as we gear up for spring here in nyc, we’re well-aware that the picnics, bike rides, and wonderful temperatures that typically mark the season are still quite some time away. in the meantime, lightweight layers are very necessary for surviving the last of the winter chill. my go-to piece for the transitional season: the hoodie.
earlier this month, i ordered these two bad boys from maniere de voir, and i've been wearing them pretty often since they arrived. they’re both lightweight, which makes them great for layering under thicker coats right now (considering it's still harshly cold out here), but also wearing on their own as things eventually warm up. and more than that, they're really stylish in design. the camo option's perfect for making a statement, and the black version is super-functional and subtle enough to break out a few times a week without getting side-eyes for over-wearing it.
why they’re important
one of the best things about the hoodie is that you can wear these street-ready staples anywhere—the gym, the movies, brunch, lunch, you get the point—and the styling options are endless. rather than type out all the different ways to put them to work, watch the video below for 8 easy fashion wins.
