Free People Movement Better Days Sweat
Rank & Style Approved


Free People Movement Better Days Sweat

WHY YOU NEED IT: This crewneck sweatshirt comes with pockets (yes, pockets), which is already seriously impressive, but the irresistible colorways make it even better. It's perfect for studio classes, the gym, or any activity afterward.

STYLE WITH: Pair this sweatshirt with your favorite leggings or bike shorts.

Amazon Essentials Studio Terry Long-Sleeve Convertible Hood Shirt

STYLE WITH: This sweatshirt effortlessly merges simple and chic, making it the perfect option for pairing with bottoms that demand to be the star of the show. 

USERS SAID: "As soon as I received my first one and tried it on, I got online and ordered a second! This is so comfortable and flattering! The fabric isn't too heavy, which helps it hang nicely, but it's not so thin that it shows too much. It has a nice stretch, which means I can move easily in it." 

Old Navy Breathe ON Pullover Hoodie

WHAT IT DOES: Made with Old Navy's genius Breathe ON fabric, this hoodie stretches like no other and keeps you cool through any activity thanks to moisture-wicking technology. It also has thumbhole loops at each sleeve opening, so it'll stay in place no matter how much you sprint or squat.

WHY WE LOVE IT: "I picked up this hoodie along with the matching joggers for my at-home workouts, but to be honest, I actually just lounge in it most of the time. The material is so comfortable—it's like wearing nothing!"—Kate Ferris, Associate Editor

Zella Carey Crew High/Low Sweatshirt

BEST FOR: This high-low sweatshirt is the most comforting treat after a tough workout. Rumor has it, these babies tend to sell out quickly. Run, don’t walk.

USERS SAID: “Ummm. Can I say perfect? I already have two colors and just ordered a third. It's the most perfect casual and comfy sweatshirt with a little twist (high-low hem). It's cute for running errands or throwing on after a workout. Get it now while you can.”

Hanes Sport Performance Fleece Quarter Zip Pullover

WHY YOU NEED IT: You can never go wrong with a quarter zip. Seriously, this silhouette looks great with everything from shorts to leggings to joggers. 

LOVED FOR: At just $34 a pop, you could grab one of these babies in every color. Stock up, ladies. 

Lululemon Perfectly Oversized Crew

LOVED FOR: This perfectly oversized crewneck is the sweatshirt to style with your favorite pair of bike shorts, and it doesn’t skimp on comfort. We think Princess Di would be proud.

BEST FOR: This ultra-soft sweatshirt has a bum-covering length, making it the perfect companion for leggings and slim-fitting pants.

Vuori Halo Essential Hoodie

WHY YOU NEED IT: This hoodie is perfect for a winter run. With its quick-drying and sweat-wicking capabilities, it's sure to keep you comfy and cute. 

HELPFUL TIP: Grab the matching pants to complete the look.

Athleta Mindset Sweatshirt

WHY YOU NEED IT: According to Athleta, Nirvana is the softest fabric imaginable.

USERS SAID: “These are my new favorite sweatshirts! They're incredibly soft and stretchy and good for a variety of activities: lounge, casual wear, and workouts.”

Athleta Sundown Sweatshirt

BEST FOR: With its lightweight, breathable cotton that expertly wicks away sweat, this pullover is the perfect thing to put on post-workout.

FUN FACT: This sweatshirt is made from organic cotton grown without harmful pesticides, so it benefits the whole ecosystem.

Outdoor Voices All Day Hoodie

WHY YOU NEED IT: Outdoor Voices claims this is the softest hoodie you’ll ever wear, and rave reviewers concur. With its slight crop and slim fit, this sweatshirt is perfect for winter as well as the transition to spring. 

USERS SAID: "Soft with just the right thickness—I can wear it on hot summer days, but it also keeps me warm on chilly nights. I love that it's fitted, but there's room to move, and the thumb slits are great. I bought this after getting the sweatpants and realized I need a full-body option!"
