21 surpassingly cool sweatshirts

8

The jaguar print on this faded black number is so good, and I like the sweet lip detail too.

The narrow hem here is a nice, polished touch.

This feels like an updated version of the Agnes B snap cardigan so many of us had in the 80s and 90s.

The tie dye print on this cropped hoodie is nice and graphic.

What could be more fun than a bright yellow winky face?

This floral print is so winning in black and yellow.

The striped details here are subtle but statement-y.

And here’s another tie dye option—I love the cool/spooky eyes.

A nicely streamlined deep V-neck; I also like the balloon sleeve.

This lilac-hued short-sleeved sweatshirt is so up my alley (and the color is right on trend). Here’s one in black, and here’s something cheaper.

A pleasantly unexpected  houndstooth sweatshirt

This reminds me of a piece of Fruit Stripe gum, but in a good way.

Subtle stripes that are neutral enough to go with pretty much anything.

Here’s a really good henley sweatshirt; it also comes in black, but is sold out in some sizes.

This eensy grey leopard print is fun and versatile.

This oversized hoodie would be a perfect layering piece.

A babydoll tunic that comes in several good colors.

The pleating at the shoulder of this one is a nicely feminine detail.

You can’t go too far wrong with a zebra print.

I’d wear this one with the top few snaps undone.

Here’s a floral print that really kind of resembles camo, which is cool.

    Hi Kim,

    Loyal reader here, just thought you might be interested to see this: https://www.instagram.com/p/CL2DZkPHzdZ/?igshid=13i2sztofx8ap

    My personal choice has been not to buy from Anthro any longer after stories about profiling in stores, and they continue to disappoint with stuff like this.

    Thanks for all you do.

    When I was in my late 20s/30s, I would’ve been a goner for that babydoll tunic. I’m definitely a fan of different form factors in sweatshirt material (esp. French terry sweatshirt material). These days, loving the Derek Lam snapbutton sweatshirt. If it was $150 cheaper and came in black or dark gray, I’d snap it up. Very tempted by the AGOLDE deep V.

    When I read “babydoll tunic” I had a Sassy flashback moment. <3

    Love those sweatshirts! It’s really disappointing when the size range on most of them stop at a size 12. Please give more than one extended size option.

    The Fruit Stripe gum reference is PERFECT!

    I had an instant negative reaction to the babydoll sweatshirt and realized I associate it with my ex-husband, 18 years older than me, who loved to buy me babydoll dresses when we were dating in the mid ’90s –ICK! I shoulda seen it all coming…

    I finally gave in to a tie-dye whim, in a pair of navy and white canvas sneakers like the pattern of the Raquel Allegra cropped hoodie. What’s the old saying? If you wore it the first time around, shake it up the next time around. I won’t wear tie-dye near my face.
