The history of the women's sweatshirt is relatively recent. Although if you start to study its history we will tell you that there were already similar garments during the Middle Ages.
These garments evolved until the 30s of the last century, when the Champion brand decided to manufacture and distribute them. And they had the brilliant idea of adding a hood. The idea was to make it easier for people who worked in cold rooms to work in the cold.
Shortly afterwards, the sweatshirts were introduced in military training and from there they made the leap to sport.
In the 1950s they became widespread among professional sportsmen.
In the 1970s they began to be worn as a distinctive garment by different groups in urban culture.
Skateboarders, rappers, hip-hop artists... and sweatshirts, especially those with hoods, were already consolidated as a benchmark in casual streetwear fashion.
With a sweatshirt you can create a wide variety of looks. Obviously the most popular is a combination of a sweatshirt, jeans and a pair of running shoes.
You can see that there is a women's sweatshirt for every occasion, you just have to spend a little time to find it.
If there is one feature that distinguishes sweatshirts, it is their comfort. On the one hand, there's the raglan sleeve cut that gives you enormous freedom of movement. On the other hand, there's the fabric it's made of.
The predominant fabric is cotton, which stands out for its comfort and pleasant feel. Although we can find it mixed with a wide variety of other fabrics, such as polyester, spandex...
Today it is still a sporty garment, but it has managed to carve out an important place in fashion and to have a specific name: athleisure.
