The day before Valentine’s Day is Galentine’s Day—a day to celebrate your best girlfriends. It's all about ladies celebrating ladies. Whether you choose to host a girls-only party, share some yummy treats or binge watch your favourite shows on Netflix, gather your girls together and give them a card that captures just what they mean to you.
Logo hoodies are back in a big way—here's how to wear them
Your favourite comfy hoodie isn't just for Netflix and chill. Here's how to wear the trend to everything from work to a date.
It used to be that your go-to hoodie was just for hanging out a home or heading out for a jog. But the recent resurgence of visible logos (call this logo-mania) has made it so that this comfortable staple is now a viable work, date, brunch and girls-night outfit option. Don't believe us? Read on for a few styling tricks that will help you take your sweatshirt pretty much anywhere.
How to wear on a date
Logo hoodies are kind of perfect for date night. With the right ensemble you get to be both comfortable and sexy. Our tip? To balance the coverage of the hoodie, show off your legs! A mini or midi skirt is great when you half tuck your hoodie into it. Top off the look with other wardrobe favourites like a leather jacket, a fun bag and a simple pair of low heels.
How to wear to the office
We won't lie—if you work at a more traditional office (where everyone shows up in a suit) then a hoodie isn't going to fly. But, if your office is a bit more modern and casual, you can still look professional. Stick to a dark hoodie in a slim fit, and pair with office wardrobe staples. Think a classic pencil skirt, black pumps and dainty jewellery. Again, tuck that hoodie into your waistband for a more polished effect.
How to wear your hoodie to brunch
This one's a no-brainer, because you can really get casual when it comes to weekend brunch. A classic sporty hoodie is always going to work with your go-to jeans (whether they're skinny of boyfriend-cut) and your favourite sneakers (we love one with some texture). Just add a blanket scarf and you're good to go.
Wear your hoodie for a girl's night
This is where you can really have some fun with your hoodie. Pick a bright or pastel colour (we love this mint one), and pair it with unexpected glamour. Metallic, beading, fringe, leather—this is where to get creative. Add some statement jewellery and some great shoes (nothing too delicate, please) and this is one outfit your girlfriends will wish they wore too.
Casual Friday could use a hoodie
Instead of reaching for your jeans this Friday, head to work in a logo hoodie paired with tailored culottes or cropped trousers. When worn with a work-appropriate heel and bag, this is a surprisingly chic look. Top it off with this season's go-to outerwear piece, the thin puffer jacket.
