The 21 Best Hoodies to Wear Whenever and Wherever You Want

Good hoodies are always in season. Whether it’s something you exclusively wear inside while lounging on the couch, something you throw on once the sun goes down, or something you just need to have on hand no matter what the weather’s like, there’s never a wrong time to wear a hoodie. There’s also no better time to be shopping for one.

Now, hoodies aren’t just something for hanging out and watching TV all day. They’re for both lounging and doing things and even dressing up in—and comfortably alternating between all three. You can play with the weight, the fabric, and the color. You can have one or two go-tos, or you can craft an entire closet full of hoodies to change between all year long. And of course, you already know you can do better than your ratty college sweatshirt. Here are 20 of our favorite picks.Champion Reverse Weave Full-Zip $49.95

A simple Champion hoodie serves every closet well, whether you’re someone who has a ton of hoodies or someone who just wants to have a single go-to. It’s iconic, tough, and comfortable. Adidas Trefoil $49.00BUY

Adidas’s trefoil hoodie is about as classic as a hoodie can get. It’s a heavier weight, making it perfect for cooler summer nights and fall days. You can’t go wrong with a navy-and-white color combination. Champion Reverse Weave Hoodie Sweatshirt $60.00

If a full-zip, black Champion hoodie isn’t your thing, maybe you’ll enjoy a white pullover. Different strokes!J.Crew $80.00

A slightly muted blue makes a sea of stark neutrals look bland. The garment dye gives the whole sweatshirt a kind of lived-in feel that doesn’t require any actual living in to achieve. The loop-back cotton jersey is great for nights when you need an extra layer.  Madewell Hooded Sweatshirt $82.00

Madewell’s hoodie makes for the perfect top to wear on the weekends with your most comfortable denim (light wash would be an especially cool pairing with this color). The sun-faded pink looks great on its own or layered under a jacket when fall arrives.Buck Mason Brushed Loopback Hooded $85.00

Buck Mason’s plethora of essentials is an easy place to head if you’re not sure where to get something high-quality and under $100. The inside is a cozy but cool-feeling terry cloth, and the worn-in blue color is just the right amount of bold.Tommy Jeans Essential Hoodie $90.00

This dark brown is a cool alternative to a black, navy, or white hoodie. The comfy fleece makes it great for when the temperatures start dropping, but it’s not quite time for a heavy sweater. And then there’s that graphic—a ’90s throwback classic.Polo Ralph Lauren $100.00

You already know the ’90s are back. Embrace it with a hoodie that highlights that exactly. This Polo hoodie uses a vintage logo on super soft fleece. Lululemon City Sweat Pullover $118.00

Lululemon’s hoodie is the ideal intersection between fashion and function. It’s a French terry, but it also has sweat-wicking properties, if hoodies are the kind of thing that you tend to overheat in. We’d wear this one every day.Saturdays NYC Ditch Slash $125.00

Saturdays NYC makes the ultimate couch-to-brunch sweatshirt. The heathered gray is classically relaxed, but the more tailored cut of it never feels sloppy. Wear it with chinos. Todd Snyder + Champion Terry Popover Hoodie $138.00

For those who get too hot in a heavy fleece hoodie, this lightweight terry one is the perfect alternative. It’s also a little bit looser, so you wont’ feel like you’re creating an oven with the layer. No Vacancy Inn Escape to Paradise$69.98

Hoodies are a great place to play with color. A lavender one is unexpected, and Union also brings its signature subtlety here with ease via a simple text graphic. It’s a little bit worn-looking but in a high-end way. It’s the comfiest way to feel cool. Everlane Heavyweight Cashmere $160.00

For that luxed-up, laid-back feel, go for a heavyweight cashmere. It basically feels like you’re wearing a blanket but in a work-appropriate way. Everlane makes a host of cool, classic colors, but we’re especially into this oatmeal one, which is cozy style at its finest. Noon Goons $180.00

Dark denim and white sneakers make up a hefty amount of everyday style. Level it up in the easiest way by bringing in small amounts of color. A light blue hoodie, perhaps. This one is a little nostalgic and very comfy.  Born x Raised Wish You Were Here $104.98

Tie-dye is still having a major moment, but it can be a lot of look. If you’re feeling more like dipping your toe in the water than diving right in, try this one from Born x Raised, which features a few hits of color along with a chilled-out graphic and a lot of California vibes.Ami Cotton-Jersey $245.00

Ami’s high-quality cotton-jersey feels comfortable without ever looking disheveled. This is one of our favorites to layer under a jacket, too. Try black denim, leather, or a camel topcoat. Vince Tie-Dye Pullover $158.98

You already know hoodies are good, so it’s the perfect kind of place to play with a new color or print you don’t have a ton of. A light blue and white tie-dye is on trend without feeling overbearing.  Dolce & Gabbana Loopback Cotton-Jersey $625.00

There’s never been a better time to embrace your logo-loving side, and Gucci’s cream sweatshirt does it loudly with a red print. That’s all the better! The logo movement isn’t meant to be quiet, so there’s no reason you should feel like you have to be subtle about it.
