The fashion world has been having a love affair with all things comfy , from track pants to sweatshirts. Givenchy slapped on a Bambi design on this winter’s sweatshirt and Kenzo made a huge comeback after years of hibernation with their tiger print motif.
From our end we’ve been having a fling with varsity sweatshirts the kind that you wear at your university’s sorority and that we grew up with as teenagers.
We didn’t go for luxe or expensive , but plain and accessible Topshop and Zara. We found that the varsity sweatshirt works just as well with a silk skirt by DVF and lace up ballerinas by hot shoe label Aquazzura , as much as it lends a cool Americana twist to a denim shirt and skort (which is a cross between shorts and a skirt to keep your modesty in check).
The common point between these 2 outfits? Cool and practical satchels in shades of indigo blue (PS1 by Proenza Schouler) or neon pink ( Marc by Marc Jacobs) which is making a huge comeback this spring.
