THE GREY SWEATSHIRT | OUTFIT PERFECTION

10.27.2014

I say here that I had too many grey jumpers which I need to get rid of but this year, I also bought quite a lot of grey sweatshirts and I started doing the same for Mila for two reasons…

First, sweatshirts often have cooler designs than jumpers like this New-York one I got from H&M and they go perfectly with boyfriend jeans or black trousers (see last week’s popular fashion post).
Second, they are easier to care for than woollen jumpers. They don’t pill & they go in the washing machine. I also go for grey marl rather than black because I don’t like how black gets washed out (a bit OCD here).
I’ll make an exception to a cashmere jumper worn on bare skin…let’s face it, no cool sweatshirt can beat that!

I think a plain grey marl sweatshirt is a must/basic. I wear mine with a black suit. Teamed up with a white tee, jeans or black trousers, we/I can look cool without trying too hard + it’s comfy and plus ça va, less I can be bothered with clothes I’m not comfortable with.
If you don’t want to do grey or black, check this old rose sweatshirt from Acne…I love it!

My good-to-go look at the moment when I cycle to work, is pretty much this look: a pair of Energy Boost black Adidas + black trousers rolled up above the ankles + this B&W jumper or a structured grey marl sweatshirt + my oversized coat from Gap and this Zadig & Voltaire shoulder bag.

If you are after a very cool sweatshirt, check out my favourites below:
1/ This Cercle gris sweatshirt by Correll Correll
2 & 3/ The Epic sweatshirt and I’m Here sweatshirt (it’s good to be centered don’t you think!?), both designed by Hugo Guinness for J. Crew
4/ The Lexington sweater that looks super soft
5/ If you work in a formal environment, the Brooke sweatshirt is a great one to own
6/ The M sweatshirt from Mango
7/ I like the Voila très beau sweatshirt but I would have prefered it without the flowers!
8/ and this ABSOLUTELY one :-)
9/ The Sloppy Joe which has a nice wide neck by Hush
10/ and for children, I love the sequins detail on the sunik from Bellrose, this New-York one from Fingers in the Nose and this pretty one with horses.

What about you? Do you wear grey sweatshirts? Do you prefer plain or with something on?

    J’adore! mais bien des liens ne marchent pas ;-(
    Et si je peux me permettre (?!?) – ce serait chouette si les liens pouvaient s’ouvrir dans une autre fenêtre: ce serait plus facile à naviguer.
    En tous cas, merci pour cette belle selection (Le Lexington sweater a l’air génial, mais cher….)
