Let’s Find This Reader a Workhorse Sweatshirt!

Confession: I’ve worn nothing but loungewear this winter. In fact, I’ve been wearing this guy every day since September and it feels so good! So, when a reader named Jane reached out to ask for tried-and-true sweatshirt recommendations, she came to the right place. Here are our answers, and I’d love to hear yours…

I realize I’m a broken record, but this signature sweatshirt may be the SOFTEST THING you will put on your body this year. The softness stays even after multiple washings, and the relaxed fit is surprisingly flattering for a sweatshirt. (This hoodie is also very cute.)

Our marketing director Maureen has been wearing this cotton one on repeat. She says it’s “super comfortable,” and it comes in 13 colors.

Editor Kim loves this one (and was looking cute in it on our Zoom meeting today). “The Met is one of my favorite places in the world, and I love having a reminder of it every day,” she says.

What about you? What cozy pieces have you been wearing? (If you want to treat yourself, how sweet is this heart pullover?)

P.S. Let’s find readers a raincoat and a wedding dress!

    Try your local skateboard shop – they should have some solid sweatshirt options.

    Late to this one, but- Kim, thank you for the inspiration to support my favorite arts organizations with merchandise. What a nice reminder of the things that are important to us!

    Yes! That jcrew one is perfection! It feels like a real shirt. I wear it everywhere. Love the length fits right below my natural waist so it is very flattering with a pair of high waisted jeans. I have them in three colors and where them every week in rotation. They fade beautifully too! Breathes great too since it’s 100% cotton.

    Uniqlo Men’s long-sleeve sweatshirt. Simple, inexpensive but feels high quality and gets better with every wear. HIGHLY recommend.

    New = Lands End. Great hoodies.
    But my favorites are always from thrifting. You find much more fun stuff, it’s cheaper, and its super soft. :)

    Any sweatshirt or hoodie from Boredwalk Tshirts!! So incredibly soft and comfy.

    Definitely the Encircled Dressy Sweatshirt – it’s comfy, stylish and ethically-made.

    They’ve got one that’s made from a blend of Merino Bamboo French Terry that’s dreamy. And, it’s made locally in Toronto (they’re also a certified B corporation and female-founded)

  8. Ok, so lululemon has this amazing sweatshirt that SO soft and comfy, but feels v chic for a sweatshirt! I also LIVE in Dudley Stephens fleeces all winter long. They are great turtleneck fleeces that feel very luxurious and look a bit more put together. I seriously love this women owned small business!!

    Late to the game with a comment. Dearborn Denim is a Chicago brand which makes jeans, tees and sweats, ethically and locally. Their sweatshirt is thick and cozy. Thick enough to keep you warm in Chicago winters. Oh and they are priced well at $49. Their jeans are great too!

    Try Homage. They have the softest sweatshirts in so many beautiful colors.

  11. Kieran says...

    Dudley Stephens fleece lock neck sweatshirts are all I wear.

  12. Jen says...

    The British brand Selfish Mother. Their supersoft sweatshirts are particularly great. And not just for mums – their “Winging It” and “Super Woman” slogan sweatshirts are great for womankind!

    At the beginning of the pandemic, I splurged on an ice dye sweatshirt from Anna Joyce on etsy. It has become my favorite article of clothing and I wear it almost every day. I love it so much and it’s only gotten better and more comfortable with every wash. Also brings a little je ne sais quoi to my zoom calls with co-workers and clients. HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
