Embracing the casual...

...seeing as it's here to stay for the time being at least.  The mood of the nation is heading into (being forced into?!) relaxed mode.  And what better way to celebrate not being able to go out with the purchase of something we will be able to wear day in and day out - the sweatshirt.  

So this isn't really a reinvention as such, more of a rediscovery and an easy segue from pure slobbism into something we can wear every day.  With a slight rejig of an outfit (ie maybe don't wear with tracksuit trousers that you wore when you were pregnant with your 12 yr old - just me?) suddenly these can be your go to dress down top to wear with jeans, wide leg trousers, maxi or midi skirts - you name it, you can wear it.  Throw on an oversized coat or a blazer for a slightly smarter look. 

I haven't gone down the hoody route - seeing as this is something for which there are a LOT of options, I'll do a WHOLE hoody one on its own.  Purely selfish of course, as if I look back at my wardrobe - these are one of the items that have lasted the test of time.  From throwing on over your jamas to do the school run, to grabbing to go to the gym, to wearing over leather leggings and a smarter jacket for... well - will we be allowed to leave the house by the end of the week?  If so, this is what you can be wearing.

Starting with a black and white theme - possibly the easiest way to start if you're not a fan of the larger logo.  These will fit in perfectly with all your neutral wardrobe favourites.

Black Phoenix Arizona Logo Sweatshirt from New Look £17.99

Deliciously perfect and in the sale from Moschino at ASOS.

Love Moschino Sweatshirt was £160 now £95

One of my favourites from Whistles.

And a grey version - ideal for winter whites or with blacks... perfect with navy too.

Grey again with an embroidered motif in gold at H&M

Grey Mon Amour Sweatshirt from New Look was £16.99 now £8

I shouldn't love this one as much as I do and it's white would be a disaster for me as I am so messy and can't drink a cup of coffee without wearing half of it. BUT a high neck polo neck... oh.. hello...

Levi's High Neck Gardenia Sweatshirt from Urban Outfitters £75

Dark charcoal grey.

ASOS DESIGN ACDC print in charcoal £28

Grey.. now please don't panic about the cropped aspect.. it's actually pretty perfect with high waisted jeans.  NO MIDRIFF ON SHOW! 

Hollister graphic sweatshirt from ASOS £29

Levi's Peanuts Crew Neck Sweatshirt £60

And in yellow - again £60. I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS!

Red is definitely one of my favourite colours for a top.

Claudie Pierlot Relaxed Fit Jersey Top £81

Red Chicago 98 Sweatshirt from New Look £17.99

LOVE this one from Whistles. 

Oversized now and actually my absolute favourite one that I've had for years is from Missguided.  Don't laugh.  I know... BUT it's such a good sweatshirt that I've had for about 4yrs and haven't found a huge one as good.  This is what's on offer for this season. 

Fabulously oversized at H&M. 

And a Rolling Stones one - also at H&M.

So so so many options but fear not, if a logo sweatshirt isn't for you, I have other winter warmer options coming soon.  Plain knits and their antithesis, the fairisle - all the print you could ever want in a jumper.  Not to mention bottoms to wear with them...

  5. Good News Everyone!! I'm happy my life is back, What a wonderful and simple spell thrower who brought joy and happiness back into my life! I give this testimony because I am so happy, I never believed in spell throwers until my life collapsed when my 8 year relationship lover decided to quit when we wanted to get married. I was so emotionally devastated that I couldn't do anything reasonable, after 3 months of pain before an old friend of mine introduced me to an online spell thrower called Dr. Ogala, I told him all that has happened and he assured me not to worry that everything will be fine. My God after 3 days I saw wonders, My love texted me pleading he wanted me back my life came back like a completed puzzle, Dr Ogala didn't just bring back my Ex he also made me a happily married mother, it was like a dream because I thought I'd lost it forever. I will recommend anyone who ( NEED ANY HELP ) to reach him. email: Drogalad02@gmail.com  WhatsApp or call at +2347049668119! You Desever To Be Happy.
