Hoodies Are Chic Now

Feb 16, 2016

It may be the year of the monkey, but when it comes to closets and runways, it’s already the year of the hoodie. 

The tried-and-true throw-on-and-go classic may once have been a staple among stoners, Mark Zuckerberg, and lazy high-schoolers, but it’s received a major upswing in style points courtesy of Vetements, a little help from Rihanna, and Gosha Rubchinskiy, who gave a platform to basic white and gray versions. 

 Sure, the pieces on the runway may reach well over $800, but when it comes to the style on the streets, the price points vary. During this chilly New York Fashion Week alone, Vogue Market Editor Emma Morrison championed the classic, accessibly priced Champion hoodie with a slick bomber jacket, while model Binx Walton wore an oversized, cushy piece from Thrasher. 

But whatever hoodie you choose, whether it’s from Paris or your local big box store, offers an equal opportunity to look too cool for school.
