If there's one thing apart from hot soups that makes winter tolerable, it's obviously winter wear, more specifically, hoodies. Honestly, we've been waiting to fish out our old hoodies and also load up on a few good quality and stylish ones from homegrown brands. If you're someone who loves wearing graphic hoodies too, or even boyfriend sweatshirts, tis the season to snuggle into these hoodies and stop stealing bae's! 

PS. We're keeping with the times and picking out styles that are slouchy, comfy and edgy. All of these hoodies may not keep you super warm (don't expect polar fleece - thankfully, most parts of India do not have unbearable winters either), so if you need to protect yourself against the cold make sure to layer well underneath before throwing any of these hoodies/sweatshirts on. 

The Mood Hoodie

Exhale Label crafts comfortable clothing that aims to spread mental awareness through its outfits. Our number one pick from their collection of comfort-first clothing is this Mood Hoodie in pastel pink. Why do we love it? Because it's oversized and it'll go well with both denims and shorts - but you won't have to worry about styling if you simply purchase this as a matching sweatsuit set. Plus, we're loving those baggy sleeves, which add a dramatic flair to the hoodie. This hoodie is made of 100% breathable cotton (so even if you're layering you won't feel choked, hot or sweaty) and comes in two other basic colours - powder blue and black. Sizes S to XL available.

We love this two-toned hooded casual sweatshirt from Miss Chase - a global fashion brand that brings to you designs inspired straight from the European runways. The fabric is very soft (cotton), and when layered well, its snug fit will keep you nice and toasty on a cold night. When it comes to value, this option can't be beat too, because apart from being stylish (cool baseball hood look) and keeping you cosy during the winters, this is also a functional option for indoor and outdoor workouts (wear it over a pair of leggings and comfortable sports bra and you won't feel hot and bothered). This hoodie is also currently down from INR 2,149 to under INR 1,00 - that's a 55% discount!

This much-loved homegrown brand makes a whole range of fashionable, modern and comfortable options to choose from that'll help you transition from boardrooms to bars effortlessly. but what most don't know is that The August Co. has super comfy full-sleeved round neck sweatshirts too that can be worn at work and also while you're out with friends or just in the comfort of your home. Since we're in love with all things oversized this season, this warm, oversized quinn maroon pullover is our go-to. Made from a cotton hoodie fabric, you won't have to wear multiple pieces of clothing underneath, in fact, even the waistband and hand bands have a thicker back for added warmth. Reviews state that the exterior feels like the softest sweatshirt while the interior is like a plush blanket (we're paying premium price for it, afterall). Plus, the colour is so royal! You can purchase this hoodie is sizes XS to 3XL or even custom make a size for you August Co.'s website.

This border line classic hoodie from Agil Athletica is not just comfortable but also makes you look smart when you wear it. Clean lines, contrasting solid colours and a cotton polyester means it won't go out of style and when you wear it and won't restrict but move with your body. We're also thankful for the big, easy to use zipper - may seem like something unimportant, but trust us, we've broken many a zipper in a hurry and this one seems like it will pass that test. This particular hoodie comes in cropped, fitted and oversized options too, and in a bunch of different colours. It's equally comfortable to wear for an outdoor workout as it is for a movie night. We do wish it had more inclusive sizing though, especially since this isn't a slouchy fit.

If you're tired of those boring blue or black hoodies, this effortlessly cool-looking red cropped hoodie from ISU (a great zara/h&m copycat brand for half the price) is the pick for you. This option is obviously style over function given that it is cropped but it does manage to keep you warm enough on nippy days. This is thanks to the thick cotton inner lining, hood and long sleeves. Should you want to layer wearing this, we suggest an oversized-tee underneath. It has a relaxed unrestrictive fit, but it does tend to ride up when you lift your hands or try to exercise in it. In that case, wear something high-waisted for pants. Shop for sizes up to 2XL on LBB. This is a pricey hoodie, but in our opinion, this is totally worth every penny, more so if you prefer fashion over function.

If simplicity and affordability are your jam than trying to be one with the trends, buy this no-nonsense hoodie from Dolce Crudo. It's got comfortable pockets to fit your hands into when it gets chilly outside and thick but non-restrictive elasticated bands on the waist and wrists. The hoodie isn't incredibly warm so you can wear it indoors but when it worn outdoors, it will keep you cosy enough without adding any extra weight to your whole look. A neutral black colour and simple stripped pattern also means this style will pretty much go with everything.
