Instant Cool Factor: The Statement Sweatshirt

The semiannual Fashion Week rush turns NYC into a veritable urban playground for the style elite, with swarms of photographers poised to capture editors, models, bloggers, and celebs in carefully curated — #OOTD-worthy — looks as they dash from show to show. Standing out is certainly no easy feat, but rest assured that hand-painted Burberry trench coats and Moschino-stamped Happy Meal accessories aren’t prerequisites for street style success. The easiest way to look seriously cool? Throw on a statement sweatshirt. The casual classic has come a long way from its coach-potato origins, revamped for the modern city girl with vintage logos, splashy graphic prints, and over-the-top embellishments. Get inspired by these street-style veterans, and score your own dressed-up layering piece from our sale, starting tonight at 9pm ET.
