Why does it work when sweatshirts most often conjure up a wearer at their most laziest? For starters, her sweatshirt instantly evokes a minimal polish with its fuss-free yet luxe looking fabrication while its cut keeps it looking anything but standard. Even her seatmate, the forever-stylish supermodel Kate Moss, who in all black, makes a case for easy yet refined simple elegance.
So if you are on the look for basic yet stylish garb to keep you warm & cozy as the temperature becomes all the more inconsistent, we suggest considering a proper, well-cut sweatshirt in a universal color as one of your go to’s at the moment.
Paired with adorable yet tough studded mary-jane flats and an animalier printed Mulberry bag, Chung looks cool in the easiest way possible. That’s part of the beauty of sweatshirt dressing as you can use a simple heather grey top as the perfect foundation for more stylized pieces.
