One of the most viral products of the year was the lululemon Define Jacket. It’s internet-famous (and with good reason), but not the only lululemon jacket worth investing in.
Today’s post is a complete shopping guide of the best lululemon jackets and sweatshirts for fall, with a size and fit guide on real bodies.
Our team is based in Minnesota, which means we take our outerwear and layering pieces pretty seriously. These are our favorite transitional pieces for fall and into winter (and they would be great for spring as well).
Whether you’re looking for the perfect cozy sweatshirt for fall, or want a versatile athletic jacket that can take you from outdoor runs to yoga class; you’ll find the best lululemon sweatshirts and jackets below.
A few reasons why we love shopping lululemon include:
The Define Jacket is the most popular lululemon jacket. This jacket has been one of lululemon’s top rated products for years, and continues to be a popular choice. lululemon has made some modern updates to the classic define jacket, including coming out with a hooded version and a cropped version.
The classic Define Jacket has been dubbed the “BBL” or “Brazilian Butt Lift” jacket by reviewers on TikTok because of its flattering silhouette. The jacket went viral earlier this year for being extremely flattering – we love it for running errands or throwing on after a workout.
The Scuba Half-Zip Hoodie is one of the most popular lululemon items. It’s the perfect transitional piece for moving into fall and winter because it is warm without being bulky and is easy to layer.
Best For: lightweight warmth and cozy work-from-home layering.
Our entire team owns a variation of this sweatshirt. It truly is the perfect “oversized” fit – cozy, without being too boxy.
The Scuba Sweatshirts quickly sell out whenever a new color is launched. They’re classics for a reason, and their popularity isn’t going away anytime soon.
These sweatshirts are designed for lightweight warmth. Naturally breathable cotton-blend fleece keeps you cozy, without being too heavy or bulky.
Sizing Notes: The Scuba sweatshirts come in XS/S, M/L and XL/XXL. Megan is pictured wearing the Half Zip Scuba Hoodie in size M/L. Size up if you prefer an oversized fit, or stick with your typical size for a more fitted look.
Best For: ultimate softness. The best lounging sweatshirt.
Super soft, peach-fuzz like fabric makes this sweatshirt one of the comfiest items in our closet.
Lindsey grabbed this sweatshirt last year to wear through pregnancy and postpartum and hasn’t taken it off since. This crew is slightly oversized, but cropped to hit right at the hips.
One thing to note is that water marks do show up on some of the lighter colors. It comes out clean in the wash, but we recommend going with one of the darker fabrics to avoid the issue of water stains.
Sizing Notes: Caroline is pictured wearing the Ribbed Softstreme Perfectly Oversized Cropped Crew in a size 4 (her typical top size). We recommend sizing up for a more oversized fit.
Best For: everything from running errands to outdoor runs. Our favorite athletic jacket!
The viral lululemon jacket is loved by reviewers for its flattering shape. The Define Jacket is soft, breathable and surprisingly warm given that the fabric is relatively thin. This also makes it perfect for layering.
Sizing Notes: This jacket runs small, and we recommend ordering a size up. Lindsey is pictured wearing the Nulu Hooded Define Jacket in a size 8 (one size up from her typical top size).
Best For: everyday wear. Easily dressed up or dressed down.
Water-repellent and wind-proof on the outside, but super soft on the inside. This is a true “best of both worlds” kind of jacket.
It’s lightweight and versatile, featuring a stowable hood you can zip in or out depending on weather conditions.
The Always Effortless Jacket has so many pockets – perfect for stashing a phone or wallet during travel days.
Sizing Notes: This lululemon jacket runs true to size. Rachel is pictured wearing the Always Effortless Jacket in a size 6 (her typical top size).
Best For: lightweight warmth for runners or power walkers (and a great layering piece).
If you’re a dedicated runner or walker no matter the weather conditions, this vest is for you.
Our favorite feature is that this vest is actually double-layered. You have the option to zip the inner down layer out or in depending on how much warmth you want.
The fabric of this vest is amazing – it’s water-repellent, and the lightweight insulation is warm, even when wet.
Sizing Notes: This vest runs true to size. Lindsey is pictured wearing the Another Mile Vest in a size 6 (her typical top size).
Best For: the ultimate travel jacket: lightweight, water-repellent and super packable.
Megan swears by this jacket as a lightweight layering piece for dog walking, rain or shine.
This jacket is perfect for hiking as well. It conveniently packs into its own pocket so you can hook it onto your backpack or belt bag if you get warm and want to take it off.
Sizing Notes: This jacket runs true to size, but we recommend sizing up if you’re layering it. Megan is pictured wearing the Mist Over Windbreaker in a size 10 (one size up from her typical size).
