Over the past 12 months, our sweatshirt collection has really stepped into the spotlight. And while we don’t see the “all loungewear, all the time” trend fading anytime soon, we’re starting to miss getting dressed up. Plus, the basic grey crewneck we’ve been wearing multiple times a week since March 2020 has definitely seen better days. Enter: Dressy sweatshirts. With features like ruffles, embellishments, exaggerated sleeves and fancy prints, they make any outfit look a bit more elevated—without sacrificing comfort. Here, 14 dressy sweatshirts we’re eyeing right now.

1. Everlane The Renew Fleece Raglan Sweatshirt
This slightly cropped fleece sweatshirt will quickly become your go-to on chilly mornings and cool nights. If you want to go trendy, opt for the pale sage or oatmeal hues but whatever color you choose, know that this pullover will look great layered over a thin turtleneck or under a swingy wool coat. Bonus: Each sweatshirt is made from 32 recycled plastic water bottles, hence the name ReNew.
5. Maje Palm Tree Embellished Sweatshirt
Dreaming of a tropical vacay post-pandemic? These sparkling palm trees will make you feel one step closer to lazy days on the beach. Pair this sweatshirt with an oversized denim jacket and pleated skirt for a lunch date, or pajama pants for days spent at home.
6. Lucy Paris Pearl-embellished Sweatshirt
Thanks to Vice President Kamala Harris, pearls are making a serious comeback. Lean into the trend with this minimalist sweatshirt, which features voluminous, pearl-embellished sleeves.
9. Acne Studios Pink Crewneck Sweatshirt
It’s easy to write off oversized sweatshirts as frumpy and unflattering, but that’s not the case with this blush one from uber-stylish, Stockholm-based brand Acne Studios. Channel your inner Ariana Grande and throw this sweatshirt on over leggings for an effortlessly cool ensemble. Just add a high ponytail.
10. Marni Floral Sweatshirt
Even if your plans for the day only involve walking the dog, you’ll feel totally sophisticated doing so in this bold graphic design. The 100 percent cotton material is so soft, you’ll find yourself sporting it multiple times a week. Just keep in mind that it should be hand-washed to avoid ruining the floral logo on the front.
