The Sweatshirt || NYLONshop

Monday, March 10, 2014


I have been looking forward to this post for almost a month now! Today I am introducing to you the awesome relaunch of Nylon Magazine's NYLONshop. I had the opportunity to select this sweatshirt from their site, and it was honestly not an easy decision. There are pages on pages of the raddest products in the NYLONshop, from clothes to accessories to shoes. If you're familiar with Nylon Magazine, I'm sure you love its urban pop-culture vibe as much as I do. I can always count on the magazine for providing the most interesting music recommendations. Nylon's loud personality resonates in this new shop, so I suggest you check it out.

Forever 21 skirt (here) & sunglasses | Go Jane heels (here)


I chose this sweatshirt because of its obvious irony in the blogging world. Especially as a fashion student, I constantly feel the pressure to look my best. This top is the perfect piece for those days you just can't get out of bed. It screams, "I'm wearing sweats, and I'm proud." 

For the sake of this blog post, I found a way to dress the sweatshirt up. With the rise of the athletic/casual trend, I've seen so many bloggers sporting the "chic sweatshirt" look. I'm sure you've already seen Aimee Song rock this trend effortlessly (here). I paired mine with an all black look to make the graphic stand out. To contrast the sweatshirt's oversized, boxy look, I wore my new lace up heels for a touch of femininity. I was also so excited when I found these five dollar shades in Forever 21. I am not in a rush to buy luxury sunglasses, but I have been admiring the mirrored Ray Bans for a while now. I think the mirrored look gives off a cool urban vibe that just matches this sweatshirt perfectly. Maybe one day I'll build up the courage to splurge on the real pair.

Don't forget to check out the NYLONshop -- you won't be disappointed!
