8 Cute Alternatives to Your School Sweatshirt


On cold winter mornings when you'd rather stay snuggled in bed than get ready for class, it can be tempting to just throw on your school sweater and call it a day. But there are some cuter versions of the sweatshirt that aren't labeled with the logo of your alma mater. Here are some other options for those days when you just want to hit the snooze button.

1. Knotted

For a new twist on the sweatshirt, try the Knot Pullover by Cheap Monday ($79). The piece is simple, but the twist in the front adds some visual interest. With cuffed jeans and loafers, it’s perfect for a long day of classes. 

2. Shape Shift

We love the unexpected shape of Uniqlo's Urban Sweat Pullover ($39.90)—it's super modern, yet is easy to wear with anything. Pair it with a pencil skirt and heels for a dressier look that’s work appropriate.

3. Floral

Sweatshirts are traditionally sporty, but a feminine touch like this floral pattern above makes them fit for girly girls, too. We'd wear this H&M sweater ($9.95) with a gold pendant necklace and ankle booties.

4. Graphic

This ASOS sweatshirt ($53.06) doesn't apologize! A graphic, statment-making piece like this would look great peeking out from under a denim or leather jacket—just the right amount of edge.

5. Geometric

The abstract pattern of this Only Optical sweatshirt ($41.69) means you'll be drawing attention to your impeccable style... and not those dark circles under your eyes from that all-nighter you pulled the night before.

6. Plaid

Plaid is the pattern of the season this year—and luckily for us, the print makes any sweatshirt look so much more sophisticated. Layer this Only Plaid Sweat Top ($49.27) over an oxford shirt and leather riding boots for the total collegiate look.

7. Neoprene

This Marble Print Neoprene Sweatshirt from ASOS ($56.85) is a fun and unique way of wearing the trend. Go full-on sporty with a pair of brightly-colored sneakers! 

8. Alphabet

Go for an... academic look with the Letters Sweater ($64.43) by Hong Kong-based brand White Chocoolate! You can even get that model-off-duty look while saving some extra time in the AM—spend an extra five minutes in bed and skip doing your hair by topping this look off with a beanie.

So there you have it, collegiettes—you can wear a sweatshirt in public and still look great doing it! How will you be styling your sweatshirts?
