I'm all for sweatshirts and jackets with a built-in hood, but I don't think that hoods make good additions to dress shirts, blouses and dresses. The worst trend on the runway at the Fall 2011 NY Fashion Week were hoods attached to work wear, worn up over the head. Tall woman, short woman, average-height woman, I can't think of a single woman that this trend would look good on. Hats as accessories: yes. Hoods as accessories: please, no.
