Incessant new trends combined with constantly changing collections offer endless styling possibilities, especially for women. However, there are some pieces that just never go out of fashion: style icons that you can wear forever and regardless. One of these basics is certainly the classic Hoodie – it’s a must-have in every wardrobe, especially during the colder months.
Hoodies are renowned for their exceptional levels of comfort, which is why these sweatshirts are more likely to be somewhat associated with sporty looks, or relaxed outfits for lazy Sundays. But, with the right accessories and styling secrets you can integrate the hoodie into your everyday life in a versatile way.
So, even if a hoodie doesn’t seem to be the trendiest garment at first glance, it offers the wearer many subtle combinations. That’s why we’ve partnered with Judith to showcase how to wear a Hoodie for women:
- All black
- Dress it up
The “Relaxed” Look
This doesn’t have to mean blue denims. How about another sort of trouser to spice up the look a bit but keep it simple at the same time. You could choose chinos, or a more elegant trouser with patterns or white denims. The only must with this outfit is to choose a cut which is rather tight – if you combine a hoodie with baggy trousers that are too wide (like boyfriend jeans) the outfit can lack shape and form.
The “Cool” Look
If you like it stylish and casual at the same time, you could combine your hoodie with a leather jacket. Then, if you also include a hat and sunglasses, you can create a laid-back sunshine look with a slight edge. Other jackets can work well too, you could add a denim jacket, a bomber jacket or even a trench coat.
The “All Black Everything” Look
For those who prefer something a little more inconspicuous, our All Black Everything Look is just the right prescription. Style a cool black hoodie with black denim or even with trendy black leather leggings. Combine the look with casual accessories, such as a distinctive hat, and you’re well dressed – it’s as simple as that.
The “Dress it up” Look
For something completely different, purchase your hoodie a few sizes too big. Like this, you can quickly turn the oversized (on first look) hoodie into a kind of dress. If you are afraid that the hoodie will still be too short, you can simply pull some shorts under the hoodie to be on the safe side. This look, when combined with sneakers or boots, results in a casual but also innovative outfit. If you like it a little more feminine, you can also combine a thin belt with the “dress” to create a waisted look (pro tip: a waist bag can also be used as a belt).
The “Sweet” Look
If you’d like to make the hoodie a little more girly, you could combine your hooded sweatshirt with playful hair accessories, bags or jewellery (check out the collection from our friends at Capulet for some heavy-weight silver or gold jewellery, handmade in Munich). A more feminine look could also be achieved in combination with a skirt or a dress; there really is no rulebook here.
With or without zipper, plain or print, in classic or bright colours – a hooded sweater will keep you warm all year around but also will never go out of fashion. The hoodie is not only a basic garment of imperious comfort but it’s also a must-have as the centrepiece of near-endless styling combinations. That is why every woman should have at least one hoodie in her wardrobe.
Since a hoodie is a timeless classic, you should pay attention to quality, fine materials and high-quality craftsmanship. Like this, you make sure that the hoodie will stay with you for many years. You can find exception-quality hoodies backed by a sustainable ethos at SANVT.
