Stay in Trend with Thick Hoodies this Winter!

A hoodie may not be your most stylish garment, but it is likely among the most useful and cozy. The cozy, baggy clothing is a must-have for any dapper modern man. You can look great in thick hoodies around the house, but if you pair them with the right bottoms and shoes, you can also rock them as a part of a casual weekend ensemble.

If you plan on leaving the house in your sweatpants and a hooded sweatshirt, you should probably read this article first. Learn the proper technique to wear a hoodie so that it is as fashionable as it is comfortable.

What Exactly is Thick Hoodie?

A thick hoodie can be any garment with such a hood, including but not limited to sweatshirts, jumpers, and jackets. Thick hoodies are comfortable and easy to move in because they are baggy and usually made from cotton.

The hood also serves the dual purpose of protecting the wearer's head from the elements (both cold and wet) when necessary. Thick hoodies typically have one or more large front pockets that can be used for storage or to rest the wearer's hands.

Thick Hoodie Style Guide:

Here are four tried-and-true methods from fashion insiders for getting a head start on the trend.

Athletic Look

You can count on us to be the first in line if practicality and good looks are available in combination. Put on a black hoodie, some black-fitting sweatpants, and some simple leather sneakers to complete the athleisure look.

Pair With Layering

Though it may seem out of place for a weekend outfit, this double-breasted coat is quite versatile. A hoodie is all that's needed to ease the tension. On the next chilly Sunday, try layering a white hoodie under a black or brown coat for a casually cool look. Remember to round off the look with additional laid-back pieces, such as baggy pants and sneakers.

Nothing can go wrong with Denim and Parka Jackets

Pairing a hoodie with a parka is a great way to stay warm and dry in winter without sacrificing your sense of style. Wear a black hoodie under a black parka for a subtle look. Pair with a pair of drawstring pants or tailored pants for a polished casual-trend look.

It's easy to look relaxed and stylish by teaming a hoodie with a denim jacket. Try teaming the jacket with a white or grey hooded sweater for a laid-back yet put-together style. Add a pair of skinny jeans and some sneakers to complete your look.

Pair with Tailored Clothing

Wear a hoodie with a pair of dress pants for a less drastic take on the smart-casual trend. It's a simple method of avoiding the awkwardly overgrown teen years. Or try a medium-weight grey hoodie with a charcoal grey suit and white lace-up sneakers in place of your regular work shoes to nail the hoodie fashion via the sports-meets-suit look.

Bottom Line

The best quality and durability in thick hoodies are found in 100% cotton patterns (bonus points for brushed cotton and loopback construction). If you want to get the most use out of your hoodie, resist the temptation to follow the latest fashion trends. Instead, choose a classic style that you can wear with various looks in a neutral color. However, a fitting hoodie is a fantastic choice when you want to avoid seeming sloppy.
