Right now, sundresses, business casual wear, and date night outfits are getting a bit of a break. While they stay hanging in our closets, it's the comfy t-shirts, leggings, and cozy loungewear that are getting all the attention as we #StayHome. One piece, in particular, that is getting a lot of love is the hoodie.

Hoodies seem to be the perfect go-to for all the activities currently filling our time. A hoodie provides warmth during your daily jog or a brisk walk around the neighborhood (and if you start to overheat, just knot it around your waist!), while also offering comfort while Netflix binging at home.

Plus, hoodies deliver on trendy street style (and are now socially acceptable work attire) and allow you to hide the fact from your Zoom colleagues that you've been ignoring your bras during the quarantine. C'est la vie. There is also something comforting about pulling the hood over your head; it almost feels like a warm hug while you finish a puzzle or indulge in another episode of The Office.

If you are currently lacking in the hoodie department or want to add a few more styles to your weekly rotation, here are 10 of the best hoodies for women to have delivered to your doorstep. (Related: The 10 Leggings Shape Editors Are Currently Living In)

Vuori Halo Performance Hoodie


Soft and lightweight, this topper is as suitable for couch lounging as it is for a light workout. While you work up a sweat, the cropped cut allows for airflow; and on non-active days, the pop of color adds some cheer while you WFH, bake, or read a book.

One customer said: "If you don't own this brand, you are missing out. Not only is this ridiculously soft, but it stays that way wash after wash. Great bright color, super lightweight."

Adidas Original Trefoil Hoodie


A bold graphic logo sweatshirt is always in style. This Adidas hoodie may appear to be oversized, but the fit is actually closer to the body. Also nice: The longer length provides extra warmth and coverage, and looks super flattering worn over leggings.

"I thought it was going to be the same as ordering a unisex sweatshirt or the men's xs/sm but it's not," shared a reviewer. "This is even better and cut for a woman. Not narrow, not too short but not too big and sloppy either. It's perfect and has a feminine loose fit."

Columbia Solar Shield Hoodie


Ideal for long runs or outdoor workouts, this hoodie is breathable and moisture-wicking. The fabric also has built-in UPF to protect you from the sun. So, there's no need to worry if you missed a spot with the sunscreen—like the back of your ears—since the hood has you covered.

"It fits great and it isn't super heavy, which I love," wrote a shopper. "I don't normally wear long sleeves because I feel too hot in them sometimes. But this fabric is very breathable and I love it!! Definitely a good buy!!"

Champion Campus French Terry


Social distancing and staying home is the perfect time to take fashion risks and mix prints. No one is judging, and giant polka dots are fun and quirky. Plus, the jersey-lined hood and drawstrings come in handy if it gets too windy while you are outside walking your dog or getting fresh air.

"This hoodie is so soft and comfortable against my skin," said a buyer. "I love the design and it's well made. It fits me so nicely. It's not too snug or too loose on me. I have washed it a couple of times and the color hasn't faded and the material hasn't shrunk. I am definitely getting another one in a different color."

Athleta Ascend Warm Up Hoodie

The ruched elastic bottom of this half-zip hoodie not only keeps it in place but also gives it a refined, fashion-forward look. It's made from recycled poly, a material sourced from plastic bottles, so you can really feel good about your purchase. (Psst, there's a hidden compartment in the pocket to keep your phone or hand sanitizer secure and safe during a walk, run, hike, or bike ride.)

One customer said: "I originally bought this to rollerblade because it has that neon 90s vibe. But I love it so much, I wear it all the time! The color is a little lighter and brighter than the photo. The fit is loose but the tighter waistband makes it more form-fitting. Love the hood and the thumbholes to keep my hands warm."

Alo Interval Microfleece Pullover Hoodie


A black hoodie is just as classic as your LBD or favorite pair of solid black leggings. It is super versatile and can easily be dressed up or down by pairing it with chic joggers or a silk skirt for times when you want to look more put together—whether it's on an airplane or a video chat with your boss.

"Love this hoodie!" raved one shopper. "I sized up because I like my sweaters a little relaxed and oversized. It’s so soft, thick material. Absolutely love it!"

Found Denim Animal Print Washed Cotton Hoodie


No need to hide your vibrant personality just because you're in isolation. This 100 percent cotton sweatshirt combines animal print with a neon stripe for a fun piece that transitions nicely when social distancing is over. Wear it with black leggings and slippers today, and denim and sneakers in the future.

"I am loving this material. It's light. It does not have a terry feel, it's almost like a very heavy t-shirt," wrote a reviewer. "It will be perfect for spring and could be layered in colder weather."

Aerie Full-Zip Oversized Hoodie


Slouchy doesn't have to equal sloppy. This cute, longer style full-zip acts just like a long cardigan. Pair it over your boxers or boy shorts to enjoy your morning coffee or over your favorite leggings and a sports bra in between streaming fitness classes.

One customer said: "I couldn't have asked for a more comfortable hoodie to lounge in while we are in quarantine. My days of putting on stuffy, uncomfortable work clothes are over. This is my go-to outfit. I have to admit I have worn it every day since I got it. It's so cozy.

Lulus Never Better Tan Sherpa Pullover Hoodie

Tan and fuzzy, just like your favorite teddy bear, this incredibly soft, sherpa pullover was made for quarantine. The relaxed silhouette and drop shoulder accommodate those with broader shoulders, and the comfy fit won't ride up when you lift your arms. Bonus: The front kangaroo pocket is convenient for storing your essentials when running errands. (Related: Sherpa Jackets, Shoes, and More to Snag While It's Still Cold)

"First Sherpa I ever bought since I've been picky about finding the right one and I love it," wrote a reviewer. "Warm but still flattering and not bulky. This is definitely a lightweight version. I've worn on its own but it also layers well over tighter shirts or under other jackets. It held up great with multiple wears and I washed it and hung it to dry then ran it quickly through the dryer to fluff again and it held up. Hits at hips while still letting your butt look good in leggings."

Prana Graphic Hoodie


Fun graphic sweatshirts—like this one—allow you to show a bit more of your style or mood. This sustainable style is made from organic cotton and recycled polyester blend. The heathered fabric also gives it a lived-in, vintage look, perfect for a hike or your next google hang with your BFFs. (Related: 19 Eco-Friendly Products That Are Good for the Earth and Your Life)

"This is such a cute hoodie! I love the fun rainbow print on the front," shared a reviewer. "The material is on the lighter side so very nice for spring and summer evenings or cool early mornings. I'm usually an XS but I ordered small to wear T-shirt underneath."

The North Face Women's Trivert Pullover Hoodie


This classic hoodie is perfect for throwing on when you're working from home or running to the supermarket or laundromat. The soft fabric makes it feel like you're wearing pajamas, yet the sporty style and graphic logo make it cute enough to wear in public. Choose from six solid colorways.

One customer said: "The material is soft and comfortable which is out of my expectation. I like the casual loose cut of hoodie; best pair with leggings."
