Celebs have done a lot to popularize the sweatshirt dress and we are immensely thankful to them for the favor as well. Intended to flatter the female silhouettes, these dresses can be as concealing as one wants though they can also be very sexy.

If you are the kind of girl that wants to show off an hourglass figure even from underneath a sweatshirt, the sweatshirt with belt look is for you. The look works best when the sweatshirt you’re wearing is lightweight as the belt will create a light ruching effect around your waist.

The combination of sweatshirts and skirts may look out of place but works wonders if you have the kind of legs that can be shown off proudly. As a rule of thumb, the baggy silhouette of the sweatshirt at the top needs to be balanced with a tighter fitting skirt at the bottom though you can also wear a frilly or layers skirt as long as it hits you no lower than 4 inches above your knee.

The quickest way to glam up a sweatshirt without showing too much skin is to wear them with a pair of tights or leggings. The combo keeps you cozy, warm and casual yet stylish enough to look like a diva when you pair it with high heels or boots.
