Me, too. Let’s hear something in defense of hoodies...they’re not just for hoods! I’m in my 70’s, white, female and in the winter I live in hoodies. I usually buy them in the men’s department, because they hang much longer than the women’s sizes, all one color. I even have a gray one that is ultra feminine, besequined and beribboned from a high end store and I think it’s quite pretty and I have gone shopping in nice stores wearing it. However, I don’t wear pants showing “butt cleavage” (for which everyone should be much thankful)and in appearance I am as far removed from a “gangsta” as you can get.
Not all hoodies are the same. The bigger the hoods are, the more “gangsta” they tend to look....and the gangstas and wannabes tend to wear them in any kind of weather.
