No longer just the uniform of skate park devotees and 12-year-old boys, the hooded sweatshirt has become a fashion staple in recent seasons.
Chalk it up to the increasing influence streetwear has on high fashion, the influx of tomboy, skater-girl models like Natalie Westling and Binx Walton, and a turn on cool-making runways like Hood By Air and Vetements, but suddenly the humble hoodie has joined the ranks of street-style bait, right up there with Chanel slingbacks and Dior So Real shades.
Not that we’re complaining—it’s a hoodie, which means comfort, ease, and effortlessness, which can’t always be said of other trends the fashion crowd embraces. Plus, a hoodie makes everyone look like they’re not trying too hard, even if it’s paired with thigh-high heeled boots a la Chiara Ferragni in head-to-toe Vetements or with skinnies and sneakers, model-style.
Here, we’ve rounded up 20 ways to wear a hoodie and 10 to shop now.
