Why Are Sweatshirts So Popular?
Are you guilty of wearing a sweatshirt 90% of the time that you’re not at work? We’re not surprised. Sweatshirts are becoming more and more popular as the years go by, with brands like Supreme, Nike, and Adidas continuing to come out with new designs each season. Artists like Drake and Kanye West have taken the “dress comfortably” adage to the level of making it acceptable to wear anywhere you go. We’ve come up with reasons why sweatshirts are popular with people these days.
- They’re comfortable to wear.
The cottony softness of sweatshirts have made it almost impossible to take off when we have to. We can’t blame you if you suffer from the same problem day in and day out.
- They have better designs.
Sometimes simplicity is key, and that’s what makes sweatshirts so attractive. Just the name of the brand is enough to make a statement that everyone around will understand.
- They have designs to fit both men and women.
Men’s sweatshirts usually have a bulkier shape to them, while women’s sweatshirts accentuate and flatter their figures more. Women also have the option of getting it different colors, so that’s a plus. Men’s sweatshirts are also borderline unisex, since women can wear the bigger and bulkier sized ones as a shirt dress while at home.
- It’s not just for working out.
While sweatshirts were initially designed to make people literally sweat in them, sweatshirts have become staples in loungewear. Paired with leggings or long socks, we don’t mind bumming around the house just wearing these comfy pieces.
- You can wear them anywhere.
It’s not uncommon to see people wearing sweatshirts in places like the beach, the fairgrounds, or a skate park. It’s not just for the city and suburban streets anymore.
- It comes in different styles.
You can choose from pullovers and the ones with a hood, with a zipper or without. Really, it’s comes down to your personal taste.
- They’re great hand-me-downs.
Our dads’ old university sweatshirts are really great to wear. They’ve been made softer with age so they’re super cozy.
- You can get one in every shop.
From high end brands to discount shops to thrift stores, any clothing store will probably have a sweatshirt in their inventory. You can choose to get them dirt cheap or pay a little mint to great new and great quality.
- Celebs can be seen wearing them all the time.
In their down time, celebrities like Kylie and Kendall Jenner, Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, and Gigi Hadid would step out in a sweatshirt without shame. They’ve embraced the sweatshirt as a good time-off outfit staple and their fans are quick to follow in their steps. They can be seen sweating it out in sweatshirts when they post about it on social media platforms like Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter. And as we mentioned earlier, rappers like Drake and Kanye West have proudly adopted to wearing sweatshirts as their uniforms.
