When it comes to activewear jackets, hoodies add the benefit of keeping your head and neck warm without subjecting your hair-do to hat head. These days, most sportswear jackets for women are styled with a woman's body in mind. Look for a sleek fitted silhouette that is as flattering on the street as at the gym. A zip closure makes it easy to regulate warmth and side or front pockets often zip for security. You can comfortable wear any one of your sports bras underneath a hoodie.
Hoodies come in all styles and fabrics, from soft velour to high-tech moisture-wicking synthetics mixed with spandex. Hoods will keep you warm on cool days and protect from the sun and wind as well. Not only functional, some brands offer hoodies in fashionable color ways, like fuchsia, magenta, bright jade, tone on tone stripes or playful plaids.
