outfit brainstorm: the sweatshirt

Anne and Jenn are hosting their #momstyleremix link-up again, and this month’s theme is sweatshirts. The trouble is, I really don’t have any sweatshirt outfits to share with you! I used this as an opportunity to brainstorm a few outfit ideas with the sweatshirts I have in my closet.

the embellished sweatshirt

I really like this sweatshirt due to its built-in jewelry–gotta love pieces that streamline getting dressed! I wore an outfit similar to this one a few months ago, but I like this version better–I think the collared shirt underneath makes it a bit more polished.

I also tried to think up a way to wear this sweatshirt into spring. I stuck with black skinnies here, but I’m also thinking it might be fun to try this top with white jeans too.

the short-sleeved sweatshirt

I bought this short-sleeved sweatshirt last fall as a last-minute, super cheap ($3!) addition to my maternity wardrobe. I mostly just wore it as a comfy top around the house during my last trimester, but now I’m trying to make it work as a regular top. I’ve already worn it several times as pictured below, with olive chinos and booties.

Because it’s short-sleeved, I feel like it might be a good transition piece for spring too. I’m picturing it with coral jeans and my new tortoise shell sunglasses. Maybe some gold jewelry too!

the striped sweatshirt

This top is not quite as heavy as a sweatshirt, but too thick to be a tee, so I’m lumping it into the former category. Stripes are pretty easy to style, but the addition of the lace embellishment has kinda thrown me for a loop in terms of styling this piece. I’m thinking it would look nice layered underneath a utility jacket.

Once it warms up a bit, I think this top could easily be tucked in (or not?) with my flippy navy skirt.

So now I guess I have no excuse not to wear my sweatshirts–I’ve got six outfits already planned!

How would you wear a sweatshirt for spring?

  1. Ooooh I love all of these! I haven’t tried the short-sleeved sweatshirt thing, but how fun for spring/summer. And the embellished one is so great – very chic with the blouse and leopard flats, and I like how simple but snazzy it is with black jeans and red flats. I’d wear that! đŸ™‚


  2. I love the first outfit, and totally agree – the collared shirt definitely takes it up a notch. You could probably even put a collared shirt under the white sweatshirt too!
