Sweatshirt season is in. Glam takes a hint from the 80’s with slouchy silhouettes and sporty motifs. These looks have been a part of high fashion ever since the invention of the dolman sleeve, and have been reinvented anew numerous times over the past few decades. This time around, sweatshirts play the part of casual luxe.
Soft, stylish, and screen-printed, the sweatshirt trend has resurfaced from the repertoire of fashion history. Paradise is emulated on many a sweatshirt for Spring. Masha Reva x SNDCT wows again with botanical bliss. Feathers are common, as seen in Alexander Arutyunov’s peacock work; LES’ by Lesya Paramonova features tropical birds as well. These looks pair perfectly back to a pair of summer shorts or a mini skirt.
In other themes, abstract artwork is important. It gives the sweatshirt an element of sophistication. Take a look at It’s Me by Dina Linnik: this style is fresh and edgy. Pair with a white skinny jean, and it’s perfection. When worn with a leather pencil skirt, as styled by BEssARION, even a sweatshirt can be sexy. Who knew? Keep bottoms sharp and tailored, and you’ve got a killer combination. Don’t take ‘em to the gym, these sweatshirts were made for the streets!Mollie Rifkin finds energy in fashion and art, and understood her calling at a young age.
