Best Hoodies for Winter
Wearing hoodies and sweatpants wasn’t exactly the norm when it came to dressing appropriately for events. It still isn’t, but who cares what someone thinks, right. Just like many people I wholeheartedly am jealous of Pete Davidson as he gets to work every day of his life wearing a comfortable hoodie.
For someone who is into wearing hoodies as a part of their daily life, I sure had close to no idea how a hoodie came to be. Now, if you’re a normal person or just not ME, you wouldn’t mind giving a second thought to it. But it’s me and I decided to look it up and well… it was interesting.
HOODIE HISTORY 101
According to design curator Paola Antonelli, the hoodie’s history stretches back over 3,000 years to the ancient Greeks and Romans. Yes, your fave sweatshirt’s ancestors were invented before democracy itself. Hoodies would once again have a moment with Medieval monks. Think: piousness… but make it fashion.
Following the turn of the century, for better or for worse, Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg defied corporate norms by making a hoodie, t-shirt and jeans his every day #OOTD. It was a fashion moment that turned into a movement. (Who wears a suit anymore?) Following in the (bare) footsteps of dot-com tycoons before him, he shifted workplaces and wardrobes towards simplicity, creativity and casualness.
Well Anyway, winter is well on its way now and I cannot imagine anything better than to snuggle up in my favorite hoodie and read a book or preferably watch Schitt’s Creek and mildly crush over Dan Levy. It’s pretty obvious I have traction for hoodies (and Dan Levy apparently) and I felt the need to share my opinions on some of the Best Hoodies for Winter you can purchase for the upcoming winter season and if you’re as lucky as the aforementioned SNL cast member, you might just be able to sport it at your workplace.

This converse hoodie is a modern take on the classic one-color pullover hoodie with its kangaroo pockets and classic stitch design with a Converse Logo on the back. You can purchase these for 65$ on the converse website or Amazon. Click here to purchase.
One of my absolutely favorite Best Hoodies for Winter that I have seen around on the internet is the comfy original. If having a comically oversized hoodie is not enough of a reason to purchase it, the fact that it is one of the cheapest hoodies with excellent cloth material should convince you. It comes in at $35. It works not only as a hoodie but also works as a blanket when you lie down on your couch on a comfy Saturday night binging Schitt’s Creek and finishing a tub of Ben And Jerry’s.

H&M Orange Hoodie
Next to our list of the Best Hoodies for Winter is the infamous Pete Davidson Orange Hoodie! How can I miss this one? Remember when I said it was a privilege to get to wear hoodies to work every day, I meant Pete Davidson and his Orange Hoodie. Even seen wearing it by his ex-girlfriend, Ariana Grande, I feel like this minimalistic design is elegantly beautiful. It even made it on air on one of the episodes of SNL last year! Given that it is an H&M hoodie, it is cheaper than all the other Best Hoodies for Winter on this list. You can purchase it on the H&M Website. Click here to buy.
