While fall may primarily be known as “sweater weather,” we’re happy to declare that this year — amid a pandemic’s social distancing mandates and constant quarantining — sweatsuits reign supreme.
Hoodies and track pants, crewnecks and old-school joggers… These pieces are currently available in every hue of the rainbow (and literally with a rainbow on them, if you’re interested) as well as in must-have prints like tie-dye, cheetah and camouflage.
The best part is that while sweatsuits used to be relegated to stay-at-home situations, which admittedly we’re all doing a lot more of these days, 2020 offers a whole new acceptance for matching sweatsuits out in public too. Why? Because they’re adorable. But they’re also the perfect combination of style and comfort. Perfect for a run to the market or outdoor brunch with a few friends, these ‘suits are going to be your go-to outfit straight into 2021. Check out our favorites, from affordable to luxe, below.
Wild Fable Oversized Crewneck Sweatshirt ($22; target.com) & High-Rise Vintage Jogger Sweatpants ($22; target.com)
This crisp set is proof that not all sweatsuits are slouchy and relaxed! Tailored and tidy in design, we love the chic gray patchwork design — and the fact that the suit comes in sizes XS to 4X. More patterns and colors are available as well.
Aviator Nation Bolt Cropped Classic Crew ($168; bandier.com) & 5-Stripe Sweatpant ($158; bandier.com)
If you’re looking for some sweats with major cool-girl appeal, look no further than Aviator Nation. Worn by celebs, influencers and cool moms everywhere, this brand is known for its rainbow-hued stripes (which can be spotted on sweatshirt sleeves and running down or across pant legs) and the softest, coziest, vintage-feeling jersey fabric. We love the sweet rose hue of this set (it comes in white too), the raw hem on the cropped crew and the tapered jogger ankle.
Stars Above Perfectly Cozy Lounge Sweatshirt ($19.99; target.com) & Jogger Pants ($19.99; target.com)
We’re going to go ahead and dub this set a “sweatersuit.” Made from a sweet knit fabric, these pieces from Stars Above definitely look like a cashmere set that costs roughly 10 times more. We love the chest pocket and ribbed neckline as well as the jogger’s front patch pocket and soft drawstring waistband.
Z Supply Elle Rose Camo Pullover ($72; shopbop.com) & Joggers ($72; shopbop.com)
If you’re not familiar with Z Supply’s plush fabrics, well, it’s time you jump on the bandwagon. Chic and simple, the leisurewear brand is synonymous with comfortable essentials, from tees to dresses, but it’s the loungewear that we’re totally obsessed with. This dainty set mixes a faded camo print with teensy roses, perfect for pairing with sneakers and sunnies for a day of running errands.

Old Navy’s sweatsuit game is strong this year, and we can’t get enough of this striking tie-dye number from the brand. Comprised of super-soft cotton with just a bit of stretch, the jersey set is sure to make a statement, whether you’re on a Zoom call or cruising your grocery store aisles. More to know: The pants come in a multitude of additional prints, and we recommend opting for “tall” pants if you’re over 5 feet, 5 inches tall.
Athleta Farallon Printed Sweatshirt ($89; athleta.gap.com) & Stratum Camo Jogger ($108; athleta.gap.com)
No stranger to athleisure, Athleta offers a whole lot more than leggings and sports bras — yep, they’re in on the sweatsuit game too. We love this Farallon set, which comes in three dark camouflage hues and pairs a boxy, cropped hoodie (with stretch!) and roomy drawstring joggers (with pockets!).
Located right at the crossroads of comfortable and affordable, American Eagle’s fleece offerings are a great option if you don’t want to break the bank. Thin but warm, these pieces come in multiple super-cute patterns and hues that can be mixed and matched with other styles from the brand. Editor tip: Size down. The roomy tops and bottoms are oversized to begin with.
Brooklinen Montrose Hoodie ($81, originally $90; brooklinen.com) & Bed-Stuy Pant ($81, originally $90; brooklinen.com)
Brooklinen is now our go-to source for way more than just linens. In addition to comforters, throws and towels, the brand now offers some seriously luxe loungewear too. Crafted from a thick, stretchy and oh-so-soft fleece, the line includes multiple pieces, from this classic hoodie and jogger set to the flared “Baltic” pant and the wear-forever crewneck “Willow” sweatshirt.
All of the pieces can be mixed and matched — the crisp tops are perfect when paired with jeans — and the cotton/modal henley is the under layer everyone should own. Fear not, dudes — the brand also has options for you!
Vuori Halo Essential Hoodie ($84; vuoriclothing.com) & Performance Jogger ($84; vuoriclothing.com)
More than 8,000 Vuori customers agree that these are the softest joggers on the planet…and the great news is that the brand makes a matching hoodie. Featuring a slim fit and slightly cropped length, the pants look adorbs with the ultra-thin, boxy hoodie. Both pieces have the cute, contrasting drawstring too. Now that’s some matching we can get on board with.
Champion Vintage Wash Oversized Hoodie ($65; urbanoutfitters.com) & Sweatpant ($60; urbanoutfitters.com)
If you needed more proof that the ‘90s are back in fashion, look no further than Champion being the hot brand to sport these days. We love this oversized set, which comes in three pastel colors and prominently features the brand’s classic “C” logo.
Richer Poorer Recycled Fleece Hoodie ($78; revolve.com) & Sweatpant ($76; revolve.com)
One of the key brands responsible for making old-school sweatsuits majorly cool again, Richer Poorer is also primarily known for cozy intimates collections that sell out fast, amassing humongous wait lists. We love its latest offering, which is made from recycled material — each piece saves 40 water bottles from landfills. The good news is that the recycled products are just as soft and cozy as the originals, and they have the signature oversized look that is so hot right now.
Sundry Classic Pullover ($78; anthropologie.com) & Joggers ($98; anthropologie.com)
This adorable pullover-and-jogger set from Sundry is both chic and sunny — which makes sense, given that it’s designed by a Frenchman but made in California. We love the modern cuts and the eight punchy colors and prints.
Old Navy Vintage Crewneck Sweatshirt (starting at $20; oldnavy.gap.com) & Midrise Tapered-Leg Jogger Pants (starting at $28; oldnavy.gap.com)
Camouflage has long been in style, but we love the cozy, faded appearance of this set’s print. Buttery soft, the separates are adorable on their own or when paired together. We love the pant’s ribbed tapered ankle and forgiving elastic waistband too.

We love the Nimbus cotton line that includes a 1/4 zip pullover and classic sweatpants (with pockets!). Available in four cool-girl hues (the vine green and Earl Grey lavender are our faves), the pieces are made of heavyweight cotton that’s fleecy soft on the inside.
