Hoodies have for a long time had a rather scruffy reputation, however this winter it’s not just Justin Bieber who is living in a hooded sweatshirt. This week I keep noticing even the smartest of dressers wearing a hoodie snuggled underneath their blazers and tailored coats, showing this isn’t just a student staple.

The key here is to keep the rest of the outfit quite structured, and contrast the tailoring with a cosy hoodie in either camel, grey, navy or a soft pastel. Think mixing a pair of heeled boots, black trousers, smart camel coat and a leather shoulder bag with a grey marl hoodie and a knitted beanie. This layering trick is the perfect way of easing back into getting properly dressed after a week in pyjamas—you look smart, but it means you don’t need to let go of loungewear just yet. Keep scrolling for ideas for how to style a hoodie in a smarter fashion—and shop the look for yourself.

Style Notes: Stick to a neutral colour palette, with browns, camels and greys.

Style Notes: Ada wears a simple grey hoodie underneath her checked skirt suit.

Style Notes: Stacey Dooley is the queen of loungewear, and here she wears a grey hoodie with an oversized leopard coat.

Style Notes: We love this simple combination of straight-leg jeans, a grey hoodie and camel coat.

Style Notes: The checked coat smartens up the tracksuit bottoms, trainers and grey hoodie.
