Three ways to wear a knitted hoodie

Words: C. Stewart


Casual kit has enjoyed a heyday in recent years (and this year more than ever), making its way into all our daily wardrobes. But a well-chosen casual item – or more specifically, given the title of this post, a knitted hoodie – can be more than something you sling on at home.

The beauty of a good basic like a knitted hoodie is its ability to ground a strong look. Here, worn with single-toned trousers, t-shirt and trainers, it does a stellar job of balancing a statement coat.

Alternatively, a zip-up hoodie makes smarter tailoring feel more relaxed for day-to-day dressing. And in a fine-gauge knit, it adds warmth without bulk so won’t disrupt the lines of your well-cut overcoat either.

Of course, it’d be foolish not to acknowledge you’ll probably wear your knitted hoodie at home too. Choose one in luxurious merino-rich yarns and pair with stretch chinos for a look that’s a notch up from joggers but just as comfy.
