In praise of a chic sweatshirt



Today, you can find me over on the FT's How To Spend It blog discussing my penchant for posh sweatshirts. Having previously blogged about the excellent go-anywhere credentials of this multi-tasking fashion item here and here, I'm now spreading the word amongst the business world too. I've thrown in some expert tips on How To Wear It, so do take a look.


And isn't this the 3.1 Phillip Lim number the poshest, ever?

So exiting to read your post at the Financial Times, knowing that its business readership will receive a dose of your excellent writing and wit. And of course your fashion expertise. Congratulations!

I enjoyed that article and love both those sweatshirts. Have to admit to being influenced by your earlier post so that I picked up a grey sequined Gap v-neck version last week. I've got to be careful in choosing a sweatshirt-style top, though, as that lower band can be unfortunate for those of us who are as short-waisted as I am. . .

Chic sweatshirt? I think not. It's an oxymoron if ever there was one, in my books. It's neither one nor the other.

It was nice to see you briefly today in the WB, your 'all grown up' comment scared me, where has the time gone? major panic mode now! Have a wonderful Christmas :)

I've been seeing these upscale sweatshirts a lot lately--I like those cashmere ones. Sometimes the over-pouffy ones are harder to style. Agree with all of your styling tips!

The only thing that stops me wearing one is that the boxy style doesn't suit my shape otherwise I can see that it could be a very versatile garment.

Thanks for all your comments.

Rosemary - it looks like a glammed up sweatshirt to me, and casual glamour can be so elegant! Go on, I can see you in a sequinned version this Christmas.

Jemma - good to see you too. And 'grown-up' is the ultimate complement!

fashionoverfifty - yes, the more streamlined, slinkier styles are best.

X-nay on the fancy sweatshirts. Remind me too much of the Quacker Factory oversized sweaters with decoration on them. Unless you like bling on your jeans stay away from the bling on your sweatshirts.

Jeez Louise, at that price it damn well should be beautiful. (And indeed, it is.)
