Suddenly, cotton crewneck sweatshirts are back in a big way. Ladies in the know have been rockin’ them with everything from flirty pencil skirts and heels to slouchy harem-like pants and wedge sneakers for the last little while, and if you’re wondering how to cop the look for yourself, this must be said: it’s more than simply dusting off your highschool field hockey team sweatshirt
Amsterdam-based Zoe Karssen, which is actually made up of Zoe and Quince Karssen, is doing sweatshirts right. Their design philosophy is all about putting fun, cheeky, easy-to-wear pieces on cool, casual girls.
The Fun Fun sweatshirt comes on a bright red sweatshirt, which is a blend of 70 percent cotton and 30 percent polyester. The white graphic pops off the chest and the varsity-style font is a throwback to classic collegiate style.
Forget pairing this casual sweatshirt with your favourite jeans or anything else in a similar terry material. The way to bring this look into 2013 is to pair it with something unexpected, almost contrasting, such as workwear staples and party pieces. Throw the sweatshirt over a brocade knee-length pencil skirt or leather skater skirt. Over top, add some statement jewelry and maybe a leopard-print envelope clutch. Sweatshirts are also a great way to wear evening dresses during the day by throwing the sweatshirt over top to instantly dress down the outfit and make it more playful.
The Zoe Karssen Fun Fun sweatshirt is available for $125 at Net-a-Porter.
