Personal Style: 5 Ways to Style a Sweatshirt

Jet off into space with me and my fabulous rocket sweatshirt, plus five different ways you can style it, by Rosa Fairfield.

It just hit me, like 5 seconds seconds ago, that the next time I make one of these styling ideas posts, I should really take photos of me wearing all the looks to illustrate my point. TBH, most of the time, I either take outfit pictures and desperately think up something to write about to go with them or I have a really good idea for the words and just stick whatever outfit pictures I've taken with it. I should really work on my storytelling.

Tight fitting skirt or dress
Like I'm doing in these pictures above. TBH, this skirt doesn't really fit that well because I have the old, tiny-waist-large-hips problem. Anyway, you can create so many different vibes with this, from the casual one in my pictures to an office look, with a pencil skirt and heels.

Glam it up
You can make a sweatshirt look uber glam and chic with a pair of skinny jeans and heels. You can add a sparkle with your accessories too, to give it that extra something.

Girly rock
This is one that I really need to try, I was just envisioning it in my head. I'm thinking a tulle skirt, with some fishnet tights and shoes/boots with lots of buckles. Girly punk rock is one of my favourite vibes because it's such a juxtaposition.

Super casual
This is probably the most traditional way to wear a sweatshirt and when I imagine it, I instantly think of some gorgeous cool California girl, wearing one with a cap, shorts and sneakers. If it's winter or snowing, then it's probably best to go for jeans because you know... you don't want to freeze to death.

With a scarf
I love it when people wear a scarf over a sweatshirt, it's something that looks so chic. I'd probably opt for a plain one though and one without a hood.

The hoodie
Now I'm going to talk about my hoodie in the photographs. I knew I had to have this when I saw it because I'm completely obsessed with space and it makes me smile. Okay, I'm mainly obsessed with space because I've watched so many The-X-Files episodes over and over again. I feel like my approach to shopping basically involves me searching for cute novelty items. I also really like the colourful rocket against the grey background, I think it gives off a really nice contrast and makes it stand out.

I always find it kinda hard to write these styling posts because I think personal style is a very visual thing and the best way to see it is through pictures, rather than explaining it through words but it's good to add words to a post because of SEO and everything. Ugh.

Anyway, thanks for reading, please leave a comment bellow and tell me how fab my outfit is... just kidding... but please do leave a comment.
