Sweatshirts And Sweaters By Black Designers To Keep Warm During Winter Travel
By Bianca Lambert
Winter is just around the corner, December 21st to be exact, which means we’ll be bundling up to catch our next flights. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t be photoshoot fresh because you have to put on a few extra layers. With the right sweatshirt or sweater, you’ll be cozy and fashionable at the same time. Here are a few of our favorite sweatshirts (and a sweater) to add to your travel gear, and they’re all from black designers.
Harlem Fashion Row has been paving the way for black designers since its founder Brandice Daniel put on HFR’s first fashion show in 2007. In 2018, HFR and Lebron James collaborated to bring the LeBron 16 to life. Their ‘I Am Fashion’ sweatshirt not only comes in an array of colors, but you’ll be supporting a brand that supports other brilliant designers of color.
This black hoodie makes a great laying piece, and it will remind you and those you come in contact on your journey that there is always something to be thankful for because you are blessed.
Winter doesn’t mean you can’t add a little color to your wardrobe. When purchasing this colorful top, ladies be sure to order a size down while guys can order their standard size.
We must remember to continue to say Trayvon’s name. Liberated People took it a step further and made the “Our Son Trayvon” honorary hoodie, and didn’t stop there. For each sweatshirt purchased, 20 % of sales does to the Trayvon Martin Foundation.
Nothing like representing your hometown or paying respect to your new favorite borough with a new staple travel piece from Brooklyn based menswear brand, The Brooklyn Circus.
Show off your HBCU pride worldwide with this cotton and poly fleece hoodie. Nothing like an oversized sweater to check the stylish and comfy boxes when getting dressed for takeoff.
Beyoncé ‘Beychella’ Hoodie
Beychella might have come and gone, but it’s not too late to pick up cotton hoodie featuring Beyoncé’s Coat-of-Arms.
Who said sweatshirts couldn’t lean into luxury? Leave it to Dapper Dan to bring a little bling to a classic piece.
