Few things in this world are as comfy as a hoodie. Weekend staples like a sweatshirt and track pants are no longer just for couch potatoes. Smart pairings and accessories can dress up what was once a purely casual look.

 

 

The soft, zippered layer with throw-on ease even has its own built-in weather shield. It’s a go-to, but the wrong one can call to mind an unemployed gamer.

It’s a slam-dunk combo of unfussy comfort and effortless cool.
