When the temperature drops, are you prone to wandering around your house with your doona wrapped around your body, trailing behind you on the ground? If that hits too close to home, then it sounds like you need to upgrade to a blanket hoodie, also known as a wearable blanket.
Now that cosy season has officially started, it’s time to swap your denim shorts for track pants and ugg boots. Autumn is that time of the year when you want to make hot chocolate from scratch and sit by the window as you watch the leaves change colour.
While the desire to lay in bed all day is particularly compelling, donning a blanket hoodie is a good way to keep busy while also keeping yourself warm and toasty. Especially when the weather turns dark and rainy.
Below, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite blanket hoodies that’ll keep you snug as a bug (and looking good doing it).
If you think you might’ve seen a blanket hoodie on TV before, this is the one you would’ve seen. First appearing on Shark Tank, THE COMFY made its big debut and quite literally warmed the world’s heart. Made from plush, fluffy sherpa, this wearable blanket comes with a pocket at the front to keep your hands toasty too. It’s also machine washable which is a big win in our books.

The Oodie has skyrocketed to cult status for its fun patterned hoodies that are as colourful as they are warm. There are a million designs to choose from and you can grab anything from ones littered in corgis or a family pack if you want your household to run around in matching wearable blankets.

For all the tall guys who are concerned their wearable blanket might cut off at the hips, this is the one for you. It’s generously oversized so your entire body can feel the heat.

If you ask us, nothing quite says “chilly season” like a black and red check pattern does. On the inside, it’s lined with some soft and fluffy fleece to keep you snug as a bug.
You can buy one from eBay Australia here for $70 (down from $185).
Leopard print is a fashion statement in and of itself, so this hoodie really speaks for itself. You could probably wear it down to the shops without being judged.

If you’re someone who frequently changes their mind, a reversible hoodie is a perfect solution. If you wake up one day and decide you don’t want to wear the leisurely llama design on your hoodie, just give it a switch-up and change it to the sherpa side.

This hoodie’s best feature is the fact that it’s windproof. This means you can wear it outdoors to a sports game or while taking out the rubbish, you’ll still feel snuggly warm. Win.
