Part sport and part street, the sweatshirt is an icon of youth culture that has, in the past year, reached critical mass when emblazoned with rottweilers, science-fiction motifs, and logo wordplay. And that is totally okay. It’s a piece of clothing that evokes heritage, nostalgia, childhood, and the weekend, especially since a brand-new sweatshirt can feel like pulling on a warm hug. For instant comfort, try on Gap’s cotton, raglan-sleeve pullover. In various faded highlighter colors, it comes prewashed to make it look as if you’ve had it forever.
