A hooded sweater, or better known as a hoodie, has become an essential part of everyone’s wardrobe. Regardless of age, gender expression or identity, this piece has found its way into our closets despite our tropical climate. Blame it on our “mall culture” or our obsession with traveling to chilly countries, the baggy silhouette, usually oversized fit and bulky but surprisingly cool hood, is irresistible for anyone who loves to keep it cozy but still fashion-forward.
The hoodie has also come a long way from its emergence in popular hiphop culture in the 1970s. Over the years it has since found its way on numerous catwalks and designer collections. Usually flaunting a luxury brand’s logo, a designer hoodie has become a classic statement piece you can dress up or down depending on your mood or personal style. That said, it is only right to invest in one that is timeless and in it for the long run.
