Trend Spotting: Fall’s Fancy Sweatshirts (Photos)

The sporty staple goes high style.

One delightfully cool morning and the pending kickoff of New York Fashion Week. That’s all it takes to launch us full-force into fall fashion daydreaming. At the top of our new-season must list? The recent crop of high-style sweatshirts. Yup, sweatshirts. File this one under trends we can totally get behind (so cozy!).

These pullovers aren’t just blah gray terrycloth and sporty V-stitch necklines, though—on the fall runways, designers such as Givenchy, Lanvin and Tibi gave the comfy basic a majorly chic makeover. To do it right, skip the slouch in favor of more structured silhouettes with the requisite vaguely athletic sweatshirt styling, but decked out with fashiony details. Think luxe leather. Sparkly crystal embellishments. Digital prints atop sculptural neoprene. Pick your fave interpretation; wear everywhere and endlessly.
