The hoodie fashion is a garment that has stood the test of time. It’s known for its practicality, warmth, and comfort. But this wardrobe staple deserves to be styled beyond the casual. These are some pointers on how you can do just that…
Hoodie Fashion Tips
Make sure your hoodie fits well. Not only should it not be too baggy or tight but it should also sit close enough to your body so it doesn’t allow wind in when fastened up. The arms should reach just below your wrists and any excess material in the sleeves can be rolled up into neat little cuffs. Also, check that the neckline doesn’t rise up xo the weekend clothing beyond chin level when zipped all the way up if it does then ask the shop assistant for a smaller size.
Three Main Options Of Hoodie fashion
As you can see in the illustration below, there are three main options when it comes to styling your hoodie-pulling it on over your head (as if you were putting on a T-shirt), wearing it unzipped with front pockets exposed, or leaving both of them hidden by fastening the top underneath your chin.
The same rules apply to styling hoodies as they do all other kinds of clothes. When choosing tops and bottoms to wear with yours don’t pick anything that’s too tight otherwise this would stretch out the material across your shoulders and back which will make you look far more significant than necessary. To avoid an overly boxy silhouette try pairing up-fitted long-sleeved tops (whether knitted or woven) with slim-leg jeans and trainers. If you want to dress up your hoodie, go for a flared skirt and heels instead of fitted bottoms.
A favorite way of styling
I love to keep things casual so my favorite way of styling this garment is by throwing it on over a tank top and boyfriend jeans (tucked into knee-high boots). The fact that there’s no waist definition makes you look slimmer as this creates an unbroken line from shoulders to ankles. For those who don’t like showing their lower arms, simply tuck the sleeves under the elasticized cuffs of your sweatshirt before fastening them around your wrists.
This will instantly make your body appear longer and leaner because you won be drawing attention away from your face with a pair of puffy sleeves.
If you’re feeling adventurous, why not pair your hoodie with a long skirt and pumps? If done tastefully, this look is extremely elegant and the slender silhouette it creates will elongate your legs.
Fitted And Loose Garments
Remember that dressing up can be as simple as adding jewelry, a belt, or brooch to a laid-back outfit. A hoodie works really well if layered over both fitted and loose garments simply because there’s no waist to define so you can play around with both kinds of silhouettes.
It’s also an excellent choice for those who don’t want to show off their body but still want to create an alluring look by drawing attention to their face with flattering necklines, statement jewelers, and feminine accessories.
