The Funky Sweatshirt

I love Sundays, simply because I love to go down to my (now I can finally say it) local and pick up the Sunday Times. I’m ne’er a foot in the door and I rip the plastic insert to shreds to reveal that all important ‘Style’ magazine.

Flossie Saunder’s Sunday fashion tips decorate my day. She recently did an interesting article on the comeback of the casual statement sweatshirt. I’m not quite convinced how great I look in them, however it does make me appreciate a good sweater, especially oversized.

I am trying to wean myself off oversized tops but I’m finding it hard to breakaway. Perhaps the funky sweaters in this blog might convince me. I plucked them from Polyvore. Here are a few of my favourites.

Slap on a pair of your favourite comfortable jeans. Let’s go with a pair of high-waisted baggy ones. I’m thinking Jackie from That 70’s show or  casual Abby Ewing from Knots Landing. Messy hair bun, funky new sweater and a pair of aviators. I think we’re in business.

Here is my favourite pick. What a cute little gem, and for a fine price tag of €15 from pinkqueen.com I absolutely adore this mustard color. Pair with skinny jeans, high heel ankle boot and oversized tote. A shiny million dollars you will look.
