With its street-ready edge and obvious practical benefits, a hoodie has become more of a hero piece than a lounging standby in recent years and having one in your arsenal is pretty much essential. Here are three ways a hoodie can help you up your sartorial game.
Three ways to wear hoodies
By Kasia Hastings, 23 January 2016
The 90s don’t have to mean vintage sportswear and novelty neons – here, an oversized white hoodie gives a throwback ‘fit a strong 2016 update. Wear under a vintage denim jacket and layer with a longline tee to pick up Yeezy style points. Do the denim double with a pair of raw-hem jeans and add minimal kicks to nail your neutrals. Finally, roll your sleeves up and you’ve bagged yourself some bobble-free 90s gear.
Style with ease – it may look like there’s not much going on here but the devil is all in the detail. Textured, oversized, longline and side zips, the simple lines and shape of the hoodie are reworked to full effect. Pop on a pattered backpack and layer with a contrasting longline T-shirt to effortlessly up your print game. Wide-leg jeans keep things in cool skater territory and classic white Converse clean up the look nicely.
Join the rising ranks of army adopters with this fresh, clean-lined approach to military dressing. A brown zip-up hoodie, green MA1 bomber and crisp white tee will add up to a look that won’t get you caught in the fashion police firing line. Team with camo trews for a bolder look and mix up your colour palette with a pair of grey suede adidas Superstars.
