Wear either indoors or outdoors, with hoodies and sweatshirts, you are guaranteed to tackle the cold and heat whilst looking stylish.
When to wear hoodies or sweatshirts
Hoodies are a great garment to have in your wardrobe, whether you are looking for lounge gear or something a little more special. The high street has many great styles, with colour, zips and fabrics all playing a decisive factor in how you choose to wear your hoodie. Go for cotton in the summer months and cool cashmere or wool in winter, to look sharp in the colder months. Sweatshirts are great if you are looking to spice up your wardrobe, without buying a whole new outfit, as a simple colour change can really make a difference.
Work: Hoodies such as the ones offered by Lanvin and Givenchy can work with your professional outfit as they are clean and understated. The working man's weapon of choice when it comes to office dress code tends to be the trusty sweatshirt. With a range of styles and colours, you can make your suit or outfit stand out from the crowd with a simple sweatshirt. Polo Ralph Lauren offers classic cuts that will impress your colleagues for their simplicity and on trend colour palette. If you're looking for something a little more original, why not try Paul Smith's designs - a great talking point over dinner with your friends.
Day: Choose a loose hoodie to relax in by day. Many designs are available on the market - from the discreet blues and blacks, to design sensations, like those offered by A Bathing Ape and Superdry. If you choose to wear something that will stand out from the crowd, brands like Supremebeing will be right up your street. Sweatshirts are brilliant, especially crew necks, if you are looking for a casual top to go with jeans.
Night: Hoodies are great for nights out, as they can really show off an outfit - greens, blues and oranges are great colours to make a statement in. If you are looking for something a bit less high fashion, go for greys and charcoals to go undercover. Sweatshirts in cashmere and wool will keep you warm whilst making you look stylish. They go well with dark trousers or faded jeans to add a touch of gentleman chic to your look.
Trendy: Accompany your hoodie or sweatshirt with trainers for a downtown, weekend look or smart shoes, such as loafers or pointed brogues, to smarten up an outfit.
