A hoodie is a variation of a sweatshirt with fewer additions, hence also referred to as a hooded sweatshirt. It has a hood, as mentioned earlier, with two cords or laces peeping out to tighten the hood. Like sweatshirts, hoodies are made using similar fabrics. Hoodies are comfortable, soft, and provide warmth along with coziness. The hoodie can simply be a pullover similar to a sweatshirt, but it has buttons, hooks, or zippers to open it from the front. Another common design is the kangaroo pockets at the front of the hoodie, which are not found in sweatshirts. While both sweatshirts and hoodies are perfect for cold days with heavy fabrics, the hood offers extra protection to keep your ears and head warm.
