are hoodies good for winter?
when were hoodies invented?
Hooded garments can be traced back to medieval times, even long before that. This comes from the indisputable need of creating a clothing item that offers protection for the head too.
However, the hooded sweatshirts or hoodies that we know today weren’t created until the 1930s when the clothing brand Champion created the first hooded sweatshirt designed to keep New York warehouse workers warm from the cold winter.
This clothing item became popular during the 70s, because of the growing hip-hop culture and famous celebrities, which made this garment, especially popular among young men.

do hoodies keep you warm?
Hoodies are great because they are very flexible to temperatures, depending on which part of the world you live in, you can see people wearing hoodies in the summer, in the winter, and especially in the spring and in the fall.
That is because a hoodie keeps you warm, but not excessively, when it’s fairly warm outside a hoodie keeps you cozy and just at the right temperature, when it’s fairly cold, a hoodie keeps you warm.
So, yes, a hoodie keeps you warm, but some hoodies don’t as much as you would like, cotton hoodies normally keep you warmer and if you are a cold-sensitive person, you can always wear more clothes beneath the hoodie so you don’t feel cold.
are hoodies good for winter?
As we said earlier, it depends on the material of the hoodies. Natural fibers like cotton are great because they keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer while being very comfortable and better for the environment.
But it also depends on the place you live in, humidity might play a big role, if you live in a very humid place and it’s cold outside, you can wear your entire closet because you will still be cold. If the place you are living has very cold winters, a hoodie might not be enough, but it will definitively help, so just wear a jacket on top of your hoodie if you think a hoodie is not enough.
In conclusion, a hoodie is a great choice for the winter, it is very comfortable, and if you need more protection from the cold you can always wear more clothes beneath the hoodie or just wear a jacket on top, or both if you live in Siberia.
is it ok to wear a hoodie in summer?
Hoodies, especially if they are made from natural fibers, can keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer, however, wearing one in the summer is not advised depending on the temperature and climate present.
If the place you’re in has cooler, cloudier, rainier summers, you can go on and wear a hoodie without any problem. Even in a sunny day if the temperature is modest there’s not problem with wearing a hoodie, especially if it’s white (As it reflects all rays coming from the sun), if you feel better wearing one.
However, wearing excessive clothing when temperatures are high can lead to serious problems like dehydratation, heat strokes and death, so we advise you to dress apropiate to the weather, which means that if you live in the UK you should be fine wearing a hoodie in the „hottest” days of the year.
