One day we’ll break out our favorite blouses, breezy dresses and work-ready blazers once more. But today is not that day. We’re now reaching for our comfiest sweatshirts, coziest knits and anything that feels like we’re being constantly hugged by kittens. If you’re getting a little bored of your regular rotation of sweats (we’re right there with ya), here are 17 sweaters and sweatshirts that are every bit as chic as they are comfy. As for bottoms? PJ pants should work just fine.

2. madewell Wellesley Bobble Pullover Sweater

Those little orange pom-poms are all you need to take a classic navy crewneck and make it into something much more fun.

Available in sizes XXS to XL

3. vero Moda Curve Rana New Block Sweater

Sure, you might already own a color blocked sweater (or two), but we’ve never seen with vertical zig-zags in this unexpected color combo. Be prepared to field lots of people asking, “OMG, where’d you get that?”

Available in sizes 14 to 22

4. free People Easy Street Tunic Sweater

Free People has basically mastered the art of creating oversize clothing that’s still flattering, so it should come as no surprise to find a cozy draped knit (just look at the sleeve detail!) from the brand on our list of must-haves.

Because who doesn’t want to add a little sparkle to their day? Even better, this cardi is made from recycled and sustainably soured materials.

6. naadam Cropped Hoodie

If you’re going to spring for a classic hoodie, you might as well make it cashmere.

Buy it ($135)

Available in sizes XS to XL


7. inhabit 100% Cashmere Henley

Speaking of cashmere, this woven henley is super lightweight, meaning you can continue to wear it long into summer. And then again into fall, winter, spring…you get it.

Buy it ($378)

Available in sizes XS to L

8. sanctuary Tie-dyed Cardigan

We like to think of long cardigans as a sort of mid-way point between our bathrobe and workwear. Which is why we plan to rock this style around the house as often as possible.

Available in sizes XS to 3X

9. l.l.bean Sweater Fleece Pullover

You can never go wrong with a classic fleece. And this pullover has been one of L.L.Bean’s more enduring styles (seriously, your mom probably has one of her very own), so if you haven’t already invested in one for yourself, now’s the time to do it.

Available in sizes XS to 3X

10. anthropologie Karla Boat Neck Sweater

The tapered waist and gorgeous boat neck give this sweater a super elegant silhouette—without sacrificing an ounce of comfort.

Available in sizes to 3X

11. munthe Emil Pullover

We really dig the retro colors on this oversize knit. More than that, however, we're drooling over the super-soft alpaca wool fabric.

Available in sizes 2 to 10

12. lou & Grey Upstate Sweatshirt

Multiple PureWow editors cite this Lou & Grey number as the softest, most comfortable sweatshirt they’ve ever owned. Oh, and did we mention there are matching sweatpants? Yeah. We’ve got a few in our rotation.

Available in sizes XS to XL

13. ryllace Beachcomber Sweater

The open weave and mix of gorgeous purply grays and expensive-looking camel beige are giving us major Hamptons vibes.

Available in sizes 1X to 3X

14. grey State Apparel Ashulia Sweatshirt

All of Grey State Apparel’s clothing is made from eco-friendly fabrics and for every purchase, the brand makes a donation to One Tree Planted. This particular sweatshirt was hand-embroidered by women artisans in Bangladesh and 20 percent of the proceeds fund education for young women and girls in their communities. So, this comfy topper can make you feel good on a whole other level.

Available in sizes XS to XL

15. scotch & Soda Jacquared Bandana Sweater

A sleek, new take on an outdoor classic. (Although we don’t really recommend wearing this while hiking.)

Available in sizes XS to XL

16. lou & Grey Ocean Air Sweater

For days when you want all the comfort of a long-sleeve knit without all the warmth. Plus, we're kind of in love with the adjustable drawstring at the waist.

Available in sizes XS to XL

17. athleta Coaster Luxe Sweatshirt

This yoga-ready topper is part of Athleta’s Beyond Soft collection, and let us tell you, this pullover definitely lives up to its name. The plush inner lining stays that way, even after a few washes.

Available in sizes XXS to 3X
