How To Wear a Hooded Sweatshirt & Not Look Sloppy

Wearing a hooded sweatshirt and not looking sloppy can be hard.

Hooded sweatshirts are always a good piece to have in your wardrobe. But looking for the right one to wear in a few different key ways can be hard. 

How do you do it and not look like you were just at the gym? What color do you pick? How can sweatshirts look cool?

First, choose a hooded sweatshirt in a great color.

It doesn't have to be grey (like the one featured here) or black. It can be any color that works the best with your wardrobe. Basic colors like grey and black are great because they don't look sloppy with jeans- but you know your style and wardrobe the best.

Second, throw a more casual jacket on top.

This is great for a more casual, yet elevated look. The hooded sweatshirt doesn't look sloppy when it's worn under a more structured piece, like this light-weight button jacket. This look is great for a casual dinner with your friends or fall activities (since you still want to look effortlessly stylish, even at the apple orchard).

Third, try to dress it up.

Hooded sweatshirts can also be worn under sport coats. This looks the best with a dark pair of jeans. The hooded sweatshirt doesn't look sloppy because, again, it's framed by the silhouette of the coat. The more fitted the coat the more clean and sharp the look. Play with patterns and really make it your own.

So, go out and rock a hooded sweatshirt!
