I have the crocheted ones (I think they are called "cardies") which I think are better looking than the regular ones and they are perfect for late night errands. I like to do my grocery shopping at the 24 hr stores in the wee hours of the night so I like to wear thick leggings or sweats with them. Nice and cozy! I dont think they look good most of the time though, and they are terrible for wet weather! They are basically in my "leave me alone...I just want to be comfortable" attire.
