16 Upgraded Sweatshirts That Are Surprisingly Stylish

None of this lazy Sunday business now. We know it’s tempting to reach for your arsenal of retired Juicy tracksuits and sweats, but here’s our advice: DON’T. It’s time to flip the classic jeans + sneakers + hoodie uniform upside down by adding a whole element of style know-how to the mix. Throw in a leather moto jacket, some furry Birkenstock slides, or a glen plaid blazer and you’ll be ready to hit the ground running. Keep scrolling for 16 gym-to-street sweatshirts that are about to work their sartorial magic this season.
