Hoodies have been a must-have staple for sporty activities, but are now considered as a street style ensemble to give your outfit some cool and mysterious look. If you think that hoodies are only for gym and jogging, then you’re wrong as designers make use of their creative skills to make these hoodies ideal for a chic fashion style. Whether you’re aiming for a sporty-chic, casual chic, sophisticated, or winter-inspired look, keep on reading for our style inspirations on wearing hoodies.
Since hoodies were originally made for a sporty lifestyle, let’s start with a sporty-chic look. Fashion blogger Chiara Ferragni creatively wore her neon hoodies with her chic outfit spiced up with a gold chain bracelet and a structured bag. You may think of wearing your animal print pumps and even heeled strappy sandals to avoid looking like heading to the gym. Like Chiara, you may incorporate some sports-inspired items like a pair of striped shorts or a tennis skirt with your hoodies and polish your style with chic sandals.
Denim jeans are indeed comfortable and hoodies will be a perfect match with them. To make your casual style a bit chic, go for hoodies with chic styles and design, or simply opt for a hooded coat to dress up your slouchy boyfriend jeans. If you pull up a hood that’s attached to the shoulders or lapel of a garment, you’ll end up looking like you have a gigantic neck and no shoulders. So be careful wearing them especially with jeans to avoid looking broader and more awkward. Instead, only pull it up when you’re outside and trying to shield your face or hair from the elements.
If you think hoodies can hardly make your style look chic and sophisticated, you’re wrong as street style stars have pulled the look in an unexpected and stylish way. Like fashion blogger Chiara Ferragni, you may think of a hooded poncho to wear with your black skinny jeans and boots. Just be confident and glamorous like her that the hooded poncho will give you a slightly mysterious look. A monochromatic outfit will always give you a timeless look. So, stick to shades of black, white, brown, and even gray to look sophisticated and chic.
You can also create an edgy outfit with hoodies by wearing them with leather trousers and skirts. If you’re not a fan of leather, then simply make your outfit look edgy by creating an architectural silhouette, modern style, and even androgynous look. Footwear like pointy boots, oxfords, brogues, loafers, studded boots, and even combat boots can instantly make your typical outfits look edgy.
Fall and winter seasons are great for creating layered outfits, but sometimes a hooded coat is enough. Like fashion blogger Annabelle Fleur, you may simply resort to a fur hooded coat worn with jeans and thigh-high boots. Parka coats, puffer coats, and even raincoats with hoods can be great alternatives. Just stick to thick fabrics and insulating details like velvet and fur that can give you warmth while keeping you stylish. Indeed, hoodies are great for an adventurous, fashion-forward, and trendy street style that can be vamped up with your confidence and strong personality.
