How much colder can it get outside?  When a simple coat won’t do, we suggest layering hoodies underneath for warm and cozy outdoor outfits.  Take a look at how our favorite street style stars are keeping it casual and cool. All you need are the right details to keep your outfit on the trendy side of the spectrum.

Layering Hoodies T’Werk

A nice alternative to mock necks, you really can get away with this style in the office.  The trick with layering hoodies at work is to refine your shoe and bag choices.  A large animal print tote and chunky ankle boots will add a little extra attitude.  We love mixing greys with neutrals for a warm color combo that is totally cool.

Handsome Prints

A mid-length coat in a smart wool print will also do a lot to dress up an otherwise casual outfit.  Try layering hoodies under double-breasted coats with wide lapels. Houndstooth or plaid coats take distressed denim into the business casual category easily.  Add a ladylike top handle purse to the equation and you’re good to go.

Weather Relationship Issues

Is the weather in that on-again, off-again stage of life?  If you are smart about layering hoodies under your coats, you’ve got the benefit of the instant head or ear protection.  You lose much of your heat through your head so a hoodie can keep you warmer than a turtleneck.  Also, you won’t have to worry about hat head when you’re back indoors.

Beanies + Barrel Jeans

If hat head is less of an issue than heat is, go ahead and double up on your winter layersLayering hoodies over beanies are totally allowed in temperatures below 30 degrees.  Keep your hat the same color as your hoodie for cohesiveness. We love how sharp a black hat and hoodie look under a camel coat.  Bonus points if you add barrel jeans into the mix!

Always Bet on Black

Another way to dress up your hoodie is with the addition of leather.  Try layering hoodies under oversized leather jackets in black or grey.  Make an otherwise tomboyish hoodie instantly sexy or edgy as part of an all-black ensemble.  If you opt for an oversized jacket, we recommend keeping your pant legs on the slimmer side of the equation.  Go for cropped high-waters if you’re getting over skinnies.

Hot For Pink

Don’t feel stuck in neutrals!  This winter, try layering hoodies with brighter colors into your camels and beiges.  The end result will pop and sizzle as you work your way towards becoming a street style star yourself.

Under The Hood

Be prepared when a light snow flurry or quick rain session strikes.  You can’t go wrong with layering hoodies under coats and jackets that have flat lapels.  Hoodies are so comfy and snuggly it’s hard to change out of one once you have it on. Why bother?  Upgrade your coat quotient and live life in comfort.
