And if you are one of those guys looking for ways to make a black hoodie sing on your body then this blog post is for you. There are countless ways you can throw on this humble black hooded sweatshirt to conjure up edgy black hoodie outfits for you, but we’ll show you the best ways to rock this classic casual piece and create some edgy streetwear ensembles or a stylish fall outfit for you.
How do men wear black hoodies?
Here’s a short and sweet style guide for men on how to rock a black hoodie and look stylish in it.
Fit and fabric:
You should opt for a slimmer and form-fitting black hoodie if you often layer it under one of your best jackets, topcoats, and overshirts. A slim fit will make it easy to layer and it will be comfortable on your body. You can go for a slightly bulkier version if you often wear your black hoodie as the topmost layer on your spring or autumn outfits. But proper length is important, your black hoodie shouldn’t look like a sack enveloping your torso and bum. You should be able to easily reach your pants pockets when wearing this hoodie plus it shouldn’t be so baggy that it dangles on your body when working out.
Black hoodie layering:
When it comes to layering, it’s important to keep the scheme of colors subdued and muted. By this, we mean you shouldn’t be using too much color for other pieces of your outfit when wearing a black hoodie. An orange puffer or a lime bomber jacket may not be the easiest color to pull off. Sticking with the earthy tones is your safest bet, use a black, camel, or gray topcoat, a black or red biker jacket, and puffies and bombers in similar tones will work best. So, are colors a forbidden fruit when it comes to teaming up pieces of your black hoodie outfit? Not at all! To introduce a touch of color to your casual black hoodie style, layer a blue denim jacket, a denim vest or check flannels. You can opt for a puffer vest in bright colors to layer over your black hoodie, and it won’t make you any less of a man!
Bottoms to try with a black hoodie:
For a smart casual look, pair your best pair of jeans with the black hoodie. Every species of jeans will work with that ebony fleece hoodie. Layer the biker jacket or a topcoat of choice up top for a chic casual look. Chinos, casual pants, joggers, and cargo pants all work with a black hoodie. As for the color of these bottoms, stick to the earthy tones and neutrals, as they work seamlessly with a black hoodie. Avoid pants in colors like red, navy, and dark green; they don’t mix well with a black top.
Jeans with a black hoodie:
As described earlier, a black hoodie will work with every type of jeans, but darker shades would look better. Light-wash blue jeans won’t look as good as a pair of navy jeans. A total black look can be created with black jeans and a black hoodie, a steezy leather jacket or a black topcoat will be the perfect choice to top off this all-black ensemble. White jeans can be combined with your black hoodie for a cool casual ensemble, again you can opt for a top layer of your choice to spiff up the style. A double denim look with a black hoodie is the thing for diehard denim junkies.
How do you make a black hoodie look good?
Making a black hoodie look good on you is not that hard. It’s a proven trick to introduce accessories to kick your swag up a notch. We’d say just introducing an accessory won’t be enough! You’ll have to integrate and coordinate the pieces together. A baseball cap, a beanie, and a bandana that matches the hoodie will be great. But this doesn’t mean you can opt only for black baseball caps and beanies and bandanas in dark shades. Think about matching the accessories with other pieces of the ensemble. A pair of sunglasses, wristbands, necklaces, and bracelets will amp up your black hoodie look, as these accessories always do with street-style cool.
