Why you should wear a Baja hoodie

Baja hoodies have been around for a long time, they are unique for their vintage look and their relaxed atmosphere created by their laid back ambience. There is something unique about this “hippie hoodie” that most other clothes don’t have. Because of it’s rarity and unusual  aspects the baja hoodie has started to creep back into the wardrobes of today’s youth. This versatile hoodie has many functions in everyday wear and as a new look at low key parties.

The general place to find Baja hoodies are similar places to beaches and Barbecue parties, places that are chilled out. Another great reason to wear a Baja hoodie is the surf style it creates. This hoodie is particularly popular among surfers and skaters alike and has always been a part of their community. The Baja hoodie is so versitile that there has always been a place for it in the fashion world especially now due to the recent vintage/ surfer craze. So to re-cap on the reason to get a Baja hoodie – relaxed,vintage, surfer style – perfect in many different social situations & always seems to have a spot light on it. I’m sure there are more reasons but this is enough for me for the time being!

Baja hoodie in fashion

Baja hoodies are something unusual, worn by the greatest and fashion legends. Throughout it’s time  the Baja hoodie has developed a status in our society that seems to be never ending. First the hippies of the 70’s wore Baja hoodies. The Baja hoodie became an every day type of hippie hoodie, it’s diversability (can be died easily) strong quality material is what they loved about it. This young and free spirit image that the hippie community created around the Baja hoodie has filtered down to the  youth of today.

Modern society has once again taken the Baja hoodie and made it into a unique fashion item giving it a new lease of light. Baja hoodies tend to come in and out of fashion like T-shirts and shorts in summer. The great thing about Baja hoodies is that they are very versatile, they can be worn almost anywhere. Because of their materials ability to be died in so many different colours you will nearly always be able to find the colour you want.

Finding a Baja hoodie is fairly easy to find online  as there are quiet a few online stores that sell them, one being the Baja Hoodie section at the Lonely Sherpa. Thats just one in the U.K. ( a lot of the american stores don’t ship to Ireland & if they do the shipping cost are enormous you will also have to pay tax). However find one in a shop on the street could be a different story altogether, Baja hoodies are not branded by anyone in particular so to find a Baja hoodie in a shop would be highly unlikely especially a shop like Vermoda or  Awear. I don’t think you’ll find them easier than online and if you do it will probably be double the price.

But once you get your new Baja hoodie you’ll be able to show it off at barbecues, house parties at the beach and even when lazing about on the couch. It’s perfect for any situation and I think that is one of the reasons that is has become so popular and has been always been apart of society. It’s a must have that will never go out of fashion

Baja hoodies and the 70’s

Baja hoodies were an icon of the 70’s hippie colonies on the west coast of America, to be precise mainly California. California is situated right next to the Mexican border which made it particularly easy for the baja hoodie to find it’s way into this explosive community of hippies.

Baja hoodies were well suited to the hippies as they were handmade and organic a lot of the time and the hippies loved this side to the hoodie. It wasn’t long before nearly every hippie in town was wearing a baja hoodie. The baja hoodies bright colours and alternative style struck gold with the hippies and finally found it’s home. It wasn’t long though before the hippie colonies started to die of in the late 70’s and 80’s and with it the era of the baja hoodie too.
