We love hoodies also known as hooded tops and we love that the hoodie element has found its way into a variety of tops and sweaters this season. You may be looking for specific styles of hoodies such as hooded cardigans or hooded sweaters, hoodies with different sleeve lengths such as long or ¾ length or even short sleeves, but we suggest having a variety of different style hooded tops that give you a variety of options and distinctive ways to wear them and incorporate them into your wardrobe. One of our most popular designers of hoodies at Vintage Fringe is Splendid. We wanted to highlight a few great hoodie alternatives from Splendid in this article.
Take a look at the Textured Rib Long Sleeve Hoodie by Splendid. This is one of the dressier hoodies we’ve seen as this hoodie is made of a cotton cashmere blend giving it a light weight sweater feel. It is sheer enough that it works perfectly layered over a short sleeve top or tank and we even like to wear it over a long sleeve tee in the winter. With a drawstring tie at the waist and a wide v neck this hoodie really is a perfect piece for that beach vacation where you want something a little warm and love the sheer, light weight look of this hoodie.
Alternatively, the French Terry Hooded Jacket by Splendid is made from their French terry with lycra fabric blend. It feels luxuriously soft and is a great top for layering and active wear. We love wearing it with Splendid’s French Terry with Lycra pants to the gym or yoga studio. With a tie at the waist with belt loops to hold the tie in place you can wear this cardigan loose or fitted depending on your preference. Of course the hood gives it a more casual look, but it also takes a basic top and gives it a modern twist.
To really mix it up with different styles of hoodies consider the Baby Fleece Tie Waist Hoodie also by Splendid, a wonderful example of a simple yet very distinctive style from Splendid. The Baby Fleece Tie Waist Hoodie features an empire waist with a drawstring and short sleeves. It is not every day that you run across a short sleeved hoodie, but we love the look of this Baby Fleece Tie Waist Hoodie. The Baby Fleece fabric is really a good quality sweatshirt fabric and we love the green color and the long tunic length of this hoodie. We wear it over leggings or jeans and love to wear it year round over short or long sleeve tops.
As you can see, hoodies fill a variety of roles in your wardrobe and you can find a number of them available in a variety of styles and designs with different fabrics and possible uses. They are great modern casual pieces for every wardrobe and the hoodies by Splendid mentioned here all incorporate great fabrics that make them comfortable and easy to wear.
