Depending on where you live, the winter season can get pretty rough and aggressive. The temperatures can drop below freezing and the harsh winds seem to blow right through you. Even when you are locked up indoors with the heat on, it can still be chilly enough for you to put on some warm socks before walking around your home comfortably. There is only so much that we can do about the weather, but what we can do is adapt and manage with the factors that are still in our control, like our clothing.
We can dress carefully to make sure that we are staying safe and warm all season long, whether we are heading out for a quick errand, staying home the entire day, or being brave and going out for a jog before work. In these cases, we often see people relying on a heavy zip up hoodie all throughout the season to stay comfortable. It is a great garment to own in cooler climates and a smart purchase for the winter. If you are not already stocked up on high-quality heavyweight hoodies, you might want to consider picking up a few in colors you would wear often, to make sure you are prepared for the autumn or winter weather. At this point, we would even go so far as to say that a heavy zip up hoodie is an essential item for dealing with the winter chill. Just to drive the point home, let’s take a look at a few of the major benefits of wearing your heavyweight hoodie in the cold.
Layer Up & Stay Warm
Let's start off with the main benefit of wearing your heavy zip up hoodie in the winter: the warmth. Heavyweight hoodies are incredibly warm and can help you to retain your body heat as you go out into the chilly environment.
This is because of both the design and fabric used to create them. Hoodies from Just Sweatshirts are made with 100% cotton, which is a great fabric to wear any time of year, but in this case, because of its softness and heat retention. Cotton is super soft by nature of the individual fibers, and it is great at retaining heat, which helps you to stay warmer longer.
The construction of these hoodies also contributes to their practicality as cold weather clothing because they are designed to be worn as layers. Of course this is influenced by the size you order as well, but if you choose a hoodie that is not too fitted, you can take full advantage of it as a layering piece.
Layering your clothing is one of the absolute best ways to stay warm in the winter because it does a better job of trapping in heat, while allowing your body complete natural blood circulation underneath. You can wear any combination of long-sleeved shirts, sweatshirts, or under shirts underneath your hoodie and if it is really cold, you can throw a coat on top of that as well. The hood is the perfect finishing touch to keep you bundled up and comfortable even in the sharpest of winter storms.
Get Cozy at Home
Even if you do not have big plans to go out, or you get to work from home in the winter, you could still enjoy the comfort and warmth that comes with wearing a heavy zip up hoodie. Sometimes after turning up the heat in our apartments or houses, it is still somewhat chilly indoors and all we can do is cozy up as much as possible, which is honestly a great feeling when you are successful.
As chilly as things are outside, you get to sit inside with a warm blanket across your lap as you work or relax. In these situations, whether it is on the weeknights or in the middle of the week, you can enjoy the comfort of a cozy zip up hoodie. Our pure cotton hoodies are super soft naturally and they tend to get even softer over time with each wash, making it more comfortable to wear than many types of pajamas. You can get up for the day, throw on your heavy zip up hoodie and feel ready to take on the day from the comfort of your own home.
Quick, Reliable Clothing
Another major point for heavyweight zip up hoodies is that they are clothes you know you can rely on. With some clothes, you have to be in a certain mood to wear them or else it seems like too much trouble.
These are usually fitted clothes that feel fussy and won't let you move around freely in them. You never have this problem with cotton hoodies. You know that if you are ever leaving the house quickly or you are not in the mood to go anywhere, perhaps you feel sick, you can just put on your hoodie with a T-shirt, sweatpants, and sneakers, and you are ready to go. That pairing is already a classic combination we love to see.Your stretchy sweatpants and cozy hoodie are always right there for you when you need them.
Out of all the clothes you could stock up on for the winter, we have to say, without a shadow of a doubt, that a heavy zip up hoodie is one of the best. It provides you with all the comfort, coziness, and warmth that you could ask for a winter garment, plus a little extra style thrown in there too.
We usually suggest people choose their favorite colors and neutrals when buying sweatpants, sweatshirts, and hoodies because these will get you the most use for sure.
This kind of clothing can be worn outside or around the home, and there are few garments that rival the comfort these clothes have to offer. You can take a look at these styles for yourself and see what we mean. Shop the Just Sweatshirts hoodies and other garments and prepare yourself for a chilly winter season.
Stay warm out there!
