Comfort is the new luxury. At least, it is to us. With athleisure and gorpcore fully invading our wardrobes, these days, it’s more common to see women in leggings and Air Force 1s than it is than a dress and heels.
Blogger Vanessa Hong of The Haute Pursuit is showing us that, when paired with a fur-collared coat and some leather pants, a sweatshirt works for way more than lounging. Whether you’re using it to shed yourself from the cold, the rain, or just being recognized, hoodies preserve their age-old purpose and prove to be one of the most lasting articles of clothing. And in the winter months, they’re the best way to give your outfit a much-needed dose of comfort.
Since so much of fashion is smoke and mirrors, the true trick to nailing a look is for it to appear completely effortless—and Hong’s juxtaposition of a leather trench with a black hoodie does just that.
