Current Wardrobe Staple – The Hoodie

The hoodie is the new athletic item that is inching it’s way into everyday casual wear.  According to Refinery29, “Wearing a hoodie is just as bossy as wearing leggings as pants.”  Hoodies have been around forever…for wearing at home or to the gym.  But now, hoodies are being paired with everything from leather pants to ripped skinnies.

I recently found this hoodie in Vancouver at Noul.  I love that it’s shape is unexpected.  The wide sleeves and roomy shape are different from the usual and to me, make it a bit more interesting, while still being super comfortable and warm…perfect for mild West Coast winter days.  I paired it with ripped skinny jeans as my shorter frame doesn’t do well with baggy on top and roomy on the bottom.  And it’s a great way to try this trend at a reasonable cost of $48.

This sporty look works well with classic Stan Smith sneakers.  They are SOOO comfy…crazy to think that my dad wore these over 30 years ago when he played tennis!  They are legit a vintage style.

Since I’ve bought this hoodie, I’ve pretty much been living in it!
