There's More Than One Way To Wear Your Sweatshirt

It used to be that sweatshirts were reserved for lazy Sundays on the couch, but with the invention of the fashion sweatshirt—thank you, Givenchy and Kenzo—the casual staple is finally seeing the light of day (and black of night, too!). Gisele Bundchen, Jessica Alba, and more show us just how versatile the sporty pullover can be this fall.

    Cara Delevingne

    Delevingne’s high-impact look has plenty of bite, thanks to her shark-print sweatshirt and Sass & Bide To There And Back Jeans ($270).

    Miroslava Duma

    Just like a fancy skirt can take your sweatshirt into after-hours territory, your sweatshirt can just as easily bring a fancy skirt into the realm of daywear. Miroslava Duma demonstrated this fact outside the Chloe S/S 14 show in Paris when she paired Ostwald Helgason’s Baudelaire Sweatshirt ($186) and Striped Shantung A-Line Skirt ($790).

    Lily Collins

    Sans pants, Collins’ Givenchy Bambi-Print Sweatshirt ($1083) doubles as a dress—a.k.a. an unconventional evening look perfect for sartorial daredevils.

    Don’t be afraid to put your playful sensibilities on display. Our advice? Take cues from this stylish civilian and style a cheeky sweatshirt with bold accent pieces, like a stripe skirt and printed baseball cap.

    Jessica Alba

    Of course, you can always go the more sophisticated route a la Alba, who paired a 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target French Terry Sweatshirt ($21) in Boom Print with tailored trousers and Christian Louboutin pointy-toe pumps.

    Joan Smalls

    If you’re seeking that model off duty look, best to refer to runway veteran Joan Smalls. During Paris Fashion Week, the beauty teamed Kenzo’s signature tiger sweatshirt (you can find a similar style here) with a cobalt mini skirt, Stance Indian Burn Socks ($12), and Lanvin patent loafers.

    Ciara

    When the sun goes down, contrast a casual sweatshirt with something seductive on bottom, like a sheer skirt. Ciara did just that at the Givenchy S/S 14 show, pairing the brand’s abstract-print sweatshirt with the silk muslin skirt (both of which are sadly sold out).

    Gisele Bundchen

    You can always play up the fashion sweatshirt’s cool-girl vibe like Gisele Bundchen—photographed here wearing the next generation of Kenzo’s cult favorite sweatshirt, the Eye Embroidered Sweatshirt ($385)—by simply teaming it with distressed denim and leather ankle boots.

    Don’t be fooled by the muted color palette, the blogger’s look, which consists of an ASOS leather baseball hat, print sweatshirt, J Brand front slit jeans, and Alexander Wang heels, is far from understated.
