If you want to update your image, try adding a new sweatshirt to your wardrobe. This practical and versatile garment can be worn in various ways, so let’s take a look at six stylish options.
Try a leisure approach and pair a light grey utility-style sweatshirt with a matching pair of on-trend joggers and white plimsolls. Layer your sweatshirt with a soft cotton crewneck T-shirt and you will have successfully pulled off a two-tone look.
Double it with denim
If you like to stand out from the crowd, try dressing distressed light denim jeans with a light denim jacket. Wear the jacket casually over one of your Lyle & Scott sweatshirts, keeping the tones pastel and light for vibrant freshness.
With a bomber jacket
Dark denim jeans paired with a crewneck in your favourite colour and a similarly toned bomber jacket will create an easy look you can return to again and again. Throw on a pair of clean baseball trainers for a nice finish.
For those looking for crewneck inspiration, such as Lyle & Scott sweatshirts, retailers such as EJ Menswear have a great selection.
Layer with a three-quarter-length tweed coat
Dark denim, the soft tones of Harris tweed in a three-quarter-length coat and a half zip sweatshirt will keep you warm on the coldest of mornings. Add a pair of dark brown suede brogues with contrasting laces to pick out the colour of your sweatshirt.
With a casual jacket
Keep things simple by pairing a sweatshirt in your favourite colour with a practical utility-style jacket. A blue crew neck sweatshirt layered with a white T-shirt and worn with mid-blue denim jeans and a light tan-coloured jacket will be ideal for a weekend walk.
Invented in the mid-1920s, it wasn’t until the 1960s – when ready-to-wear clothing became widely available – that the sweatshirt gained international popularity.
The reason the sweatshirt is such a popular piece of clothing is because it is truly a versatile and practical garment. You can wear it on its own and layer it, or use it to add blocks of colour to your outfit. There are infinite styles, colours and fitting choices to enable you to make a style your own. Even the type of fabric choice is wider than ever before. Stick to colours that you know complement your skin tone and you will always look your best.
