If your TikTok For You page looks anything like mine, you’ve probably heard the word “hoodie” way too many times in the past few weeks. Earlier in October, creator Julia Huynh shared a video defining exactly what makes a hoodie “hoodie” — aka a comfortable, oversize hoodie that’s also stylish — garnering over 10 million views and thousands of comments with recommendations for the perfect hoodie that’s both cool and cozy.
After much demand, Huynh, explained her essential criteria for “hoodies that hoodie.” According to the TikToker, that includes the following: a drop shoulder or raglan sleeve; a wide, boxy fit; 100 percent cotton material; cuffs that aren’t too tight; a huge hood; a large neck opening that doesn’t swipe your makeup; and no hoodie strings. The “hoodiest of hoodies” is one that has all of these qualities, and strikes the right balance between being comfy enough to lounge in at home and looking stylish while out and about. On the flip side, a hoodie that isn’t “hoodieing” has more of a tighter fit, with less room in the sleeves and neck.
Since Huynh’s videos have gone viral, she’s divulged her favorites and influenced fellow TikTokers to share their treasured hoodies that meet her requirements. At the end of the day, the best loungewear is dependent on your own lifestyle and preferences. But if you, too, are now on the hunt for the “hoodiest hoodie” according to TikTok, we scoured user recommendations for the coziest, oversize hooded sweatshirts on the market. From affordable, under-$30 options to more luxe, designer items, check out the best of TikTok’s hoodie picks ahead.
