Let's get into detail for each of these new and trendy hoodie styles here at Brooklyn Cloth.
Let's start with one of our favorite color-block hoodies. Now, you may be thinking what is “color block” and how is this style designed? Color-block designs are simply putting two or three completely different colors together in one ensemble to make a bold statement through clothing. Who likes to be plain and boring?! We know we don't here at Brooklyn Cloth.
If we ever have an outfit that is looking too basic we just simply throw on a comfy color block Brooklyn Cloth Hoodie to spice it up and add some color. Not only do we look good in this style, but we also feel extremely warm and cozy while wearing it.
The History of the Color Block Hoodie
We have been seeing a lot of color block styles from various brands everywhere recently. Whether it be on tees, joggers, sweaters, or our favorite here at Brooklyn Cloth, hoodies.
Now, as much as we would love to have taken credit for the color block trend we can't. Color block designs have been around since the 1940s. According to Ragstock, color blocking was first introduced into the fashion world in 1946, and where do you ask? At a Yves Saint Laurent fashion show.
The inspiration for color blocking in fashion came from the famous paintings of Dutch painter, Piet Mondrian.
His paintings showcased contrasting colors of squares of blue, red, and yellow. On top of that, he would add bold lines throughout his work. Yves Saint Laurent did exactly that to this dress; it is as if they went copy and paste.
What's even funnier is that people were not ready for this fashion statement. They did not look at it as an actual wearable piece. It wasn't until years passed that it became a popular fashion trend.
How to Style Color Block
I'm going to give you some tips and tricks on how to style color block and look absolutely adorable and stylish while doing so.
We don't want you going outside looking like a walking color wheel; however, we do want you to use one as inspiration. We first want you to get a color wheel and simply just look at it, while looking, you see all of these beautiful colors.
The colors on a color wheel aren’t in just any random order. The ones that are next to each other tend to pair perfectly.
For example, a shade of pink would look absolutely gorgeous with an orange shade. The easiest and safest way to color block is to wear neutral colors so that they do not clash. Another tip to remember, is to take your skin complexion and hair color into account when color blocking. You want to make sure that you choose colors that compliment your features.
Remember to go minimal on the accessories as well. We don't want too much going on in the outfit where it just ends up looking overwhelming.
Last but not least, do not be afraid to try new things. This color blocking is back for a reason and it's popping!

Another trend that is extremely popular is embroidery. Embroidery is defined as “the craft of decorating fabric or other materials using a needle to apply thread or yarn.”
Decorative accents like pearls, beads, quills, sequins, or fine wire can also be used to elevate the appearance of a standard textile when it comes to this artistic art form.
Often, multiple colors of yarn or differing textures are paired together to create a stylish pattern within the material. The word “embroidery” comes from the French word “broderie,” which means “embellishment.” Embroidery has roots going back all the way to ancient times.
While embroidery is practiced across the world, its origin stems from China and the Near East. Early embroidery can actually be traced back to 30,000 B.C. Archeological finds from this time period reveal fossilized remains of heavily hand-stitched and decorated clothing.
Embroidered patterns can definitely make you stand out from the crowd. You can style a dope embroidered hoodie with a pair of trendy joggers and cool kicks for a snazzy weekend ensemble.
Throw it on with your comfiest sweatpants for any casual off-duty occasions. For school days, simply throw on a classic pair of black jeans or light mom jeans to complete a presentable look in seconds.

Remember back in the old days when we would go to summer camp and create tie dye everything with our friends. Whether it be a tie dye tee shirt or even a scrunchie. It was the most fun activity to do in the summertime. Creating your own designs and waiting to see your final product was always so exciting and made us channel our inner creativity.
Well, you don't need to go to camp just to have tie-dye clothing pieces. The tie-dye trend is still here.
Tie-dye is a term used to describe a number of resist dyeing techniques and the resulting dyed products of these processes. The process of tie-dye typically consists of choosing your favorite piece that is a bit too plain and adding a bunch of different colors to it to make it extremely colorful.
Where did it all begin?
The first thing that comes to mind is the ‘70s. We often saw tie-dye in the era of hippies and flower children. We also often saw tie-dye pieces being worn by the cast of That ‘70s Show.
According to Google, tie-dye has become part of American culture in the 1920s but did not become popular until the ‘60s. It still has roots going back to the 6th century in Japan and China.
Individuals used natural dyes from berries, leaves, roots, and flowers to color clothing. These natural items were boiled, and the fabrics then soaked in the hot, dyed water to take on a new color.
Talk about DIY!
The first way to style tie dye pieces is obviously by matching sets! If you aren’t the biggest fan of matching sets, that’s not a problem! A tie dye piece of clothing like a T-shirt or a hoodie can be easily paired with some denim as well.
Don't be afraid to switch things up and have fun! Here at Brooklyn Cloth we offer some goodies that you absolutely need in your closet.

Tie-dyeing may most commonly be associated with the hippie era, but its roots run much deeper. From ancient cultures to today’s arts and crafts projects, this process has truly withstood the test of time.
Marble has been used for thousands of years and will never go out of style. Recently, we have witnessed a boom of marble utilization in interior design that has gone far beyond countertops and bathrooms.
Designers all around the world have been inspired to create innovative and unusual marble design objects. More than that, marble has become a fashion trend, and marble texture has become a print pattern.
Around 2013, marble texture landed the fashion world, and since then it has become very popular. Marble texture started being applied everywhere: marble print on metal, leather, paper, fabric, vinyl etc.
The trend has passed from industry to industry: from fashion, to interior decoration, home appliances, dinnerware, household linen, sport wear, consumer electronics accessories, packaging, and more.
Where did it all even come from? We got our first glimpse of marble in the fashion world in 2008 at the Jill Sanders fashion show, but it wasn't until 2013 when the design blew up and it went everywhere! Since then, marble has been incorporated into many clothing designs.
Here are a few ways to style marble. You can wear it with your favorite yoga pants for an on-trend loungewear look for going shopping with your friends or chilling at home. For a more casual look, you can grab your favorite pair of ripped jeans and high-top sneakers for an outing with your girls. For a fun matching fit, pair the clothing piece with the matching bottoms.
Just like the tie dye trend you can also get the matching set piece for the marble trend. If you are looking for some pretty pastel colors to add to your closet this fall you definitely have to get these. They are too die for!

Graphics and positive words. Here at Brooklyn Cloth, we are all about spreading love, kindness, and positivity here. What better way to do that than having reminders on our clothing pieces. Better yet, our hoodies! The first designer to create a coherent visual style (brand image, as we call it today) was Coco Chanel.
She introduced a visual style in the 1920s, partly with her Chanel No. 5 perfume (1921), which was very subtly repeated in the development of her clothing and accessory lines.
Since then, we have literally a whole category while shopping called graphic tees and hoodies. A simple image added to a classic tee or hoodie makes a statement!
They are a must have in your closet! Some ways to wear graphic hoodies are with a denim jacket, biker shorts, or just some mom jeans. Check these new hoodies out now! If you don't like graphics at the moment, once you get these hoodies, you will fall in love!
