Vintage sports sweatshirts have made a comeback in a big way, from celebrities to influencers, everyone is investing in a comfy oversized graphic sweatshirt. With shops being closed, it’s pretty difficult to go rifling through thrift stores for an authentic second hand piece, but you can still get the desired retro effect with new sweatshirts too.

Inspired by American college varsity apparel, sports sweatshirts have been taking over our feed. From true vintage to vintage-inspired pieces, they are a key staple to any lockdown wardrobe. It appears that joggers and sports sweatshirts have replaced jeans and a nice top.

From Princess Diana to Maddison Beer, sports sweatshirts have been ingrained in the heart of athleisure since the early 90s and they aren’t going anywhere. Team your graphic sweatshirt with a cute tennis skirt and trainers, comfy joggers or straight leg jeans and combat boots. Add loads of layered gold jewellery for a delicate edge and you’re good to go.
