fash•ion (fash-uh n) | the anti-hoodie

I'm convinced that the perfect replacement for a hoodie is a good oversized sweater. It's cozy, it's comfy and it's nowhere near as offensive as a sloppy hooded sweatshirt. Don't get me wrong, I do not blame anyone for owning one - after all who can resist it on cold winter days?  But the choice to wear one beyond a trip to the gym or outside of your home is one that can be stopped.  Just say no to the hoodie and say yes to alternate options - like an oversized sweater.

|Are you a recovering hoodie-holic?  What are your thoughts on making a hoodie a part of an everyday look?|

I used to wear a hoodie a lot to hide. I just wore jeans and a hoodie. Now I only own one and feel so weird when I do wear it. I almost don't feel feminine for some strange reason.
I think theres a time and a place for them but i think sometimes they are way overused and I was one of those people.

Agreed! I wouldn't say that I was ever addicted to the hoodie, but I still find myself wishing for a comfy, easy addition to an outfit on super-cold days. I've been noticing the lack of a good replacement in my wardrobe lately, and I think I need to go find a great oversized sweater to fill it!

I'm not a recovering hoodie-holic, I AM a hoodie-holic ;) I wear one practically every day during the week, BUT that's only because I work from home and the only time I go out in public is to go to the gym & walk the dog. On weekends I ditch the hoodie in favor of the comfy sweater and boots look.

Ah, le hoodie. I only wear them now around the house or as a layering piece for frigid winters. I have 2 that are "summer" hoodies I wear on cool nights. I def opt for an oversized sweater instead. Much cozier too!

I've never been into hoodies, but I'm ALL about the comfy over sized sweaters =P

I AGREE, Tabitha! I wear a hoodie when I go to the gym or if I'm super cold and need a sweater when in bed, but oversized is the way to go! and I love this one on you!

I love oversized sweaters but I love hoodies too! Especially when going to yoga, so that doesn't really count, right?

I've never been a hoodie girl. I had a couple, but they were part of a lounging outfit. Love comfy and soft sweaters! You're too cute Tabitha.
