There are many ways of styling an oversized hoodies.

The hoodie is many celebrities' new favorite fashion trend. It is THE perfect solution if you are looking for endless comfort without losing, your sense of fashion.

It is a must-have streetwear piece in your closet, that you can style in many ways. Now, all you need is to learn how to style an oversized hoodie without looking sloppy. We’ve actually found a few ways of pulling the hoodie off and make it look cosy and sexy at the same time. 

Go for Lighter Shades

Soft shades will freshen up and elevate an outfit that looks a little too chill. There is something about camel, mocha, coffee, and shades of beige that makes clothing look chic and classy, and there is nothing like a soft American Eagle hoodie.

Pastel colors add a feminine touch and lighten up the whole look. If you really want to do it right, pair your new beige or pastel knitted Polo Ralph Lauren sweater with something light under it, like white jeans or a cream-colored pair of elegant trousers. Throw over a camel coat and you’re ready to go with a casual but oh-so-chic look.

Give In To The Baggyness 


If you’re going tomboy, might as well go full-on. Style your oversized hoodie with a pair of wide-leg cargo pants, jeans or wool suit trousers. To avoid looking like a complete sloppy-joe, go for a hoodie that is semi-baggy, so it doesn’t create excess fabric around the waist. This will make the outfit look more polished. Have a look at Rihanna looking hot AF with her oversized hoodie.


Wear It Under A Blazer 

Tomboy meets a grown man meets fashion starlet with this simple styling trick. Throwing a blazer over your sweater (like one of these OFF-WHITE hoodies) instantly dresses it up and gives it an effortless yet trendy feel. You can wear some workwear pants to make it look suit-like, which always looks amazing with a Moncler cozy hoodie.  It will look even better if you have a full-on suit to match the blazer with your pants. Here are some cool blazers you could wear with your favorite hoodie.

Try Out A Cropped Hoodie 

Here’s a little hack for you: if it looks too baggy, just crop it! But before you start slicing away all the midriffs of your Nike baggy sweatshirts, have a look at the cropped hoodies you can shop here. We love a cropped PrettyLittleThing hoodie over high waist jeans, or for more of an unexpected look, a pair of straight office-ready trousers (you know the vibes).

Pair Them With Knee-high Boots 


Okay, if you ever want to look like Ariana Grande then this is your chance. Style an adidas oversized hoodie with a pair of knee-high boots and you’re pretty much done. Don’t you just love it when getting dressed is this easy? Many will agree with me that wearing men’s clothing can be very sexy in a Laissez-faire or power-move way (baggy Levi's jeansclassic Calvin Klein t-shirts, power suit, etc.).

A hoodie, however, doesn’t exactly ooze seduction (although, whatever floats your boatbut paired some knee-high boots you’ve solved that problem.

How to style an oversized hoodie without looking sloppy? It's all in the styling. Go for a tomboy look with baggy trousers or try out something a little more risqué with knee-high boots and no trousers... If you're really running out of time or inspiration, it's never a bad idea to pair your hoodie with a pair of sleek leggings and sneakers. It's only sloppy if you're sloppy, at the end of the day.
