Editor’s Picks: Hoodie Heaven
We always joke that it’s a gazillion degrees here in Philadelphia. While this is true (I just heard something about 104 degrees tomorrow!), I am always freezing at my desk. Every day, without fail, I bring a hoodie with me to the office—and more often than not, I wear it. I love whoever invented air conditioning and am grateful that we have it at the PM headquarters, but I never know what to expect. This is when layering becomes so important. Instead of shivering in my cubicle complaining about how cold I feel, I can focus on my editorial responsibilities.
Another good reason to start thinking about hoodies is because there’s one month left until September (not including this last week of July, sticklers). High humidity will soon be replaced by crisp autumn air. The fall conjures up images of football, pumpkins, colorful leaves, hot chocolate—all of which remind me of my reliable hoodie.
I know it may be sad to start thinking about the end of summer, but if your customers are anything like me, maybe they’ll still need a hoodie for August. Below are some ideas to get started.
Sweatshirts don’t always have to look traditional. The Fuchsia Pinwheel Tie-Dyed Hoodie from Dyenomite allows you to have some fun with your cold-weather wardrobe. The warm garment features a two-ply hood, drawstrings with metal grommets and a front pouch pocket. The hoodie only is available in level 1 pinwheel style and comes in sizes S to 3XL, along with youth sizes.
