AS PART OF A LAYERED LOOKWhen used as part of a layered look, the hoodie can be surprisingly unassuming.
A cosy hoodie is a great layering piece for a day in the city, which will leave you looking sharp while keeping you warm at the same time.
To get this look right, wear a hoodie over a simple white crew-neck T-shirt, then add an overcoat or jacket, slim jeans and a pair of box-fresh trainers.
UNDER A LEATHER JACKET
If you’re not sold by the high-low mix (it’s not for everyone), then it’s okay to stick to more familiar territory. A leather jacket and hoodie combination is one of those pairings that work well, season after season, and will show the world you know how to wear hoodies.
Using a black leather jacket and black or blue jeans as the base, experiment with hoodies in different colors beneath your outerwear and combine with a pair of leather or suede Chelsea boots to smarten up this look.
If you’re looking to sharpen up, try layering under an unstructured suit for an outfit that rips up the traditional rule book.”
WITH TAILORED TROUSERS
For a slightly less committed way to mix smart and casual, a hoodie worn with a pair of smart trousers is your best bet. Again, it’s an easy way to avoid that dreaded overgrown adolescent territory.
- Team your hoodie with long formal coat.
- Get a grip on your look by opting for a neutral color hoodie, then add a pair of trousers and sports luxe sneakers.
- Hoodies can be worn in various situations. Whether that be to the gym or as part of a stylish off-duty look.
