When it comes to casual wear, it really doesn’t get better than a hoodie! Chances are you already have several of the comfortable everyday staple in your closet. It’s a great choice for pretty much any non-formal occasion.
Running between your government and bio class on campus? Grab a hoodie! It’s after dinner and your adorable pup Chewy is begging for a walk? Throw on a hoodie! Or you’re having a late start to your Saturday morning after an even later end to your Friday night (whether hanging out with friends or binge watching a new Netflix series there’s no judgment here), and the delicious cappuccino and toasted bagel with cream cheese on the side from your favorite coffee shop around the corner is calling your name? Splash some water on your face and zip up a nice comfortable hoodie!
In today’s busy times, we should all step out in comfort unless the situation specifically calls for the opposite. Unless absolutely required, there’s no reason to not go for the endless snuggle that is a hoodie. The all season outerwear with the convenient hood is not only simple, it’s brilliant. But understandably, when the occasion requires a change, we must do. Say, what’s a few hours of itchy fabric in order to attend your sweet cousin Julie’s fall wedding? Your slight discomfort is so worth the memories, from cousin Julie’s smile to Uncle Mike’s signature dance moves!
But as much as well all love comfort we don’t want to walk around looking too comfortable. Coming off too relaxed gives off an impression that you just don’t care. And as you only get one chance to make a first impression, simply not caring about your appearance is as much of a fashion faux-pa, a style no-no, as socks and sandals.
So how do we dress up the dress down hoodie? There are many options available to you: color coordinate your hoodie and footwear, source hoodies in fun patterns and shades, even the age old fresh press will improve your look (who doesn’t love ironed clothes?). But if you’d really like to elevate your look, and not compromise comfort for style, you’ll want to try something that no one is doing but everyone will copy once they see how cool you look.
The big tip? Tie the hoodie strings! Yes the secret to standing out in a crowd and impressing the masses when you are at your most casual lies in the little companions of what gives the “hoodie” its name: the hoodie strings!
