Hoodies have been on somewhat of a roller coaster ride in the style department over the years.
Going from 'at home only' attire to a major streetwear success, the sweatshirt has seen a major resurgence in 2018.
From Off-White's chevron print to Kanye West's 'Pablo' slogan hoodie, previous years have seen a few 'it' styles infiltrate the mainstream. Now, though, designers have decided that the comfy athleisure item is back - and more versatile than ever.
From Vetements, Off-White, Gucci, Balenciaga, Coach and even classic Celine, there's not a fashion house which hasn't got in on the action. Here's how the style set are wearing the luxury outerwear in 2018, so you too can add the humble hoodie back into your wardrobe rotation.
Sure, we've all heard of a jumper dress, but what about a hoodie dress?
Celine was just one of the designers to put an oversized spin on the leisurewear item this year. The XL silhouette means you can just throw it on and add a pair of kicks in order to look comfy and cool all day long.
Layer Under A Blazer
A hoodie layered under any form of outerwear looks stylish, but if you want to ace the street style scene, go for a preppy blazer over a classic hoodie.
The contrast is not only a sure smart-casual winner, but is also a great way to get extra wear out of your favourite blazer in the winter months.
Boss A Streetwear Brand
Buying a hoodie emblazoned with the latest must-have logos is a quick and easy way to shine in the style stakes.
You could splash the cash on a Balenciaga, Gucci, Burberry, Off-White or Supreme number. Or, if your purse strings are a little tight, the high street also has some great affordable offerings from the likes of Fila and Champion.
Suit It Up
Add extra sartorial points to the hooded sweatshirt by pairing it under a matching two-set.
Whether you opt for a smart tailored suit or day-appropriate patterned co-ord, or maybe even a little retro double denim, this look is super easy and super effective.
Layer Under A Dress
Most of us have only just got used to the idea of layering a polo-neck under a slip dress, but the fashion set has already taken things one step further by layering the pullover under a variety of frock styles. You have to admit, it's definitely a head-turning look.
Pair With A Midi Skirt
As for the chicest way to wear a hoodie whatever the whether? Wear it with a midi skirt.
For winter, pair an oversized style with a simple midi skirt à la Coach spring/summer 2019. Come spring, switch things up for a contemporary cropped style.More about: | hoodie | Street style
