7 Stylish Ways to Wear a Sweatshirt This Fall

The rumors are true: Sweatshirt season is here, and thanks to the surging mainstream popularity of streetwear these past few years, they're now 100% acceptable to wear beyond the confines of your house. Before you get too comfy with the usual routine of throwing on a hoodie, your favorite pair of jeans, and some sneakers every day, however, here are a few ideas for how to wear a sweatshirt this fall that you may not have tried yet.

After all, while many offices are stepping away from the idea of dress codes, we can't all copy Mark Zuckerberg's wardrobe at work—but pair that hoodie with a tailored blazer and trousers and suddenly you look like a (very cool) boss. On weekends, try swapping out the Nikes for some sleek booties for an enviable day-to-night outfit.
