How To Wear Hoodies With Style? 


First made in the 1930s, hoodies have come a long way from strictly athletic attire to a garment in almost every guy’s closet. 

Today hoodies can be worn for pretty much any occasion, from the gym to weekend getaways to the office. 

Even better, hoodies a no longer strictly “young guys” garments as long as you choose the right one. 

But even with so many possibilities, some guys wear hoodies with style and swagger, and others just look… regular. 

In this article, we’re teaching you how to fall into the first group! 

Styling a hoodie 

Whether you’re wearing a pullover or a zip-up hoodie, it can be dressed up and dressed down. 

Either way, you always want the best quality and fit, so always choose trusted brands such as the pullover hoodies by Fresh Clean Threads that have great affordable options.

While pullover hoodies are considered more suitable for smart-casual and semi-formal situations, you can easily make a zip-up work too. 

Fitted and loose

Pullover and zip-up hoodies can be loose, fitted, or oversized. 

Pullovers come in all these styles, and zip-ups are more commonly fitted. 

If you’re planning to layer your hoodie under, e.g., a jacket, opt for a fitted version, so it doesn’t scrunch and bulk up underneath. 

Loose and oversized hoodies are better for exercise and casual occasions.

Hoodie outfit ideas 

The good thing about styling a hoodie is that it goes with many things you probably already have. 

Wear it under an unstructured blazer or sport coat and chinos for smart-casual looks, a denim jacket or puffer vest and jeans for the weekend, and with cargo pants and a flannel shirt for somewhere in between.

Here are a few more styling ideas for those extra swagger points.

An all-black look 

You can never go wrong with an all-black look! Pair your slim-fit hoodie with straight or skinny black jeans, and choose white sneakers and a white beanie as color accents. 

This outfit also calls for a bomber or leather jacket and sunnies.

With trench or overcoat

We love the combination of the casual hoodie and business-smart overcoat or trenchcoat. 

We recommend choosing a slim-fit version to ensure it doesn’t bunch up under the coat. 

Don’t be afraid to work with colors; a moss green or chocolate coat will look great with a grey or black hoodie and grey or navy chinos. 

And if you’re styling a cashmere hoodie, you can even wear it with thick wool trousers here.

Choose Chukkas or Chelsea boots as footwear. 

With a denim shearling jacket 

A denim shearling jacket might be enough to get you through winter if you live in a relatively warm climate. 

And a hoodie under it is the best combination! As it’s a casual look, feel free to go for bright and happy colors, e.g., mustard green, red, or even purple. 

Simple black jeans or cargo pants and white leather sneakers will be the perfect finish for this laid-back look.

With joggers and a parka 

There are days when you can’t be bothered to wear jeans or anything even remotely formal. And those days call for athleisure. 

The good thing is that comfy hoodies and joggers are still in style, so you can snuggle in that soft, cozy fabric.

Go for an oversized hoodie and same-color joggers, or pair classic colors like navy and white or black and grey. If you’re not a street fashion fan, you can opt for a slim-fit zipper hoodie and tailored joggers.

Either way, you want thicker, heavier fabrics to stay warm and comfortable. 

Wear sneakers or snow boots as footwear, a warm parka, and a beanie, and you’re ready for any winter weather.
