The 16 Best Designer Sweatshirts Straight Off the Runway and Onto Your Couch
I have a problem.
Somehow, despite owning drawers and drawers of sweatshirts, I cannot stop buying more. Here’s what happens: I go to boutiques or department stores with the intention of buying new jeans, maybe finding appropriate shoes to wear to work, or sometimes I literally just go to Soho to walk my dog and browse. And yet in all of these scenarios, I have somehow left with a new sweatshirt. This happens so much that my closet is approximately 80% sweatshirts, 15% other clothing, and 5% dog hair.
For a large portion of the year, I cannot defend my actions. “Gaby, why in the world do you need a lavender, sherpa-lined hoodie in August?” my mom might ask, as we FaceTime so I can show her my latest treasure and then quickly hang up when I realize I have no justifiable answer. This goes on for a few months every year, and as my drawer of sweatshirts increases, the temperature starts to decrease. Finally, it’s sweater weather.
This is all to say that I have a lot of experience in the densely populated sweatshirt industry and have therefore rounded up the 16 best designer sweatshirts to keep you warm and toasty this winter. Fair warning, some may cost a hefty sum, but I like to think of it as window shopping (or in this case MacBook shopping). The variety of styles and styling has allowed me to create more outfits incorporating sweatshirts than I would have thought possible.
While buying an expensive trendy item may seem pointless, purchasing a sweatshirt you love is actually an investment. Trends may come and go, but sweatshirts will always be in style. And that’s priceless. So Mom, if you are reading this, there’s your answer.
