Yep, I said Spring fashion in the hood. Nope, it may not be what you think. Although if you are a regular follower, you’ll understand this post isn’t about inner city urban fashion but how it has influenced generic suburban fashion that a wider population wears. It’s my “Ode to the Hoodie – Life in the Suburban Jungle”.
It has even influenced me, a “mature aged” woman living in suburbia. In a subtle way you will see it in todays look.
Spring Fashion in the Hood: There are a number of ways I think this piece pays homage to more urban fashion or inner city life. First and foremost would be the hoodie. The staple attire of so many youth. Typically worn with the hood up by the younger, urban crowd. I’m wearing my hoodie under a vintage Jag denim jacket that was given to me by The Fashion Sister From Another Mother. I’ve even gone denim on denim by wearing this with the basic blue jeans. To complete the urban youth homage I have on my high-heeled, open-toe runners from Wittner. Yes, I love these shoes because they are so comfortable…but hey, they are pretty cool too!
I’ve also used my leopard print Mulberry bag to honour the Urban Jungle!
Suburban Jungle: A few of these items are pieces that you would find in many suburban wardrobes these days. Most people seem to have some version of the hoodie and with wedged runners becoming so trendy right now, I’m seeing them on more and more women even in my conservative part of the country.
What do you think of this look? To cliché? Too young? Or not too bad for spring fashion in the hood? That is if your hood is in the suburban jungle!
