Even in tropical Manila, the temperature towards the latter part of the year calls for bundling up. You’ve probably got your fair share of sweaters, zip-up jackets, cardigans, and all that, but we’re here to make the case for the unsung hero of outerwear: the hoodie. Hoodies, in our opinion, are the perfect piece of clothing to rock not only when it’s cold outside, but also when you’re just too lazy to put an outfit together. Not only are they warm and cozy, but they’re effortlessly cool and stylish. Plus, if your hoodie is big enough, you won’t even need to wear bottoms. Just throw it on, slip into your favorite sneakers, and you’re ready to head out the door. If you don’t have your own hooded pullover just yet, we round up some oversized hoodies and hoodie dresses you can shop now—no pants required.
These oversized hoodies are perfect for getting cozy:
1. Oversized Cotton Hoodie
You can’t go wrong with nudes and this minimalist H&M hoodie is the perfect piece if you’re going for a pristine, neutral look. Just slip it on over your head and you’ll instantly be rocking 60s-mod-meets-normcore vibes. Pair with your fave white sneakers to finish off the look!
2. Line Life Hood Sweat Dress
If you prefer a less baggy look, the hoodie dress from Jacqueline De Yong has a straight-cut, A-line silhouette that would look more structured and put-together than most hoodies out there—as flattering as a casual Sunday dress, but much comfier. We love this chic sage hue, but you can also get the piece in deep olive and black.
Line Life Hood Sweat Dress, P2449, JACQUELINE DE YOUNG, Available online
3. Double Face Long Sleeve Sweat Hoodie
This cream-colored Uniqlo hoodie is made more feminine and form-flattering thanks to the slits on either side. It’s available in several neutral and muted shades including black, off-white, brown, beige, and more. Pair it with your fave jeans, your go-to leggings, or your comfiest sweatpants.
4. Hoodie Sweater Dress
If you’re more of a maxi-dress-over-mini-dress kind of person—or you just get extra chilly when your legs aren’t covered up—you’ll love this extra-long hoodie dress from Lowrys Farm, which you can cop in pink, white, and brown. The relaxed but straight-cut fit is both breathable and form-flattering.
Hoodie Sweater Dress, P4469, LOWRYS FARM, Available online
5. Oversized Hoodie
We can’t take our eyes off the pastel lavender shade on this oversized hoodie from Zara. The piece sports chic-but-subtle details like the monochromatic colorway, ridged hem and sleeves, and glossy drawstring aglets. It’s also available in black, white, brown, and gray.
6. Red Longline Hoodie
Red dresses and red lipsticks are known for their stand-out, statement-making power—but who has the time to dress up or put makeup on these days anyway? You can go for the same eye-catching ensemble minus the hassle of actually trying to dress up with this bright red Topshop hoodie.
Red Longline Hoodie, P2195, TOPSHOP, Available online
7. DBTK x Sesame Street Vintage Script Hoodie
This hoodie from local streetwear brand Don’t Blame the Kids is vintage-television-meets-quirky-millennial-fashion thanks to the cute patches on the sleeves that feature famous Sesame Streetcharacters like Big Bird, Elmo, Ernie, Cookie Monster, and more. Despite the vibrant patches, the predominantly muted tone on the fabric will still let you pair the piece with pretty much any bottoms.

8. SBB Logo Hoodie
Gray hoodies are a staple of the "I woke up like this" aesthetic and every laid-back dresser knows that for a fact. You can cop your own from local brand Nobody. This hoodie has the same ultra-casual look as a plain gray pullover, but with a streetwear flair thanks to the graffiti-like logo on the front and back.

9. Oversized Hooded Sweatshirt
If you love rocking all-white ensembles, this Bershka hoodie would be a great addition to your wardrobe. It’s long enough to be worn as a dress and you can pair it with pretty much any pair of shoes from white sneakers to combat boots to chunky sandals. It also comes in muted pink, cotton candy blue, and black—you’ll want to collect them all!

Sportswear enthusiasts, this no-frills Adidas hoodie featuring the Trefoil logo in white against black fabric would fit right into your athleisure aesthetic. You can stick to a no-fail all-black look by pairing it with black sneakers, leggings, caps, and more. But of course, we know it’ll go with pretty much anything.
