The Perfect Grey Sweatshirt

The quest to find the perfect Grey Sweatshirt has been instilled in me since childhood after first seeing Alex in Flashdance. I mean who didn’t want a grey-marl sweatshirt that causally hangs off one shoulder? And then there’s SJP who rocked a vintage grey sweatshirt and has since been on record stating that a grey sweatshirt teamed with jeans is her favourite outfit.

A grey sweatshirt has been part of my staple wardrobe ever since…

My current favourite is from Sunspel (I have the matching sweatpants too for ultimate casual luxe) I just wish I’d sized up or bought a mans version to give that relaxed look. Beyond Retro has a selection of vintage sweatshirts where you’ll be able to create the retro look for a fraction of the price. To get the oversized style, we recommend borrowing from the boys and heading to the men’s section.

Em’s Grey Sweatshirt Edit…


I have a women’s sunspel sweatshirt, it’s the perfect grey and material, but I wish I’d gone for a more oversized look.



American Vintage is renowned for there sweatshirts, and this one is a dream.



For value for money head to Next men’s department. Turn up the sleeves to add a stylish touch to a simple sweater.


Ok so not it’s not a plain grey sweatshirt,
but this sweater from men’s brand Kent & Curwen is super cool. David Beckham is also a partner in the brand. It’s one brand we’ll be borrowing from the boys.


How to Style…


Apart from the obvious with Jeans & Trainers, the Grey Sweatshirt is super versatile. You can team with anything from Leather to Sequins. It looks equally as chic styled with tailored trousers as it does with beat-up denim jeans or simply wear under a blazer or leather jacket to nail smart-casual.
