If you are under the impression that men’s hoodies – or hooded sweatshirts – are nothing more than a poorly-cut duffel sweater with uninteresting prints, it’s time for you to think again. Hoodies have always been the go-to piece of clothing for many people. You can throw on a sweatshirt over a pair of jeans and know you’d look good. Although they have been a very casual piece due to their athletic undertones, just like a knitted sweater, they keep you warm, make for great layering, and are versatile enough for dressing up or down. With designers giving their own twists to this comfy garment, hoodies are here to stay.
How to Choose The Colors of Your Hoodies
Choosing your hoodie colors depends to a large extent on the rest of your attire. The great thing about a neutral colored hoodie is that it balances out bold or bright colors. For instance, a white or off-white hoodie would look good with light colored pants and a chequered shirt. A black hoodie would complement a pair of faded jeans and a simple white t-shirt.
The basic rule when it comes to choosing hoodie colors is to keep it simple. Start with light colors like white, grey, blue, or ivory, and move over to darker shades like black, maroon, and navy. That way, you can mix and match your hooded sweatshirts with both neutral colored as well as bright colored clothing.
How to Wear A Hoodie
Men’s hoodies have risen from just gym wear to an everyday wardrobe essential. There is a hooded sweatshirt for every occasion- from floral to abstract prints to solid colors. Today’s men are not afraid to experiment. Hoodies can be used for layering or worn on their own with a simple pair of jeans or chinos for those casual days when you just want comfort without neglecting style. With a hoodie, you can get creative while layering your outfits. You can also use a hoodie to create a fine balance between a smart edge and casualness Try a grey hoodie with burgundy chinos, tan hiking boots and coordinating grey chunky socks for a look that speaks volumes without trying at all.
In colder months, the cardigan-hoodie combo works just as great. A hoodie also works well when worn under a trench coat. Just make sure to not wear a thick hoodie under a trench coat in order to avoid looking stuffed or overweight.
From a brisk day not quite fit for a jacket to one of those occasions when you don’t feel like dressing up in fancy clothes, hoodies will always come to your rescue.
How to Choose A Hoodie
When you want your hoodies to be part of your style statement, you must invest some time and thought into choosing them. If you’re pairing your hoodies with a jacket, coat, or cardigan, make sure your hoodie isn’t longer than the jacket or coat. If you intend to wear your hoodies in summer, check to see if the material is fine linen for maximum comfort.
