With so many different types of hoodies, it can be hard to even know which style you’re shopping for.

I can make it easier on you by telling about the different hoodie styles and where you can get them.

All you need to know for now is that there are two basic styles of hoodies: pull-over hoodies and zippered hoodies.

Each style of hoodie falls into one of the two categories and you can find some of them in both categories.

Fun fact: A hoodie would be anything that has a hood attached but does not have zipper or buttons.

While the nickname “hoodie” may be the most popular way to refer to this garment, it’s a short name for what is called a “hooded sweatshirt.”

Baja Hoodies

Baja hoodies also called Baja ponchos are hoodies made of a soft cloth. Most often it’s multicolored which makes them quite eye-catching.

Fur Hoodies

Fur hoodies are for the colder winter months. These hoodie styles generally have some sort of fur (faux) around the hood, arms cuffs, or inside.

Sometimes the entire hoodie can be of fur. It depends on your taste and, in some cases, your budget. For example, the parka below.

Pullover Hoodies

One of the more popular hoodie designs is the pullover hoodie. These types of hoodies don’t have zips and are snug and comfy.

They can be a bit thicker than other types of hoodies which mean that they are good for the autumn months.

Polo Hoodies

Polo hoodies are a thing and I love them. Why? 1. I love T-shirts and 2. I love hoodies. And guess what? Polo hoodies combine the best of both!

Slim-Fit Hoodies

Slim-fit or muscle-fit hoodies give off the appearance of a slimmer body even more so if you actually have a slim/fit body.

Zip-up Hoodies

The second main type of hoodie is the zip-up hoodie. And, unlike the pullover, these have zips.

Zips are useful in that you can adjust them to let more air in on warmer days or to keep cold out on colder days.
