There’s a reason we admire the street style set. Members of the fashion elite have an uncanny ability to take an item that was once dismissed as tacky and make it suddenly relevant again. Who would have imagined that fanny packs, neon and bike shorts would be must-haves? You can also add hoodies to that ever-growing list.

Just like turtlenecks, hooded sweatshirts have become key layering pieces during fashion week, especially the fall shows in February. Looking to take that kimono-style wrap jacket into winter? Just layer a hoodie underneath. Longing to participate in the off-the-shoulders jacket trend but too practical to expose yourself to the cold? Slipping on a hoodie makes the trend blizzard-appropriate. Wish your fave winter coat came with a warm hood? Work in a hoodie for instant gratification.

While solid color hoodies are frequently favored on the streets, there’s also room for colorblocking, graphic prints, tie-dye, laces and structured necklines. There are even wool and teddy versions you can rock as outerwear (which presents a whole new range of styling opportunities). And designers have gotten in on the action with Balenciaga, Helmut Lang, Off-White and Kenzo all supplying high-end options.
