I like sweatshirts and hoodies both as fashion and as gear/ loungewear. I tend to wear them more for very casual situations but occasionally I'll throw a sweatshirt over a skirt for a fun juxtaposition (like a graphic tee with a skirt) and sometimes I'll wear a soft cashmere hoodie under a blazer.
The first four are my current versions. 1 cashmere stripe from Boden (winter), one cashmere/ wool blend from Zella (very pilly, even with attention and care, but too darn useful to let go of yet!), one merino blend one from Icebreaker (mostly gear/ lounge; cross seasonal), and one cotton terry cropped one from J. Crew (more as a winter "tee" or a spring/summer "warmup.")
I have to say my favourite sweatshirt ever was a BR one with sequins I had some years back. It was so much fun!
I would like a new, brighter, spring-like one. Any suggestions for me? I think the bubblebum pink that Angie got from BR is adorable but too warm a pink for me?
