Baja hoodies, also referred to as hippie hoodies, are poncho pullovers decorated with bands of solid colors. They are typically made of recycled or eco-friendly materials and are unbelievably comfortable. Baja Hoodies are also extremely versatile and lend themselves to many outfit combinations. For both men and women, knowing what to wear with your Baja Hoodie is a great way to get the most use out of it.
Dressing up Baja Hoodies can be a bit of a challenge, although it is a little easier for women than it is for men. Throw on a pair of last season’s skinny jeans, preferably in a dark wash, and a pair of gladiator sandals without too many straps, and voila! While this may not exactly be “dressy” it is a nicely pulled together look that mixes the casual feel of the hoodie with the more tailored look of the shoes and jeans, which creates a nice balance.
There is a limited amount of ways for men to dress up a Baja Hoodie without looking silly. Could you imagine tossing on a pair of shiny oxfords? Probably not. However, since these hoodies come in an almost unlimited amount of colors, try matching them to your favorite well cared for pair of kicks and a nice pair of shorts. For the even more daring, try a modestly colored hoodie, a pair of khakis and boating shoes.
Dressing down these hoodies is a snap. You can mix Baja Hoodies with any casual items in your closet and will most likely be able to pull off a relaxed look. Try going with the distressed shorts and the sneakers or flip flops that create the laidback look these hoodies were born to accompany. This combo is perfect for skating, hanging at the beach or going out with friends.
With this type of hoodie, it is incredibly easy to achieve the “just rolled out of bed look”. Pick your favorite distressed jeans and that old pair of chucks you might still have, if not flip-flops will do. This is a great combo for a breezy spring or summer day.
There is also the option of dressing the hoodie down even more by using it as a coverall for the beach. Though the hoodies look like they may be stifling, they really aren’t. They can also act as a towel, which makes them the perfect beach accessory. For this beach look, simply throw the hoodie on over your swimsuit and a pair of flip-flops, no shorts required.
Baja Hoodies have recently made their comeback on the runway and in fashion shows, but you may not own one yet. However, now you should feel confident knowing how to wear one. You may even be thinking about adding this fun versatile item to your closet!
