March to the beat of your own music and outfit yourself in comfy casual basics with a twist. This look, which pairs a slouchy hoodie with a fitted base layer, feels very downtown cool. How to get the look? The beauty is in the details, which make these basics feel new again. Here’s how to achieve casual chic in a hoodie:
1. Start with a fitted, patterned top and a pair of straight leg jeans. We love the plaid pattern on this empire waist top–very on-trend.
2. Layer on an oversized hoodie to contrast with the fitted style of the top. Bonus points for bright colors (like this bluish purple) and interesting details (like the double rows of buttons).
3. Slip on a pair of tall boots. Tuck the jeans into the boots to show off the lacing and the buckle detail.
4. Finish off the look with a roomy tote - and (optional) a pair of old-school, full sized headphones to connect to your iPod.
