Before I moved to New York, I typically avoided buying hooded jackets. I thought hoods look fussy — never mind that they don’t really serve a practical purpose.
Boy, was I wrong! You don’t really appreciate your hooded jacket until you get caught in a snow storm while walking to work (and you spent an hour beautifying your hair that morning).
Prior to transplanting to the city, I only had one hooded coat that didn’t match with very many of my outfits. So I swung by Uniqlo this past weekend and got myself a more versatile black puffer coat.
Now I’m totally hooked on the hood and I already got my sight on getting a red one next (my favorite color).
