Like most girls of my age, I can’t get enough of Topshop. Every time I go into my local town centre I pop in to have a browse and always end up buying (or trying on) something. About two months ago I spotted this hoodie in many colours and had to buy it – I blame the fact I was out in just a cardigan & it was freezing, but I really liked it too!
The jacket has become very popular this year as the ‘casual’ look is in! Think vans, zip-up hoodies, jeans and a band tee then you’re sorted for now! The hoodie is very versatile, it goes with most outfits as long as you match the colours correctly – obviously no pink with red combinations!
The hoodie is zip up and has a hood (obviously) that has drawstrings around it. I do always wonder why hoodies have drawstrings as I’ve never seen anybody who actually uses them!? I have seen recently that it has become fashion to tie them up and leave the hoodie un-zipped. The zip and drawstring ties are white with the rest of the hoodie being in your chosen colour. There are two pockets which are quite big and I am yet to use them as I find them to be more of a design feature than practical. The material inside is a little fleece like and not incredibly warm because the hoodie is a bit thin, but if you wear a cardigan or long top underneath you will be cosy. Often it will be okay without or just a coat on top. The sleeves are full length and are a little tighter around the wrist than the rest of the arm.
*The hoodie is made from polyester and cotton, washing instructions are on the inside label.
SO WHAT DO I THINK?
The hoodie fits really well and is quite baggy which I like. I brought mine in size 8 (which is my size) and find Topshop to be quite size perfect. The hoodie zips up easily and keeps me warm enough. I love the colours available and you could buy one to go with pretty much every outfit which is nice. I find it to be really versatile with any casual outfit – obviously you wouldn’t wear it on a night out (except for a cover up before you get into your destination).
PRICE, SIZE & CHOICE
This hoodie surprised me with the vast amount of colours available. I brought mine in the Barbie pink shown in the picture above (later buying yellow and dark grey), but it is also available in:
There are probably more but this is what my local Topshop have in stock. The sizes range from 8-18 which I think is quite generous as most shops don’t go to size 6 or 20 which is a shame because they really should.
Price wise, the hoodie is only £22 but if you’re lucky enough to be a student you get 10% off this price (making it £19.80) with a valid NUS card and they often have 20% off events too.
This hoodie is such a good addition to the wardrobe and its quite a staple piece in mine, I wear one colour most days. I have three of the hoodies now and think I’ll probably end up with at least one more before they go out of stock – especially when they go into the sale!
