Initially panned as nothing more than a fleeting trend, fashionable sweats (or athleisure, for those of you who like a good portmanteau) have proven their staying power over the past few seasons. But unlike lots of other things we now accept as standard office-wear, we’re still not quite at the point at which wearing sweatpants to work falls under business casual.
But the good news is that the right crewneck sweatshirt is probably well within the guidelines of your office dress code. It’s a stylish piece that you can dress up (they look great under a slim-cut suit) or down (with dark, slim denim) that will keep you comfortable all day as you channel your inner Rocky in between meetings.
Due to now ubiquitous nature of the athleisure look, there are great options at whatever price point you’re comfortable paying. Below, eight of our favorites.
