Comfort Is Key—& Luckily Every Single Universal Standard Sweatshirt Is 20% Off Right Now

No matter what your work from home situation looks like, we can all agree that comfort is key. That’s why now, more than ever, we’re grateful for leisurewear.

Yes, we know Karl Lagerfeld once famously said sweatpants are “a sign of defeat,” but he was missing out. So, now that many of us are tucked safely in our homes for the foreseeable future, Universal Standard is stepping up to offer some literal comfort.

From now until Saturday, April 11, the brand is offering 20 percent off all sweatshirts site-wide. You know and love Universal Standard for its extended sizing options and thoughtful construction. And, as we’ve come to realize, its streetwear-inspired pieces are basically made for those who feel like looking cute while staying extremely comfortable (read: us). Here, five sweatshirts we’re adding to cart and planning to show off at our next Zoom meeting.
