A leavers hoodie is a versatile piece of your wardrobe that can be styled in a variety of different ways.

Casual Cool

The most straightforward way to wear your leavers hoodie is in a casual, relaxed style. Pair it with your favourite jeans and trainers for a look that never goes out of style.

Sporty Look

For those who enjoy a more sporty style, your leavers hoodie is a perfect option. Combine it with joggers or leggings and a pair of sporty trainers. This look is not only comfortable but also cool enough for a coffee run or a casual study session in the library before your exams. 


Layering is a great way to extend the life of your hoodie especially when we come into the colder months. Choose to wear your leavers hoodie under a puffer jacket or a waterproof coat for added warmth. And why not pair this with comfy and warm boots and you have an outfit that’s perfect for winter. 

Office & Work Experience Ready

You can also style your leavers hoodie for a more formal setting! Wondering what to wear to your work experience? Try styling your leavers hoodie! Pair your leavers hoodie with a blazer and tailored trousers for a smart-casual office environment. For work places with strict dress codes, keep the hoodie colour neutral and ensure the rest of your outfit is smart and professional. Finish the outfit off with a pair of loafers or work appropriate footwear, and you’re ready for your work experience in an office.

Accessories All the Way

Accessorising can transform your hoodie from simple and plain to eye-catching. Pair your leavers hoodie with statement earrings and a chunky watch to add your own style to your leavers hoodie outfit. Or try adding a stylish rucksack to elevate the simple hoodie and jeans combo whilst remaining practical.

Festival and Concert Fun

Festivals and concerts are the perfect venue to show off your leavers hoodie in a super fun way. Layer it over a colourful long sleeve top, add some comfortable shorts, and finish with boots or durable trainers. And most importantly, don’t forget a waterproof jacket in case the weather turns.

Beach Days

Evenings by the beach can get chilly, making your leavers hoodie an essential item. Throw it over a tank top and shorts for a cosy, beach ready outfit. A pair of flip-flops and some sunglasses will complete your relaxed and practical beach look.

Experiment with different styles to find how your leavers hoodies best suit your personal style, and remember that wearing your leavers hoodie, represents your achievements and the wonderful memories of your time at school. Whether you’re at home, out with friends, or on a fun day out, your leavers hoodie can be a go-to outfit choice that combines comfort with style.
