Dressing for the elements can be tricky – but one of the latest trending looks makes it a little easier.
Hooded fashion is having a moment.
Be it scarves or dresses, hoods are featuring heavily in red carpet looks – you only have to look at Jenna Ortega’s recent stunning Saint Laurent dress to see the trend in action.
A hooded dress might transport you straight back to the 00s, with visions of Kylie Minogue – but they have firmly returned to the fashion world in 2023.
Kate Moss wore a sheer olive green silk jersey dress with a built-in hood to the Museum of Modern Art in New York last November, while Laura Harrier opted for a sleek brown YSL hooded dress for another red carpet look.
Hoods add a new level of interest and drama to any outfit – not to mention they are an additional layer of protection against the wind and rain.
But the best part is you can go as casual or dressed-up as you fancy – with all kinds of hooded options available.
Keep it relaxed with a hooded jersey dress, or go all out with a formal hooded jumpsuit. Alternatively, dip your toe in the trend with a hooded scarf.
The possibilities are endless.
We’ve rounded up our favourite picks from the high street below.
