Uniqlo has the best quality hoodies in my opinion. Their basic ones are inexpensive and excellent quality. This hot pink one I have on is the Uniqlo U version, which as you probably know has Christophe Lemaire as creative director. So you know, designer piece at an affordable price. Hoodies have obviously made their way back into fashion and styling it differently will take you away from douche territory. You know what I’m talking about. You don’t want to look like that loser who threw on a hoodie and went to Tim’s to get a coffee before even sticking that toothbrush in his mouth.
The best way to take your hoodie to the next level? Pair it with something that’s not sweatpants or even jeans. Try a different silhouette. Loose fitting cords, carrot trousers, or in my case, a pleated pair of smart trousers that are slightly cropped. Dress it down (or “up” depending on how you see it) further with some black leather sneakers and you’ve got a look that’s effortless but well put together. Colder weather means you can also layer a few different pieces. I kept everything fairly basic in black and white so I opted for a simple button up underneath. This makes the pink hoodie the focal point. If you want to get cozy, do a turtle neck.
