This summer, it’s time to slip into something a little more comfortable. Hoodies are in again and they are no longer reserved for Sunday afternoons on the sofa. Fashion’s obsession with casual chic started with too cool for school streetwear, but the trend has gone on to become far more versatile than you might expect. As proven so many times in fashion, layering is key. This trend isn’t about throwing a navy or grey marl Polo Ralph Lauren hoodie on with your jeans and heading out of the door. There’s more thought behind it than that.

Instead, layer your hoodie beneath a blazer or over a slip dress. Wear it beneath a leather jacket and let your hoodie sleeves hang slightly longer. Alternatively, do as we have done here and wind a colour clashing ESCADA SPORT scarf beneath the hood, leaving it to trail either side of an open zip. The result is a look which whispers ‘yacht club summers in St Tropez’ without looking like you’ve tried too hard. In fact, this is one look for spring/summer 2017 that requires little trying at all to come off on trend.
