Thanks To Vetements, You Can’t Not Have A Pullover Hoodie

No longer just a thing to wear in the cold.
|

When I was a student, pullover hoodies were kind of the shit. Not only did they drastically improve how a uniform looked (FYI: Students in Singapore wear uniforms until the tertiary level), they were essential in the exam season survival pack, right alongside highlighter pens, Post-Its and expressos. Cushy and fuss-free, pullover hoodies shielded our caffeine-filled bodies from the air conditioning in libraries, doubled as makeshift pillows during naps and covered our faces from the world while we snoozed in between books.

The point is, the pullover hoodie wasn’t really a “fashion” thing. It was more of a necessity. When it was cold, when you needed to get comfortable in the cold, or when you cannot be assed to think about what to wear.

Then, Vetements and its ironic “Hoodie” hoodies entered the picture. The pullover hoodie’s rep began to change. Suddenly, it made sense to wear pullover hoodies with jeans, or flare pants, or the season’s slip dress. Even better if said pullover hoodie was a little devil-may-care-ish, like a varsity sweatshirt, that old Nike hoodie you’ve had for years or merch from your favourite team. If you like it a little minimal, why not this, this or this? Remember to get them super oversized so you can do the whole exaggerated sleeve length thing.

In a sense, the pullover hoodie isn’t just an afterthought anymore, or something you throw on and remove when it gets warmer. It’s now a thing on its own, an accessory when you feel like it, a necessity when the situation calls for it. What do you think of the hoodie as a “fashion” thing? You for it or nah?
