Boys tend to care more about how something feels than how it looks. Thankfully sweatshirts tick both these boxes. You'll find them in almost any color and with a range of prints, from simple logos and classic patterns like stripes to more unexpected designs.
Boys of any age love the comfort sweatshirts offer. They're typically made from soft cotton or a cotton-polyester blend and lined with a fleecy fabric extra warmth in winter, fall, and on chilly spring days. Boys' pullover sweaters are a common style, but you'll also find boys' hoodies, which feature a hood that can help warm the head. Hoodies have a more urban, street feel than pullovers, which many boys love.
Help Your Boy Look Fashionable in His Sweatshirt
Many boys need a helping hand when it comes to fashion. When you choose the right sweatshirt, the styling comes easily. Boys' sweatpants are the most obvious foil for sweatshirts. Block-colored sweatshirts look best with sweatpants in complementary colors. For example, pair a charcoal gray sweatshirt with paler heather gray sweatpants to make sure your boy doesn't appear too matchy-matchy.
For patterned sweatshirts, look for boys' sweatpants that pick up one of the colors in the print. When in doubt, neutral black or charcoal gray sweatpants should work well with any sweatshirt. You can also dress up a boys' sweatshirt by pairing it with jeans.
