As we enter the holiday season, the age-old predicament of mastering dressing up during the colder months is once again upon us. Besides figuring out footwear that factors in rain, cold, and unclean public transport, maintaining comfort and warmth are the next biggest challenges when it comes to achieving fall and winter glam.

Earlier this year Tom Ford dropped sheer and bodycon hooded dresses for Fall/Winter ’22, giving the hood its official invitation to formal dress codes this season. In September, Saint Laurent sent a slew of dresses with hoods down the Spring/Summer ’23 runway, paying homage to the house’s early ’90s hooded archives. In the last month alone, creative director Anthony Vaccarello’s draped maxis with built-in hoods have received stamps of approval from red carpet regulars Olivia Wilde, Laura Harrier, and Blackpink’s Rosé Park.

Elsewhere, Halpern’s Spring/Summer ’23 collection included a leopard print hooded gown and Alaïa added hoods to various silhouettes, from cutout, feather-trimmed dresses to silver sequinned sets. On the red carpet in the last few weeks, Kate Moss upgraded her iconic ’90s naked dress with a sheer, hooded Saint Laurent iteration, Natalia Bryant opted for Tom Ford in a full Barbiecore moment, and Addison Rae tied back her tresses under the hood of a preloved Gareth Pugh mini.

In September I, too, indulged in my own hooded fashion moment (I am a trend-setter after all) by opting for a floor-length, hooded knit dress by Amsterdam streetwear label Daily Paper. I was immediately sold on the idea of wearing a hood to the club. While adding an air of mystery to my night-out look, an added bonus was that the sleek style kept my shaved head warm.

Granted, some logistics are harder to pin down — literally and figuratively — as those with hair might need to commit to a full-time hood-up moment to avoid hoodie hair. But this also means that there are plenty of hairstyles to try: see Rosé Park’s effortlessly undone side plait for reference.

When it comes to accessorizing, the beauty of the hooded look is that it can be easily dressed up or down. Don’t be afraid to layer — take notes from Saint Laurent’s motorcycle jackets and structured coats — and style with heels or sneakers, depending on the motive.

27 Long-Sleeve Wedding Guest Dresses to Look Chic While Warding Off the Chill

  27 Long-Sleeve Wedding Guest Dresses to Look Chic While Warding Off the Chill You’ve RSVP-ed to the invite and got your date lined up, but wondering what to wear to a fall or winter wedding? No worries, there’s a long-sleeve wedding guest dress that’ll be as fun as any strappy summer look, but suitably covered up for the season. Especially appropriate for evening weddings, most long-sleeve wedding guest dresses skew toward the more formal, but even the most basic black look can be jazzed up with colorful accessories and dare we say it, a feathered evening bag. Here’s our 27 picks for the dresses that will get you noticed as a guest of stye and distinction.

Perhaps linked to the surge of last winter’s balaclava trend (which is still very much on trend this season), the hooded dress is an opportunity for us to really experiment with fashion in ways that we might not have before. Although, similar to the balaclava trend, it is worth noting fashion’s hypocrisy towards Muslim women when it comes to the connotations of wearing the hijab versus a trendy hooded dress.

Keeping these politics in mind, this marriage of loungewear and partywear is one that we can definitely expect to hit the market — and your winter parties — in the coming months.
