"...in today's culture, the sweatshirt has become the new silk blouse."
-- Fashion Designer Juan Carlos Obando
I wish I could say that we could just pull all our sweatshirts out of our drawers (or pick them up off the floor :) & voilà! we'd be styling the new silk shirt. If the sweatshirt is indeed the new go-to top for all our tuxedo pants & work skirts, I'm afraid we'll need a new one that doesn't have stains on it & the name of our alma mater across its chest. I'm not positive our old faithfuls won't work, though--I may have to try it!
The boxy shape of a sweatshirt is another problem. I don't look particularly good in a square shape (who does?).
But I can see the versatility of the sweatshirt look--it mutes & brings down the fanciest of fancy pants--in a good way.
Supposedly, Einstein wore a lot of sweatshirts.
He makes them look smart! :-)
Here are a few sweatshirts you may want to look at if you're considering taking on this trend...
Maybe you do already own one like this one?
Will you be making like Einstein & getting yourself a sweatshirt? What do you think of this trend?
