If you’ve ever been torn between wearing your favourite hoodie or a skirt, H&M might have an option for you that lets you do both.

The fast-fashion retailer is currently selling a $US49.99 “Skirt with Hood.” Styled like a body-con skirt, the grey garment has two front pockets, a zipper from top to bottom, and a hood.

The skirt is part of the Moschino x H&M collaboration

In November, H&M collaborated with Italian luxury fashion house Moschino to release a collection of mid-range priced apparel.

While much of the Moschino x H&M collection sold out immediately, a decent amount of the line, which includes the Skirt with Hood, is still available to purchase. It appears to be selling out quickly, though, with a few pieces left in sizes 0 and 6, according to H&M’s website.

People on Twitter seem to have mixed reactions to the design

While most said that the skirt was confusing to look at, others expressed frustration that skirts and jeans are often designed without pockets.

Some people think it’s a fun idea, though.

A representative for H&M told INSIDER that the design has been ‘well received’

“There were many pieces within the collaboration that were a play on proportions,” the H&M representative said in a statement provided to INSIDER.

“The collection also included a pair of oversized dungarees and a denim skirt like a deconstructed jean jacket. The collection was very well received globally and we are very happy with the collaboration.”

H&M sells a variety of other jacket-inspired skirts

Also part of the Moschino x H&M collection is the “Denim Skirt with Buttons.” Resembling a denim jacket, this skirt retails for $US79.99 and includes a jacket collar instead of a waistline.
