How to Style a Hoodie: 5 Ways to Wear 5 Types of Hoodies
There are plenty of options when it comes to hoodies other than the classic pullover style. You can opt for zip-up jackets with hoods or oversized, sleeveless, and fitted hoodies. Here are some styling tips for each hoodie:
- Pullover hoodies: this is the most popular hoodie to style because it can be the staple piece of your entire outfit or it can be layered with another staple piece style. You can layer your hoodies with leather or denim jackets, flannels or even peacoats to dress it up. If you opt for an oversized hoodie, you can pair it with matching sweatpants, shorts or denim jeans.
- Zip-up jackets with hoods: similar to pullover styling tips, you can layer your zip-up hoodie jackets with other layering pieces such as bomber jackets. Another great option to elevate your casual hoodie jacket is to pair it with cargo sweatpants and puffer vests.
- Sleeveless hoodies: sleeveless hoodies are more popularly worn as gym attire but can also be worn casually. If you are someone who runs hot and prefers light layers, sleeveless hoodies are the way to go.
- Fitted hoodies: fitted hoodies are also commonly worn as gym attire but are interchangeable enough to be worn casually as well. They are slimmer and much more lightweight so you can dress it up with button-up coats or blazers.
When layering a T shirt, sweater or jacket over a hoodie, go with the fitted hoodie that's true to size. The rule of thumb for layering clothing is to stay true to size (fitted) with the pieces that are closest to your skin. As you add layers, you might consider going up a half-size or full-size, for your own comfort.
