In a land surrounded by water it is no wonder Australian men swear by recreational fishing, surfing and boating as the best hobbies and pastime activities. Another thing most men have in common is the desire to look and feel good while out with friends, running errands or doing some recreational activity. That being said, if there’s one piece of clothing that’s comfortable and practical enough to be worn to a number of occasions and fit various style preferences that has to be the hoodie. Here is how you can make it work for you.
As Part of an Athleisure Look
The various styles of hoodies that can be found make it possible for you to pull off a sporty looking style without running the risk of looking like you were too lazy to get out of your gym clothes. It is an enjoyable piece of fashion clothing which you can easily combine with a simple, one coloured T-shirt underneath and your favourite pair of fitted joggers. In order to complete the look, you can opt for sneakers.
As a Just-in-Case it Gets Chilly Option
Imagine this scenario – summer is almost here, you can finally go to the beach, you do your thing (either surf, swim or simply lay around) and then as soon as the sun sets down you start to feel as if summer isn’t really here, and you are in need of an additional layer of clothing. Well, this is when you will be grateful for packing a hoodie the morning you left for the beach. It is not the first go-to surf style clothing, but you can put it on over your beach top and shorts and still look great while feeling comfy and warm enough to spend some more time relaxing.
As Part of a Layered Look
And for colder days, when a hoodie simply isn’t enough to keep you warm, you can effortlessly achieve a stylish and kind of edgy look by combining it with a leather jacket. You can opt for the same colour shade for both the hoodie and jacket or if you are the type that likes to keep things interesting and more colourful, you can mix and match as you see fit. Most often the leather jacket is kept black – as a base, and the hoodie is the piece that can add versatility.
Those of you that are not fans of the leather jacket, and are into more casual combinations – the denim jacket can do the trick. The end result will be a relaxed and cool look. Here, again, you can play with shades. Dark or light blue for the jacket, and countless models of hoodies. There is even a style option for men that are into fashion clothing that screams rock-n-roll. A pair of black skinny jeans, with black leather boots and a hoodie combined with a dark denim jacket, can be the perfect combo for you.
With Tailoring for a Smart Look
If you want to look sharp but still feel comfy, you can combine your hoodie with a tailored blazer. Additionally, there is the option to layer the hoodie under an unstructured suit for a combo that will definitely make you stand out from the crowd – in a positive sense, of course. It’s the perfect “sports meets suit” look. And, finally, for a less committed mix of smart and casual, you can combine a hoodie with a pair of smart trousers. Most often this combo calls for wide-leg trousers and you can finish the look with a long formal or semi-formal coat.
