Implications - Hoods are a fun, whimsical and yet practical addition to any ensemble. Designers, in putting hoods on their gowns, are attempting to redefine and reinvent a look so that it will be less restrictive and meet the demands of today's more casual consumer. Thus, it's not surprising that hoods, casual fabrics and other laid-back elements will be changing the traditional definition of formal wear from here on.
