Hoodies are a valuable item of children's clothing, being jumpers that are versatile in both function and fashion.

Hooded clothes have been popular for centuries, from 12th-century monks and farmworkers to the first hooded-sweatshirt-wearing athletes and labourers of '30s New York. It's believed that hoodies made the leap to street fashion when said athletes started loaning their hoodies to their girlfriends, and the hoodie has remained in popular demand ever since.

Whether you're after something comfortable for the school run, something warm for the gym, or something wind-proof for the beach, hoodies are great for accessorising with school backpacks or with boxing gloves when doing some extracurricular activities.

Hoodies are perfect for the British climate, as they combine comfortable fit with warm fabrics that are easy to layer under or over.  If your child is in need of a high quality hoodie, we've found 15 products for you to choose from, covering both casual and activewear, from a variety of brands. They are all easy to order online and your kids will be warm and stylish in no time.
