Hoodies are one of the most misunderstood pieces of clothing. When they first came onto the scene, they were lambasted for being a signature of troublesome youth culture or laziness.
Despite their practicality, many consumers wrote them off at the time. What a shame that is, as hoodies are one of the best-selling clothing items on the market, and there’s good reason for it. There’re so many on trend ways to wear them, and they’re worth investing your money in. With a vast range of designs to choose from, let’s take a look at some fashionable ways to wear hoodies in 2016.

The Traditional ‘Sport’ Hoodie
A traditional hoodie is something that’ll suit anyone. These designs have come a long way since their inception. They also regularly incorporate stylish materials with a bunch of various hood sizes. While the majority are ‘over-the-head’ hoodies, you can also find a variety of different designs.
An excellent way to stay fashionable is to invest in a vest hoodie. These will provide you with a little extra warmth in the summer (or even in the gym) without looking out of place.
They also offer a more than adequate alternative to a full-blown jacket. Of course, the added option of a hood doesn’t just protect you from the weather; it makes you stand out and look the part.
By branded hoodies, I don’t mean slapping a logo on the front and jacking up the price. There’re some well-designed ideas out there for anyone that’s looking to sport their favourite band, game or sports team. For example, if you’re a game fan, you can visit his.boutique for some Assassins Creed-inspired hoodie designs. Again, branded hoodies come in a wide range of styles, so you’ll almost always be able to find what you’re looking for.

This style is a little different from most sports-orientated ones that we talked about earlier. These hoodies often favor fashion over practicality, so you’ll find that they’re made of thinner material. The ability to zip-up allows you to wear them casually as a jacket. Obviously, you can use them as a traditional hoodie when the weather’s particularly poor as well.
Tailor Your Hoodie!
Not every hoodie fits into a specific category. Some have different styles of collar, such as double-collar or high collar. Some are designed like winter jumpers, but with a hood on the top to match. Some people go even further, making their own DIY hoodies to suit any situation. You can turn your hoodie into any kind of fashion accessory you desire. As you can see, there’s no limit to what you can do with a hoodie. Even if you’re not very creative, new designs are coming out all the time, and there’s bound to be something that will take your fancy.
As one of the most popular styles of clothing in the world, hoodies are a fashion item that’s perfect for any situation, in any weather. Find the design you want, and you’ll be looking great in no time!
