Hoodies Guide: Styles and How to Wear the Cozy Trend of Autumn 2023
When you think of a basic garment like a hoodie, it's often associated with a casual outfit, for going to the gym or lounging at home when you want to be comfortable. The truth is, it's not that simple. The hoodie is undoubtedly a simple and versatile garment, but that doesn't mean you can't wear it to make even the chicest and most contemporary outfits feel cozy.
We've seen hoodies worn in a thousand different ways, from leather skirts and thigh-high boots to matching them with blazers and straight-leg pants. Thanks to their typically straightforward design, you can experiment with various combinations, enriching your outfits with unique and eye-catching accessories.
Women's Hoodies 2023: Styles to Transform Your Look
But what are the trendy styles, and more importantly, how can you wear such a basic piece to create an appealing look?
The Best Hoodies for Autumn-Winter 2023-2024
1. The Gray Crew Neck Hoodie
We talked about the gray hoodie just a few days ago, explaining how such a basic and typically sporty item has become a must-have for autumn-winter 2023. It's not just for casual looks but also for more elegant ensembles. You can pair it with wide-leg trousers and sandals, matching accessories, or with high sock boots and a short sequin skirt.
- Levi's: The first model is from Levi's, in light gray mélange with elasticized hem and cuffs. The sleeve hangs slightly, and it features a red logo detail on the front. The fit is standard, so if you prefer to wear it loosely, we recommend going up one or two sizes.
- Zara: The Zara hoodie already has an oversized cut with extra-long sleeves and a classic round neckline. It features a small blue print on the chest, an application on the sleeve, and a maxi print on the back.
2. The Cropped Hoodie
The cropped hoodie is the ideal choice when you want to emphasize the waistline, perfect for wearing with high-waisted pieces that leave a bit of the stomach exposed. Drawing inspiration from the two looks in the photos, you can wear it with a pleated skirt and high boots or with straight-leg leather pants, an oversized bomber, and sculptural heeled ankle boots.
- Jack & Jones: The Jack & Jones model is in beige cotton blend with slightly brushed fabric, remaining very soft on the inside. In addition to the hood, it features a practical adjustable drawstring at the hem, allowing you to decide whether to wear it with a snug hem or let it hang loose.
- MM6 Maison Margiela: The MM6 Maison Margiela offers a model in black cotton blend with a "very cropped" cut, with the hem reaching just below the chest. It has a drawstring hood and a pendant logo embroidered on the front.
3. The Oversized Colored Hoodie
Cozy is cool, especially for those who like to be daring and create unique and sometimes even eccentric combinations. This is the perfect choice for facing colder days, providing complete coverage and protection, thanks to the practical hood, even in case of rain (when paired with a stylish waterproof trench coat).
- Burberry: The blue model in the photo is from Burberry, featuring a blue plaid pile fabric with an adjustable hood with a drawstring. It's made from a wool blend and has two handy patch pockets on the sides and an adjustable cord hem.
- Anine Bing: As an alternative, we have the Anine Bing hoodie in pastel yellow cotton with a classic hood and dropped shoulder. The contrasting 3D logo on the front is made of pile fabric.
4. The Zip-Up Hoodie
The zip-up hoodie is a particularly versatile piece, ideal for layering your look. You can also wear it zipped up to create a layered look, especially under a leather jacket with the hood outside or to complete a trendy street style look with a pleated skirt and sock loafers.
- Carhartt: As an alternative to the black hoodie in the photo, we've selected the Carhartt model. It's made from warm and heavy pile fabric, with a roomy fit and a straight cut, featuring a practical kangaroo pocket to keep your hands warm. The fit is slightly loose, with a drawstring hood and a small logo appliqué on the pocket.
- H&M: H&M's cream-colored hoodie is made from a brushed cotton blend fabric, with a double-layer hood and drawstring. The shoulder remains low, and it features a contrasting black embroidery on the chest, with a double kangaroo pocket.
5. The Classic Hooded Sweatshirt
You probably already have at least one hooded sweatshirt in your closet, maybe stolen from your brother or boyfriend, or one you've kept since your school days. Despite being designed as a casual item, we've seen it paired with elegant pencil skirts and high-heeled boots, often with a blazer.
- Uniqlo: Uniqlo's black hoodie has an oversized fit and a minimalist design, with a lined hood and two practical patch pockets on the sides.
- Entire Studios: Entire Studios offers a gray model with a distressed effect and a unique cut, with an extra-long dropped shoulder and a wide and straight silhouette.
We couldn't miss an alternative in gray, which is among the season's trends. That's why we've selected AMI Paris's soft-fitting hoodie with a drawstring hood. It features the Ami De Coeur logo embroidered in red on the chest. As the final model, there's Saint Laurent's hoodie in electric blue with a multi-color embroidered logo. It has an oversized fit, a maxi hood, and a large kangaroo front pocket.
