I found the best The Best Distressed Hoodie this past week while in California. It’s way cheaper than that Givenchy Distressed Hoodie that keeps selling out. I had some time to shop on our trip to Disneyland (besides my new Bing Bong elephant) and I stumbled upon an Alo Yoga store in Santa Monica. I had been eyeing this Distressed Hoodie for months now but we don’t have an Alo Yoga in Canada. Luckily, the store I went to had it in for me to try and I absolutely loved it.
I was really drawn to this color Gravel but I was a bit worried that it would wash me out. All of the colors are great but I would have played it safe with the black had I not tried on the other colors. This Gravel color is perfect combined with the distressing and paired with black leggings. I love that the distressing is so nicely balanced througout the hoodie in all the right spots. It’s so casual and cozy, but kinda sexy and edgy. I also really love the neckline on this hood. I know distressing isn’t for everyone but for those of you that love ripped jeans this is going to be right up your alley.
They also have a few other pieces in the Distressed line. Sweat pants, tank tops, crew necks and tee shirts. I know the Ripped Warrior Leggings are super popular as well.
I picked up this Distressed Tee in black. It was a size down from my usual while the grey one is my TTS
I love the fit of this tee so much. It’s 100% soft cotton (made in the US) and the sleeve length is so great. It’s a little bit of a boxy shape, but narrow and long enough that it’s feminine. I would have preferred staying with my TTS in this but the black was sold out in a large and I prefered the black over the grey.
What do you guys think? do you like the distressed look or are you in the camp of ‘why would I spend money on something already damaged?’
