Nowadays there are no difficulties when buying a sweatshirt. They are available at almost all stores and they fit every taste. But this was not always the case. At the beginning of these sweaters’ history, they were worn only by football players during training. They used to be cotton garments that replaced hot woolen sweaters. In 1922, Benjamin Russell offered to alter the top of woman’s overalls and create a new kind of garment for his football team. At first, all the sweatshirts used to be gray but later on they were modernized. Some imprints were made that meant belonging to a particular team.
Baseball players, athletes and other sportsmen picked up the trend of sweatshirts extremely quickly. So in the 60s, wome’s sweatshirts became an integral part of the casual style of that time.
The word “sweatshirt” stems from “sweater” and “shirt”. Its characteristic feature is the absence of pockets and the hood. This is how they differ from hoodies and fleece jackets. The fabric is usually soft with the finest netting.
The main trend of the latest season is cropped sweatshirts that expose the belly and accent the slimness of a girl. However, the most popular model is a bloused sweatshirt with a thick elastic band on the bottom.
