Tips on elevating this casual classic
how to style a hoodie

Cold weather means cozy, and cozy means pullover hoodies. It’s just math!

After moving from the Bay Area to Chicago this year, I can attest that men all across the country reach for a stylish, soft hoodie at even the hint of a cold day.

But there’s a difference between a hoodie outfit that looks like you threw it on in the dark as you venture out in search of a breakfast sandwich, and a thoughtfully-put together, casually stylish hoodie outfit.

Let’s make sure you know how to style a hoodie so you definitively fall in the latter camp.

First thing’s first?

You’ve gotta start with a quality hoodie sweatshirt.

You want an option that’s elevated without compromising comfort.

In this latest installment of the 5 Days, 5 Ways series, I’m using the Flint & Tinder 10-Year Pullover, available only on Huckberry. 

With clean lines, a structured fit, and raglan sleeves that allow full range of movement whether you’re throwing the pigskin or reaching for a book on the top shelf of the library, this is a hoodie you can feel good about. 

Not only does it flatter in a way that you didn’t think was possible with a kangaroo pocket, but it’s homegrown in America. 

The cotton comes from the Mississippi Delta; the fleece is made in South Carolina. The twill-reinforced tape holding everything in its place hails from Philadelphia (like me!), and it all comes together in Los Angeles. 

Plus, this bad boy comes in six solid (in both senses of the word) color options, so there is certainly one that will fit just right in your wardrobe. And once you do find your perfect shade and wear it until it rips at the seams, you can get it repaired with its 10-year guarantee.

Have you jumped on the jumpsuit train yet? Personally, I am a huge fan of the ease of a coverall, and love how it lets you play with creative layering. 

If you opt for an oversized fit with the jumpsuit, you can wear a slim fit hoodie underneath on a cooler day, and leave the front unbuttoned for a little game of peekaboo.

Alternatively , you can wear the sleeves of the jumpsuit tied at the waist, and cuff the bottoms up for a more relaxed, just-threw-this-on look.
