The Best Hoodies for Women: Ultimate Guide

Hoodie, it’s in the name – a hooded sweatshirt or jacket. A casual piece of clothing which is practical and comfortable. Pull it over your head or zip it up, the humble hoodie has stolen the limelight this past year as people have stayed at home and comfort was definitely key. It’s a must-have item that you’re able to grab in quickness and pretty much goes with everything. If you like the look of a hoodie but you’re not quite sure how to wear them or what to wear them with. Read on.

How to Wear a Hoodie

Women’s hoodies are great for layering, you can wear them over t-shirts and jumpers as well as being able to layer a jacket over the top of them if the weather is cooler, depending on the fit. They are easily incorporated into your every day look as they come in a variety of different styles and colours depending on the intended use. It can be for lounging around the house aka ‘home hoodie’ or it can be used leisurely for running or heading to the gym. Before you purchase a hoodie – consider the following…

The Fit

Hoodies are designed to be comfortable, if you’re looking for a skinny fit/fitted hoodie they just don’t exist. If you’re looking for regular fit so that you’re able to wear a jacket over the top of it, look for one that is form fitting.


We all love a neutral coloured hoodie, we stay in our comfort zone with the colours black, navy, grey and white and well, quite right as they tend to go with a lot of items already in our wardrobes. However, hoodies are fun and making a statement with a bold colour or printed design will give you a subtle addition to your outfit.


Hoodies come in an assortment of different materials from fleece, cotton, polyester and jersey. These are the most popular fabrics you’ll come across online and in stores as you begin your search. Fleece is a great choice for hoodies as it’s comfortable and traps in your body heat, it is also soft to the touch and can withstand some light drizzle and can be worn all year round. Sweatshirt fabric features a high proportion of cotton, making it breathable and soft against the skin while keeping up with all of your activities. Polyester is durable and moisture-wicking and can be easily washed and dried.
