A hoodie is not exactly a new trend to hit the runways this autumn, we’ve all been on the hoodie bandwagon for quite some time. In fact, hooded garments have been around since the 12th century, and the first hooded sweatshirt was created by Champion in the 1930’s. ‘Rocky’ then hit the screens in 1976 and made the hoodie iconic and in the 1990’s they were given the name ‘hoodie’.
However, as much as we’ve all had our trusty hoodies for years, most of us are guilty of not styling these properly and fallen into a trap of exclusively using hoodies for comfort instead of for style.
A hoodie is so much more than the basic grey drawstring we all gravitate to on a chilly evening, and we’ve rounded up our favourites to show you just how versatile the hoodie can be.
The One with a Zip
We cannot keep up with the weather at the moment, one minute we are in a heatwave and the next it’s storming and cold outside. A zip-up hoodie is just so easy to take on and off, as and when the weather changes. The Michael hoodie is 100% cotton so is warm yet breathable, and always in style. The Michael hoodie elevates your standard grey hoodie by adding pops of colour and contrasting panels.
The One with the Pocket
While autumn will be cool enough to bring your warmer layers out from the depths of your wardrobe, it’s not quite time for winter coats. Nothing is better than popping on a hoodie with a generous pocket, which means you don’t need to wear your coat too for the pockets. The Travis hoodie has stylish cut and sew panels that allows you to mix and match with other Studio A garments.
The One to Wear with Shorts
Jofra Crew Neck Sweater
OK, I know this isn’t technically a hoodie, but we couldn’t just ignore this sweatshirt which was perfect for styling with shorts. For that awkward in-between weather, sometimes a full tracksuit is just too warm and we love styling sweatshirts with shorts - especially if they co-ordinate. The Jofra crew neck sweater is designed with sustainability in mind and is soft and breathable to wear.
The One for Winter Nights
For comfort and cosiness, you cannot do better than fleece. Even better, a fleece with a stylish half zip, oversized fit and useful pocket. The Marshall Fleece works perfectly with any of the joggers in our range and is an essential for the autumn and winter.
The One that goes with Everything
We may have called it basic, but let's be honest we do all need a staple grey hoodie in our wardrobes. The two-tone colours of the Kendrick Hoodie are perfect for mixing and matching with other Studio A garments and is guaranteed to go with all your outfits, and if you’re at a loss you can always rely on the matching Kendrick joggers!
Hopefully we have given you some inspiration for the Autumn/Winter season 2022, and proven that a hoodie is more than just an extra layer - they're a staple in every wardrobe. To shop all our looks head to our website.
