The quarantine and lockdowns definitely affected the way we dressed this 2020. Much of the style we see today are leaning towards comfort and functional wear perfect for the indoors, doing a groceries, or driving out to grab your favorite cup of coffee. A piece we’ve been seeing a lot on Instagram is the comfy sweater. Sweater that are plain, logo-clad, or embroidered with cool words have definitely become a closet staple of many despite our tropical weather.
But on the runway, sweaters have also made a comeback for the Fall season and even made their way into the resort and SS 2021 shows. Browse through Versace, Miu Miu, and Moschino’s latest collections and you’ll surely find a look to cop—you’ve probably seen an iteration of it on your favorite influencer.Raf Simons sent out oversized sweaters over midi skirts for his Spring/Summer 2021 menswear collection.
Here are five runway-approved sweater fits you can totally wear now as seen on the cool girls (and boy) of Instagram.
Oversized Sweater + Matching Shorts + Socks + Chunky Sneakers
Work one of Miu Miu’s key athleisure looks from their Resort 2021 collection into your wardrobe. Influencers like Ida Anduyan and Angelique Manto opted for chunky sneakers instead of Miuccia Prada’s choice of heels. We think this cool out-of-the-gym shorts and sweater 'fit looks good either way.
Sweater + Tennis Skirt + Sneakers
Bella Hadid actually donned this combination for Versace’s Fall-Winter 2020 collection but obviously more glammed up. Strut its laidback counterpart like Preview Clique’s Chrissean Mae Feuntebella, with your favorite baguette bag and white kicks. The key piece here is the trendy tennis skirt we see the Gen Z set on TikTok and IG sport on the daily.
Sweater + Trousers + Sneakers
Going for a classy and effortless look that's laidback? Dior sent out tailored sweater looks for their Pre-Fall 2021 menswear collection, which we think anyone would look good in. Take cues from David Guison and finish off this dressy but still comfy outfit combo with some Jordans or a chunky sneaker of your choice.
Sweater + Matching Sweatpants
If you want to commit, then why not pair your sweatshirt with some sweatpants? Apiece Apart’s 2021 collection wants you to don this look in monochrome pastels. But we love how Preview Clique Dan Soliman worked her athleisure ‘fit incorporating two local streetwear brands.
Sweater + Bike Shorts + Crossbody bag
Though this outfit combo has been a runway fave since 2018, it’s safe to say that it has found its way to everyone’s wardrobe in 2020. For their Spring/Summer collection this year, streetwear brand Palm Angels sent out this look in a creamy white and beige colorway with matching knee-high boots. You can say that Rhea Bue’s version is the minimalist dupe you can totally wear everyday. We also think that the mini crossbody bag is an excellent touch if you’re running errands.
