An article in HTcafe (December 3, 2019), a supplement with Hindustan Times, talks about Bollywood actors’ preference for hoodies. It is not just for the celebrities; hoodies are a rage everywhere in India. They are stylish, comfy and yes, trendy as well.
When solid-coloured and simple hoodies are so popular, you can imagine how impressive could be customised printed hoodies. They suit different occasions, and best of all, your audience too would love to wear a great-looking hoodie.
Let us get to know the dear hoodie!
Many mistakes a sweatshirt for a hoodie. A sweatshirt is mostly made of cotton and mainly worn while exercising, but it has become ordinary clothing of late. Hoodies are made of cotton or any other fabric, and the significant difference is they have a hood.
A sweatshirt with a hood is a hoodie. It is a misconception that hoodies are modern garments because it is said that the priests of medieval Europe wore hoodie-like garments. Later, it became fashionable, especially with youth, as hip hop culture became popular in the 70s.
Today, hoodies are styled in such myriad and innovative ways that they have accepted both as casual and formal wear. Some credit should go to Mark Zuckerberg as well for making hoodies cooler!
Though a stylish garment, a hoodie is also functional. The fitted waistband and cuffs help trap heat and are comfortable clothing to wear during winters. The hood helps as well! The pockets are typically in the front and can be used to keep small belongings or place your hands to protect yourself from cold.
Customised hoodies are a rage.
If you are a business trying to target young customers, then instead of basic t-shirts, get printed customised hoodies for promotional campaigns, and you have a winner. The hoodies have enough space to write your text in innovative ways and would be worn regularly furthering your reach.
You can either choose to flaunt your text and design by printing on the entire chest area or back or keep it subtle by placing on sleeves, cuffs or pockets.
Whatever the design might be, be assured that your hoodies will be loved and cherished for a long time. Thus, there is nothing like a well-designed and customised hoodie to woo your customers. By the way, it is not just the young and restless who will love the hoodie promotional outfits, but even the elder ones.
The popular hoodie colours in India:
Though you may have spotted more men wearing hoodies in India, they are as popular with women as well. When it comes to colours, you will find hoodies in all the colours, from solids to mixed colours. Though shades such as pink and purple are popular with women, men too aren’t afraid to wear colours when it comes to hoodies.
Here are the four most popular colours for customised hoodies:
When it doubt, wear black. That is perhaps the reason the colour is so popular. Black is also elegant, formal and fun, all at the same time. For adventure enthusiasts, a black hoodie is an ultimate garment, as it facilitates your interest and never comes in your way by displaying stains or dust. You can pair it up with anything, jeans, trousers or track pants.
When paired up with a suitable jacket, black coloured hoodies can also be formal wear. A tip is to make it an all-black ensemble and step out in style as it is not only trendy but also apt as perfect winter wear.
A calm colour, grey is as cool as it can get. It can be paired with almost all colours, and that is why it is one of the top-selling colours for customised hoodies in India.
Be it, lighter or darker shades of grey, the hoodie could be your casual or formal outfit as you would want it to be. Wear your grey hoodie with your blue jeans, and you are ready to rock your day.
Pair it up with a stylish jacket, and you could use your customised hoodie to better use. It is because of the flexibility it offers that grey hoodies are selling like hot cakes in India.
Royal in look and elegance, a navy blue customised hoodie is a must in your wardrobe. Today, the colour is such a rage that navy blue is the new black! It is also a soft shade that you can pair it up with myriad colours such as white, blue, cream, beige, peach, grey and more. Navy blue hoodies are also apt for all occasions. Wear it when you are out with friends, or on your road trip. You can also make it your companion when trekking or on a pleasure trip. It will never disappoint you, and yes, it looks stunning in selfies as well!
Here is a tip. Wear your navy blue hoodie with a denim jacket and blue or black jeans. The denim and your hoodie may be blue variants, but the textural difference will lend a stylish appeal to your look.
If you can’t wear red, then wear maroon. It is not as bright as red but is as attractive and appealing. Those who hesitate to wear red, but need an attractive colour for casual or formal outings can try maroon.
It is not just a great colour for women, but men too are wearing it with utmost confidence. No wonder, maroon hoodies are so popular. The colour also looks great on all skin tones, particularly the common Indian skin tones.
You can pair it up with white, black, blue or grey pants. Make it an all-maroon outfit and pair up with a military jacket, and you are ready to attract admiring looks from all around.
Denim or beige jackets also go well with maroon. And for shoes? The sky’s the limit. You can wear white or black leather shoes or sneakers to complete the look. Snow boots also look stylish with maroon hoodies. If you are a Ranveer Singh fan, try maroon boots to go with it!
A tip – wear your navy blue jeans with the maroon hoodie and layer with a brown or grey jacket, and you can breeze past your meetings with utmost comfort and style.
Customised printed hoodies are the perfect outfits for those who prefer comfort along with style. The top-selling colours in India right now are the ones that look cool in everyone. With hoodies, every colour looks attractive, so if you wish to try the red or purple one, go ahead with confidence. After all, the hoodie itself is a confident outfit!
