I’ve developed a bit of a thing for sweatshirts, of late. It started off when I bought a grey one from Marks and Spencer, on impulse, back in November. And then last month I picked up a floral embossed black sweatshirt (and a burgundy one) from New Look (well, they were a tenner each! How could I say no?). Then last week, I bought a white sweatshirt in the Mint Velvet sale – it was half price, and calling out to me from the sale rack.
Since then, I’ve found myself wandering casually into Topshop to look at their sweatshirts and looking on My Wardrobe at some pretty expensive ones. Oh and pinning a lot of them on Pinterest. The thing is, they’re so blooming versatile. My favourite way to wear a sweatshirt is with a statement necklace, skinny jeans and my new black leather Ash trainers. When I get to work, I can swap my trainers for heels and the look still works. If I had better legs, I’d rock the sweatshirt and leather skinnies look (I’d have to be careful not to end up in a lotion/talc mess like Ross from Friends).
