Girls’ Hoodies for School Wear: Comfortable and Stylish Choices

School can be fun, but it can also be a stressful experience for many teen and tween girls as the challenge of balancing academic success and social acceptance becomes an everyday hurdle. Looking and feeling great is a key priority for many, andgirls' hoodies are a comfortable clothing choice for school that offers freedom of movement as well as a chance to develop a relaxed and fashionable sense of style.

As a parent, choosing the rightgirls' hoodies for school may feel a little overwhelming–which is why we’ve put together some tips for moms looking to make the perfect choice for their daughters.

Why Hoodies a Great Choice for School

Choosing the right hoodie can give your girl a bunch of advantages at school, including:

Continual Comfort

Hoodies are a comfortable wardrobe choice, allowing your daughter to focus on her schoolwork rather than being distracted by her clothes. They also allow her body to move freely, making hoodies great for staying busy and active. They are great for layering over a t-shirt or thinner top for added warmth as needed in the cooler months.

There may also be a connection between body confidence and hoodies, which is why choosing the right fit and style is so important. You want to make sure your daughter feels comfortable and confident rather than tempted to hide in a hoodie that is too large or shapeless.

Practicality and Independence

As well as being comfortable and easy to wear, hoodies are a practical piece of clothing that can be easily added or removed to an outfit without fuss. Having a hoodie around ensures that she always has something to throw on at a moment's notice and that she is ready for anything life has to throw at her.

Kind to Your Wallet

As with any item of clothing, hoodies come at a range of price points. As your tween morphs into a teen, brands will become more important, too. With all these changes happening at lightning speed, you want to get the most for your money without worrying that your daughter is lacking in essential schoolwear items.

How to Pick the Perfect Hoodies for School

So, how do you make sure that you invest in the best hoodies for your daughter and help enhance her school experience as much as possible? Some of the main factors to consider include:


Color is one of the most important considerations when purchasing any item of clothing. However, when it comes to school, there may be rules and regulations about what can and cannot be worn. For example, some schools may prohibit very bright, loud colors, while others will not allow bold patterns, logos, or slogans.

Make sure you check if there is a dress code at your daughter’s school and make your purchases accordingly. Do your homework and choose the right item to comply with any rules.

Size and Shape

You also need to ensure that you buy pieces that are a good fit for your daughter. Don’t forget to consider other items of clothing (such as coats and jackets) that your child may wear with the hoodie. Opt for a size that has room to grow, and choose a hoodie specifically designed for girls. These are usually shaped slightly differently to suit the female body and can be more flattering than a bulky boys’ hoodie.

Ways of Wearing

There are two main types of girls' hoodies: those that can be pulled over the head and those that zip up at the front. The best option will ultimately depend on your daughter's preferences. If she struggles with zippers, a pullover option such as the Downtown Hoodie from Yellowbetty can be a great solution. An image-conscious tween may want a zip-up so putting it on won’t wreck her hair. 

In Conclusion

Choosing the right hoodie for school will equip your daughter with a practical wardrobe staple that can be added to almost any outfit and is sure to become an essential part of her school life for many years to come.
