First look: contrasting sweatshirt and accessories black motorhead oversized hoodie The first look with which…
Perhaps you’ve found yourself with a stack of new hoodies after a loungewear shopping binge, given how much time we’ve spent in our sweatpants over the last few months? No need to save your hoodies for a rainy day—they’ve become a modern-day fashion statement, and I’m here to show it. This cozy staple isn’t only for relaxing around the house; it’s remarkably adaptable and can be worn in various situations. In the winter, layer a hoodie under a statement coat to stay warm, utilize a hoodie to balance off a pair of statement slacks and match it with a bright blazer and boots. The possibilities are endless. Here are a few hoodie styles that illustrate that ease could be stylish.
Bold Pants Dressed Down
The attitude for this Look is “casual on top, party on the bottom.” A simple grey hoodie can be worn over a loud pair of jeans and heeled boots to tame them down. The laid-back garment offers your ensemble a relaxed vibe and guarantees you don’t look overdressed.
Use a Blazer to Add Style
The ideal cool-girl outfit consists of a black sweatshirt and latex trousers. To add a refined feel to the edgy style, add a tailored blazer on top.
Under the Leather Jacket
It’s OK to stay in the more comfortable territory if you are not convinced about the fashion of high-low mix (it’s isn’t for everyone). A combo of leather jacket and hoodie is another one of those combinations that would remind the universe how to carry a hoodie in every season.
“Hoodies have substantially improved in terms of quality and fit,” says Alex Field, Reiss’ head of menswear design.
For the base, utilize a leather jacket, preferably black, along with black or indigo jeans, layer various colored hoodies under the layer of the jacket, and complete the look with a pair of suede or leather Chelsea boots.
The Look of “Dressing it Up.”
Buy your hoodie a couple of sizes too large for a truly unique look. You could rapidly transform the giant (at first glance) hoodie into a dress by doing so. If you’re worried that the hoodie would still be too short, wear some shorts underneath it to be safe. This design creates a casual yet unique ensemble when paired with shoes or boots. If you want to make it a little more feminine, add a thin belt to the “dress” to give it a waisted effect (pro tip: a waist bag can also be used as a belt).
This is likely the most significant taboo associated with the comeback, yet dressing up in a hoodie is now possible. Under a soft-shoulder, tailored jacket, or overcoat, layer a well-fitted sweatshirt in a luxury fabric over a button-down shirt or polo. Anchor with a pair of fitted pants and a simple leather sneaker or Chelsea boot
There was a time when wearing a hoodie, combined with balaclavas, swag bags, and black-and-white striped tops was enough to instantly identify you as a would-be robber and all-around bad guy.
However, as much as this simple sporting essential can send passers-by to the other side of the street, you now know how to wear hoodies properly.
