — like an Adidas Originals logo design — with leggings and no one will suspect you aren’t feeling 100% fresh.
Our favourites at the moment are the Acne in this season’s cool pink — more grown-up than the teeny bopper bubblegum shade — and Vetements over-sized sleeve sweatshirt.
