#OOTD: Wear Your Crewneck Sweater The Right Way This Winter

OK, ladies and gentlemen … let’s get down to business today on The Style Guide. In the case of today’s #OOTD series entry,  that means we’re taking a style staple you know and love — the classic crewneck sweatshirt — and showing you how you should be wearing it this winter. Of course, there are all kinds of ways to wear the right crewneck sweatshirt, including with classic dark denim and a sturdy set of winter boots. We’re sticking along much the same lines today, yet drawing some inspiration from across the pond. That’s right … you know who can wear the heck out of a stylish crewneck sweatshirt? Mr. David Beckham. He’ll take a piece like the Flint and Tinder Reversible French Terry Sweatshirt as seen below — OK, perhaps not that exact sweatshirt — and he’ll wear it pieces much dressier (like sharp leather Chelsea boots). So, that’s the direction in which we’re headed today. For what it’s worth, we’ll also be throwing on pieces like a great winter jacket and a casual pair of blue jeans … for that full Beckham effect. If you’ve got any thoughts on the below #OOTD, I look forward to hearing ’em over E-mail or at The Style Guide Facebook page!

Feel free to pair your crewneck sweatshirt with classic (and slightly dressier) style staples.
The Sweatshirt Flint and Tinder Reversible French Terry Sweatshirt, $78 — Here’s possibly the perfect crewneck sweatshirt we’ve been talking about — slim-fitting, well-crafted and easy to layer & wear. Job nicely done, Flint and Tinder!

The Jacket: Baro The DeMarco Jacket, $262 — Perfect for layering over a rugged crewneck sweatshirt (you guessed it!), the weather-read Baro DeMarco Jacket can more than readily work in spring atop lighter layers, too.

The Denim: Flint and Tinder Dark Indigo Jeans, $118 — Dark, sharp blue denim, like the Flint and Tinder Dark Indigo Jeans, are foolproof with any outfit — especially ensembles that feature a mix of casual and tailored pieces.

The Boots: Astorflex Bitflex Chelsea Boots in Tan Leather, $170 — Just like Mr. Beckham, mash up this mostly laidback outfit with the Astorflex Bitflex Chelsea Boots, which pack a serious punch with classic dark denim or a tailored suit.
The Belt: Tanner Goods Standard Belt, $84.98 — If you know me, you know I recommend never, ever skimping on accessories — like the Tanner Goods Standard Belt seen here.
The Watch: Huckberry Seiko Dive Watch, $319.98 — Because this outfit is filled with rich neutrals, from a broken-in crewneck sweatshirt to sharp blue denim, a tough dive watch with a sporty vibe works just fine.
The Socks: CHUP Reindeer Socks, $24.98 —  Have just a little bit — seriously, only a bit — of fun with this outfit thanks to patterned, winter-friendly socks from CHUP.

The Beanie: BANKS Stripe Insignia Beanie, $25 — A stylish beanie cap is practically a winter essential, and the BANKS Stripe Insignia Beanie injects just a bit of visual interest into this outfit.

I hope that #OOTD did the trick in terms of how to wear a crewneck sweatshirt this winter — a well-fitting, well-made piece like the Flint and Tinder Reversible French Terry Sweatshirt is practically the ideal building block off of which to incorporate more tailored staples. And those tailored staples would happen to be? Why, a crisp-yet-functional jacket like the Baro DeMarco Jacket, plus bulletproof jeans like the Flint and Tinder Dark Indigo Jeans — are you still with me here?  Subtly stylish accessories like the CHUP Reindeer Socks and the sporty BANKS Stripe Insignia Beanie add just enough visual interest to this outfit. On your wrist, the Huckberry Seiko Dive Watch keeps the focus squarely on the rest of this outfit’s key pieces — lest we forget though, you need a versatile belt to round it all out. My friends, the Tanner Goods Standard Belt is that piece. And with that, we’re all set with this week’s #OOTD! What’d ya think? Let me know in the comments below.

Thanks for reading — as always!
