Every Girl Should Own A Grey Sweatshirt (PHOTOS)

Isabel Marant brought back memories of actress Jennifer Beals in her famous off-the-shoulder sweatshirt in "Flashdance" when she showcased the item in slouchy, could-care-less chic looks in her fall 2009 collection. For fall 2011, designers like Phillip Lim and Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy updated the staple in wool and leather for the former and satin for the latter, but we are still loving our grey cotton model -- we love the simplicity of the original, plus, they're easy on the wallet, and what's better than that?

Cynthia Rowley paired her high-school number with a ballgown skirt and the combination couldn't be more chic. Here, 10 grey sweatshirts that are too cool for school.
