Sweat sweaters, as the name suggests, should absorb sweat. It is usually used by athletes before and in pot training. The soft, absorbent, breathable material made it ideal to wear as it protected the body from sudden temperature changes caused by exercise.
Because of its comfort and ease of wear, the sweatshirt gradually began to be used as casual wear. They started to wear the sweat shirt over T-shirts and a shirt. This layered look has become a standard fashion trend among young people. Over time, it became mainstream mode due to its versatility.
The sweatshirt, which started out as an innocent, plain-looking garment, became very important when designers gave it a special look. While keeping the original shape, they just changed the style of the neckline, giving it more variety in look and use. The necklines included a round neckline, v-neckline, round neckline and polo neckline. The versions with a round neckline and V-neckline were given the additional option of a hood.
Of all the necklines, the crew neck was the most versatile as it works very well for both formal and everyday uses. It can be worn on a casual sweater or dress shirt on slightly chilly days and with a jacket on cold winter days. There was an air of sophistication about it. It also added class to street fashion.
Materials and colors
The crew neck jerseys were made from materials such as cotton or cotton mixed with polyester. They were soft to the touch and very absorbent. The colors used were generally gray and various levels of gray. Later blue, red, green and pink were incorporated. Today they are also available in different printouts to add a fun element.
