Hoodies Are the Street Style Secret to Winter Layering
There’s a reason we admire the street style set. Members of the fashion elite have an uncanny ability to take an item that was once dismissed as tacky and make it suddenly relevant again. Who would have imagined that fanny packs, neon and bike shorts would be must-haves? You can also add hoodies to that ever-growing list.
Just like turtlenecks, hooded sweatshirts have become key layering pieces during fashion week. Looking to take that kimono-style wrap jacket into winter? Just layer a hoodie underneath. Longing to participate in the off-the-shoulders jacket trend but too practical to expose yourself to the cold? Slipping on a hoodie makes the trend blizzard-appropriate. Wish your fave winter coat came with a warm hood? Work in a hoodie for instant gratification.
While solid color hoodies are frequently favored on the streets, there’s also room for graphic prints, tie-dye and structured necklines. There are even wool versions you can rock as outerwear (which presents a whole new range of styling opportunities). And designers have gotten in on the action with Lanvin, Moschino, Dries Van Noten and Paco Rabanne all supplying high-end options.
