Throughout quarantine, I’ve been on a mission to find the coziest, most comfortable clothing on the market. Gone are the days of squeezing into tight dresses and heels that pinch my feet. Now — especially while working from home — I’m all about sweatshirts and joggers, or as I like to call them, “day pajamas.” So when I saw my sister looking even more gorgeous than usual one day in a brand new sweatshirt, I knew I needed to order one, too. It turns out, she was wearing the Alo Yoga Freestyle Sweatshirt ($108, aloyoga.com) — a sweatshirt so sensational that almost every person in my family now owns one.
The trendsetter that she is, my sister ordered the Alo sweatshirt in both the Macaron Pink and Forest colorways, and she couldn’t stop raving about the super soft fleece and flattering fit. “I’m so obsessed with this sweatshirt, I never want to take it off,” she kept telling me during our daily phone calls. Inspired, my mom and I bought the exact same sweatshirt in the same shades she had, as well as the Blue Moon one.
It was love at first wear. The sweatshirt looks great on all three of us, and it pairs especially well with our Alo Yoga Urban Moto Sweatpants ($98, aloyoga.com) for a cute athleisure look. With its ribbed edges and raw-edge detailing, this sweatshirt looks stylish rather than sloppy, and you can definitely dress it up with pink lipstick and some stacked jewelry if you’d like to.
Almost every morning I find myself reaching for my Alo sweatshirt, which I typically style with a ballerina bun, gold hoops, and a zodiac necklace so I can feel put-together even while lounging on the couch. The sweatshirt provides just the right amount of warmth for cool evenings or nights indoors when the air conditioner is on full blast. It’s the kind of item I can wear all year long, layering it under a coat during the winter and throwing it on over lounge shorts ($56, aloyoga.com) in the summer.
Clearly, reviewers agree — the sweatshirt has all five-star reviews, with happy shoppers declaring, “I absolutely love this sweatshirt; it’s a bit pricey but well worth it” and “I ordered this sweatshirt in two colors and I’ve been living in them on repeat.”
Also noteworthy: Whenever you order clothing from Alo Yoga, you get a free 30-day trial to Alo Moves, a site with tons of yoga, pilates, and meditation videos for at-home workouts. I now do at least two Alo Moves workouts that target my back and core each week, and I often do deep-breathing exercises before bed using Alo Moves’ mindfulness series. I credit these meditation videos with helping to reduce my stress levels during quarantine so I can enjoy a full night’s sleep.
If you’re looking for your new favorite sweatshirt, look no further than this amazing option from Alo Yoga. And if you’re anything like my family (or most reviewers), you’ll probably want one in all five colors after feeling how comfortable it is.
