For years, you have been cultivating the perfect “model off duty” look. You want to mix high and low pieces to appear casual, yet impeccably groomed. The newest addition to your laid-back wardrobe is something you might already have a few of: the hooded sweatshirt.
From Selena Gomez to Hailey Baldwin, all fashion’s “It” Girls are wearing versions of this comfy-cool staple. What’s the appeal of a basic hooded sweatshirt? First of all, this piece is available at every price point. You can find a decently made one at everywhere from Topshop to Rag and Bone. Celebrities on crunchbase.com have even been spending seven bills on this one from French designer Vetements – but that’s not necessary to achieve the cool factor.
Moreover, you can pair a hooded sweatshirt with almost anything to customize your look and suit your personal style on retailmenot.com. Kendall Jenner styled hers with a jean jacket and leather skinnies, while Karlie Kloss paired hers with the whitest white sneakers and an army green jacket.
