December is inching closer, and 2016 is poised to go down in fashion history as the year that streetwear reigned supreme. Along with sneakers and trackpants, hoodies are a key piece needed to achieve the look. But that's not to say that hoodies are only useful when it comes to that very specific streetwear aesthetic. As street style has recently proven, the comfy layering piece is far more versatile than it once appeared to be. Stylish women are getting very creative with their hoodies, even putting together outfits that are suitable for the office and date night. Since comfort and looking cool are always important (at least to us), we rounded up the best recent looks to illustrate the many hoodie possibilities. And given that it's officially fall, temperatures will soon warrant the extra layer.
Keep scrolling to see how to wear a hoodie for the most common occasions, and shop our favorites at the end.
While a hoodie may not fly at the most conservative offices, at those where the dress code isn't quite as strict but you still want to look professional, pair your hoodie with polished, structured pieces. We love one layered under a blazer, with menswear-inspired trousers or a sleek pair of velvet heels. For this occasion, we recommend a more fitted hoodie. Tucking it in will add to the polished vibe.
A hoodie can take on an after-dark flair when worn with the right pieces. Try layering it over a slip dress or under a suit or leather jacket. Throw on a pair of heels to dress it up even more.
While this is obviously the easiest occasion to style a hoodie for, fashion girls are getting creative with their off-duty hoodie styling. Most notably, they're layering them under statement outerwear and opting for cool sneakers and flats.
