What on earth is a “Couture Sweatshirt“?
It sounds like an oxymoron. Isn’t a sweatshirt, something you wear at home when it’s cold and damp outside and you’re watching Netflix?
When I was putting my Fall Capsule Wardrobe together I saw this on the Banana Republic website and thought, “I have no idea what a couture sweatshirt is, but I want one”. When I received it in the mail, I was pleasantly surprised.
What I needed was a “Netflix and popcorn” kind of sweatshirt. That is definitely NOT what I got.
This is the coolest and most versatile shirt ever!
The fabric is a little shiny. So, automatically, it’s a little dressy. The fabric is a nylon/rayon blend. I can’t even hardly describe it. But, suffice it to say, it’s anything BUT your megastore sweatshirt.
The pictures and description on the website don’t do it justice.
I want to wear this all the time with jeans, skirts, everything. And, I want one in every style. I’m telling you, it’s the coolest Fall/Winter top ever!!!! They have several different styles. Even some with bows. I want them all. “Dear Santa Clause, ………”
I paired my “couture sweatshirt” with skinny jeans and tall ankle boots. (Or, as I like to call them, “sitting” boots, NOT walking boots.)
Banana Republic rarely disappoints. We don’t have a store near us so I have to order online. Their sizing is generally true to size. I usually wear a 4/6 and have good luck figuring out what size I should order. Their website is easy to navigate and fairly easy to search.
I love Banana Republic because they have a great selection, very good quality, and they have terrific sales. If you get on their email list, you won’t be disappointed.
These pictures were taken on the campus of University of the South, in Sewanee, TN. It’s absolutely gorgeous. Don’t be surprised if you see more pictures in the future from this gorgeous area. We are always looking for an excuse to drive there just to look around and admire the buildings.
