I thoroughly enjoy loungewear and if lounging was a competitive sport, my official uniform would consist of sweatshirts & hoodies (bottoms optional)! The soft and durable fall fashion essential also reps as streetwear or luxury item. I have over 40 sweatshirts & hoodies from a variety of brands. This is just a glimpse of my favorite super-soft sweatshirt and hoodie collection from Black-owned businesses.
G0ddess Hru hoodie dress (WineRed), $50.00 - Pharaonic Brands Design
What is not to love about this dress? It's a cotton/spandex blend for durability, long-lasting wear, and stretch complete with hood, front pocket, and gold foil design. Perfect with heels or sneakers. I choose to go barefoot.
My Wakanda Forever hoodie and sweatshirt are in heavy rotation. I break these out as soon as the temperature hits 55 degrees. I always pair them with tights and leggings. I wish I could buy more but the site, Africons Shop, is no longer available. 😞
Abstract Jesus, $60.00 - WRLDINVSN
This light-weight fleece hoodie from WRLDINVSN is comfy without feeling bulky. The screen-print of Jesus is part of the fabric compared to heat pressed graphics that sit on top of fabric. Your Jesus will not crack, fade, or peel. I also love the front pocket for lip gloss or keys and the logo labeling on the wrist.
Matic French Terry Sweatshirt, $ 119.00 and matching Sweatpants, $109.00 - HSTRY
I am a huge Nas fan! I have his entire hip-hop collection and I have seen him in concert a handful of times, o it's only right I rock a few pieces from his HSTRY clothing line. This 100% cotton French Terry sweatshirt with matching sweatpants are available in black and orange. The sweatshirt features the brand name "HSTRY" in an appliqué across the back, stitched in contrasting reversed French Terry fabric. The sweatshirt has the HSTRY signature Queens Bridge crest embroidered on the front's left. This top and bottom are true to size and I am wearing a medium.
The extra soft fabric is perfect to lounge in but versatile enough to run around the city in. The HSTRY's signature bridge crest is also embellished on the left leg, coupled with a waistband drawstring and deep side pockets.
Melanin Alchemist Hoodie, $40.00 - Universal Sankofa
This hoodie celebrates transforming melanin into magic as an alchemist would transform matter into gold. I love the gold foil details: Melanin Alchemist wording on the front, the molecular formula for melanin C18H10N2O4 between the shoulders, and the Universal Sankofa symbol are on the sleeve. This top has an athletic fit and made of a cotton/polyester blend so it's slightly heavier, making it perfect to wear in cooler temperatures or for an evening out.
There's no better feeling than relaxing in your favorite sweatshirt. If you are like me, you're probably wearing one right now. As a valuable part of your autumn/winter wardrobe, hoodies keep you warm and provide layers of protection from inclement weather. If you need to stock up, visit any of the retailers mentioned above and tell them Minority Report featuring Black-Owned Businesses sent you.
