If there’s one thing that all of the Well+Good editors can agree on—regardless of our areas of expertise—it’s that cozy living rooms are a *must*, especially as we continue to navigate work-from-home lifestyles.
Especially in the colder months, we’re always on the lookout for pieces we can tuck into at home, on the go, or anywhere in between—and then recommend them to you so you can do the same.
Wearing comfortable clothes on a daily basis does more than keep you warm and cozy, though: It can also make you more efficient at work. According to a poll 202182 percent of working Americans believe that being comfortable allows them to be more productive, and 71 percent say that wearing comfortable clothing allows them to feel more accomplished because they think less about how uncomfortable they are and more about the work at hand. they have.
If comfortable clothing isn’t already part of the dress code at your job, consider this permission to use these statistics as part of your campaign to change that. And if you’re looking for stylish, comfortable pieces to start your new everyday wardrobe (that you literally won’t want to take off), check out these fleece sweatshirts from Nike’s Feel-Good collection that three of our editors rate as their very own soft pieces this winter.
1. The pole
Oversized app? Collar? Retro vibe? This sweatshirt was basically created in a workshop for me. The combination of old-school preppy and modern silhouette—the cropped fit is much appreciated in my collection of high-waisted pants—nails that tricky balance of comfort and cool that’s usually so hard to find. PS: Having two kids three and under, I can attest that it’s mom-friendly (with a little smudge stick to neutralize oatmeal handprints, of course). —Eva Rohan, senior director, content + strategy
2. The crew
When it comes to sweatshirts, comfy and cute with the perfect oversized fit is always my go-to — and this fleece sweatshirt from Nike hits all three. It’s become such a staple in my closet for comfort that I’ve barely taken it off since it arrived and have already ordered another (if I like it, I’ll just get it in another color “TikTok Sound”). Plus, if you like matching sets like me, this matching dress will leave you with an effortlessly cool fit.—Maeve McCormick, Assistant Named Content Editor
3. The hood
To me, sweatshirts are like potato chips: You can’t just have one… or two… or 10—they’re such a staple in my wardrobe. But there is only one I’m wearing all the time this fall, and that’s this roomy Nike sweatshirt that feels like you’re being snuggled up in a blanket — if wearing a blanket could also make you feel like the most fashionable person walking in any crowd. The fit is oversized without being baggy, and the fleece inside is so incredibly soft that it gives the other sweatshirts in my collection a run for their money. And it makes me think, maybe I only need one. —Erin Flynn, Senior Branded Content Editor
