The Coolest Combination Right Now? Slip Dresses And Hoodies


by Marie Kelly
16th Feb 2018

It’s the ultimate style juxtaposition; the most utilitarian of items (hoodies) paired with the sexiest (slip dresses). And this is how it’s done. To get the look, shop our edit below.

This fitted dress from & Other Stories amps up the sexy vibe with its rhinestone straps. Pair with a fine knit hoodie or something with a stretch fabric so that it will sit seamlessly beneath. Choosing a hooded top from a brand such as Nike or Adidas will amplify the contrast between sporty and sexy even further.

Bodycon dress with rhinestone straps, €59 at & Other Stories

This H&M hooded top is ideal for this kind of contrasting look. It’s textured, it has a strong sportswear vibe and the colour will work equally well with neutrals or brights.

Seamless hooded top, €27.99 at H&M

This Uterque dress is a real statement making piece. Just as the leather jacket it’s styled with gives it a less pretty, more street vibe, so too will a hooded top. Maintain the colour block by choosing a hoodie in a potent Crayola-type colour. Cobalt blue would work wonderfully.

Two tone slip dress, €150 at uterque.com

Cos does understatement beautifully. I love this merino wool hoodie from its new collection. It’s tactile without being chunky and it has a lovely drape to it, so it will sit effortlessly beneath a slip dress.
