Originally, the only purpose of a hooded sweatshirt was to keep you comfy after a long day at work—and probably the only thing you wore throughout college. Fast-forward to 2016 and hoodies (plus their comfy-counterparts joggers and sweatshorts) are one of the easiest ways to make a fashion statement. (We’re certainly not complaining!)
Still, there are some “rules” for pulling it off without looking like you’re wearing pajamas. Our advice: avoid hoodies with loud graphics and oversized styles that you’ll be swimming in. You want to make sure it’s semi-fitted so that it can fit under a blazer for a luxe look, and that it has a sharp colorway with a clean design so it’s versatile enough to wear with boots or a fresh pair of kicks. Not sure where to buy? Don’t worry—that’s where we come in.
We dug through the latest fashion offerings and picked our 15 favorite styles for men. Our round up includes sweatshirts with well-placed patterns—like sporty stripes running along the cuffs—and come in shades like brown, olive green, and cream—hues that are super hot for fall.
The best part? You’ll feel like you’re wearing pajamas, without looking like you just rolled out of bed.
