This man has a very distinct style and definitely knows what he’s talking about when it comes to fashion. Kanye West loves sweatshirts, recently declaring they are important in a recent interview. All I can say is that I feel you, ‘Ye. If he says they are the next “it” thing, then I believe him. I mean, he did call the whole leather joggers trend, did he not? He can’t help the fact that he’s a visionary, you know?
In an interview with Vanity Fair, he said, “I think sweatshirts are the way of the future… Sweatshirts are f***ing important. That might sound like the funniest quote ever. How can you say all this stuff about running for president in 2020 and then say sweatshirts are important? But they are. Just mark my words. Mark my words like Mark Twain.”
I’m so glad that someone like West shares my belief in sweatshirts because I practically live in them come wintertime, and finally they're going to be considered fashionable. If West says they're cool, then so be it, right?
Like it or not, he’s got a certain style when it comes to his wardrobe and what he puts down the runway. See seven times that he’s owned a baggy sweatshirt look, and keep in mind that West has a Public Service Announcement for you: Sweatshirts are important. So, get with it, you guys.
Yep, he rocked a sweatshirt at the VMAs like only he could do.
2. Eagle Sweatshirt
Only he could pull this off.
3. Rapper Style
I bet even Jay-Z approves of his look.
4. Paper Magazine
He even wore a sweatshirt on the cover of a magazine.
5. Fashion Week
He attends fashion shows in them, too.
6. Business Meeting
Maybe he'll convince Ralph Lauren of their importance, too.
They're cool enough for Kim K to wear them.
Yep, I'm totally on board with this — and all of his other policies. Sweatshirts are in, and Kanye for President! All is right with the world.
