How I Style Black Statement Hoodie

You probably already knew that I’m a girl who live in sweaters and sneakers. If you don’t, now you know (lol). Usually I tend to style hoodie with a pair of distressed skinnies, or a pair of shorts for that comfy and chic look. However, this is not the look I go for today.

The hoodie itself is pretty thin, tbh it is more like a sweatshirt, but I’m totally fine with it as Malaysia is hot and humid throughout the year. And I get to layer it with jackets or a shirt underneath when the temperature drops. Hence, if you’re looking for thick hoodie, you might just skip this.

I got drawn to this hoodie the moment I spot the full moon graphic on the center and the ribbon drawstring with letters on it. I absolutely love how they instantly spice up this black hoodie and add that edgy vibe. If you don’t favor black, this hoodie comes with several colours! P.S remember to size up as the hoodie runs in a smaller size. The one I’m wearing is in size XL.

For this look, I wanted something minimal, edgy and feminine at the same time. Hence, I teamed the hoodie with a black denim short skirt, and a pair of white adidas superstar sneakers.

Sporty Wide-Leg Pants to Create Athleisure Vibe

Sporty-Wide-Leg-Pants-to-Create-Athleisure-Vibe

Wide-Leg Pants are literally EVERYWHERE since last year and to be honest, I don’t  really favor em as they can be a little tricky to style and actually look flattering on the body unless you pick the right cut! However, ever since I discovered the perfect cut for myself, wide-leg pants have been in my heavy rotations! I began to love how comfy they are on the skin. Whether you’re traveling or you’re running out of time and not really feel like trying something new, just throw em on with a basic or graphic tee and a pair of sneakers, and you are good to go.

tips-on-choosing-wide-leg-pants

Without further ado, I would love to give you some tips on how to choose and style wide-leg pants so that you will look elongated yet effortlessly chic.

  • Try it on if possible.

Things can look so different on your body than flat on a hanger, so head to the changing room and take a look in the mirror. You might be surprised.

  • Fabric is important

If you want to look slender.  Try to opt for soft fabric, as they will create that flowy movement. And try to avoid thick fabric like khaki, denim, or velvet. They tend to make you look bulky.

  • Opt for high rise cut

As usual high rise looks super flattering as will draw the eye away from your widest part, to your small waist and perfectly shows off your curves. Avoid low rise in all costs if you have a bit of a tummy (who doesn’t?), this shape just highlights it.

  • Try to opt for elasticised waist

I usually opt for elasticised waist as it gives you more comfort. PS, try to opt those with hidden elasticised waistband as they would look more flattering.

  • Choose the perfect wideness 

Many individuals have the misconception of choosing the widest wide-leg pants will look more flattering but this is a huge NO! You do not want to end up drowning in your own pants. Try to opt the wideness of the pants +10/12cm compared to your usual leg measurement.

  • Pick the straight-cut

If you’re not confident with your legs, try to avoid the flare cut and pick the straight-cut. So that they will elongate your legs and make you look slender.

  • Pick the right length

If you’re tall and have slender legs, pick the 7/8 crop cut to show off a glimpse of your ankles. If you want to create that relax and athleisure vibe, pick those that cover all your legs. They also create an illusion of you having a pair of long and endless legs.

  • Slits are great additions

It’s a big YES if the wide-leg pants have slits as they show off your skin without bearing it all! And they also add a beautiful movement.

For today’s look I wanted something athleisure yet feminine. Hence, I wore a mustard yellow off-the-shoulder crop top from Monki. I love how the mustard yellow complements the wide-leg pants’ red and white stripes detailing! They just make the entire outfit pop. For shoes, to intensify the athelisure vibe, I wore my white sneakers from Adidas Superstar series.

To be honest, I usually won’t purchase pants online as I was so afraid the pants would not fit me and I have to return, but luckily this pair fits me perfectly. For your information, the size I picked for this wide-leg pants is M.

While wearing basics from head to toe, it’s extremely important to pay attention to the details such as the silhouette, and the fabric. For example, the black basic tee that I’m wearing has ruffle deets on the sleeves, making it anything but boring.

Nothing is cooler than flaunting your cool pair of shoes. Bonus point: cuffing your pants do elongate your figure!

  • Accessorize is KEY

Let your accessories spice up your outfit! You can always add a belt to cinch your waist and make your bottom anything but boring! Not to forget, bag plays a huge role in making your basics to a whole new level.

  • Don’t forget jewelry

Add a splash of glam to your outfit promises to make you look put together in no time. You can go for a statement necklace or earrings to make your entire outfit pop. Or you could polish your look with some delicate pieces.

  • Channel bold lip colour

If you’re a makeup junkie, this trick is for you! A bold lip colour is the easiest way to make you look from A to Z in seconds! I swear you could be wearing no other makeup, and simply swiping on some lip color just makes your face look more alive.

  • Drape a jacket or blazer over your shoulders

Whether it’s a denim jacket or a blazer, by draping them over your shoulders can make a big difference.
