When it comes to the renowned clothing item that is the sweatshirt, the sky is the limit. There are so many options and ways to style it that the possibilities are close to endless. This vast versatility can make choosing a sweatshirt, and choosing how to wear it, a bit daunting. So with that in mind, let’s check out how to go about picking out your sweatshirt, how to wear it and what to pair it with.
Zipped or pullover
First things first, you have to decide what kind of sweatshirt suits you best. The two major kinds are the zipped sweatshirt or the pullover. Zipped is a great opportunity for when the weather is a little warmer as you can wear it unzipped or take it off completely if it gets too hot. It can be worn more smartly than the pullover too. The pullover is more spacious and tends to favour comfort over sophistication. If you’re looking for an option that allows for both, you can get both zipped and pullover options from mens Barbour sweatshirts including the pullover Barbour International large logo sweater in navy and the zipped option, the Barbour International Essential 1/2 zip sweater in black.
Classic or bold
Once you decide what kind of sweatshirt you want, it’s time to choose what style of sweatshirt you want. For a classical look, opt for a plain sweatshirt with one particular colour. This kind is great for lounging or for a cool and casual look. You can also go for a slightly bolder choice such as choosing a sweatshirt with bright colours or patterns. Logos are also a fun way to mix up a sweatshirt, such as the mens Barbour sweatshirts which have both subtle and bold logo variations.
The short sleeved sweatshirt
When the weather gets warmer, a short sleeved sweatshirt is also an option to help beat the heat whilst keeping that nonchalant, casual look.
The smart sweatshirt
You can also easily rock a smarter look with a sweatshirt too, depending on how you choose to style it. Wear a plain sweatshirt over a collared shirt with jeans or chinos for some added elegance.
