9 sweatshirts you need to update your everyday (and working from home) uniform

Posted by for Fashion

From pastel shades to slogans, here’s our pick of the best statement sweatshirts to buy now and love forever. 

If you’re still at home the majority of the time, you may be struggling to find new working from home outfit ideas. The brief is simple; you need something that feels every bit as comfortable as your favourite hoodie but won’t leave you cringing with embarrassment when that fifth Zoom meeting of the day turns out not to be audio only. Enter the humble sweatshirt. 

The style equivalent of a giant hug, the perfect sweatshirt is snug, comforting and feels like a cosy armour against whatever the day has in store. If you’re thinking about the grey, frayed sweater you have stuffed in a drawer somewhere, think again: this season’s statement sweaters are not only ultra cosy but stylish, too. 

From technical surf-inspired pieces to pastel shades and tie-dye prints, sweatshirts have been big news on the catwalks this season – and have proven popular among Instagram influencers, too.

Tempted to try the trend for yourself? Styling a sweatshirt couldn’t be easier. Wearing an oversized style in a bold colour is the chicest way to channel this look; just add your go-to jeans and flip flops for an outfit that feels every bit as comfortable as loungewear, but looks infinitely more polished. 

Whether you’re looking for a classic Acne Studios sweater or a quirky oversized polo in a playful pastel hue, we’ve found the coolest sweatshirts available to buy online right now.
