Fashionista NOW: Trendy Hooded Outerwear Fashion Inspiration

Trendy hooded outerwear styles to sport this season just for you!

Anyone can wear a hoodie. From the CEO of Facebook to your local repairman, hooded tops extend to all. For fashionistas, any piece of clothing presents the opportunity for styling it up.

Hoodies refer to hooded sweatshirts and they have been part of lounge/casual wear for the longest time in the contemporary world. Hoodies embody the casual spirit of clothing. But like any inanimate object whose value is neutral by itself, it easily becomes associated with the wearer’s intent where the negative usually stands out.

For a short history of hoodies, visit my previous post on the Zuckerberg trend HERE.

Luckily, the fashion world takes itself ever so lightly that hoods on clothing are just that; they are functional and can be turned into a statement-maker if donned correctly.

Of course, there is not a single ‘correct’ rule of law in fashion as the scene is bursting with subjective creativity. With any hooded outerwear, the key lies in smart layering and being aware of the shape, print and color that you want to center or highlight upon. And this invariably depends upon your size, taste and fancy.

Without further ado, let’s trawl the fashion imagery below:

hooded coat | Jen A.

A comfy hooded coat with a relaxed silhouette is a perfect outerwear of choice to layer over an outfit that is dressy or casual. The hood protects the wearer from the elements while the color makes a statement. I find the loose cloak-y vibe mysterious for no reason. With a bulky outerwear, it’s wise to keep the layers underneath fitted to avoid putting on illusory pounds.

hooded denim | Jacqueline Lee

A hooded denim jacket is an all-year relevant staple. It can dress up any casual look. A topper for any lazy tank-and-jeans combo. Jacqueline lets her pants make the visual statement with the B&W triangle motif while the rest of her outfit is kept muted in shape and color.

hooded cardigan | Anna Belle

I love long cardigans and have made a mention of them in a previous post. A long cardigan + a hood = a RAD combo, I squeal in delight. Anna Belle’s chic outfit is made comfortable with the layering but the silhouette is kept fitted via the long cardigan that it is still appropriate for the office or brunch.

cashmere hoodie | Lindsey Kawamura

Instead of using a hoodie as a layering piece. Get creative and layer a sheer floral track jacket over a gray hoodie to amp up the style factor of a gray and black outfit color palette. Comfy and sporty luxe all in one go.

khaki hooded sweatshirt | Kasia Z.

Tis’ the season for both sunny day wear and chilly weather wear combo. Layer a long khaki hooded sweatshirt over a black crop top and jeans. Keep the color scheme classic and accessories minimalist and you’re good to go.

hooded sweater | Hil Mistry

A slouchy and oversized hooded sweater in navy has been part of too many forgettable casual outfits. Kick it up a notch by injecting color, print and shine the way Hital artfully does it.
