The loose-fitting, cozy cotton garment can be dressed up or down. Wear it with well-fitted, tailored crombie coat and a pair of sneakers for an elevated sense of style. This type of outfit fits perfectly with today’s modern trend and you can complete the look with a pair of chic sunglasses. This look, while casual, is certain to turn heads your way. 

Cool

Want to look unique yet still keep it simple? The hoodie is so versatile, you can dress it up or down any way you want. Layer it on, as you would with your sweatshirt over your shirt of choice, and wear it with a pair of contrasting trousers. Wear a simple white shirt underneath if it’s warm outside or use thicker, warmer fabrics for harsher, colder weather. Versatile colors such as beige, blue, white and grey can look great with any pair of trousers and can work for any stylish attitude.

Streetwear

Choose bold hues, think of visible logos and sport relaxed cuts; get as creative as you can and play with the fit and design in accordance with your taste and preference. Hoodie has always been synonymous with streetwear and urban clothing and yes, it is the first thing that comes to mind when you are looking to portray style and elegance in a one-off vibe.
