They bring comfort just by themselves on cooler days or layered with your best wool coat or other winter essentials on even colder days. With many of us still working from home, a hoodie’s also an excellent go-to around the house. Just make sure to layer it with a blazer for those important Zoom meetings.
With so many different options out there, finding the perfect hoodie can be a little challenging. Fabrics, colors, fit, drawstring, and zippers all play a role in the appearance of the coveted top, but in the end, it’s a performance and comfort regardless of the day of the week. You should always prioritize quality because, more than likely, you’ll be spending a lot of time in it. We rounded up some of the best hoodies for every style.
Best Overall Hoodie: Flint and Tinder 10-Year Pullover
There’s a reason this hoodie is guaranteed for 10 years (and likely to last well beyond that).

Not in our book, because it’s a look made for days around town with family and friends. This AG hoodie is fitting coming from a brand that excels at denim, and it stands apart for the use of the brand’s exclusive Terry cotton, plus a muted wash.

Best Hoodie for the Gym: lululemon At Ease Hoodie
All hooded sweatshirts are great for weekend lounging or travel, but some are better-suited than others when you want to pound the pavement or knock out more reps at the gym. The great thing is, lululemon has put plenty of technological know-how into this performance hoodie, which keeps you moving free and easy through workout after workout.
