My (current) sweatshirts/ hoodies -- and where shall I find my new one?

I like sweatshirts and hoodies both as fashion and as gear/ loungewear. I tend to wear them more for very casual situations but occasionally I'll throw a sweatshirt over a skirt for a fun juxtaposition (like a graphic tee with a skirt) and sometimes I'll wear a soft cashmere hoodie under a blazer. 

The first four are my current versions. 1 cashmere stripe from Boden (winter), one cashmere/ wool blend from Zella (very pilly, even with attention and care, but too darn useful to let go of yet!), one merino blend one from Icebreaker (mostly gear/ lounge; cross seasonal), and one cotton terry cropped one from J. Crew (more as a winter "tee" or a spring/summer "warmup.") 

I have to say my favourite sweatshirt ever was a BR one with sequins I had some years back. It was so much fun! 

I would like a new, brighter, spring-like one. Any suggestions for me? I think the bubblebum pink that Angie got from BR is adorable but too warm a pink for me?

    Since you are a writer, the William Shakespeare “To be or not to be, that is the question” sweatshirt from Zara. I bought this and love the quote and blue colour.

    Ooh! Those are fun! Really fresh blues, both. I will investigate!

    I have this Lucky Brand indigo tie dye sweatshirt, and I really like it.  Lightweight, though, good for spring.

    I suspect you would get good wear from a sweatshirt or hoodie in summer in Victoria with the sea breezes.  And your ones are nice but I agree a lighter colour would be lovely.  I like all the blue ones above.

    How about in the grey!

    Nice collection! I have been eying the blue-black tiger (or zebra?) stripe from Boden for myself.

  • Style Fan replied 1 year ago

    Nice ideas.  I have been eyeing the Boden one in mustard.  I am always worried about ordering from Boden because of returns.

  • Suz replied 1 year ago

    Ooh, these are all great ideas. Off to investigate more thoroughly. Thank you! I will keep you posted.

    The polka dot Boden is super cute ! I can also see you wearing the grey version of the BR puff sleeve .

  • shevia replied 1 year ago

    Buying sweatshirts retail is way too remote and idea for me to help, but I do like the polka dot one!

  • Angie replied 1 year ago

    I like Clare V and Spiritual Gangster sweatshirts because they feel soft and drapy. I have two really plain but nice due to light weight and v neck Treasure and Bond sweatshirts from Nordstrom that I was going to recommend, but have sold out. Nili Lotan sweatshirts are amazing because they're cut so interestingly ... but no one should ever buy one at full price.

    I ordered this one and a couple other items to support Boden! However this appears to be stuck in customs since US Postal service hasn’t even attached a package to the tracking number yet, and it’s been days. Hopefully it’s just held up and not lost. 


    I like the light blue ones for you!

    Wish I was in Canada.  Yay Canada.

    Wow, so many great choices here. I really love that M&S Soft Touch polka dot one in navy that Angie suggests for you.
