Hooded sweatshirts, often referred to as “hoodies” now hold a permanent place in fashion. The hoodie was a piece of clothing that started out primarily as workout wear. Now you can find hoodies made by famous clothing designers and ranging in price as high as the hundreds of dollars for some designs. Why has the hoodie become so popular? Let’s take a look at who wears them the most.

The trend can be traced back to rappers who wore them as a way of looking sinister. Now the trend has taken off and any urban clothing enthusiast would have at least one hoodie in their wardrobe.

Hoodies for women are made to fit a woman’s frame to still accentuate her figure. The urban look of the hoodie compliments both men and women when wearing a cool pair of jeans and some fly kicks.

The hoodie is not limited just to the urban clothing scene. Surfers and skateboarders are big fans of the hoodie as well. It is not uncommon to see both surfers and skateboarders sporting their favorite brand of hoodies on the beach or at the skate park. Popular brands for these hoodies include Axtacy Apparel and Good English Clothing Co.
