The graphic sweatshirt was probably one of the most coveted trends from Fall 2013 due in part to the introduction of the über-lux sweatshirts by Parisian fashion label’s Givenchy and Kenzo. What used to be something to wear on a lazy sunday afternoon, quickly became the answer to solving almost any case of “I have nothing to wear.” With a little creativity, this wardrobe staple can be both sophisticated and contagiously cool for any occasion..taking you from work to play with very little effort. Check out our (4) surprisingly chic tips on how you can give a new spin to your favorite graphic sweatshirts right now:
Work It Out
Although a sporty pullover is not something that we’d typically wear to the office, this is definitely a look that you should try to embrace! For example, a sparkly sweatshirt actually goes pretty well with a simple, but brightly colored pencil skirt. Throw on your favorite pair of black pointed-toe pumps, a few sleek accessories and a great handbag to make this look boardroom appropriate.
If you’re a tomboy kind of girl, this second must-try look is definitely for you! Try pairing a graphic sweatshirt with bright skinny jeans and a plaid or polka dot tight-fitting button-up with a nice collar. Add a pair of classic Keds or moccasins, with a tiny bold clutch and a statement necklace to complete this borrowed-from-the-boys look.
Date Night Chic
Combine a printed sweatshirt with your favorite leather skater skirt, and add a few edgy girly accessories like a bow belt, suede heeled sandals and a bright colored shoulder bag for a sexy date night!
Girls Night Out
When I’m in need of a little celeb inspiration, Jessica Alba never disappoints! Jessica looks absolutely fabulous in her Phillip Lim comic strip sweatshirt. I love how she rocked this look for her red carpet appearance too. Jessica paired her graphic top with silk navy blue skinny pants by Lucas Nascimento, a pair of red low island platform Charlotte Olympia heels and a sleek Mulberry shoulder bag. This look is absolutely perfect for a night out on the town with your girls!
As I always like to remind my Nautie girls, fashion is all about expressing yourself and embracing your own unique style. So, be creative and don’t be afraid to have a little fun with it!
