Young girls can be picky about their clothing. If it doesn’t look the way they want and feel comfortable, it simply won’t get worn. So, when buying girls’ hoodies, you will want to look at the design as well as the material.

Hoodies typically have drawstring hoods and also sometimes sport kangaroo pockets. They tend to look more casual than regular crewneck sweatshirts, but they can be dressed up, dressed down and slept in.

Thicker hoodie materials like fleece provide more warmth in colder temperatures, while lightweight materials are better suited for when it is warmer out. Roomier hoodies can be layered under jackets and coats, or you can wear camisoles, tees and turtlenecks underneath.

Some hoodies are cropped, so they hit at the stomach (above the belly button) rather than the waist or hips. These are a bit trendier and look especially good with long shirts underneath and/or with leggings.

There are also tunic hoodies and sweatshirts, which also look good with form-fitting pants and leggings. Some hoodies can also be tucked into jeans. These days, pretty much anything goes — matching sweatpants, yoga pants or jean skirts. Let her wear her hoodie however she likes!

Buying Advice

  • Feel free to buy up one size, since kids wear oversized hoodies all the time. This way, it can last two seasons (or more, if you’re lucky).
  • Most hoodies are machine washable, but read the label first. Some have embroidery or other embellishments that make them solely hand-washable instead.
  • If you find a hoodie that your girl really loves, buy it in several colors or patterns.
  • The best hoodies get softer over time, so if it feels a little stiff at first, don’t worry.
