In cold conditions, the hoodie was created to keep sportsmen warm and dry. Hip-hop culture, skaters, snowboarders, enraged young adults, stag parties, university students, and (most importantly) the runway have all embraced it since then. The hoodie's comeback signifies that we've reached the pinnacle of athleisure. It was just a matter of time until menswear got its hands on the near-century-old staple, having successfully approached premium sportswear in its various manifestations.
To get into the looks now, here are 5 different ways to wear your soco hoodies!
Style 1: AN ATHLEISURE LOOK
You can count on us to be ardent cheerleaders whenever comfort and coolness go hand in hand. Such is the case with athleisure, and thanks to those astute menswear designers, you won't come off as someone who was too lazy to change out of their workout clothes.
Style 2: WITH A LEATHER JACKET
It's fine to stick to more familiar territory if you're not sold on the high-low mix (it's not for everyone). A leather jacket and hoodie combo is one of those low-octane combinations that will show the world you know how to wear hoodies season after season.
Style 3: A LAYERED LOOK
Don't believe that wearing a hoodie is all about making a statement, as much as we're extolling the virtues of doing so. The hoodie can be surprisingly unobtrusive when worn as part of a layered ensemble. Wear a zip-up hoodie over a plain white crew-neck T-shirt, then add an overcoat or jacket, tight trousers, and a pair of brand-new shoes to complete the appearance.
Style 4: WITH TAILORED TROUSERS
A hoodie worn with a pair of smart pants is your best choice for a somewhat less committed method to mix professional and casual. It's another simple method to stay out of the dreaded overgrown adolescent region. Choose a hoodie in a neutral color, then combine it with a pair of trousers and sports luxe sneakers to complete the appearance. Try a pattern on the bottom half, like pinstripes or checks, if you're feeling daring.
Style 5: WITH TAILORING IN GENERAL
You're channeling a "style" and quickly marking yourself out as a card-carrying member of Club Menswear if you learn how to wear hoodies with a suit or blazer. That's not to say you shouldn't try this high-low mix. Try a mid-weight gray hoodie with a charcoal gray suit and white lace-up sneakers instead of your usual work shoes to master the how to wear hoodies via the sports-meets-suit look.
