“ Casual wear. „
This hoodies lovely; i can't reccomend it enough!
I got mine last year from Amazon UK, as it was october time and i'd decided that i wanted some warmer clothes. This was one of the most worn items in my watdrobe for 3 months or so after i bought it, it's amazingly versatile and comfy, and doesn't look ridiculously slouchy. It's ideal worn with jeans or shorts, good for lazy days, jogging/running and also is thick enough to be worn as a jacket/coat over the top of other clothing.
The hoodie is blue. It's heavyweight, long sleeved and in the style of a thick (but not too thick) sweatshirt, with a hood and a print of the cookie monster's eyes and open grin. It's really cute and would definetly look good on men or women; i'm a girl (obviously!) and have had several compliments that it's "really cute" and "where did i get it from?" both from girls and guys.
I'm not sure why but i expected the inside to be fleecey, which it isn't, but it's still comfy. The kangaroo pocket has an opening at either side and can hold quite a bit, but i don't think it's very flattering when it has objects in so i don't use it, however i've had my ipod in it a few times and it kept it nice and safe while i was jogging.
A downside to this is when worn jogging/running, sweat patches are visible under the arms; a total nightmare. I only wear this for short 30min runs now as any longer and it gets wet through lol. I know that's too much information, but i don't think this is the ideal jumper to be worn for exercise unless you're not bothered about visible sweat patches.
I think it is mainly a fashion statement top meant for casual wear, and i wear mine with jeans to uni sometimes on lazy days when i'm too tired to wear my usual casual blazer or pretty tops.
I bought the top for £24.99 and i think it was worth it; i've had loads of wear out of it and it's still in great condition. It washes and dries well and hasn't shrunk/bobbled/faded. I don't use the hood but as it has a drawstring it's handy for keeping my neck warm!
The hoodie is available in XXS, XS, M and L. When i purchased mine only M and XS were available so i got the M for an oversized look. I'm slim and it honestly wasn't as oversized as i imagined; it shows off my shape and doesn't hang around my body, which i suppose is good in a way however i did buy it for the purpose of it been big and baggy, so i'd reccomend if you want a baggy one to get an L if available.
Overall it's good quality, comfy and i'd reccomend it to anyone who likes slogan/fashion statement hoodies :)
My sister bought this for me, after we watching some vintage episodes together to celebrate the anniversary this year! It was a nice surprise, and first impressions were good. It is soft, a nice colour, and looks to be very good quality. The face is applied well, too, which is a usual problem area for hoodies!
I wasn't as impressed when I put it on, as it is quite thin material and so not as warm as I expected, and it isn't very flattering, but that is due to it being unisex, and therefore not being as 'fitted' as usual hoodies are. That said, it is comfortable, and is perfect for casual outfits!
I was worried about washing it, but it washed well, with the fabric only becoming slightly bobbly and drying really well. It looks just as good as new!
My sister has borrowed this from me now, as its much more her style then mine, and wears it alot. So far, its stayed in good condition, and the colour is just as vivid as ever.
It's an excellent buy, as it lasts much longer then most novelty hoodies and its so comfortable, too!
