17 Cheap Ways To Make Your Sweatshirts Look Cute AF

I don’t know about you, but winter is the season of fleece-lined leggings and comfy sweatshirts. It’s an easy and cozy outfit that requires little effort (and money) and still keeps you warm all winter. I, for one, have one specific sweatshirt I wear at every possible moment in the colder months. The problem with wearing sweatshirts all the time is that you can sort of start looking like a… bum. I mean, sometimes you want to be cozy, but still look cute, right? So how do you do that when you’re essentially wearing sweats? No problem, we’ve got an answer for you.

I know that buying a whole new winter wardrobe is something that everyone wants to do in the beginning of the year, but that’s not realistic. Who has hundreds of dollars to drop on new clothes you’ll wear for only the next few months? Sure, you could use your leftover holiday money, but you want to save that. Instead of spending all of your hard-earned money, try to use these simple DIY projects to update your sweatshirts from cozy to cozy AND chic. You’ll look amazing, stay warm, and be saving money. It’s win-win-win. Check out these simple sweatshirt updates:
