Novelty sweatshirts are making a comeback and they aren’t just for schlepping around anymore. If you cringe at the thought of wearing a sweatshirt for a glam occasion, you shouldn’t! Dress up your favorite pair of denim with a cute, oversized, vintage hoodie or pair your slogan Kenzo sweatshirt with a hot little mini skirt for perusing around town. Sweatshirts aren’t just for working out anymore — they are fashion forward go-to’s and perfect as we head into the cooler months. Stylish, functional, and comfy? We have a winner!
One celebrity who seems to have mastered this trend is 24-year-old “We Found Love” singer, Rihanna, who has been spotted in fancy sweatshirts from London to Los Angeles. The songstress sported a red, cannabis-printed sweatshirt as she landed in London on August 27th, pairing the top with a high-slit maxi skirt, her custom-made Gucci bag, and converse sneaks — representing the perfect high-low combo.
The Grammy Award winner donned a black Trapstar hoodie over a tight leather burgundy mini skirt and Tom Ford over-the-knee anaconda boots as she departed her vehicle. While grabbing a bite to eat at one of her fave hot spots in Santa Monica, CA — Giorgio Baldi — Rihanna chose a more casual look, pairing a limited edition Adidas Originals by Jeremy Scott “Shoe Memory” oversized sweatshirt with funky Adidas x Jeremy Scott leopard kicks and a pink, Joyrich Cash Flow Dollar Sign Hat. #Badass! A few nights ago, dining at Emilio Ballato, Rihanna paired Pushbutton’s “Original” black and gold cropped novelty sweatshirt with black skinny jeans.
Rihanna was spotted last month in Acne’s “College Heart” sweatshirt, coordinating the cropped sweatshirt top with a pair of black skinnies and chunky Opening Ceremony by Chloe Sevigny platforms. #Hot! Rihanna mixed cool and sophisticated earlier in the year when she wore TOPSHOP’s “Cleopatra” sweatshirt with a black maxi skirt, two tone heels, and black statement sunglasses.
