Tips to Dress Up A Sweatshirt


Happy Tuesday ladies! Has spring sprung in your neck of the woods yet? Here in Chicago, spring is moving in at a glacial pace. I’ve all but stopped checking the weather because I’m sick of seeing that stupid snowflake on my phone! I’m sure you’re all super excited that I’m talking about the weather yet again, but it’s seriously bringing me down over here!

So until the weather warms up, we’ll just chat about ways to freshen and dress up a sweatshirt. Or in this case my favorite sweatshirt of all time. This slouchy gem is from my go-to destination for sweatshirts and denim. I love the idea that you can take the most basic casual and comfy pieces and glam them up. Here are my tips on how to dress up a sweatshirt:

  1. Play with proportions. Cropped, boxy sweatshirts look amazing with high waisted mom jeans and oversized, off the shoulder styles look great with skinnies.
  2. Elevate. Pumps and strappy sandals take the look from comfy cozy to glam.
  3. Accessorize. Statement necklaces, earrings or a gorgeous bag elevate the look from running errands with the kinds to brunch ready with girlfriends.

And if you’re looking for a more casual spring sweatshirt outfit, be sure to check out this post!

To dupe or not to dupe…

I have long coveted the Gucci Dionysus but just can’t stomach spending upwards of $2,000 on a purse. Ever. And when there are so many designer-inspired or dupes to choose from I’d much rather save my money and still enjoy the trend until it inevitably passes. If you’re like me and love a good dupe, I’ve done all the work for you! Go ahead and scroll through for some of my faves. Happy shopping!
