The fact that I can actually wear a Crewneck sweater in June totally baffles me. The weather is so finicky in the Bay Area...one day hot, the next day...not so much! Since the weather has us all convinced it's diagnosed with bipolar disorder right now, it's always a great idea to keep a dope sweater handy at all times ( I like to keep mine in the trunk of my car) you never know wen it may get a little "nippy" outside. This rule especially applies to people like me because I'm ALWAYS cold! So since a sweatshirt is pretty much a staple in Northern Cali, I like to make sure it's: 1.) a Crewneck and 2.) it has some sort of "Personality" to it. While thrifting, I found this AWESOME embellished navy blue Crewneck sweatshirt and I immediately feel in love! So, you mean to tell me I can shine and sparkle my tiny self all though the city WHILE staying warm? SCORE! I'll take it! A lot of people tend to overlook the Crewneck because it can be quite, well...boring! Think about it, we only wear one when it get's cold or either when we want to run to the grocery store or get gas late night. It has sadly fallen in the " I'm lazy and don't feel like getting dressed" category. Also, 9 times out of 10 it has some dismal University Logo on it. B-O-R-I-N-G! I believe you can liven up anything, Crewnecks included. So, before we say R.I.P to the crewneck and pack them away in the back of our dresser drawers, let's first take a look at HOW to wear one in the summer. I paired my embellished Crewneck with a pair of floral print farm shorts and super high heels. I made sure to have an eye-catching miniature cross the body bag and minimal jewelry. A pair of electric blue mirrored Aviators sealed the deal and I was set to slay tha' summer!
Get excited about the Crewneck Sweater! It's a perfect way to stay warm while looking edgy! Here are a few Crewnecks ideas to keep you looking fresh!
1.) The Logo Lover- This is indeed a fan favorite and have been for years. Logo Crewnecks are for the sporty folks who want that laid back cool/cute look WHILE being comfortable. Comfort is key. Just make sure you're rocking' an up to date logo and your good to go!
2.) The Word Warrior- This is for the clever and BOLD! There's something about a statement or quote written across your chest that screams confidence! In order to pull this look off, make sure you have the attitude to match!
3.) The Minimalist Mid-drifter: Who said you can't make alterations to your crewneck? If it's too long or you desire more of a sexy 80's type feel, by all means make the proper adjustments to fit your style! There's something sexy about showing off a little bit of midriff! This kind of Crewneck keeps all eyes on you!
4.) The Edgy Embellisher- Shiny things makes the edgy embellisher's day! The more it blings, shines, and moves the better! If you have a huge "artsy" appetite, this type of Crewneck will absolutely fit your persona. Not for the faint of heart but surely for the beautiful and daring!
