Women's Sweatshirts

Everyone loves a sweatshirt. From pullovers to hoodies to quarter-zips, half-zips, and full zips to cardigans, sweatshirts are classic and essential to feeling cozy every day. Our assortment of sweatshirts for women is almost all best sellers. Every single style is offered in every single size —00 to 40—and engineered to fit perfectly. They’re also made from the most premium fabrics like French terry and Peruvian Pima cotton. Plus, they’re luxe and elevated (many hold their shape and are pill-resistant), so you can wear them out of the house, too!

If you’re wondering when sweatshirts made it onto the scene, it all started in 1920. They were initially worn as a comfortable alternative to traditional sportswear and team uniforms. It wasn’t until the 1960s that the sweatshirt became a mainstay in many other wardrobes. Universities and colleges began selling crewneck sweatshirts with screen-printed logos and crests, and the comfy item became a collegiate staple. Sweatshirts have since been continuously trending throughout history—think oversized fleece sweatshirts and pullover hoodies worn with leggings and leg warmers in the 1980s, every athleisure look through the 1990s, logomania through the 2000s, and streetwear style today.

The sweatshirt is a perennial essential. A forever style that’s now as versatile as it is comfortable. Find your next favorite with US. Our selection starts classic and evolves into trendier fashion versions with elevated details. We love a V-neck with a drawstring, for example, in addition to the traditional crew raglan. If you don’t see what you need, we love hearing your thoughts and suggestions. Let US know what’s missing—is it tie dye and colorblock patterns, fleece hoodies or fleece crew necks, or styles in a fuzzy sherpa fabric? Each season brings a new reason to design with you in mind and fill your wardrobe with your wants.

What are the sweatshirts like at Universal Standard?

There’s no single sweatshirt style with US. We have roomy fits, classic fits, cropped hems, elongated hems, crew necks, long sleeve hoodies, funnel necks, and even t-shirt sweatshirts (that’s a short sleeve sweatshirt, FYI)! While shopping, you’ll find helpful icons that let you know how breathable, stretchy, and easy each item is. One thing they all share is that they’re made from the softest, most luxurious fabrics that last and last over time. Oh, and don’t worry about settling for the same old gray—we have a kaleidoscope of colors from brights to earthy neutrals as well as classic shades.

How should a women’s sweatshirt fit?

There’s no right way for a sweatshirt to fit—size up for an oversized sweatshirt or oversized hoodie with extra coziness and room for layering, or take your true size for a classic pullover sweatshirt silhouette that sits nicely under your outerwear. That said, all of our sweatshirt styles are engineered to fit 22 sizes: 00 to 40.

Why wear a sweatshirt?

If you live in t-shirts, sometimes you need to switch things up. A sweatshirt is a great everyday style that gives off that relaxed, sporty vibe perfect for casual hangs, running errands, or meeting friends. Of course, you can also wear sweatshirts as true activewear. Throw on a zip up hoodie or hooded sweatshirt over your cropped tank or bodysuit. Women’s hoodies look great with bike shorts, leggings, and sweatpants, too. We even wear ours to bed! They’re that comfortable. The most important takeaway is that sweatshirts are extremely versatile. From crew sweatshirt to terry hoodie to zip sweatshirt or full-zip hoodie, hoodies & sweatshirts (in general, but mostly ours) work with just about anything else you own. So, why not wear a sweatshirt?

Both are warm, comfortable, and must-haves for keeping cozy, but your sweatshirt prefers streaming movies to sitting by the fire and ordering takeout to strolling the neighborhood with hot cocoa.
