How to choose the perfect hoodie
A hoodie was once an oversized piece that was really only worn in casual settings. Now, it is a trendy piece that if chosen correctly can be a fashionable addition to your closet.
Size is important when selecting a hoodie, as they are a piece that can flood, overwhelm or unflattering your frame if not selected with size in mind. If you’re a bit on the shorter side, opt for a hoodie that has a slimmer fit and that hits you no lower than your below your belt and at the right spot along your wrist. If you’re a bit taller, you can go for a longer line, but it is crucial to double-check that when you reach up, the hoodie doesn’t show your midsection.
The most common style of hoodie that we see for men is the pullover hoodie. You can style up your hoodie with a third piece, such as a jacket or a pair of shoes, best if sneakers or boots.
The fit of your hoodie is important, and quality can really make all the difference in your look. Designer hoodies are everywhere and are the hottest trend right now, in fact, the best online stores like for example, Luisaviaroma carry all of the major designers and brands, even the ones designed by Balmain for men.
How to style a hoodie
With the upcoming cooler months, the hoodie is an item to reach for day-to-day wear as well as to pair underneath winter jackets for some extra warmth, comfort, and style.
- For a casual look, you can always pair a hoodie with jeans. A hoodie with paired with jeans and sneakers is an easy go-to. For a cooler day, you can add a denim jacket over your hoodie. Just remember to break up the color at some point in your outfit, whether it is with a second color or a texture.
- For a more elevated casual look, add a modern bomber jacket or leather jacket over your hoodie with a sneaker or boot.
- For a smart-casual look, pair a thin dark hoodie with a blazer or smarter jacket. Paired with dark denim and a nice sneaker (a designer sneaker is a great addition!) or a formal shoe creates a more elevated, but still comfortable and trendy look.
- For a stylish look on those cold days, add a hoodie underneath a pea coat. A pea coat is a classic coat that many men already have in their wardrobe for more formal occasions. By wearing a hoodie underneath, it can actually make the pea coat more casual and wearable for day-to-day looks.
It is important to remember that regardless of which style you are going for that you choose a hoodie that fits you properly. You also want to balance it out with the rest of your outfit, so if you have a loose hoodie, pair it with a pair of jeans or joggers that are more fitted.
The hoodie is a trend that gives men the option to have a comfortable piece that can be worn alone for a casual look or add a bit of casualness to a tailored outfit. It is a comfortable and welcomed trend!
