Skims Oversized Hoodie

Best overall: Skims, Oversized Hoodie โ€” $76.00

Skimsโ€™ Cotton Fleece is one of our favorite collections from Kim Kardashianโ€™s brand. The material is soft as butter, keeping you cozy and warm, yet lightweight so your body can breathe. The hooded sweatshirt has an oversized fit that feels better than your partnerโ€™s sweatshirt. It has a large pocket in the front and a length that hits right below the hips. The matching Classic Straight Leg Pant ($72) features a strong and soft waistband that looks like it was made to be rolled over since it has a tie closure on the inside.

Other small details we love include the oversized, almost structured-like hood, which looks chic, and the matching colored zipper, which lends to its streamlined appearance.

Yes, you can match the sweatshirt with almost any Aritzia sweatpants. Still, we love the Mega Cargo Sweatpant the best with it because of the utilitarian-inspired pockets on the legs and the way the pants fit around the hips, butt, and waist. Both pieces are made with the brandโ€™s cozy fleece material, which is a mid-weight material with an ultra-plush texture.

This sweatsuit has become one of our new go-tos. It has a classic design with a long-sleeve top and full-length pants. Both pieces are made of a blend of cotton, rayon, and polyester, which delivers a not-too-heavy but not-too-light design that makes it perfect for lounging around the house whether the AC or the heat is turned up. The sweatshirt has a crew neckline, dropped shoulders, and a boxy fit that rests at the hips, even for someone petite. The joggers also have a baggy fit but feel tailored and not too oversized from the knees down. Even after a few washes, the set fits and feels the same as it did out of the box. This is for you if youโ€™re looking for a high-quality basic set at a wallet-friendly price.

The Zip Hoodie and The Track Pant ($105) speak to the brandโ€™s commitment to creating garments that donโ€™t compromise style, quality, or fit. The sweatshirt is cropped but neither short nor boxy, with kangaroo pockets that fit a phone or wallet, while the matching track pants have the same supple fleece lining with a low-rise cut.

The crew neck pullover has a relaxed design from the neckline to the hem, and the logo detail is subtle and not flashy. This sweatshirt is great if youโ€™re lounging around the house and donโ€™t want a hood, while the sweatpants have a baggy fit that stays perfectly baggy and a straight-leg hem, making them a go-to pair to grab when you donโ€™t want to wear leggings or have anything tight-fitting on your body.

Just keep in mind that since the set runs large, you might want to size down. The material inside and out is unmatched and feels as good after multiple washes. Style your look with a long wool coat, chunky sneakers, and an everyday leather shoulder bag.

Sofia Vergara, Lady Gaga, Megan Fox, and many other celebrities are fans of the brand, particularly for its Turtleneck Sweatshirt and Oversized Joggers ($148). These styles have the classic appeal you yearn for in a sweatsuit with an oh-so-soft material. What makes them different, though, are the small details, like the turtleneck with a side split collar for breathability on the sweatshirt, and the no-pocket design on the sweatpants so theyโ€™re not bulky. The set isnโ€™t budget-friendly, but if you want to spice up your cozy style with a brand made famous by celebs, then this is the one for you.

We love how the crewneck sweatshirt and joggers have a simple design but feature the brandโ€™s swoosh logo in a minimalist way, making it easy to integrate into our capsule wardrobe. The jogger sweatpants have a wide waistband that sits high on the waist without digging into your skin, while the elastic hem fits comfortably on the ankles without being too tight. Despite the top and bottom having fleece lining, theyโ€™re not too hot, especially for those who get hot easily. Choose between the many gorgeous colors, from Barbie pink to chocolate brown, and wear this set over your favorite workout clothes in the winter or on its own with a puffer jacket when meeting up with friends.

This is one of its most popular sets because the thick fabric and fitted silhouettes make it look sophisticated and luxurious. It looks good with everything, from studded ballet flats, as previously seen on Parker, to combat boots as Lopez has sported with it.

For under $30 on Amazon, you can get the best basic set that feels like youโ€™re wearing a big hug. The sweatpants are a best seller on Amazon for a reason: They have a medium thickness, so they donโ€™t get too hot, a slightly tapered leg, and an elastic bottom for a more fitted look.

The sweatshirt has the same soft and thick material. Itโ€™s oversized but not overly so. Both pieces are available in multiple colorways, including year-round neutrals and winter-ready shades.

What to look for when shopping for a high-quality sweatsuit

Regardless of personal style or occasion, one thing is certain: the sweatshirt and sweatpants must match, making a complete set. Sharp agrees, noting that, โ€œmatching your sweatshirt and sweatpants feels more intentional and put together. It will always make you look elevated and not like you were in a rush in the morning and had to throw on any casual clothes.โ€

Besides getting matchy-matchy, keep the following in mind:

Fabric: When it comes to the materials of your loungewear, consider the season youโ€™re wearing it and where youโ€™re wearing itโ€”it makes a big difference! For example, if you plan to chill at home during winter, go for a heavy-duty cotton fleece sweatsuit. But if you’re stepping out, cashmere or wool is the way to go for that extra fancy vibe.

โ€œI find cashmere/wool blend to be the most elevated and seemingly put together for the winter,โ€ says Sharp. โ€œI prefer wearing this type of material and find it easier to style than a more casual cotton sweatsuit.โ€ If you want something more breathable and stretchy to break a sweat in or wear during the warmer months, elastane or spandex will be your go-to.

Fit: โ€œThe fit is everything when shopping for womenโ€™s sweatsuits, as these sets are intended to be worn casually, they should fit well so they feel as effortless as possible,” says Sharp. With that said, if youโ€™re shopping online, carefully read the reviews to understand how the set you have your eyes on runs.

Style: Women’s sweatsuits are a whole universe of options. You’ve got joggers with that snug elastic at the bottom, wide-leg and straight-leg options, capri-length, c with those mega pockets… the list goes on and on. The same goes for the tops, which come in various lengths, sizes, and designs. There’s no right or wrong optionโ€”it all comes down to personal preference.

Price: Lastly, consider your budget. If you plan on wearing your sweatsuit frequently, regardless of the weather, treat yourself and invest in a set made from high-quality materials to ensure it lasts you many wears. If you want to keep your sweat sets in rotation and ensure you always have one to wear when one is in the wash, then opt for two or three with a lower price tag to purchase more than one. If you only plan on wearing them for certain occasions, like when traveling, you can save your dollars and spend a little less on a sweatsuit.

FAQS

Can sweatsuits be fashionable for casual outings?

Yes, Sharp notes that sweatsuits can be fashionable for casual outings, especially when youโ€™re wearing a matching set and accessorizing it well.

โ€œFor every day, I would pair a cashmere jogger set with a cool pair of chunky sneakers and an oversized day bag and throw an oversized blazer on top for an easy dressed-down look,โ€ says Sharp. โ€œFor where most people wear sweatsuits toโ€”the airportโ€”I would stick to a monochromatic sweat set, add in a cool sneaker, a long coat, matching scarf, and big tote bag,โ€

Sharp also notes that sweatsuits can be dressed up for more sophisticated outings like brunch and other weekend activities. โ€œFor an elevated brunch look, I would switch out the sneaker for a cute loafer or ballet flat and then a blazer and top handle bag,โ€ says Sharp. โ€œFor a casual weekend look, especially for moms with kids, I would wear cashmere joggers with sneakers, a fitted long-sleeve tee, and then either a longline trench coat for spring, a denim jacket, or an oversized blazer.โ€

What are the best brands for womenโ€™s athletic sweatsuits?

If you’re on the lookout for top-notch athletic sweatsuits, there are some popular brands that consistently deliver quality and style. Nike, a classic choice, offers a wide range of sweatsuits known for their comfort and performance. The same goes for Adidas, Reebok, Puma, and most other popular sneaker brands. Lululemon, Athleta, and Fabletics are solid bets, too.
