How to Wear a Crewneck Sweatshirt Three Ways

The sporty staple with a stylish revamp

Guys – I wore a sweater yesterday.

Actually, it was a sweatshirt.

It wasn’t the high school sports warm up staple we’ve all come to know and love and reserve for weekends spent on the couch, but rather a chic, tailored number that I layered over a button up with some jodhpurs. And you know what? It looked pretty great – especially considering this cozy item’s close association with sloppy college kids and lawn-mowing dads in ’90s tv shows.

But thanks to a fabric upgrade and some extra detailing – and society’s continually increasing acceptance of more casual dress codes – the crewneck sweatshirt has potential to replace your sweater weather namesake.

Don’t get it twisted, though. We still love a sweater.
