While we’re firm proponents of owning nice sweats, we also know that cheap sweatpants, hoodies, and sweatshirts are outright necessities. Because if 2020 has made one thing abundantly clear, it’s this: your general sense of comfort is in direct proportion to the versatility of your sweats collection. You need your Cheetos-on-the-couch cheapie sweatpants. You need your good-enough-grab-a-coffee sweats. You need a looking-nice-feeling-smart pair of elevated WFH sweats. If your collection of comfy fleece suffers from a few gaps—or if you need a deeper bench, especially as temps drop—we’ve turned up the best good, cheap sweatpants, hoodies, and sweatshirts from Amazon.
Frankly, the shop that Bezos built is best for sweats on the simpler, more basic end of the spectrum. Which isn’t to say they’re bad—it’ll be a frigid day in hell before you pry the Champion hoodie off our backs. But these are the kind of sweats that can catch a drop of coffee (or matcha) without causing you to wail in despair. The kind you might buy if you’re looking to spend a chilly winter weekend DIY’ing your first tie-dye crewneck sweatshirt. They’re, you know, sweats.
So dive into the best of the cheap sweatpants and sweatshirts we could find on Amazon, and enjoy wrapping yourself in fresh fleece two days from now.
