*these photos were clearly taken on a windy day. see my hair?*
Have you ever seen people wearing a trend and you wondered if you could pull it off? Well, that’s exactly how I felt about seeing people wear sweatshirts in a chic way. I don’t even wear sweats when I work out {I’m a tank top or zip up hoodie and yoga pants type of girl}, so I couldn’t figure out a way to wear one without looking like a slob.
One of the great things about thrift shopping is you can try new trends at a low cost. While at the Salvation Army on 46th St., I picked up a basic Hanes sweatshirt for $1.50.
On its own it would look a bit blah, but with the help of some accessories and layering, I created a look I’d rock for a night out.
Thanks to a denim top and leather vest, the normally boring sweatshirt gets a fun update.
My accessories were limited to gold clip ons {see above}, bangles and a python clutch I stole borrowed from my cousin.
I know some people hate the black and blue combo, but it’s one I love, so I stepped in to my G by Guess glitter booties. They’re a great cheap chic alternative to the Miu Miu pumps.
Sweatshirt {thrifted}, Vest {NY & Co.}, Denim shirt {thrifted}, Jeans {Forever 21}, Booties {Guess c/o TJ Maxx}, Bangles and Earrings {accessories swap}, Clutch {borrowed from my fabulous cousin}
I would have never worn a sweatshirt outside of a lazy afternoon in the house, but I’m glad I tried something different.
And while I was at the new Housing Works Buy the Bag shop, I found a Mickey Mouse sweatshirt, which I can’t wait to style.
