Fans and families of volleyball players wear hoodies to the game to show their support and motivate the players to perform their best. Hoodies are useful to players, too, as they keep them warm before the tournament starts during the winter season. After all, hooded sweatshirts were invented to keep people warm during bitter-cold winters. Combining fashion with comfort is the key to standing out in a crowd while remaining in one’s element.
Why are Volleyball Hoodies so popular?
Wearing hoodies to Volleyball matches is not a fad. Hoodies are so popular because of the comfort they provide and the ease with which they can be worn. One can simply pull on a classic pullover hoodie and dash out if they are in a hurry to watch a Volleyball match; it takes mere seconds. Of course, hoodies are special to some people because of the Rocky franchise. Who doesn’t love watching Rocky run in his hoodie as a part of his training regimen?
Besides, hoodies are a great way to express one’s feelings, as the texts or images printed on them speak for themselves. Whether fans want to support their favorite player or gently mock their opponents, hoodies are perfect for their purpose. Nothing beats showing up to a game in matching hoodies with one’s friends and raising the morale of the players and fellow fans.
Designer Vs. Custom-made
If one wishes the world to see them as fashionistas, trendsetters, or glamorous, designer hoodies are a dream come true. If the priority is to show support to the Volleyball players, custom-made hoodies will be a better option, as fans can have the names, faces, or jersey numbers of the players they wish to support printed on the hoodies. Custom-made hoodies open a whole new world of options to buyers, as their imagination is the dominant factor in this case.
On the other hand, designer hoodies represent the creative minds of the designers who work day and night to perfect a hoodie that strikes the right balance between being runway-worthy and comfortable enough for daily use. Some designer hoodies have additional bells and whistles like extra pockets on the sleeves, deeper pockets than the ones in regular hoodies, and sleeker and sophisticated designs that make one look effortlessly stylish. So, buyers have to choose based on the purpose for which the hoodie is being bought and the level of comfort they require.
Types of Hoodies
There are several types of hooded sweatshirts one can choose from. Each one offers a unique attribute, so buyers (fans or players) can purchase one depending on their preferences. The following are some of the popular hoodies for both men and women:
Zip-up Hoodies are one of the most popular types of hoodies as they can be put on quickly. Also, the zips can be adjusted to maneuver the airflow to protect oneself from the cutting wind or welcome a warm breeze depending on the season. Some people prefer zip-ups to pullovers as they do not have to endure the hassle of pulling the hoodie over their head; Volleyball players who wear glasses consider this a godsend.
Pullover Hoodies are classics and are still in vogue. Usually, pullover hoodies come with kangaroo pockets that are beloved by many. Whether one wants to keep their hands warm, store a few candies, or merely want a place to stuff their hands during awkward conversations, kangaroo pockets are perfect. A few hoodies have additional pockets to store various objects like wallets, phones, or keys.
The drawstrings of these hoodies can be adjusted to suit the requirements of the wearers. They can choose to keep the hood’s fabric close to their face to keep the wind out or let it fall loose so that they can enjoy the sensation of the breeze caressing their face.
Athletic hoodies are specifically designed for performing athletic activities like running, jogging, and warm-ups. Some hoodies come with reflective tape both on the front and the back, which is extremely beneficial to the night owls that do not mind going for a run or a jog during unnatural hours. After all, some people’s brains fire up during odd hours and are most productive at those times.
Baja hoodies originally emerged in Mexico, but their popularity has spread due to their colorful nature. They are made of soft materials and are highly comfortable to wear. They also capture the attention of everyone as they come in a number of bright colors with bold designs—Volleyball players who love being the center of attention love wearing these.
Slim-fit hoodies hug one’s skin so well that they create an illusion of a slimmer body than one possesses. They look even more flattering on those Volleyball players or fans who already have slender bodies. These hoodies are the favorites of those who like a snug fit instead of a regular fit.
Fleece hoodies are designed to keep a person warm. While some hoodies are completely lined with fleece on the inside, in others, only the hood or the arm cuffs are lined with fleece. They are soft but are not as durable as the other types of hoodies. A few fleece hoodies are robe-like. If that is something the buyer likes, they may opt for fleece hoodies.
Button-up Hoodies are hybrids between hoodies and cardigans; some are similar to flannel jackets. These hoodies are more fashionable than practical, and some have shallow pockets to keep small things in. Volleyball fans can wear these to matches to show their passion for unique styles. Nothing of value can be kept in these pockets, though. That is why pullover hoodies are still in demand despite the emergence of several different types of hoodies.
Why do People wear Hoodies in summer?
Several people wonder why some people wear hoodies in summer, as the primary function of a hoodie is to provide warmth. So, why wear it in summer when it is already hot? Well, to some, hoodies are comfort clothing. They feel safe, confident, and fuzzy while wearing hoodies. Regardless of the heat, they wear it, and a few even go so far as to attend Volleyball matches wearing it to cheer on their favorite teams.
A few other rare reasons to wear a hoodie are that the person may want to protect their skin from the harmful effects of the sun, they like baggy clothes that do not reveal the shape of their body, or they merely wear it because it looks awesome. Therefore, seeing a person in a hoodie on a hot summer day is not that bizarre. The best thing about a hoodie is that it protects one from sunlight and even rain and snow to a certain extent but can be lowered when it is no longer required.
In short, one does not need to worry about when and which type of hoodie one has to wear. People can pull on the hoodie they feel most comfortable in and go for a walk, have fun with their friends while watching Volleyball in a stadium, or chill out on a couch. Hoodies are suitable for almost all occasions. Also, they can be paired with nearly anything (jeans, leggings, or pants). The important thing is to have enormous fun wearing it.
