Dressing for the elements can be tricky – but one of the latest trending looks makes it a little easier.
Hoodie fashion is on the rise.
Whether it’s scarves or dresses, hoods feature heavily in red carpet looks – just look at Jenna Ortega’s stunning recent Saint Laurent dress to see the trend in action.
A hooded dress can transport you straight to the 2000s, complete with visions of Kylie Minogue – but they’ve firmly returned to the fashion world in 2023.
Kate Moss wore a sheer olive green silk jersey dress with a built-in hood at the Museum of Modern Art in New York last November, while Laura Harrier opted for an elegant YSL brown hooded dress for another red carpet look.
Hoods add a new level of interest and drama to any outfit, not to mention they are an extra layer of protection from the wind and rain.
But the best part is that you can be as casual or dressed up as you want – with all sorts of hoodie options available.
Keep it casual with a hooded jersey dress, or go with a formal hooded jumpsuit. Alternatively, dip your toe into the trend with a hooded scarf.
The possibilities are limitless.
We’ve rounded up our favorite high street picks below.
