Winter is almost upon us, and perhaps some of us have already started reassembling our wardrobe for the season. To help you get started, we have even discussed essential winter wardrobe staples every man must consider.
Today, we will be talking about one essential item from that list, which is “Hoodie.”
Hoodie plays an important role in completing your winter collection. Not only because it is warm and cozy but also because of the fact that it keeps our ears protected from the cold breezes of the season.
Hoodie has a long history of being the style icon of the rebellious teens. However, with the passage of time, the perceptive surrounding the garment has significantly changed. Perhaps, it is because of the sartorial tweaks that have been made on it over the years.
Now, hoodies are worn not only by the teens but also by men in their 40’s and even 50’s. Read on to know more about the types of hoodies and how to wear it.
Types of Hoodies
Hoodies come in a variety of styles. To learn what style would suit you or the occasion, it is best to know a bit about each type.
Let’s start with one of the most common or, perhaps, popular type which is the zip-up hoodie. As the name suggests, this type of hoodie comes with an attached zip that extends from the hood and goes all the way to the bottom of the garment.
The zip-up style makes this hoodie an easy-to-wear winter wear. It doesn’t need to be slipped over the head. All you need to do is pick it up, wear it as you do the shirts and zip it up. That’s all.
When it comes to styling, you can not only wear it with the zips up all the time. For a more relaxed look, you can even leave the zippers open. In fact, you can leave the zippers undone to boast the inner layer which could be a shirt or a T.
Another commonly wear ensemble, pullover Hoodie comes with no zip but only strings that are fasten to the Hoodie itself. You only need to tighten them or loosen them up to adjust the Hoodie over your head.
Unlike zip-up Hoodie, this type of garment often comes in loose fitting. It may be great for chill weather but it cannot be worn in most occasions.
Hoodie Outfits You Can Try
Let’s check out the various Hoodie outfits that you can try.
Sporty Zip-Up Hoodie
The sporty zip-up Hoodie, as the name suggest, is a perfect sportswear for the winter. An early jogging or stroll in the park during the cold mornings of winter can be quite uncomfortable unless you have covered your ears and other parts of the body well.
The sporty Hoodie comes with not only zip but also drawstrings so that you can tighten up the Hoodie to let no air in. Moreover, the cotton fabric of the garment would soak the sweat while you are treading.
