Hoodies have been on somewhat of a roller coaster ride in the style department over the years. Going from ‘at home only’ attire to a major streetwear success, the sweatshirt has seen a major resurgence since 2018.

Now, though, designers have decided that the comfy athleisure item is back – and more versatile than ever. From Vetements, Off-White, Gucci, Balenciaga, Coach and even classic Celine, there’s not a fashion house which hasn’t got in on the action. Here’s how the style set are wearing the luxury outerwear so you too can add the humble hoodie back into your wardrobe rotation.

A hoodie layered under any form of outerwear looks stylish, but if you want to ace the street style scene, go for a preppy blazer over a classic hoodie.

The contrast is not only a sure smart-casual winner, but is also a great way to get extra wear out of your favourite blazer in the winter months.
