13 Vintage Crewnecks To Show Off Your Hipster Side

You should probably share this:

Gone are the days where crewneck sweatshirts were worn exclusively for workouts and lounging around the house. Today, you can whip out a crewneck for anything from going to the shops to meeting for drinks and no one will even bat an eyelid!

While we’re thankful that comfort has taken center stage, some of the crewnecks of today can be just plain old boring. When we picture the perfect crewneck, our minds go straight to Princess Di post-workout or Kurt Cobain rocking an oversized fit - and the best way to achieve this look, without a doubt, is by wearing a vintage sweatshirt.

Their rounded necks and oversized style make crewnecks perfect for year-round wear: you can layer up for winter, or pair one with some shorts on warmer days. Basically, what we’re saying is we think your wardrobe should contain a lot more vintage-inspired sweatshirts!
