What To Wear With a Zip-Up Hoodie?
A zip-up hoodie is an irreplaceable item in every guy’s entire wardrobe. But they’re incredibly convenient in the colder months of the fall and winter when you need to navigate between the chilly weather outside and warm temperatures indoors. A hoodie is versatile and can be styled for both leisurely weekends and every day at the office, so let’s take a look at some of the best ways to wear it!
Zip-up hoodies are comfortable and simple. They’re perfect for casual evenings at home with friends or grabbing a beer at the pub. Here’s how you can style them for leisurely occasions.
The simplest way of wearing a hoodie is to pair it with your favorite jeans. Choose contrasting colors, e.g., a bright hoodie and dark blue or black jeans, as monochrome combinations can often be too risky.
Layer the hoodie on top of a short-sleeve or long-sleeve crewneck tee, add comfortable shoes such as sneakers, Chelsea, or heavy snow boots in winter, throw on a parka, and you’re good to go!
With a graphic tee
Fall and winter can make it challenging to show off your favorite graphic tees. That’s where the zip-up hoodie comes to the rescue!
Wear it on top of your beloved band t-shirt or pair it with a more toned-down “artsy” tee; choose jeans, cargo pants, or chinos for your bottoms, and finish the look with warm combat boots.
With a flannel shirt
Another great outfit for the weekend and your days off is wearing your zip-up hoodie over a flannel shirt. This gives 90s skater boy vibes, but in a good way, if you choose the proper size shirt and hoodie.
The look calls for Chelsea or Combat boots and jeans, but it would also work with chinos and sneakers. Don’t overdo it with the colors; wear a navy, black, or grey hoodie and bottoms if you opt for a colorful shirt.
A zip-up hoodie is a perfect alternative for a blazer if your office allows a more relaxed dress code. It’s also great for working from home or any other occasion that’s not too formal yet not too chill.
With a button-down shirt
Wear a dark, classic, tailored hoodie over your button-down shirt and chinos for a comfortable yet put-together look. Chukka or Brogue shoes will look excellent here, but you can wear Chelsea boots too. Choose classic colors such as a navy, black, or grey zip-up hoodie from high-quality brands for a polished look.
With a blazer
Yes, you can wear your hoodie under a blazer for work! It looks great when the hoodie is slim, lightweight, and doesn’t bulk up. We recommend a thicker, heavier blazer for winter to keep you warm even in low temperatures. Choose Chelsea boots or Brogues for footwear and slacks or chinos for bottoms. This is a fantastic modern look for every day, and we love it!
What to wear with a zip-up hoodie: with a suit
And now, we’re kicking it up a notch and telling you that you can wear a hoodie under a suit. Isn’t it exciting? Finding the right suit may take time, but you’ll be highly rewarded. Opt for a black slim-fit hoodie and a looser-fit suit. Because this is an unusual look, you can feel more creative with the suit colors.
We love brown corduroy, checkered grey wool, or navy striped suits as a way to make an impression. But you can, of course, stick to the classic all-black look and add white leather sneakers as an accent. Otherwise, go for Chelsea boots or Chukkas!
