Comfort has always been an important part of any closet, but especially so these days. Between working from home, working out at home and doing your best to keep as much social distance as possible, there’s really no reason to fall into any discomfort.
Of course, sweatshirts aren’t what they used to be – and sweatshirts are no exception. These days, you can find comfortable, soft, high-quality and stylish sweatshirts to make the most of your athleisure look. Here are some of the best sweatshirts for women that will do everything you need without sacrificing comfort.
Cuyana Fleece Cropped Sweatshirt
The Cuyana Fleece Cropped Sweatshirt is the perfect crew neck sweatshirt. It’s made from a blend of Sublima cotton and Lycra and is OEKO-TEX certified, making it both sustainable and stylish. We chose it as our best overall choice because of its classic style and timeless, stylish cut look. It comes in stunning everyday colors and pairs perfectly with everything from casual dress-up to casual weekend wear.
Carhartt Women’s Clarksburg Pullover Sweatshirt
As the temperatures continue to drop, you may be looking for a women’s sweatshirt with extra warmth. Carhartt’s Clarksburg Pullover Sweatshirt is made from 10.5 oz. material, making it slightly heavier than your average hoodie. Rib-knit cuffs and waistline help keep the cold out, and front pockets hold all your essentials.
Daily Ritual Terry Cotton and Modal Sweatshirt
This crew neck sweatshirt is a versatile basic with a minimalist design available in a variety of solid colors, including lake blue, navy and black. It’s made from a 58% cotton, 39% modal and 3% elastane blend and is machine washable to make laundry day a little easier. You can pair this classic sweatshirt with yoga pants for a comfortable outfit you’ll never want to take off, or pair it with dark jeans, a necklace and boots for a stylish daytime look.
Sweaty Betty After Class Cropped Sweatshirt
This short sweatshirt from Sweaty Betty is beautifully made from extremely soft, silky organic cotton. The piece is designed to be worn after a workout, with a relaxed, straight cut and cute thumbholes at the cuffs. Although it comes with a higher price tag, this is one sweatshirt where you can really tell the difference and it’s worth the extra few cents.
Alan Jones Clothing Women’s Cotton Hooded Neck Sweatshirt
The Jones Clothing Women’s Cotton Hooded Neck Sweatshirt is a great way to stay warm and comfortable in any season. Made from a soft, breathable cotton blend, this hoodie is lightweight and comfortable. It features a classic hooded neckline and drawstring hood for extra warmth. Ribbed cuffs and hem fit snugly, and kangaroo-style pockets keep your hands warm and your essentials within reach.
What to remember when buying sweatshirts for women?
Sweatshirts come in fitted, loose and oversized styles, and which style you choose is entirely up to you. As a general rule, you need to balance your silhouette, so an oversized style will look great with leggings or bike shorts, while a more fitted style will look better with jeans. Ultimately, it just depends on what you like better.
“Sweatshirt” is really a generic term for non-knit or woven sweaters (although knit and woven sweatshirts certainly do exist). There are hoodies and crew necks, zip-ups and pullovers, breathable cotton, super warm fleece, and so on. Here too, it depends on personal preference and what season to wear the sweatshirt you intend to wear on what occasion. For example, a lightweight crew neck is perfect for a fall Starbucks run, while a fleece hoodie is the perfect companion for a harsh winter hibernation.
