How to Style Men’s Logo Sweatshirts

The logo sweatshirt is the laidback, ‘cool’ best friend to the hoodie that belongs in every man’s wardrobe, all year round.

With modest beginnings as sportswear, football players sought out a comfortable alternative to their itchy wool jerseys and traded them in for the all-cottons style which we have now come to know and love.

The iconic pullover has been equally as game-changing in sports as it has been in men’s fashion.

How to Style a Men’s Sweatshirt

Whether you’re searching for a sweatshirt to kick it back in style, or you’re on the lookout for a logo design to debut at a special occasion, our guide is here to serve outfit inspiration from season to season.

Our all-encompassing collection of sweatshirts for men features a style for everyone. Keep reading to discover our top picks plus, how to style them.

Look 1: Preppy Style with Chinos

The marvel of the sweatshirt is its’ duality. Lightweight enough for comfortable athletic wear yet retaining enough heat to be worn in cooler temperatures.

With that in mind, pull together a casual ensemble and team a light-coloured sweatshirt with a pair of chinos for those cooler, spring days.

Tasteful taupes from the likes of Acne Studios', complemented with a pair of stone chinos and white leather sneakers, will create an effortless daytime look.

For an urban feel, switch up your colourways and sport an off-white Maison Kitsuné logo sweatshirt with casual green chinos. For this look, leather loafers are an apt footwear choice, peruse our edit to discover your perfect pair.

Pastels shades are very much in style for SS22, and Stone Island’s offerings of light blue and lilac logo cotton sweatshirts are the perfect pairing for darker shade chinos.

Look 2: Street-Smart Casual with Jeans

The ever-evolving sweatshirt made its transition from sportswear to statement-wear during 1950s America, when athletes donned their romantic counterparts in their beloved jerseys. Around the same time, polo shirts and letterman jackets emerged. Fast forward to the 70s, when universities began emblazoning school apparel with their logos.

A well-fitting pair of men’s designer jeans are not only a staple in your wardrobe, they’re also a must-have for any smart-casual look, especially when paired with a timeless logo sweatshirt.

Opt for an edgy appeal with Kenzo's tiger-embroidered cotton sweatshirt, which is well-complimented by both classic blue denim jeans, as well as, darker black skinny jeans. When styling with the latter, a pair of men’s Chelsea boots wouldn’t go amiss.

Master the all-black look and style a Givenchy sweatshirt with black distressed jeans and for a pop of colour, finish with hi-top sneakers.

For a more traditional look, Balmain's logo cotton sweatshirt teamed with skinny jeans and canvas trainers is an effortless combination.

Look 3: Get Sporty with Summer Athleisure

There’s no better way to honour the lauded sweatshirt and its roots, than by throwing together an athleisure-inspired look.

Put a spin on the traditional tracksuit and co-ordinate your C.P. Company logo print sweatshirt with a matching pair of cotton shorts. These trendy two-pieces are the epitome of athleisure and add a unique stamp to your get-up with canvas chunky sole trainers. Weather permitting, add a pair of designer shades and you’re good to go.

Continue the sporty apparel and swap into casual cotton sweatpants from favourites such as Stone Island and Boss, teamed with a Billionaire Boys Club crew-neck sweatshirt. There’s no need to go matchy-matchy on this look, so break up your outfit by wearing a dark top and going lighter on the bottoms. Trainers are the go-to footwear for this look and you’ll find anything from a hi-top to a round-toe sneaker will work well.

Stay loyal to skate style and double on the Amiri with their effortlessly cool tie-dye patterned shorts topped with a statement logo sweatshirt. Hit the skate park in pair of flat canvas shoes by Gucci or Fendi.

What to Wear Over a Sweatshirt

Naturally versatile, men’s designer sweatshirts are the perfect protégé for layering. Outerwear can completely transform your look depending on both the time of the year and the dress code. Feel confident in whatever overgarment you decide to rock with our compilation of a few trusted styles below.

Look 4: Pair with a Bomber Jacket

Logomania resurged as a trend in the 1980s, and shortly thereafter, Vivienne Westwood dropped the SS 1993 Anglomania collection, a fusion of refined elegance and punk-rock spirit. This ubiquitous style can still be found today, and Harvey Nichols’ offerings in sand and sage can be revamped instantly with the throw over of a Fred Perry or Stone Island bomber jacket.

Embrace the varsity style and toss on a varsity bomber jacket with college-inspired designs from Off-white and The Holy Grail featuring embroidered details and badge appliqués, to wear on top of a Calvin Klein ‘CK’ sweatshirt. Seal your style with an accompanying designer cap.

Look 5: Bring Out a Leather Look

For a simultaneously comfortable and dapper look, a light-coloured sweatshirt such as Polo Ralph Lauren’s performance grey sweatshirt or a Moncler sweatshirt, fashioned with a Rick Owens leather jacket will see you from cosy autumn weather through to bright, but cooler spring days.

Make waves with bold accessories, including a pair of square-frame sunglasses and a statement piece of jewellery such as a signet ring. Depending on the vibe, and the weather, opt for boots, brogues or basketball sneakers to complete your look.

Keen to recreate a 90s-inspired grunge look? Men's distressed jeans in dark shades and black jeans will have you serving a gothic edge. Skinny jeans layered with a Loewe Anagram sweatshirt, and a black leather biker jacket, will allow you to channel that rough and ready look.

Look 6: Layer Up with a Longline Coat

The trench coat is a classic outerwear piece for both him and her. Layer up an embroidered Moschino sweatshirt with a trench coat to transform the renowned formal jacket into urban streetwear. Compliment the length of your jacket to your height and finish the look with a knit beanie and cotton-blend socks.

For brisker temperatures, the padded longline jacket will provide you much-needed warmth and Canada Goose’s range of artic-tech coats are expertly designed to protect you from the harsh elements. An array of coloured sweatshirts can be matched with this classic black coat, and similarly, a variety of footwear.
