Jungle fever


Calling a sweatshirt "stylish" was once a stretch, but this fall the standard gym staple has had an upgrade. The formula is simple: comfort + a fashionable twist = a new staple that complements anyone's clothing stash.

Dressed up shirts ruled the runways and have become a new favourite of all the trendiest people. Wear yours with boxy shorts, a pencil skirt or even just a normal pair of skinny jeans for a pumped-up casual look. To really make a statement, pair your pullover with an unexpected printed bottom in a similar colour palette.

See the cool pullover pictured? Its sweatshirt cut makes animal print a cinch, so if you've been feeling iffy about this print trend, this is the way to incorporate it.
