1 Sweatshirt - 4 Ways


Next up in the series is a casual classic - the sweatshirt, but with a modern twist. The sweatshirt has fast become a staple in lots of daily uniforms (including mine) over lockdown. Easy to throw on with jeans or leggings and a nice alternative to the traditional knit but I wanted to show how to style a sweatshirt not only now but also outside of the house....ready for when we go out for more than a food shop!

All pieces featured are from Mint Velvet - I am trying to stay inspired and ready to style up my ladies once stores reopen.

Outfit One 

Sweatshirt used in all looks - Lilac Ribbed Sweatshirt

Light Grey Boyfriend Coat, Ohio Jeggings & Ezra Suede Boots

First up is an smarter way to wear the sweatshirt, which is typically a casual item of clothing. For this look I have teamed a classic black skinny jegging, with slouchy suede ankle boots and a tailored boyfriend mid length coat, smart but chic. Keeping the look simple elevates the sweatshirt and the slouchy boots adds some texture and refinement without going too "office". This sweatshirt also has a funnel neck detail meaning it will sit perfectly under the lapels of the coat.

Outfit Two

Knitted Joggers, Faux Fur Slippers & Lavender & Geranium Candle

Now this is a much more traditional outfit, but ideal for lockdown. Teaming the sweatshirt with a classic pair of cosy knitted joggers and some stylish slippers - chic loungewear. If you wanted to elevate this look for going out & about, you could switch out the knitted style for the faux leather joggers. I have included a fancy candle in this outfit as this look is ideal for chill days, plus these candles smell amazing.

Outfit Three

Poppy Tiered Mini Dress, Disk Earrings & Allie Padded Trainers

My favourite outfit - something a little more unexpected and playful, layering the lilac sweatshirt over the beautiful purple Poppy print mini dress. The crop of the sweatshirt shows off the cute flippy hem of the dress whilst adding a layer of warmth. Styled up with trainers, keeps this easy and casual, cute for a day shopping or out with the girls. Going tonal with lilac on lilac is a great way to add colour to an outfit without going too crazy, ideal for those who are a little afraid of colour. I have this dress in two other prints and it is a great everyday dress, ideal if you want to be comfy but still look like you've made an effort.

Outfit Four

This outfit updates one of my favourite looks of the year, taking a classic white shirt, skinny jeans combination and adding the sweatshirt on top - love having the tail of the shirt hanging out the bottom. Teamed with a chunky biker boot adds a cool edge and dresses down the more formal white shirt. I have gone with grey jeans here as I love lilac & grey together, less harsh than black especially with a white shirt.

Worth noting, this sweatshirt is also available in white ♡ White Sweatshirt
