This Basic Item is Trending, and It Goes With Jeans, Leggings, and Sweats

This last year has really been the year of trendy basics. Between lots of lounging around and a desire to dress more casual in and out of the house, basics have taken on a whole new level of importance. Of course, being the style-minded people we are, we not just going to wear any old basic clothing item. It’s going to be a slightly cooler, more updated version and today I’m adding one more of these trendy basics to my list of favorites: crewneck sweatshirts.

I’ve been loving the style which feels fresher than your average hoodie and fashion people have also taken a liking to them, too. All over my feed, I’m seeing loads of outfits with sweatshirts that make the formerly-boring basic look anything but. Whether they’re throwing one on with leggings, styling it with loose jeans and sneakers, or creating a full look with matching sweatpants, it’s working. Continue on to see some of these ‘fits so you can understand exactly where my obsession stems from and shop my favorite crewnecks.

Normally leggings and a sweatshirt aren’t the most forward look, but the addition of a boxy blazer and a baseball cap add so much style.

Wear yours with loose jeans, sneakers, and plenty of gold jewelry for a very Hailey Bieber-inspired vibe.

As you can see here, oversize crewnecks were basically made for leggings and sneakers. A shoulder bag and tall socs give it a ’90s spin.

Another fashion girl-favorite way to add style to the basic? Layer it over a collared shirt.

There’s nothing easier than throwing on matching sweatpants to your crewneck for one cohesive loungewear look.

Opt for a fun graphic crewneck over a plain sweater for a cool, sporty feel.

A long wool coat adds polish to a simple leggings-and-sweatshirt combo.

One more comfy look because let’s face it, this is our current vibe.
