Trend Alert: Welcome to the 'Hood
October 10, 2007
If you've been shopping lately, you may have noticed a soft, net-like piece of fabric hanging off nearly everything you tried on. That net, formally known as a hood, isn't just for velour sweatsuits anymore. Hot designers everywhere are attaching the hood to dresses, jackets—even blazers. The good news for you? These fabric adornments aren't just a great way to turn-up the cool factor on an otherwise stuffy work outfit, they're also pretty handy on those blustery fall days when you're without your Eugenia Kim.
Check out this uber-trendy hooded jacket ($425) available at Bergdorf Goodman from the Olsen twins' new line Elizabeth and James. It pairs perfectly with a black mini-dress for a night out or over a black shift dress for the office:
This Juicy Couture shrug ($148) from Net-a-Porter is a cute, comfortable option for weekend outings…
while this over-sized sweatercoat from Marc Jacobs ($368), available at Bloomingdale's, is great for everyday.
