My Quest For Pretty: The Hoodie

Inspired by my Life's A Debate Post on Does This Come in Pretty, I have decided to embark on a mission to find the prettier versions of all life's essentials (and not-so-essentials). However since we do not all have access to the same stores and stuff and since we all have different tastes, I am just gonna give you a low down of what I think is lovely. Feel free to give me your own thoughts and opinions too.

My Top 5 Favorite types of super pretty hoodies :
  1. Plaid and tartan prints: Ever since I saw my current favorite hoodie at the store I knew it was the one. A good plaid print (especially if its black on a white background) has the ability to transform a simple hoodie into something unique, classy and potentially whimsical in style. This style is very big right now so you are likely to find the perfect one for your personality.
  2. Polka dots: I LOVE polka dots! Big or small, multicoloured or single toned, they are just the thing to add that extra punch of fun to any outfit. And although I believe in mixing prints, I have to admit this is something one should be careful with. (More on mixing prints successfully soon to come.)
  3. Asymetrical and funky cuts: This is a more avante-garde way of getting a lovely hoodie. Granted it might be harder to find, but you can be rest assured that when you do find one with unusual sleeves, a longer cut, or achitectural shape, that you will stand out and in a good way.
  4. Bright, bright colours: With the fast approach of winter and the abundance of rainy, dull and overcast days, there is no better way that I can think of to radiate your inner sunshine than by wearing a brightly coloured hoodie. I favour colours like aqua blue, rose violet, and other jewel tones for the fall, but yellow, orange and other warm colours work well too.

  5. Unusual materials: You can break away from the traditionally cotton hoodies and try out something a little more unique. For example some people like to reuse knitwear and turn it into other clothes, and you could try using old sweaters to make a 'new' hoodie, that will truly be one of a kind. If DIY isnt for you though, Etsy is a always a safe bet to find that funky piece that will make your wardrobe.
