I know what you’re thinking...hoodies in the Summer? Can’t be true. WELL IT IS. I’m here to tell you why.
Before 2020 I was the type of person to accumulate hoodies and crewnecks, only to abandon them in my closet for my favorite jacket. Year after year. I wanted the aesthetic of a cute hoodie, but didn’t want the overheating that came with it. Then, I started this job. Suddenly I realized why hoodies were a necessity. The office is freezing. Upon gathering the opinions from friends elsewhere, I realized this was a common thing. You either pony up and get a sweater, or you freeze to death at work.
THEN...the pandemic happened. Now working from home, I sadly neglected my hoodies again. I mean c’mon...I don’t have AC...how can I match that same office energy? It’s called many outfit changes ladies and wieners. In the morning it’s cold, so I wear a hoodie. In the evening, it’s cold again, here I come for another hoodie. BALANCE. So, why does this matter? You may be wondering how hoodies can possibly fit into hot girl Summer. So, let me enlighten you with my new found knowledge.
I recently found out that if you pair a hoodie with the right kind of bottoms, it actually doesn’t look bummy at all. I’m SURE everyone here knows that. However, maybe you’re like me and really wore them like a mess. So, what do I do? While most of my hoodies and crewnecks are oversized, we can work with it. I mean hello, ARIANA GRANDE, ANYONE? She is always rocking the hoodie dress. I am now on board. I also don’t want to hear anyone tell me they’re too tall to rock the oversized hoodie. It’s called shorts underneath. Even leggings! I mean, men have been rocking massive hoodies with jeans for years, so ladies it’s our time to shine.
However, some days I like to keep it simple. I want a hoodie that’s a little roomy and comfy, but also doesn’t completely drown out my figure. Men and women alike have probably felt this way at some point. So...keep it just that...simple. If you have a more fitted hoodie or crew neck, throwing it on with a decent pair of jeans changes the game. If you have cute sandals or cool sneakers this is a plus. Even using accessories can take a simple hoodie from frumpy to hot girl/boy summer really quick. Am I late to this? I feel like I am and you all have known this for a while. AGAIN, hoping someone out there understands me.
Oh you’re lame and DON’T have a hoodie? Good thing I’m dropping the link to where you can find some below.
