Why We Love The Hoody and Shorts Look
From marmite to over-friendly cats, everybody loves to weigh in on love / hate debates and the hoody and shorts look seems to fall decidedly in the middle of this spectrum. With a relaxed vibe, this outfitting is popular with people who embrace the collegiate style. Here are 5 reasons we consider ourselves part of this group and why we love this laidback look…
- Day to night
This cool combo is a great option for a day-to-night casual look. Showing a bit of leg with a snuggly jumper on top, this duo will ensure you’re kept cosy without making you feel like you’re wrapped up like your grandma. Abiding by the time-tested rule of teaming one revealing item with one conserving item, this style will add a timeless athletic tone to your outfitting and keep you looking and feeling your best.
- It’s a year-round mixture
With all sort of hoodies created using a wide assortment of fabric, you’ll easily be able to bag yourself a lightweight or thick hoody to mix and match with depending on the unpredictable British weather. This fusion can be worn through almost every season and is especially appropriate for springtime, because who doesn’t like spending all day outside on warm weekends? So why not try this blend for BBQ’s and garden parties.
- Oversized is bang on-trend
I’ve always loved that effortlessly thrown together look but found it to be anything but effortless. We, as everyone else, are bigggg fans of the oversized look and what’s more boyfriend-chic than an oversized hoody? Teamed with some stylish shorts, we’re sure you’ll be acing that hair-shoved-up, laidback and care-free style that looks so great.
- If you feel comfortable, you’ll act comfortable
This might seem a little less fashion based, but I’ve always felt that if I’m comfortable and confident in what I’m wearing, I act the same way with the company I am in. This style works particularly well if you like to show off your legs, while remaining comfy and warm up top. You’re sure to love showing off your best asset, as well as being kept super snuggly.
- Add some character to your weekend wardrobe
Just like T-shirts, hoodies can add a real dose of character to your outfitting that will make you stand out from the crowd. Whether it’s on the bus or queuing for popcorn, I always find myself reading the backs of hoodies. From University hoodies, a holiday graphic, or a film inspired piece, you can pretty much find a hoody for every single interest or hobby and as they can be a fantastic conversation starter, we say stock up! Whether you go for a collegiate appliqué piece or a versatile plain design, you can’t go far wrong. (Plus, if you’re a series fan like me, a Heisenberg or Redwood Original hoody will make you feel like part of a cool secret fan base.)
We’re clearly smitten with this informal style; however, we’d love to hear what you think. Is the shorts and hoody look only acceptable as you head home from the gym, or is it a cute and sporty option for your off-duty wardrobe?
