The Statement Sweatshirt






Sweatshirt - Balenciaga
Shirt - Monki
Leather Skirt - ASOS
Fedora - ASOS
Shoes - Zara (similar here)
The statement sweatshirt. Every girl needs one. The new breed of sweatshirt in eye popping colours and luxurious fabrics have taken the fashion world by storm. The sweatshirt revival started when the iconic green tiger embroidered Kenzo sweatshirt was seen on bloggers, stylists and fashion editors at the fashion shows last year. With this iconic sweatshirt being an instant cult hit, designers such as Balenciaga, Marc Jacobs and Givenchy have all recreated their own version of the sport luxe trend. 
A fashion statement in its own right and a cosy one at that, what's not to love?! I have paired my Balenciaga sweatshirt with a staple leather skirt and layered with a simple white shirt. However, the styling options are endless. I cannot wait to pair mine with distressed jeans, leather trousers and a biker jacket when the weather turns colder. The statement sweatshirt is an all rounder that can transform you from office chic to drinks with the girls. Head to Zara and accessorise your sweatshirt with a statement necklace or killer heels, and there you have it, sports luxe in a nut shell. 
Has the statement sweatshirt made an appearance into your capsule wardrobe? Whether you choose to head to the high street or splurge on a designer cult version make sure you have one in your wardrobe for autumn/winter.
