Hoodies are the embodiment of comfort and versatility. They are perfect for lounging around the house or for going to the gym over sweats or leggings.  

Running errands in a blustering storm? Your favorite, most comfortable hoodie is on hand to keep you dry and provide extra warmth.  

The hoodie’s humble beginnings began in Medieval Europe when monks wore hooded tunics called cowls, and outdoor workers beat the cold with a hooded cape known as a chaperon. 

Akin to a nun’s habit, who would have thought Medieval monks would eventually bring us this iconic hooded sweatshirt?  

Since then, they have undergone an incredible style revolution and gained popularity as a result of the rise of hip-hop culture in New York. 

Hoodies have evolved from a simple male outer garment to become a trendy statement piece for top designer labels and are often featured on catwalks worldwide.    

This timeless piece is a must-have in your wardrobe and along with jeans and t-shirts, they are an essential part of everyday attire. 

Which Types of Hoodies Are the Best for Women? 

With the huge variety of chic designs such as longline and cropped and materials like cashmere and cotton, you need to know which are the best hoodies for ladies.  

As stylish as they are snug, make sure you buy a hoodie that fits your tastes and specific needs. 

Keep reading to see some of the best hoodies for every occasion.

Stripes are a firm favorite in the fashion world and on this classic fit hoodie, they give you a fresh, youthful look. 

Pair it with a fitted leather jacket and black skinnies or leggings, and you are all set for a night out on the town. 

Our nautical-themed striped hoodie is also appropriate as Casual Friday at the office when worn with wide-leg jeans or trousers, a pair of high heels, and a blazer. 

 Dressed up or down, this cute hoodie is a necessity for every woman’s wardrobe. 

Longer Line Hoodie

Longer Line Hoodie by Arlo Blue

Based on the classic, oversized hoodie trend, this longer-lined cotton hoodie adds a unique feminine twist with a rounded slit hem. 

Whether you choose the light grey, charcoal, or black version, it is best worn over tights and the slit design creates an attractive silhouette while providing the comfort of a relaxed-fit hoodie. 

This cotton-blend hoodie is perfect for layering if it’s extremely cold. Start with a cotton t-shirt under a heavy-weight long-sleeved tee followed by your longline hoodie of choice, and a full zip jacket.  

It is also one of the best hoodies for women in warmer months when worn with knee-length boots over black leggings.    

Cropped Hoodie

Crop tops are all the rage so why not cropped hoodies? 

This version of a round-neck hoodie is cut off at the hem and can reach anywhere from under your bust to just above your waistline. 

Granted, cropped hoodies are not very practical but as it often is in the fashion world, it’s not about practicality, it’s all about the looks. And these mini hooded sweatshirts sure look good!  

This is the epitome of athleisure which is the art of transforming comfy, everyday clothes into chic, fashion-worthy outfits.   

Paired with sweatpants or leggings, this look is where yoga class and coffee date collide. 

If you feel like there is too much skin on display, create a flattering silhouette with a fitted strap top under your hoodie for a bit more coverup.    

Longline Hoodie with Kangaroo Pouch 

Perfect for a spin class or just a walk in the park, this longline hoodie comes with a convenient kangaroo pouch to stash your keys. 

The longer design makes sure the hoodie does not ride up giving you the freedom to really get into workouts. 

The cotton and fleece hoodie is Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) certified which means it is produced under lawful, safe, humane, and ethical conditions.

With a comfy, relaxed-fit design, this hooded sweatshirt is your go-to piece as the weather starts to change. 

Sustainable Hoodies

Fast fashion. This describes the state of the fashion world as designers reinventing their latest pieces, and fashion-forward buyers chasing the new trend. 

Its seasonal nature means few items of clothing stay in style for very long, as so an endless cycle of buying and discarding clothes becomes never-ending — the polar opposite of what sustainability means. 

According to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, the number of times we wear clothes has decreased by over 36% since 2000. Buyers across the globe waste an average of $460 billion by throwing away clothes that they could continue to wear. 

True, clothes made with low-grade materials go through rapid wear and tear, so the production of high-quality clothing is the first step in encouraging buyers to wear them for longer periods. 

The good news though is that the industry is finally moving towards more eco-friendly production methods. 

As the fashion industry tries to move towards a more sustainable future, Arlo Blue is excited to be a part of the change by providing durable outfits.

Designed with versatility and quality in mind, we are working to help reduce the need to shop for new clothes. We make it easy for you to make a positive change in your clothing choices without having to spend extra time or money.

We aim to give you clothes that pass the 30 wears test. When buying an item of clothing, ask yourself, “Will I wear it at least 30 times?” If the answer is yes, then buy it.       

Our classic hoodie designs definitely pass this test as we create clothing that is made to last more than just one season. 

Whether you choose a sherpa hoodie, or a zip hoodie with dropped shoulders, our hooded sweatshirts are made with high-quality cotton blend 

Are Hoodies Still in Style in 2021?

You may think that hoodies have been around for so long, surely they’re outdated. We say no! Never! 

Because of the versatility and comfort hoodies offer, adding complementary items of clothing and striking accessories can give this a trendy new look every single day. 

Check out some ideas to inspire you when styling your hoodie outfit.  

Exude Chilled Vibes as Denim Meets Hoodie 

What is it about denim jackets that makes them so irresistible? 

From humble beginnings — just like the hoodie — it has become an iconic fashion symbol representing youthfulness and free expression. Maybe this is why the two are a match made in heaven!.  

When put together, a grey longline hoodie under a waist-length denim jacket gives you a cool, laid-back look. 

As a rule of thumb, pair a light blue jacket with a light-colored hoodie and your favorite pair of blue jeans for a casual, edgy vibe. 

For a more polished look, rev up the style factor with a charcoal-colored hoodie, and dark blue denim jacket over sleek black trousers and pointed heels.  

Get Sassy With a Bold Cropped Hoodie

For those times when you are feeling a little bit diva-ish, this one’s right up your alley.

Spruce up the boring image that hoodies can sometimes have with a bright cropped hoodie and matching sweat pants. 

Add ankle boots to make a bold statement and switch the sweatpants for high-waisted pants to emphasize a curvy, hourglass figure.  

A longer, more neutral-colored cropped hoodie is ideal to wear to and from the gym or just to hang out with your mates.
