19 highly covetable sweatshirts

19

These are what I see myself living in this fall and into winter, because why not? They’re comfy, no-fuss, and have become, in recent years, increasingly cool. This tie dye number has such a gorgeous and rich color combination, and no two are exactly alike.

A coffee-hued leopard print that makes a statement, but not too much of one.

This one from Allsaints has such a graceful waterfall front.

This slightly cropped baloon-sleeved sweatshirt looks just as polished as any V-neck sweater might.

How fun and graphic is this zebra print from Kule? I especially like the pops of blue and red at the sleeves.

This Rachel Comey specimen isn’t cheap, but it’s so damn chic and looks like the kind of piece that’d go into seriously high closet rotation.

I dig the rainbow-ish stripes here; they really pop against the grey.

Just a classic black sweatshirt at a good price.

This short sleeve puff shoulder sweatshirt from The Great is pretty sweet, and would be good layered over a long-sleeved T-shirt.

I really love the fuzzy texture here, as well as the handy side-zips.

Such a chic-yet-classic little dolman sleeve option that also comes in a good inky black, and is just about cheap enough to spring for both, if you so choose/can’t make up your mind.

The old-school details are stellar on this one.

And of course you know how cute and flattering I think a twist-front is.

I might have to go for this patriotic choice; there’s one for Los Angeles too.

This seems appealingly lightweight, and I dig the camo print.

This lace-up sweatshirt from Madewell has appealingly wide sleeves.

The puff sleeve here is sweet and borderline prissy, but not if you pair it with beaten in jeans or cargo pants.

I just really love this blue.

And finally: a python print, for when you’re feeling sassy.

    Animal prints seem to be calling my name – the zebra Kule and the leopard Zsupply are so cute! But, I do ❤️ New York.

    Anna Joyce is a great independent source for tie dyed sweatshirts and other cool stuff, and local to me here in Portland, OR. She also has a great book on dye projects.

    Sweatshirts are my eternal temptation and I really don’t need more sweatshirts!

    Am I being OCD for being bothered by the minor discrepancy in the sweatshirt gray with the sweats gray in the Aviator Nation Daydream Sweatshirt Nordstrom styling? I do like it otherwise, and it doesn’t look too thick.

    I’m such a fool for side zips — in sweatshirts and sweaters!! Thanks for sharing that.

      Thanks, Kim. I just pulled the trigger, not on that Varley sherpa side-zip, but on this other Varley ribbed side-zip (https://www.shopbop.com/manning-sweatshirt-varley/vp/v=1/1538281292.htm?colorId=1071C). I’ve been looking for a side-zip sweater or sweatshirt for a LONG time.

    Am I the only one who finds a crew-neck anything unflattering? I need a deeper cut to show off a little of my collarbone, but this is not easy to find and definitely hard to determine from pics online, particularly on long-necked models lol.

      I don’t usually have luck with Everlane, but this sweatshirt is my absolute favorite. The crew neck is wide enough to be flattering. I don’t like typical crew necks, either: https://www.everlane.com/products/womens-ltweight-frenchterry-crew-hthrgrey?collection=womens-sweaters

      What about this modified crew-neck — more of a boatneck take on a crew-neck?
      https://www.shopbop.com/bristol-pullover-koral-activewear/vp/v=1/1555494714.htm?colorId=12867

      I know what you mean (as the owner of a short, thicker neck myself), but I find some crew-necks more doable than others. I also don’t like super tight necks of any kind, as they are not comfortable.

        Thanks for the suggestions and links, ladies! Can’t say how often I’ve ordered crewnecks only to send them back!

    I told myself not to click on the Rachel Comey link….going to be thinking about that one for awhile… xs/s is out of stock but available elsewhere (and if anyone wants a lighter color, they appear to be on sale in a bunch of places). But, of course, I want (and may get) the pricey one.

      Same. Bookmarked page and will marinate on it for a bit. Thanks, Kim for convincing me I need ALL the new sweatshirts 😉

    Love a good sweatshirt. Pandemic or no. That Madewell blue one is calling to me. Such a great color!

    Sweatshirts have been the perfect pandemic-wear for me — comfortable, cozy, no need to stress about a trip to the dry cleaners. I’ve been enjoying the Kule “Love” sweatshirt you recommended a while back, which was pricey but between price-per-wear and how it’s holding up with washings, totally worth it. Another pandemic sweatshirt purchase has been an old-school style Champion reverse weave, just like the ones I wore back in high school and college. There’s something about the weight of the reverse weave that’s comforting. Thanks for the great selections here. The one with side-zippers looks especially nice for fall.

      Does reverse weave feel lighter or heavier? I’m trying to understand it — the pics do look very good and I understand that reverse means the knit pattern goes side to side instead of up and down.
      I also like inside out terrycloth sweatshirt material, where the terry is turned out and the typical smooth side is inside now. I just love French terry in general — I prefer that kind of fleece or sweatshirt to the more fuzzy type. It looks more elegant and feels more breathable.

        The reverse weave feels more substantial and not as pliable as a regular sweatshirt. It seems heavier to me.

    Pulled the trigger on the All Saints one & it arrived today. It filled a whole in my life I didn’t know I had! Seriously it’s fantastic even though a bit on the pricey side.
