The sweatshirt has traditionally been socially restricted to a handful of occasions. If it didn’t involve hitting the gym, making a quick run to the grocery store or lazying it up at home, you’d never even consider a sweatshirt when putting together an attire for a more socially appropriate setting.
Recently, however, the story’s been flipped. Sweatshirts aren’t just designed for prizefighting boxers or husbands with leaf-raking chores. Casual and luxury brands have taken the garment and transformed them into mature pieces made perfect for a variety of occasions you’d have never considered in the past. From running morning errands to hosting a dinner party – and everything else in-between – this new wave of sweatshirts have become must-have wardrobe essentials.
Here are a few looks to get you inspired on how to incorporate the sweatshirt into your daily routine.
