If you haven’t already, it might be time to retire some of your seen-better-days baggy sweatpants and stretched out hoodies to make shelf space for today’s stylish matching sweatsuits. Made of innovative fabrics and available in so many color options, this new crop of sweats are lighter, softer, and more breathable than our old standbys. While they still can be worn as separates, a matched set looks far more stylish and pulled together. An added benefit is that wearing one color head-to-toe elongates the body and makes us all look a bit taller and leaner. With a relaxed but not too baggy fit, these on-trend sweatsuits can be worn almost anywhere your day takes you.
Here are my edited selections of sweatsuits to suit all styles and budgets.
Vuori makes premium performance apparel inspired by the active Coastal California lifestyle. Their performance jogger has over 5,000 five star reviews, many of which say they are the most comfortable and flattering pant they own! Available in several colors.
Outdoor Voices was founded in 2014 by a graduate of the Parsons School of Design. They have a cult following (including my daughter) and this lightweight cloudknit sweatsuit may just be the softest sweats you’ll ever wear. They have hundreds of positive reviews and come in several colors. They sell out fast so don’t delay if you see one you like.
The Perfectly Oversized Crew from Lululemon comes in 7 colors and has that just-right loose fit. Pair it with this crop pant (great for petites!) or choose from several other tees and leggings in the same shade of iron blue.
From Old Navy, this sweatsuit is made of 93% cotton and 7% polyester. Made from specially dyed fleece, it comes in several colors and patterns. These sweatpants as well as a tapered-leg option also come in tall.
Free People Movement offers performance-ready activewear, practice-perfect styles and beyond-the-gym staples. This jogger set comes in several colors, but I especially love this aurora blue shade.
From BP at Nordstrom, this sweatsuit is made from a rayon polyester spandex blend and has lots of great reviews. Lounge around all weekend long in this oh-so-cozy outfit.
This cropped fit sweatshirt and matching sweatpants from Athleta come in regular, petite and tall sizing. The top is available in black and camo, and the joggers come in lots of solids too.
Comfortable simplicity with a conscience—that’s what Alternative clothing is all about. The brand focuses on transparency in its manufacturing process, fair labor and sustainable materials. Designed in Atlanta, Alternative’s vintage-soft basics, loungewear and workout apparel are cozy and this hoodie is currently on sale.
This Nike Yoga Top and Flow Pant in oatmeal heather is made from a soft, lightweight thermal fabric. The mostly cotton with a hint of spandex fabric will help keep you warm and comfortable before, during and after your workout.
