Well, not exactly, it's not even autumn yet, but still, I'm wearing a hoodie right now, which means it's starting to get cold.So. You know what happens when the new collections come out: you just feel the need to buy booties and leggings and sweaters. Even tough you have plenty of them. And believe me, I most certainly don't own plenty of sweaters: I have minidresses, heel shoes, corsets, but not warm clothing.
I have a problem with low temperatures, which I guess many alternatives can share: I never know what to wear when it's cold outside. I don't know why alternatives are supposed to, like, not feel the temperature outside, to wear knee-high leather boots in the summer and ripped tights in the winter, but I can tell you I'm absolutely unable to do either of those things: I wear my New Rocks in the winter and my fishnets in the summer.
My problem is that I can't seem to find nice winter clothes. Shops just don't have anything that might keep you cozy. You can find longsleeves, blouses or maybe cardigans, but I want fucking HOODIES and SWEATERS.
Now, I get that it's not easy to create unique sweaters since, well, you can't print anything on them, or insert lace or fishnet parts 'cause that would let the cold sink in. But there's something they can do to liven a plain black sweater up a little bit: you can add chains, studs, crosses, patches, whatever. There are people who diy clothes but I'm not one of them, I don't have the creativity it takes; so it would be nice for me to find a nice sweater in a gothic shop for once.
And hoodies... I have to say I'm not a fan of hoodies, but the truth is I can't get through the winter without one. But all I seem to be able to find is skull prints or ribcage prints or stuff that involves bones in some way, and bones, as a trend, have never appealed to me.
I've found a few nice ones, though:
I would still feel weird wearing them because hoodies have always felt too casual to me, but these ones are kind of cute, especially the second one.
Still, hoodie+pants feels so mallgoth and babybat to me... T_T I mean, it's something you usually see on teens, isn't it? I don't know, I'm not a fan of casual.
Do you ever wear hoodies? If so, do you know some good online shops that sell nice ones, and sweaters? I don't want to find myself with just a few sweaters and my Nerv hoodie when the temperature is below 0°C: not again XD!
