Back in the '70s, popularized by the hip-hop culture, men's hoodies were often worn by athletes, graffiti artists, break dancers and rappers. There was also a time when they were something that would instantly mark you out as a would-be robber or an all-around thief. Now this same sportswear staple which once had the potential to send passers-by straight to the other side of the street is a major street-style item.
Men's Hoodies: Everything You Should Know About
Below are a few tips you could use at your disposal to find and style this cool clothing item.
How to Wear Men's Hoodies?
Believe it or not, men's hoodies are surprisingly versatile!
When used as part of a layered look, they can look very casual. To get this look right, wear a zip-up hoodie over a simple white crew-neck T-shirt along with slim jeans and a pair of white trainers.
For a comfortable yet cool look, wear your hoodie with a black leather jacket on top along and black or indigo jeans. For this look, you can experiment with hoodies in different colours and combine them with a pair of leather or suede Chelsea boots to polish up this look.
To nail a sophisticated look with this athleisure, try a mid-weight grey hoodie with a charcoal grey suit. You can complete this look with white lace-up sneakers in place of your formal shoes.
To go full athleisure, team a black hoodie with black, fitted joggers. Slip-on a pair of running sneakers when wearing this fit to the gym.
The denim jacket with a hoodie is a combination that is not going to go out of fashion. You can wear a washed-out denim jacket with your neutral-coloured hoodie. For a classic laid-back look, combine this outfit with jeans and boots.
To make your trousers look less formal, hoodies in neutral colours and sneakers can come handy. This unconventional combination is perfect for individualistic men who like to show off their fashion sense. However, to balance the neutral tone of the hoodie, you should only use dark trousers like black, dark blue and dark grey. Those who want to make this outfit a bit more elegant can wear the suit blazer on top.
How to find the right Men's Hoodies?
When buying a hoodie, look for pure cotton material for maximum quality and durability. Go for a timeless, versatile design in a colour that complements your wardrobe to get the maximum use out of your hoodie. Get a fitted hoodie for a finer look.
