Sweatshirt: A comfortable garment to a street style essentials

Sweatshirt: A comfortable garment to a street style essentials

One of the garments that most encompasses comfort is undoubtedly the sweatshirt, previously a piece that was considered informal or exclusive to athletes has managed to open the way and hand in hand with current trends, has earned a place in the street style. 

The origin of the sweatshirt dates back to the 19th century in France, where it was designed as a uniform for vegetable sellers. From there, the term Chándal would arise, referring to the garlic merchant, marchand d'ail.



In 1926, thanks to Benjamin Russell, it would become a garment designed for soccer players, as his son, who played this sport at the University of Alabama, complained that the wool sweaters were uncomfortable, but by changing them for soft cotton, the design was so successful that they began to be marketed throughout the country. The hooded silhouette did not arrive until a few years later, thanks to Champion. 

In addition to being a sports icon, the hoodie was also adopted by urban culture, with hip-hop and breakdance fans wearing it as a significant part of their wardrobe. 

One of the first personalities to experiment with less casual looks with the sweatshirt was Princess Diana, wearing it with a blazer and cowboy boots. 

The jump to street style, after considering it an impossible piece to be stylized, came proposals such as Athleisure, which invited us to make combinations with opposite garments, today we can find sweatshirts with different designs to those we were used to seeing, balancing the comfort it still provides but with style. 


Stylish Sweatshirt combinations

If you're still wondering how to style a sweatshirt in a non-sporty look, we'll share with you some ideas of combinations you can create with it and splurge on style.

As a second garment in layered outfits: Wear your sweatshirt over a white shirt and add a leather jacket, sartorial wide-leg pants and loafers. You create a perfect balance. 

Replace the basic t-shirt with a sweatshirt: Create an outfit with this piece and a midi skirt, the extra will be to add a blazer, ankle boots, you will look chic. 



How a dress and boots: One of the celebrities who showed us how this outfit works is Ariana Grande, who has worn it with over-the-knee boots. Add a trendy bag, and you are ready for street style.

Pop of color: We suggest adding a vibrant colored sweatshirt to your neutral-toned ensembles, or if you're a risk-taker, wear an almost monochromatic look in one and contrast the color of the hoodie with another.

As we have observed, the sweatshirt is one of the essential comfortable garments in our closet.
