Hoodie Styling Tips For Mature Ladies

I didn’t buy any hoodie in my life until 2017. To be honest, it’s because the hoodies are becoming so popular. I used to believe that my style was not suitable for wearing a hoodie, so I didn’t have much interest in it; I had missed this classic trend for a long time. What was the turning point that made me change my mind? In fact, it is because I have learned how to wear hoodies that suit my personality. Using different ways to create my favorite styles, and I begin slowly to collect some favorite pieces.

In this article, I will share with you two points: “How to choose a suitable hoodie” and “Three hoodie styling tips for mature ladies.” If you like hoodies, but worry that the style is too casual, or have been bored with the general hoodie outfits; then this article may change your opinion of hoodies and fall in love with it gradually.

一直到2017年才購入人生第一件連帽衫;雖然很不想承認,但老實說就是因為這件單品實在是太紅了,每天滑手機讓人滑得心癢癢的。之前一直對連帽衫沒有興趣是以為自己的穿衣風格與這種運動型單品不合搭,也因為這樣而錯過了這件百年經典單品的魅力。那到底是什麼原因讓我改變想法呢?其實是因為琢磨出了「非少女系」的連帽衫穿搭法,以不同的搭配手法塑造出喜歡的連帽衫風格,這才開始慢慢地蒐集喜歡的款式。

這篇文章將與女子們分享「如何挑選一件合適的連帽衫」與「三款非少女系連帽衫造型手法」兩大重點。如果你也和我一樣很喜歡連帽衫卻又擔心過於休閒,或者對一般連帽衫的穿搭手法已經無感卻又沒有新的想法,那麼這篇文章或許可以改變你對連帽衫的看法,也漸漸地喜歡上它。

How to choose right hoodies
  • The practical repeatability : The most common designs of hoodies have two styles, one is with the zipper, and the other is the pullover style. A hoodie with a zipper on the front often has lettering or numbers on the back; pullover styles usually have a pattern on the chest. Ladies who want to avoid being too cute can choose simple styles. Simple designs are easier to wear, and it’s also easier to dress in different outfits. The more occasions you can wear, the more worth it.
  • The fabric : Some hoodies have thick fabrics that are comfortable to wear and keep warm in winter. However, if you buy a style that is not fit to your body shape, then it will make the body looks bloated. Try a hoodie and see if it fits your body shape before you buy. If you would like to order one from the internet, first check if the slim models in the photos look bloated. If they do, then you should not order it; unless you are thinner than the models. Also, how to check if a hoodie fits? Make sure the balance of the shoulder line and the chest line seem to be satisfying, then this piece is right for you.
  • The design : Hoodies usually have an elastic band at the hem. From this detail, we can decide whether to purchase this piece. If the size of the hoodie is standard, after the body moves, the over-tight hem will snap the length of the hoodie over our waist. Then women who have bloated hips will look expanded; should avoid. There is also a detail that we often overlook, which is the design between the hat and the collar. Some hoodies with large hats will pull the entire piece back, and then the proportion is strange and not elegant.
如何挑選合適的連帽衫
  • 一件單品永久穿搭的可能性:連帽衫最常見的設計款式有兩種,一種是前方有拉鍊的、另一種為套頭款式。前方有拉鍊的往往在背面有圖樣、字樣或是數字的設計,而套頭款的常常在胸前有花樣變化。想避免過多可愛元素上身的女子們可以挑選素面款式,不僅重複穿搭時不會過於明顯(有圖樣就容易有印象,曝光過多時其他人才不會以為你「只有」一件連帽衫。),而且素面款式作多重造型時也比較容易;可以重複穿搭的機會越多也就越值得了。
  • 質料的挑選:有些連帽衫的質料很厚,雖然穿起來很舒服,在冬天時也很保暖,但是如果挑選不恰當的話,容易看來比較臃腫。不過有些布料的垂墜度很好,所以儘管厚也很修飾體型。購買的時候應該先試穿,套套看是否適合自己的身高體型。如果透過網路購買,看看照片中模特兒穿起來的效果,如果連纖瘦的模特兒都看起來圓圓的話,那就在考慮是否訂購(除非你比模特兒還更加瘦小,那就另當別論了。)。另外,衣服的垂墜度好不好怎麼看呢?正面:肩線的比例;側面:胸線的比例。如果正面的肩線與側面胸線的比例看起來都令自己滿意時,那麼這款衣服的垂墜度就是適合的。
  • 版型的設計:連帽衫通常在衣擺處有鬆緊的設計,這個細節則決定了這件單品是否值得購買。如果連帽衫是正常尺碼,過緊的衣擺在肢體活動之後會將連帽衫的長度卡在腰身部位,那麼臀圍比較豐滿的女子就會看起來下圍過大;應該避免。另外還有個細部我們常常都會忽略了,那就是帽子與領子連接的設計手法。有些連帽衫的帽子過大,會把整件衣服的重心往後拉,領子拉高了便卡在喉嚨,比例則顯得奇怪,不優雅,也值得注意。

Style 1 : Just enjoy your hoodie

For the first styling, I wore a hoodie with a pair of jeans, a pair of casual shoes and a teddy bear jacket that is also popular in this season. However, when my jacket, tops and trousers are all in a casual style, I will choose bags and shoes thoughtfully. It makes a big difference to young girls who also wear hoodies; add nice quality accessories thoughtfully will make your hoodie outfit to another level.

造型一:放膽輕鬆穿

第一套造型我們就放膽輕鬆穿,以連帽衫配上牛仔褲、休閒鞋還有這一季同樣熱門的泰迪熊外套。不過當我三大元素(外套、上衣、褲子)都是以隨性輕鬆的單品做搭配時,我一定會在包包與鞋子上花心思;這樣一來就可以輕鬆區分出「放膽輕鬆穿」與「少女輕鬆穿」之間的不同。當少女有無敵的青春當作加分的重點時,女子們則用質感配件做出類似「心機素顏」的造型,也就是看來很輕鬆其實內心戲很多,下了很多功夫在細節上呢。這樣一來,女子們不但可以穿得休閒,也不會顯得「裝可愛」。

Style 2 : Mix and match

Hoodie outfits always have a casual touch. If you want to dress comfortably, but don’t want to look like casual, it’s a good idea to mix and match with a hoodie. For example : join a child’s school party, or an afternoon tea date with girlfriends on the weekend, or a movie date with your boyfriend. In this outfit, I wore the most common simple grey hoodie with a dark green satin long vest and a pair of flats. The layman will feel that your styling looks good. And people who understand will stare at you to appreciate your outfit.

造型二:混搭真功夫

連帽衫在視覺上都帶有點休閒的氛圍,如果是在輕鬆但是不能隨便的場合,就很適合以連帽衫做混搭(順便露兩手在造型上的真功夫);比如說參加孩子的園遊會(諸如此類的校園活動)、週末跟姊妹淘一起喝茶(說好隨便穿但是又怕被比下去的場合)或者和男友一起約會看電影(女子約會不應該每次都過於美麗性感,偶爾輕鬆一點也是必要的)。在這套穿搭中,我以最常見的素面灰色連帽衫搭配一件墨綠色緞面長背心,再搭配上品牌平底鞋;外行的人會覺得這套穿搭挺好看的,而內行的人絕對會盯著你獨特的造型欣賞呢。下次再有這種心機場合,也試試看吧。

Style 3 : Create a romantic hoodie outfit

When I first styled this oversized hoodie, I considered several different styles. Even with the simplest way to dress, wearing this hoodie with a pair of skinny jeans plus one pair of ankle boots is a stylish outfit. But what made me hesitate was whether there was any possibility to style this special hoodie. How about to create a romantic outfit with it? After trying the style on, it proved my idea was right. I wore the one-piece dress with the fishnet tights and a pair of sneakers; moreover showed a little bit the shoulder line. The combination of different elements has created a unique hoodie outfit.

造型三:層次浪漫感

當初面對這件男版加大尺寸的連帽衫時,著實讓我多考慮了幾種不同造型:配上緊身牛仔褲再加上低跟踝靴,以上寬下窄的手法來搭配也都算有型。不過真正讓我猶豫的,是有沒有其他的可能性,一些我們無法馬上聯想在一起的穿搭風格呢?上寬下寬是近期很吸引我的一種搭配手法;那麼有沒有機會把浪漫的元素套在這件男版軍裝的連帽衫上做出反差呢?衣櫃裡這件連身長紗裙在試穿之後果然證明我的直覺是對的,配上網襪、球鞋,再把連帽衫衣領處翻大些,微微露出肩膀線條,多種衝突的元素搭在一起竟然拉出了高調的內斂感,馬上呈現出「非少女」的優雅身段。這套穿搭是不是也讓你對連帽衫有了不同的印象呢?

I hope that through this series of styling articles, I can bring the simple and easy concept of styling into everyone’s life. We are not fashion bloggers whom we follow on the social media. We cannot buy new clothes, bags and shoes every month, nor can we copy their fabulous outfits directly into our daily life. However, we only need some simple tips, and we can manage different styles from the stuff that we already have in the closet.

If you have any idea about styling that you would like to know about, or if you have questions about certain items, please leave a message for me. I hope this article can bring you more inspiration about the hoodie stylings.

希望可以透過這一系列簡單明瞭的穿搭手法把「造型」帶進大家的生活之中。我們都不是社群媒體上的部落客,無法每個月購入大量新的衣著包款鞋子,也大多沒有辦法在生活日常中直接複製他們較為誇張的穿搭手法;不過只需要一點點簡單的穿搭技巧,我們都可以從衣櫃裡已經有的單品中再重新搭配出不同的穿衣變化呢。

連帽衫(尤其是拉鍊設計的)特別適合台灣的氣候與冷氣房,也希望喜歡連帽衫的女子們覺得這篇造型穿搭中的小技巧都實用。如果你有特別想瞭解的造型搭配方法,或是對於某些單品有穿搭上的疑問,都歡迎留言給我,也可以提供我撰寫穿搭文章上的想法與靈感。
