The Return Of The Hoody: Yep, This 90s Classic Is Back!

Forget skater girls and guys, the new hoody fan club so happens to feature some of the Fash Pack’s finest. Get ready for some serious style envy.

Thanks to the likes of uber cool label, Vetements, the humble hoody is firmly back on our fashion radars for early autumn and we couldn’t be happier; anything this snug deemed stylish is totally okay by us! We’re talking soft jersey fabric with a warm fleecy lining. Yep, we’re already picturing how we’ll be styling this cosy classic with the rest of our winter wardrobe and feeling pretty smug tbh. Here’s how to wear it…

1. Day Dressing

Although sportswear is a big trend for the season try giving your hoodies a more wearable (and less Sporty Spice) approach by swapping out the joggers in place of a pair of white skinnies or indigo kickflare jeans. Simples.

2. Go Girly

You can’t mix sporty staples with glam going out gear right? Wrong! Whether plain or printed a hoody will totally work with sparkles and sequins. Try working it into your party-wear wardrobe for your next BNO. Trust us.

3. Flip Reverse It

If you have seen Urban Outfitter’s AW16 campaign imagery you’ll know that the fresh new way to wear the hoody is by layering it underneath anything it will fit under; we’re talking slip dresses, dungarees, pinafores. Yep, *anything*

4. Dreamy DIY

Take a page out of this fashion maven’s style guide and try customising oversized hooded sweatshirts to make them relevant RN. Source one from your local thrift store or charity shop, cut off the sleeves, style with trending accessories and you’ve got yourself one cool AF jumper-dress.
