Adding a Black Hooded Windbreaker to Your Wardrobe
- by Dean Braiden
A windbreaker jacket is a great fall and spring piece that's ideal for bringing a little extra warmth, when it isn't cold enough for a full-on jacket - but how do you make sure that you get a good windbreaker, and then how do you work it into your existing style effectively? Don't worry, as the D-ROCK team will help you answer both of those questions now!
When to wear a windbreaker or jacket
The windbreaker is a great piece of outerwear for fall and spring, for when you want to stay warm, but it isn't cold enough for a jacket. A windbreaker is like a thin coat that you can wear over most of your outfit without looking too bulky or out of place. It's also lighter than most winter jackets, so you won't get overheated if it gets warmer later in the day. D-ROCK is a great brand when it comes to finding a windbreaker jacket; the price is affordable, the style on point and the material is always high-end.
If you don't want to spend money unnecessarily on new clothes this spring, consider adding a black hooded windbreaker to your wardrobe as an alternative option for lightweight outerwear during the colder months.
What to wear with a grey or black hooded windbreaker
Look for hooded windbreakers that are made from quality materials and are water repellent
When you are looking for a hooded windbreaker, it is important to consider the quality of the materials that it is made from. You want to make sure that the fabric is sturdy and durable so look for hooded windbreakers that are made from quality materials and are water repellent - this will help keep you dry in rain or snow, but also help keep you warm during those times when there isn't any precipitation in the air.
You should also wear your hooded windbreaker with other garments that will keep you protected from the elements and make your look complete, and shop from a quality brand with a stylish range of items. As a D ROCK customer you'll have the choice between the 'Chance' windbreaker in black or grey, and the 'Cain' windbreaker that combines flat black with a sleek grey check pattern. Both items are lightweight, so no matter what's on your to-do list or what the weather's doing, they won't make you feel bogged down.
If your chosen jacket has a hood, look at how well it fits over your head and if it's too large or small on you personally. You should always be able to comfortably wear and see past any piece of clothing with no restrictions, because limitations like this can make wearing such an item uncomfortable and less enjoyable overall - so always check and make sure you're getting a good fit for you.
A hooded windbreaker brings extra warmth and keeps you protected from the elements.
Every little helps however, so if you’re going to be outside for a long time, consider adding a scarf or hat to your windbreaker look. No matter how great it is at keeping out the wind, it won’t be able to keep your face warm if you don’t have anything else on.
If you aren’t wearing gloves with your hooded windbreaker, consider grabbing some before heading outdoors in the winter months. Gloves will help protect your hands from getting too cold when they are exposed to the elements for long periods of time; and keeping the extremities warm like this is an effective way of staving off lower temperatures and the kinds of weather that we've spoken about already.
A windbreaker is the perfect transitional piece, allowing you to stay warm in cooler temperatures without having to layer up too much. It looks good with jeans and sneakers as we've mentioned before but don't feel you have to be limited to only those options. In fact, there are many other options (even in D-ROCK's own online shop) that would look great when paired with a windbreaker - our Paxton or Royce tracksuits for example.
