It’s true that we have turned hoodies into our ultimate comforters for rainy days. To snuggle up in front of the TV watching sports center on a Saturday night after dodging a “fun” party and three after parties—hoodies are the go-to things we pull out to wear without second thoughts.
But what if I were to tell you that your same hoodies can make you the style icon of all kinds of outings?
It might seem impossible but by the end of this article you will be digging out all your old hoodies to bring out chic in you this season (and every other).
Hoodies are casual, comfort, lazy. Sequins are trendy, partywear, the ultimate bling. And I say they work great together. While making your style statement unique, bold and brave, this combo can make you the talk off the party without efforts.
Choose your best sequin short skirt and throw on a plain hoodie and you’re good to go. The best thing about this look is that you can easily pull it off with a pair of pumps or sneakers.
Bring out your A-game street style with pairing a hoodie with a floral maxi dress. This ensemble will help you in portraying your unique style in the sassiest way possible. With minimum accessorizing, you can carry this look with simple ankle boots or sneakers.
Hoodie as a Dress
So much for layering your dresses with a hoodie when you can simply choose to turn your oversized hoodie into a dress. Pull out that oversized hoodie you wear while watching Sleepless in Seattle on your couch and dazzle away during your day-outs.
Hoodies for Your Formals
As amazing as a hoodie looks in your casual look, it can look better when worn for a client meeting. The only thing to remember here is that bigger sizes won’t work well here. If your hoodie is appropriately sized, it would be a stunner when worn over a formal button-down shirt or a plain t-shirt with a formal suit and your most loved stilettos or boots.
The thing with cropped hoodies is that either they’re your style or they’re not, there is no in between. But if they are your thing then you can bring out your inner diva by simply pairing them with high or mid-waisted leggings, jeans or even miniskirts without the need of added accessories.
The Trench Look
One of the chicest looks that you can carry with your hoodie is by pilling it under a classic trench coat. This look is the best version of a smart casual style which you can opt for going to the office or casual meetings.
Pairing with Joggers
There are very few things more comfortable in the world than a hoodie and joggers pair. And apart from being super-comfy, this style can easily become your day look if you pick out the right joggers.
A plain hoodie (oversized or otherwise) can make you flared and fitted joggers look attractive and urban.
The versatility of a denim skirt is another post in itself but there are not many things that complement it like a hoodie. In fact, a hoodie with a denim skirt is one of the styles that you cannot go wrong with. Regardless of your choice of accessories and shoes, this look will always look good.
So for the days you can’t decide what to wear, you know what to do now. Many people believe that wearing a hoodie is “lazy”. However, when you have got your style game this strong, you do not have to worry about anything. So bring out your best hoods and show off your style.
