Our most worn item of clothing in our wardrobe? Our hoodies. Yes seriously, we love them. Okay, so maybe not our most worn piece of all—jeans have to take that crown—but they do come a very close second. Which is why we decided to design our range: the A Style Album I AM LOVED hoody really has been a labour of love. Combining all the things we appreciate and avoiding everything we dislike from our existing hooded sweatshirt collections to design our dream style that we’ll wear everywhere; from the school run to the gym, to meetings and for dinner (maybe not all in the same day!) meant that it had to be the perfect length, shape, colour and thickness of sweatshirt fabric. We finally got there.
Hoodies, for some, are thought of as something you pull on when you want to be a complete slob, or something that you grew out of wearing, but we’re here to prove they can be worn in a grown-up, smarter way. Like with so many tricky items, it's really all about how they are styled. They are like our comfort blanket—we instantly feel relaxed when we pull one on. The colours we’ve designed are super versatile and will be easy to mix and match into your existing wardrobe. Looking stylish while staying comfortable is the key for us, so if you haven't already it’s time to embrace the hoodie. Keep reading to see how we always style them out…
HOODIE OUTFIT #1: Smarten Up With a Blazer
Our favourite way to wear a hoody, team under a blazer and instantly get a smart/casual look. This look works with trousers and heels if you need a smarter vibe for the office or team trainers for smart/casual.
HOODIE OUTFIT #2: Add Leather Trousers for a Night Out
Yes, a hoodie and leather trousers go perfectly together and make for an alternative night-out look. Just add heels, and you’re good to go. Plus the bonus is a hooded sweatshirt hides all sins when going heavy on the carbs!
HOODIE OUTFIT #3: Cropped Jeans and Your Favourite Shoes
You can still wear a hoodie casually without veering into slob territory, team with your fave cropped denim jeans and add a pair of high-tops, and you have a stylish off-duty combo. Our hoodies are designed to be worn slightly oversized, teaming with skinny jeans will balance out proportions and will soon become your everyday staple.
HOODIE OUTFIT #4: Hoodies and Skirts Can Work in Harmony
It's understandable that you automatically graviate towards trousers and jeans instead of skirts to wear with your hoodies, but we're into the idea of wearing them with a midi skirts and heels—slouchy but still appropriate enough for a work day.
