{Outfit}: How to wear a Hoodie ?

  Friday March 15, 2013

I've had this hoodie for many years now and I never knew how to wear it. I bought it back when I liked to wear jeans, t-shirts, and hoodie jackets. So once my style changed to wearing dresses almost everyday, I just didn't know how to wear it anymore.

I really like the outfit I came up with today though!! I think its the perfect mix of classy (the silver maxi) and casual (the hoodie).

  1. Well, Miss Marie, you've done it again! I never thought that a hoodie and a dress could ever be paired together ever. And yet here you are, breaking that thought from my mind. :)

  3. I usually go with boy hoodies because I'm looking for warmth. But it really IS hard to find a stylish way to wear most of these.

  4. Wow, I can SO relate to this post! My closet used to be filled with only jeans, tops and hoodies, and now I almost always wear dresses and the hoodies have been banned to the back of my closet. But this has really given me some new ideas to match things up a bit! :) I love the hoodie you are wearing, and the combination with the silver dress just really works... Thanks for the great idea, Marie! :D

  5. I usually wear hoodies with very casual dresses and skirts. Perhaps with a blazer over the top.

  6. I think i one have one or two hoodies - they become very handy when i travel.
    Plane seats creep me out. What if the person who sat there had had lice or did not wash their hair ?!

  12. Hahahahahha, a hoodie seems like the way to go for airplanes! Yeah, I think about that too when I'm in a plane, I usually like to wear hats when I travel so that my hair and head are protected, but the hoodie seems like such a better choice. I'll have to remember that next time!

  14. Hey, this is brilliant! I have some really cute hoodies I just can't wear anymore, but styling it kinda like a blazer over a dress is a great way to mix dressy-casual. I'm gonna have to try this one!

  17. I think you styled the hoodie well in this outfit. The maxi dress goes well with it! Very fun and different. :)

  18. I love how you styled this! i have one cute zip up hoodie I got on sale a few years ago. I don't wear it often, but I like knowing I have a cute, warm jacket always there!

    The perfect proof we can look casual and chic at the same time :)
