Piece of the Week: The Asos Orange Hoodie
Spring is just around the corner and with that in mind this tangy orange hoodie from Asos looks like the perfect piece to get your wardrobe off to a vibrant start to the new season.
We love the way the hoodie has been spliced to reconfigure a traditional Northwestern college logo sweatshirt into a dissected design. It makes for a cool sartorial distortion. But its the addition of the flouncy sleeves that really elevates this piece past more traditional riffs on classic college apparel.
Wondering how to wear it?
Just check out all of the clever ways Asos’s own customers have worked the eye-catching piece into their existing wardrobe on the bottom of the hoodie’s item page in the #asseenonme section on it’s site. Our personal favorite take comes from Sandra Ebert of @black_palms. She decided to highlight the full cuff sleeves by layering a graphic black and which coat over the hoodie. It creates a striking contrast that both makes the hoodie pop but also keeps it from overpowering Ebert’s look.
