I adore sweatshirts. They’re probably some of my most-worn tops, day to day, besides sweaters. But let’s be honest, many sweatshirts are SUPER casual looking and not that exciting or flattering. There are a few of the shrunken fit type that can be styled to look a bit more chic, but it takes some…uhhh… WORK to get them there. But I think I’ve found one sweatshirt to rule them all. It’s cozy and soft, but more chic on its own. It’s practically perfect (just like Mary Poppins).
The Fancy Sweatshirt: Loungewear Edition
I mean, duh. Sweatshirts for loungewear. It’s a no-brainer. This is soft soft and cozy, yet still doesn’t look sloppy even with sweatpants. #win
The Fancy Sweatshirt: Workout Wear Edition
OK, so yeah, we love wearing sweatshirts to and from a workout. But THIS ONE. The cool funnel neck and the great split hemline and the thumbholes…it’s the details that make perfection.
The Fancy Sweatshirt: Everyday Edition
This sweatshirt has it all. Cozy, chic funnel neck, great hemline, thumbholes and the fit is still flattering and not too oversized.
The Alo Haze Long Sleeve top can be found in neutral shades here on Amazon, and in many shades here on the Alo site. I’m seriously eyeing the Nectar Heather & the Eclipse Heather. It runs true to size. I’m wearing a Small here. It washes well and goes everywhere with me. I call it fancy because it’s a bit more than I would typically spend on a sweatshirt, but it has already proven worth it. A solid find to take you through the rest of winter into spring.
We’re headed to Florida to visit my parents this weekend. Though I am bringing the sweatshirt, I’m hoping I don’t need to wear it there. Sun and sand and amazing stone crab, here I come! See y’all on the flip side.
