With the weather taking a turn for the worst, it appears we may have seen the last of the British summer time. Booo.
But every cloud has a silver lining and the new cooler weather means there’s whole new wardrobe dilemma to solve, giving us a (new) excuse to go shopping! So, what should we be buying for this weird inbetweeny weather? Since its still way to warm for a coat but not quite warm enough to expose our shoulders to the wind and rain, the perfect answer is to invest in a statement sweatshirt.
Ever since Givenchy’s Rottweiler sweater became THE item to be photographed in, glam sweatshirts have been on the rise. Use them to dress down circle skirts or add edge to a simple jeans and tee shirt combo, statement sweatshirts are the perfect addition to any outfit during this bout of hit and miss weather.
Here, we take a look at 5 of the best for any budget.
