Yay or Nay? The Statement Sweatshirt

In Fashion, Outfit of the day, Trends 2013, Uncategorized by Testing Purpose42 Comments

If you haven’t already noticed, the good old sweatshirt has undergone a major makeover. A luxe makeover to be exact! I have to admit, when I first saw this trend last year, I wasn’t quite sold on it. For me, sweatshirts were that oversized piece of clothing that I wore to the gym, at the cottage or at home on cold winter nights. But that was then…
Gone is that tired old cotton sweatshirt, I’m looking at you Hanes! Yup, these babies are full on high Fashion…Everything from luxe fabrics like leather, fur or jacquard…
To funky details like python patterns, graphic prints, sequins, lace, zippers, peplum, cut outs etc… I could go on here but lets just say this isn’t your old lazy gym sweatshirt.

  1. Definitely a yay! I love all these fancy sweatshirts that are coming out – I noticed Target just came out with one with jewels on it. Very different but so fun.

  2. I think the glammed up sweater thing is fantastic! I really love the ones with the beautiful textured fabrics and the jewels! Your sweater is super cute and so fun and warm for fall! Can’t wait to see other ones you add to your closet!


  3. Hi jackie!

    Thank you so much for your comment! 😉

    Your scored on PhillipLim for Target! Awesome purchase! Your look so gorgeous!

    I love all of these sweatshirt choices! Embellishments are really on trend this season, as well as graphics. A sweatshirt with leather + embellishments would be a serious dream for me!

    GREAT post! 🙂

  4. It seems statement sweatshirts are all the rage now doesn’t it?! I noticed it first with the Phillip lim sweat shirt you have on which I liked but never got. I like how you paired yours with the black bottoms. I’ve never been into sweat shirts but some of these are making me consider it:)

  5. The sweatshirt is definitely a fab fall fashion trend and that sweater really does look ‘BOOM’ on you, so much so, I’m now following you on Bloglovin’. I’m also wearing a sweater in my new outfit blog post, I guess its statement sweaters all round.

  6. I LOVE statement sweaters. I think they are a fun way to add some chic to a basic layered outfit.

    Personally, I’m lusting after the Helmut sweater with leather inserts.

    I wish I could have found that 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target sweater near me — but they were all sold out. It looks AMAZE on you and absolutely fantastic with those leather leggings!


  7. Super love this one on you. I wish I have your long legs, lol………… The sweater choices are fabulous. Makes me want to get one now with sparkle. I been eyeing that creme dela creame for awhile now.
