With loungewear and all manner of comfy attire taking on new importance in 2020, there are a number of loungewear staples I never thought I'd consider being rather chic until now. Along with the joggers and sweats that experiencing a worldwide comeback, hoodies are the item I'm most surprised by. To be honest, I always wrote them off as being too "frumpy" to ever look chic, but as fashion people are recently proving to me, the comfy layering piece is far more versatile and stylish than it once appeared to me to be.
Droves of stylish women are getting very creative with their hoodies, putting together outfits that are both on-trend, comfy, and in some cases, downright polished. Since comfort and looking cool are always important (but perhaps even more so in the present moment), we rounded up the best recent looks to illustrate the many hoodie possibilities.
Keep scrolling to see how to wear a hoodie according to the outfits we're into and shop the pieces to re-create each look.
I love this look because the leather pants add a sleek and edgy vibe that instantly updates even the most basic plain hoodie and work as a canvas for on-trend accessories like strappy sandals, or if you're a street style star, the newest Bottega Veneta bag.
The ultimate blend of cool comfort and work-approved polish is this combination of a hoodie and a tailored pantsuit. Try this out and I promise your most stylish coworker and your boss will both be impressed.
Going for that all-over comfy vibe? We love a coordinating sweatshirt (especially one in a fun color) and think that layering a long jacket or coat on top is the key to making it street style–approved.
