I’m clearly having a love affair with all things sweatshirts lately, but I’m sort of crazy about the whole new take on adding sparkle to such an everyday staples. I mean, for those of us who lived through The Bedazzler, we know these things can go HORRIBLY WRONG. I’m glad to see when someone does it right.
I grabbed the spring version of this a while ago in navy, and they’ve decided to issue another version for fall. This one called to me from the windows of J.Crew’s Madison Avenue store yesterday on my way home from the Barneys New York beauty editor breakfast (more about that later.)
Ladies, this is weekend wear on a whole new level. I love the idea of throwing this with any number of jeans (white, dark rinse, wine and red immediately come to mind) with sneaker wedges or ankle boots for a casual look with tons of style. Throw a leather skirt on with it and some heels and suddenly you’re out to dinner. It’s a Swanky Sweatshirt, and it deserves a place in all of our wardrobes.
