5 Days, 5 Ways: The Short Sleeve Sweatshirt
I think we can all agree the best part about cold weather is the social acceptability of being able to bundle up in your favorite sweatpants because it’s too cold to function otherwise, right? Thankfully, that comfort is no longer reserved for sub 50 degree weather.
Enter, the short sleeve sweatshirt. A hybrid of an oversized tee and your favorite crewneck sweatshirt, the short sleeve sweatshirt offers an array of layering options for warm weather. Is it a sweatshirt? Is it a tee? Wear it literally however you want to wear it. The style below is meant to be a bit oversized, but you can size down for a slimmer fit.
