How should your sweatshirt or hoodie fit?
When the cooler months creep in, the silver lining to the darker days is getting cosy and snug in your winter sweatshirts and hoodies. Now that dress codes have loosened up, with the more relaxed-fit jumpers being on trend, it is the perfect time for pulling off your pullover.
The Mama Life London sweatshirts are known for being slouchy and with an uber cosy fleece material inside.
If you are a size 8 to 10 and you like your clothing to still feel relatively fitted then the size small will work best. If, however, you have a large bust or prefer a wider-cut then go up a size to a medium.
Use this guideline to help you through selecting your size. If you are a 10 to 12, pick a medium, unless you like extra room around your waist and bust. If you are a 14 go for a large or up a size to X Large for added comfort, and if you are a size 16 then X Large is the size for you.
The oversized hoodies are a cosy staple for every wardrobe and a key piece for the strong streetwear trend. The good news about this new fashion favourite is that it can also be styled up to take your look up a notch from college student to cool mama.
Pair your hoodie with a more structured layer such as a leather, denim or slim-fit bomber jacket for an effortless style. Throw on a pair of heeled boots to dress it up even more, or go off duty with your ‘Never Off Duty’ hoodie and opt for some smart trainers.
The size you select will depend on whether you want to go slightly slouchy to body-drowning. The Mama Life London hoodies are oversized and unisex, therefore not fitted. A small would fit someone size 8 to 12, but if you want to go for the really baggy look go up to medium. This applies again if you are a 12 to 14 go medium or large if you want to feel as cosy as an adult baby swaddled in fabric. 14 to 16 pick large or X Large for true sloppy style.
Knowing how to choose the right fit for your body type is essential to you feeling comfortable in your clothes and nailing the trend.
If you are curvy you might try to hide your shape behind loose clothing on both your top and bottom, but by completely camouflaging your whole body you can look bigger than you are. Try to wear the oversized style with skinny jeans to add shape. and flatter your curves.
If you are bigger below, select a brighter colour on top to draw the eye to your upper body.
If you have short legs try tucking in or folding your sweatshirt over to lengthen them. If you have long legs, wear your sweatshirt so that it fits at the hip or longer to lengthen your upper body.
