Impromptu post alert!
I mean, whilst it may look like a juxtaposition when written, it certainly works irl. I don't actually own many hoodies at all as whilst I like dressing down, I'm more likely to pick up a jumper than a hoodie usually as they're more chic.
HOWEVER, I went up to visit my boyfriend recently and unfortunately the weather just wasn't great and a t-shirt and trench wasn't cutting it- time to see what his wardrobe had to offer! Side note: I can say his jumper collection is FANTASTIC. The piece I was particularly drawn to however was this white hoodie with text on the front- it was quite clean and simple, and very much streetwear (which isn't usually my thing) so I decided to go for it (with his permission ofc).
I threw it over my shirt and after tucking it into jeans I was not only sorted for the day, but also a hoodie convert- everyone knows the classic hoodie-leather jacket combo, but hoodie-trench coat?! My mind was suddenly open to oh-so many possibilities.
The best thing about this outfit was how comfy it was. It was the perfect balance between comfy and smart for me, and I think I'll be wearing it a lot more often once I can get my hands on some good graphic hoodies!
So yeah, the outfit is pretty much what you see is what you get: standard trench, graphic hoodie, jeans, mules and a pop of colour in the bag (more to come on this BEAUT because it's CORDUROY). I think when it comes to later on in term I'll be swapping jeans for leggings and mules for trainers, but otherwise it'll basically be kept the same and will probably end up being my go to off-duty lecture look.
I think once I've found a good hoodie, I'm going to try out a hoodie+jeans+heels combo: works in theory but we'll see how it works irl, so keep posted for that one.
Hoodie: ASOS (Similar)
Trench: Pull & Bear (Similar)

Some hoodie-trench coat options I'm eyeing up:

Green trench and black hoodie
Checked trench and red hoodie
Suede trench and velvet hoodie
Until next time! Hopefully won't be as long a break this time x
