Hello my loves! How are y'all doing? The last week's been pretty crazy, I had my li'l cousins over and I was their personal tourist guide, taking them around and showing them all of Lucknow. But, it was fun 'coz I was kinda reliving my childhood! Well, now that they've all gone back, I'm back to writing my blogs, like I promised this year will be better than the last. I have for you...this very refreshing post with H&M today. Oh yes, I finally have the brand up in my cloud and I couldn't be happier!
Though the winter season has almost come to an end, but what's better than sharing a closure with some sweatshirt styles that I rocked unapologetically in the last 2 months. Below I've shared with you the hoodie styles that you can fashionably mix and match with different pieces to create something that suits your needs! I never thought I could go that west but it did happen. Scroll down for the looks..
Casual, comfortable and snuggly. These are every girl’s definition of a sweatshirt. The classic combo of a white hoodie on a blue denim is never going out of fashion, and I chose to throw up my very sporty looking white sweat on a pair of spunky blue shorts, and touch up the look with a red hat to hint some swag. My new sport shoes in black & white did all justice to the look, and of course a lot of you are aware that I've started following a fitness regime so you'll never find me without my apple watch. That's a series 4!
You can very easily go out for a run in this look, or just casually for a winter brunch. Trust me, it's super comfy & swaggy to carry!
Okay, so before I even begin expressing how much I loved putting this look together, let me just say I felt like I'm walking the NYFW. The colors are perfectly coordinated, and the black sweatshirt with the New York monogram on the front is super sassy. I added it over a long, sky blue, pleated skirt of which I wore the back side in front. Yes, the slit is supposed to be at the back but I pulled it to the front, and it did turn out to be a thing, so why not! Added my thigh high boots to give the look a fancy edge, and save myself from the chill under a super flairy skirt!
This look is a very refreshing combination in the winters and can be a head turner at events. You can don it at a lunch or a dinner party! The hoodie on the sweatshirt will save you from the chilly evenings.
Hoodie sweatshirts are the most humble pieces in our wardrobes. But, sometimes sweatshirts are more than a lazy day outfit. The trick to convert your boring sweatshirt and jeans look is very simple - add Heels. A basic pair of skinfit jeans in a dark, bold color paired with my favorite grey taupe sweatshirt from H&M's NASA collection was my easiest OOTD, everyday, especially when I'm meeting different people. I just threw in a matching pair of knotted heels in brown suede with the outfit, added metallic accessories and a brown wrist watch and I was good to go!
Morning to noon to evening to late night, I can forever live in this attire.
Sweatshirts have long been associated with sporty types but have evolved into a versatile wardrobe necessity; and they're not just designed for keeping us warm and toasty on cool wintry nights. We can pair it with high heels or sneakers, formal blazers or coats, statement earrings, and anything in between, it will always add the perfect contrast to your dressed up outfit.
As for my last look, I did the same. Added the element of elegance! I wore a below-the-knee length dress (which I generally don't 'coz I don't really know what to add over it, it's all noodle strap and I kinda fear showing off my heavy arms). Wearing dresses in winters is always a task, but layering it with a crop sweatshirt was a good idea. I topped the black dress with my most favorite sweat piece ever. It's a crop from H&M's 2018 collection and has "chase the rainbow" embroidered over it on the left, also has a front, high-neck zip, making the look interesting! To finish off, I wore a pair of silver hoops (matching with the zipper hoop) in my ears, and went bold with my red footwear - the snake print edition.
This look is strictly for the weekend parties. You're sure gonna get applauds for this one!
By now we all know sweatshirts are the most comfortable & practical item in our wardrobe and this fashion-forward piece is here to stay! I hope you liked reading the post, and checking out the pictures! Do let me know which one's your favorite look out of the 4 above; and which one would you actually like to don, maybe for the next winters?!
