A Hoodie How To


Your wardrobe is about to get a lot cooler. Style wise, that is. Sweatshirts and hoodies are replacing your cozy sweaters and chic blouses this winter.

Fashion in a word is, unpredictable. One minute the runways have us coveting over chic, designer footwear and clothing. The next, they’re directing us towards our local sporting goods stores for basic athletic wear.

What’s even more unpredictable? How long a trend will last. Sometimes it’s one cycle, gone before the next fashion week. Other times it can last for nearly a decade, like the Athleisure trend. Athletic clothing and fashion go way back to the 2010s. However, over the last few years, the rise of street style has glammed up this look. And now we can’t wait to sport it (pun totally intended).
