Hoodies were created in the 1930s but not really an apparel type that became popular until the 1970s (thanks mostly to feature film Rocky). Hoodies then became really popular in the 1990s, thanks to the fashion brand Champion. Today, hoodies are a classic fashion staple for girls and guys. They vary in different styles and colors — from zip-up hoodies, to cute hoodies for women, to crop top hoodies and pullover ones.
The hoodie is often a perfect clothing item because it can help conceal yourself in a mush of plush softness. It’s a fashion staple for when you’re tired and want to hide yourself, or hope people will get the signal that when your hood is on, you don’t want to be talked to.
Additionally, though, a good hoodie is perfect for a variety of occasions. It can keep you warm on a winter day, or be a perfect accessory for a summer night spent on the beach. A hoodie can just make an outfit become something and gives you a soft space to exist.
