After sharing this half-zip sweater last week, I got several questions about it so I knew it was a trend y’all were into. I’m personally obsessed and love the preppy yet casual vibe of it. Plus, from activewear to cashmere, I like that there are different versions of the trend depending on your style.
Here’s how to wear the sweater based on your personal style + my favorite sweater for each.
What’s your favorite?
HALF-ZIP SWEATERS PER STYLE
ATHLETIC: Lululemon makes this version that I’m sure will sell fast as it’s very wearable but you still get that half-zip look.
CASUAL: OK can we talk about this gorgeous green sweatshirt? It’s one of my favorites on the list and my top pick for the casual category. I also like this comfy Year of Ours Pullover that’s on sale for $84.
TRENDY: Anine Bing does trendy in a cool, edgy way and her Half-Zip Pullover is a perfect representation of that with the collar and slightly puffed sleeves. I’d also classify the half-zip that I bought (it’s this one) on the more trendy side because the collar is major but it also feels classic at the same time, you know? I just know I’ve grabbed it countless times over the last couple of weeks and it works with everything from leggings to denim.
CLASSIC: If you’re looking for the trend toned down a bit, this $78 Reformation Sweatshirt is a good option (lots of colors here as well). This fuzzy pullover is also pretty classic and the toffee color is gorgeous!
PREPPY: To me, this trend can look preppy (which I’m into) when the color is large or wider like done here. I’d probably pair it with joggers and sneakers for an effortless, cool style while still mixing in a bit of prep. If you want the preppy look pair with cashmere, don’t miss this Wool + Cashmere Sweater that’s veryyyy chic.
