How to choose a hoodie (sweatshirt)
In order not to get confused in the variety of sweatshirts, we offer several rules for the right choice:
- The size. The sweatshirt should sit freely, but not dangle on the body, we recommend choosing a sweatshirt exactly in size, but not less. An exception is the so-called oversize size (+1), which will help to hide some figure flaws. However, this style should be played up with other items of clothing – trousers or jeans, accessories.
- Style. For sports activities and active walks, a sweatshirt-hoodie with a hood, pockets (preferably with zippers) is suitable, for an office or student audience, a sweatshirt in a dress code of an acceptable color scheme will be optimal. The jacket can be with a fastener, a small zipper at the collar, lacing, or it can simply be put on over the head.
- Material. A sweatshirt generally involves some warming, which allows, for example, to abandon the underwear in the form of a T-shirt. Fleece products are the softest, on the inside they have a small pile, the size of which is determined by the density of the fleece, there are also thin jackets. The footer is similar to fleece, but denser, the warmest are sweatshirts and velsoft products.
- Colors. The jacket can be of any color; to add personality, you can order a unique drawing that is applied with acrylic paints. Branded hoodies usually have a recognizable logo.
Next, we suggest getting to know the manufacturers whose hoodies are the most in demand.
