Is it just me or did everyone have a favorite hoodie in high school? I remember mine, it was bright blue from Abercrombie & Fitch and it had the traditional logo in a deeper navy blue. I loved that hoodie, I used to spray it in my favorite perfume when I’d get ready for the first football game of the season. I often think about how the younger Jackie used to dress and I burst out laughing. Today, I would NEVER douse an article of clothing in perfume or wear a tattoo choker necklace—what was I thinking?! While I’ve since retired my Abercrombie & Fitch hoodie, that doesn’t mean I don’t have a selection in my fall wardrobe. Hoodies are like comfort food, they make you feel good and perhaps sometimes they look too casual, there are ways you can make them appropriate. This black and white chevron hoodie from J. Jill is extremely thick and cozy, and it’s definitely the most sophisticated hoodie I’ve ever owned. I mean it’s probably not something 15 year old Jackie would wear, but perfect for the here and now. I’m pretty sure this is going to become my favorite adult life hoodie.
