Looking chic while trying to stay warm is always a difficult task. How is one supposed to feel completely bundled up and stylish at the same time? If anyone has figured out how to look on point 24/7, though, it's celebrities. Considering they're photographed no matter where they are or what they're wearing, these stars have had to figure out the most efficient way to stay warm while looking stylish, and guess what? They have.
So what's their secret? These geniuses layer two warm items that happen to look extremely forward when paired together: hoodies underneath a warm outerwear piece. The best thing about this two-piece winter outfit combination/styling trick/perfect look is that the duos you can create are endless. Take it from It girls like Rihanna, Kendall Jenner, and Gigi Hadid, who have each styled their hoodies completely differently from one another. Whether you live in a city with temperamental weather or not, you can try this layering technique with outwear pieces beyond just what you see here—think hoodies under jean jackets, moto jackets, and even blazers.
Scroll down to see how celebrities are styling their hoodies and outerwear pieces!
HOODIE + Colorful Coat
Maybe sporting a green rattlesnake trench might not be the easiest choice, but a coat with a bright color in general is! Try layering yours over a striking sweatsuit—hoodie obviously included.
Shop the Look: Topshop Snap Button Three-Quarter Coat ($150); Vetements + Champion Appliquéd Cotton-Blend Jersey Hooded Top ($570); Vetements + Champion Cotton-Blend Jersey Track Pants ($570); Stuart Weitzman Nudistsong Patent-Leather Sandals ($400).
HOODIE + Leopard Coat
In a hurry but need to spruce up your look? Take it from Bella, throw a furry leopard coat over your everyday hoodie, and you're out the door.
HOODIE + Metallic Jacket
Hoods up or not, layering a basic hoodie under a statement-making jacket like this is sure to turn heads. Especially when paired with that clear Lucite boot–and-fishnets combo.

HOODIE + Robe Coat
We are seeing robe coats in a whole new light thanks to Gigi, who fearlessly layered hers over an edgy printed hoodie. Leather pants and flirty mules add just the right amount of contrast.
On Gigi Hadid: Elwood hoodie; Gucci mules; Karen Walker sunglasses.
HOODIE + Parka
Need a go-to airport outfit? Let Hailey lead the way with her comfy yet street style–worthy look. In cases like this, two hoods are definitely better than one.
HOODIE + Bomber Jacket
So maybe it's not cool enough outside for a huge furry coat but you still want to take advantage of this celebrity styling trick—reach for your bomber jacket. Throw it on over your shoulders with your hood draped over the back, and you're good to go.
On Jourdan Dunn: Vetements hoodie and pants.
