Six to Sunday

If you crave comfort but you care to dial up the chic factor, you’ve come to the right place (buh-bye schlump, hello Six to Sunday!).

Here’s the deal: Activewear has come a long way.

Designers at every price point are leaning into design details that elevate the ordinary pieces into something you can get excited about, without giving up one iota of functionality. We’ve rounded up the best toppers that can double duty for a workout and also look super chic over jeans, joggers, cargo pants, and more.

Our Must-Have Athleisure Tops

Gap. This has all the comfort of a sweatshirt and all the polish of a cardi.

Gap Vintage Soft Oversized Cardigan

Year of Ours. Cut for a relaxed, boxy shape, we like this layered over a fitted tank or plain and simple (especially for shorties).

Year Of Ours The Carrie Tie-Front Sweatshirt

Athleta. How do we love a wrap style, let us count the ways. Great for big boobs, a belly, and/or strong shoulders.

Athleta Retroterry Wrap Sweatshirt

Athleta. The longer length just covers the booty, and the drawstring waist can be cinched for shape or left loose to lend some room.

Athleta Triumph Hybrid Crewneck Sweatshirt

Norma Kamali. The drama of this drop shoulder (and a hint of dishy skin) is not lost on us. Works on all shapes, and is especially great if you’re chesty or looking for a little extra arm room.

Norma Kamali Drop Should Sweatshirt

Carbon38. A classic and timeless design in a French terry absolutely belongs in this lineup. Plus we appreciate the looser (read forgiving) hem.

Carbon38 Breton Stripe French Terry 1/2 Zip

Varley. Taking a page from sweater style this year, this topper is a belt notch above the old hoodies in your arsenal thanks to an exaggerated collar. Works great on most shapes and we love the V-neck for those with chests.

Varley Vine Half Zip Sweatshirt

Lululemon. The cropped, boxy shape is a fantastic layering piece over short or long sleeve shells. A great pick for most body shapes.

Lululemon Mixed Fabric Full-Zip Hoodie

Free People. Lots of fun design details make this street-style ready, but it’s the A-line shape that’s forgiving and especially wonderful.

Free People Venture Pullover

Cynthia Rowley. This oversized fit is balanced by a printed lace that is oh-so feminine and charming.

Cynthia Rowley Trompe L’oeil Jumper
