Do you own a hoodie? It’s most people’s lazy day clothing item of choice. Warm, relaxed, slouchy and soft, with a hood to block the world out. Hoodies are versatile pieces of clothing that can be worn in various ways. How you style a hoodie is important, and often a perfect undone look that you see on someone else has actually taken a lot more thought than you would think. Whether you are heading to the gym or going out on a date night, there will be a way to style a hoodie appropriately. Don’t just assume you can only wear one at the gym or lounging around the house.
If you’re looking for some inspiration on how to style a hoodie, then look no further! I’ve put together a guide to the coolest ways to wear a hoodie, so you can rock this comfortable and stylish piece of clothing any way you want.
How to Wear an Oversized Hoodie
Oversized hoodies are one of the most popular styles of hoodie. You don’t need to buy one that’s designed to be oversized to make this trend work either. Take a look online at men’s oversized hoodies as these can look great worn oversize on a female body, and their masculine designs can often give you a cooler and edgier look. It’s best to wear an oversized hoodie with a more slimline bottom half i.e. leggings, denim shorts or bare legs instead of a skirt, joggers or baggy jeans. For example, wearing an oversized hoodie as a dress can look so cool and stylish. It’s very comfortable too! You can even wear it like this on a date night. Just make sure the rest of you is groomed to perfection, otherwise you’ll just look scruffy and get the wrong effect.
Layer Your Hoodie
One of the best things about hoodies is that they’re easy to layer. If you get a hoodie in the correct size for you, that’s not oversized, it can look great layered over a maxi dress or paired with a maxi skirt. If you want to wear a dress, but want to dress it down a bit, layering a hoodie over the top can be the perfect solution. It gives you an extra layer of warmth too, and stops you having to wear a jacket or coat. This is definitely a casual look, so team this outfit with trainers or chunky boots.
Wear a Hoodie with Shorts
Another great way to wear a hoodie is with denim shorts on a summer’s evening. You are giving off summer vibes, but still keeping warm in the cooler evenings when you still want to keep your arms covered. Make sure your shorts are long enough so they can be seen out of the bottom of the hoodie. You can do this with an oversized or a more fitted hoodie. Team with chunky socks and trainers for a laid-back chic look a la Princess Diana going to the gym. Perfect for running errands or just relaxing at home. Distressed denim will give you a more grungy look as opposed to preppy.
There are many different ways to wear a hoodie, which is great as they are very comfortable and cosy. Pick up some cool designs and colours and start experimenting by creating different outfits with what’s in your wardrobe. There are so many different occasions where you can wear a hoodie too, so don’t keep yourself boxed in to just lounging around the house or going to the supermarket.
