How to Style a Hoodie: JAXXON Style Guide

How-To Guide

In a world where style is constantly evolving, it is crucial to have clothing options that effortlessly transition from casual to smart casual or streetwear looks. That's where hoodies come into play. With their ability to be dressed up or down, hoodies have become a go-to choice for men seeking versatile and stylish apparel. Whether you're aiming for a laid-back, active, or fashion-forward ensemble, this guide on how to style a hoodie will help you transform a simple sweatshirt into a statement piece that reflects your personal style. Get ready to redefine your wardrobe and embrace the infinite hoodie outfit ideas with confidence and panache.


Hoodies have solidified their position as one of the most versatile pieces of clothing in a man's wardrobe. With their comfortable and relaxed design, hoodies easily transition from casual to more refined looks. They can be effortlessly paired with jeans or joggers for a laid-back aesthetic, creating a perfect ensemble for a casual outing. Additionally, hoodies lend themselves well to layering, allowing you to experiment with different combinations. Throw on a denim jacket or a bomber jacket over your hoodie for a stylish outfit idea. For those who embrace streetwear, hoodies can be mixed and matched with ripped jeans and graphic tees to create edgy and fashion-forward outfits. 

The versatility of hoodies also extends to their adaptability for active and athleisure looks. Pair them with athletic shorts or sweatpants for a sporty vibe, or layer them with a windbreaker or track jacket for outdoor activities. With hoodies, the possibilities are endless, making them an indispensable staple in every man's wardrobe.

Casual and Relaxed Looks

Hoodies are the epitome of comfort and casual style. For an effortlessly cool ensemble, pair your hoodie with a classic pair of jeans or comfortable joggers. Depending on your preference, opt for a slim or relaxed fit hoodie and layer it over a simple t-shirt or long-sleeve shirt. Complete your hoodie outfit with your favorite sneakers and a Figaro Chain for a touch of urban flair. 

To add a bit of dimension, experiment with different colors and textures. Try a sweatshirt in a neutral tone like black, gray, or navy, or opt for a vibrant hue to inject a pop of color into your outfit. And for those cooler evenings, layer a lightweight jacket or a flannel shirt over your hoodie for added warmth and style. Whether you're running errands or meeting friends for a casual hangout, the casual, relaxed look created with a hoodie will keep you comfortable without compromising style.

Smart Casual and Streetwear

Hoodies are no longer confined to just casual settings; they have seamlessly integrated themselves into smart casual and streetwear aesthetics. To achieve a smart casual look, start by pairing your hoodie with tailored pants or chinos. Opt for a fitted hoodie in a solid color or a subtle pattern to maintain a polished appearance. Next, layer a blazer or a tailored jacket over your hoodie for a refined touch, and complete the ensemble with men’s fashion accessories. Our Religious Pendants or our Gold Pendants and white sneakers will help this look strike the perfect balance between casual and sophisticated.

If you're aiming for a streetwear-inspired look, embrace the urban vibes by combining your hoodie with statement pieces. Ripped jeans, cargo pants, or joggers and play with bold graphics, logos, or oversized hoodies for a fashion-forward edge. Complement the stylish outfit with chunky sneakers or high-top shoes to enhance the streetwear appeal. Whether you're dressing up or down, hoodies effortlessly adapt to these different styles, allowing you to express your unique fashion sensibilities in both smart casual and streetwear looks.

Hoodies for Active and Athleisure Outfits

Hoodies are not only stylish but also practical and functional, making them an excellent choice for active and athleisure outfits. Whether you're hitting the gym, going for a run, or simply embracing a sporty aesthetic, hoodies are your go-to companion. For active looks, pair your hoodie with athletic shorts or sweatpants made from moisture-wicking materials to keep you cool and comfortable during workouts. Look for hoodies with zip-up fronts for easy layering and temperature control. 

If you're leaning towards an athleisure style, combine your hoodie with leggings or joggers for a sleek and sporty look. Layer a lightweight windbreaker or a track jacket over your pullover hoodie for added functionality and style. Accessorize with a Rope Chain to complete the active and athleisure ensemble.

Tips for Accessorizing Hoodies with Earrings and Rings

If our different types of gold chains aren’t quite fitting the aesthetic, earrings and rings offer alternative options to enhance your hoodie ensemble. For earrings, consider the style and size that complements the hoodie's neckline. If you're wearing a zip-up hoodie, Classic Stud Earrings or Thin Hoop Earrings can add subtle charm without overwhelming the outfit. For hoodies with a more open neckline, you can experiment with statement earrings like our Iced Out Hoop Earrings to create a bold and eye-catching effect. 

When pairing different types of men's rings with hoodies, think about coordinating the metals or colors. Opt for minimalistic designs like the Twelve Ring for a sleek and modern look, or go for bolder rings like our Iced Out Cuban Link Ring to make a statement. Consider the balance and proportion of your accessories to ensure they harmonize with the overall outfit. Remember, the goal is to enhance your hoodie look without overpowering it.

Embrace the versatility of hoodies and make them a staple in your wardrobe for endless style possibilities. Whether you're lounging at home, hitting the streets, or embracing a sporty lifestyle, hoodies are the go-to option for comfort and style. So, grab your favorite hoodie, experiment with different looks, and confidently embrace the timeless appeal of this fashion staple.
