I admire Hailey Bieber as a fashion icon for many other reasons. She’s known to elevate streetwear, convey inspiration from the ’90s and consistently deliver a polished “It Girl” look. Most importantly, she proves time and time again that you do not need to sacrifice comfort for style. Her use of classic pieces transforms loungewear into constructed outfits that make a statement. As a member of Gen Z, I support loungewear as socially acceptable in public. Sweatshirts are an essential piece in the modern closet, but you may not be taking complete advantage of the versatility they can offer. With cold weather slowly returning, here are six ways to style sweatshirts for classes, outings, or to elevate your everyday look, according to Hailey Bieber. Girlboss comfortably, everyone!
Clean and Simple
There’s nothing wrong with sticking to the basics! A black-on-black look with white sneakers, a slicked-back hairstyle along with simple jewelry is classic and attainable. Using a vintage crew neck, like Hailey’s Sweatshirt from Warner Bros, adds an edge to this simple look. The perfect day-to-day ‘never fails’ outfit.
Lean Into 90’s Streetwear
It’s no secret that Hailey Biber takes inspiration from ’90s trends. She owns this aesthetic: from her range of subtle touches in accessories to full-on grunge ensembles. This ’90s-influenced look with baggy cargo pants, chunky sneakers and micro sunglasses pairs perfectly with a grey hoodie.
Add a Blazer
It seems impossible that a grey hoodie and a blazer could be the perfect pairing. But Hailey pulls it off perfectly with trousers, a baseball cap and stylish sunglasses. A look that is sporty, yet chic and versatile for various occasions.
No Pants, No Problem
Okay, okay, I know we’re getting away from short-appropriate weather. That said, I wanted to share this last look to prove to my mom that what I wear around the house after going to the gym can be a fashion statement. In this look, Both Hailey and Justin Bieber wore oversized hoodies and looked cool while doing so.
There’s something to be said for the uniform, polished look of a matching set. Plus, you can go all day feeling as comfy as you would in pajamas: the perfect choice for a long day spent watching lectures. This black crewneck-on-black sweatpants outfit is paired perfectly with gold chains and orange Nike dunks.
Business up Top, Party on The Bottom
Hoodies and crewnecks are often simple pieces. Adding brightly colored pants is a simple way to spice up a look. One of my favourite outfits in my closet is a black hoodie with light purple pants. Here, Hailey’s pink pants bring her crewneck to life. She adds an extra touch with her Alexander Wang Pouch and gold hoops.
