Loving: Sweatshirts and Skirts

Wearing a sweatshirt with a dressier skirt is one of those artfully casual-but-not-really looks, that appeal to me. A throw-on outfit that manages to be both pulled-together and down-to-earth at the same time. It elevates the sweatshirt out of its weekend rotation and is a nice option for cool days and nights. Check out how these beautiful bloggers have styled their sweatshirt + skirt combos. And it seems to me that this outfit  works for many ages and body types.

Do you think this works for older women as well or is it better on the under 40 crowd? Being 40+ myself, I’m always curious to hear what you think. Are cozy sweatshirts ready for prime time?

  1. I remember a youngish Chloe Seveny doing it what a decade ago? It seems so fresh still, as long as the sweatshirt is clean and tidy. It’s a great look- let’s face it, casual is what is modern for today- jeans, Tees, and Sweatshirts.

  2. I love it. Casual chic, a look I know you could pull off easily, Laura!

    For us oldies, it kind of depends on how tailored the sweatshirt is I think. If it’s very plain and not too bulky, I think it would look amazing. I’ve got to try it. Sometimes I get bored with sweaters and this would be a nice new look. Elaine

  4. Well, I’ve never thought about a sweatshirt being anything other than something I throw on when I get home. Looks comfy & chic on those bloggers….hmmm….I’m thinking…. ;)

  5. I love my grey sweatshirt from Zara, I wear it with everything. It’s a great backdrop for a fun statement necklace.
