Hoodies – where do we even begin? Comfortable? Check. Versatile? Check. Gender-neutral? Check. An all-round fashion must-have? Check and CHECK!
You get our point. There is no end to what these amazing and popular garments have to offer, so it’s really no surprise how prominent they are in today’s pop culture, not to mention how they’re in almost all of our closets!
With their popularity increasing over time, it is understandable that their variations would only follow suit. Today, there are various types of hoodies, each with their own distinct features and style. Here’s a look at the 5 most popular types of hoodies in today’s fashion industry!
Fun Fact 1: Nike, Adidas, Champion, Vans, and Supreme are among the most popular hoodie brands in the world.
1. Zip-Up Hoodies
There’s no introducing this popular hoodie as they’re literally everywhere – colleges, malls, TV shows, gyms, and even offices!
Zip-up hoodies are extremely popular not only because they come in a variety of colours, designs, and sizes but also because of their zippers. Zippers increase versatility by allowing you to zip open when it’s too warm and zip shut when it’s too cold. Another reason zip-up hoodies are popular is that they can be worn over other garments, like t-shirts, without covering them up.
Oh, and of course, these zipping wonders are also popular among those who want to wear a hoodie without having their perfectly styled hair ruined in the process!
2. Pullover Hoodies
Pullover hoodies are the polar opposite of zip-up hoodies in that they do not have a zip and are, therefore, less versatile in comparison. However, because most of them have kangaroo pockets, they remain among the most popular types of hoodies today. Kangaroo pockets are two-way pockets that are typically found on the lower front section of pullover hoodies.
Drawstrings on pullover hoodies are another feature that contributes to their popularity. Drawstrings are a type of string, cord, or lace that is attached along the neckline of pullover hoodies to tighten or loosen the garment.
The best part about drawstrings is that if they ever come undone, you can easily reattach them yourself. There are plenty of DIY videos online on how to do so!
Fun Fact 2: Hoodies got their iconic big break in 1976 when A-list actor Sylvester Stallone wore one in his Oscar-winning American sports-drama film “Rocky.”
3. Fur Hoodies
Okay, this one’s a little uncommon in Singapore, but it’s a pretty obvious guess based on its name. Yes, it’s exactly what you’re thinking right now – fur hoodies are simply regular hoodies with the addition of nice, warm, and cosy fur.
So, why are fur hoodies uncommon in Singapore? Well, it’s because of their primary use case, which also happens to be the main reason why they’re so popular overseas. Fur hoodies are designed to withstand cold weather and seasons, and you already know that we don’t have those here.
But that doesn’t mean we can’t like or own a cute pair or two, now does it?
4. Sleeveless Hoodies
Sleeveless hoodies are immensely popular among teenagers, athletes, gym-goers, celebrities, and, well, pretty much everyone! Why? For starters, sleeveless hoodies are one of the few clothing items that have a tough appearance but are still extremely comfortable to wear.
There’s also the fact that sleeveless hoodies fit quite well with the whole “street style” fashion trend – one that’s popular among teenagers and celebrities. And, of course, it goes without saying that sleeveless hoodies are extremely airy, making them the preferred workout attire.
Unfortunately, however, as popular as sleeveless hoodies are as a clothing item, so are their social stigma, which is frequently reflected in their depiction in most crime movies and television shows.
5. Custom Hoodies
Custom hoodies are our absolute favourite among all the popular types of hoodies available today, so don’t be fooled by their ranking on this list; we were just saving the best for last!
Most of us are no strangers to customisations. We all love personalising things to suit our personality, style, faith, beliefs, moods, and whatnot. Now add that to an already comfortable and versatile garment. Enough said!
Fun Fact 3: There are a few well-known fashion brands overseas that specialise in designing and customising hoodies for puppies and dogs. Among them are Lucy & Co., PetHaus, and wagwear.
