The layering trick that’s comfy, on-trend and super cool

We all know hoodies and sweatpants have been a hot trend recently, and while I love the look, I’ve never really been a hoodie kind of person. And, it’s a little tricky given my 5’1″ curvy frame 😉 But recently, the fashion girls are proving me wrong because many cute looks right now includes a hoodie! In fact, I spotted the best outfit while in line the other day at the grocery store. It may have been the faux leather puffer that caught my eye, but layered underneath was a simple black hoodie worn with leggings and this white sneaker. It looked comfy, on-trend and super cool!

All of this made me realize how important a hoodie is for completing all your outfits right now. The trick is to keep it simple, and find one in black, gray, camel or white that’s not too bulky. If you’re up for a matching bottom, even better because you’ll have outfits for days and look super stylish! Keep reading to see the hoodie edit, and 3 fresh outfit ideas!

Hoodie edit

As I mentioned above, finding a hoodie or two in black, gray, camel or white will help you put together many cool outfits; you’ll look a little more elevated by using these sophisticated, neutral colors. And if you find a matching jogger, that’s even better! I love this Vince wool/cashmere zip front hoodie and this J.Crew one too. I just recently picked up this gray one (specifically to layer under my faux leather puffer) and I’ve listed a bunch more for you below!

Nordstrom, $149


Vince, $395


Caslon, $69
