Best lululemon Sweatshirts and Jackets

lululemon Define Jacket

Best Athletic Jacket: SHOP DEFINE JACKET

Size Notes: This jacket runs small and we suggest ordering a size up. The classic define jacket feels a little more compressive than the more relaxed Nulu hooded version, but we suggest ordering a size up in both fits (Lindsey and Rachel order a size 8 and Megan a size 10 in this jacket).

The viral lululemon jacket loved by reviewers for giving you an hourglass shape. We love this jacket because it’s soft, breathable and surprisingly warm for chilly fall days. It’s the perfect balance between comfortable and supportive.

This jacket is designed for running/walking, yoga and everyday wear.

Main Features:

  • Soft, lightweight fabric
  • Sweat-wicking and quick-drying
  • Contoured fit that stretches and moves with you

💜 NML TEAM FAVORITE: We love the classic version for a super flattering fit and the hooded version for a more relaxed look.

lululemon Perfectly Oversized Cropped Crew

Best Classic Crew Sweatshirt: SHOP OVERSIZED CREW

Size Notes: Runs big, Lindsey sized down to a size 4 for a more fitted look.

Lindsey grabbed this sweatshirt last year to wear through pregnancy and postpartum and hasn’t taken it off since. This crew is oversized (AKA super comfy) but cropped to hit right at the hips (AKA, not so big that you drown in it). 

This cozy crew also comes in an extra-roomy full-length version (the long length keeps the bum and hips covered). 

Main Features:

  • Super soft peach-fuzz texture, feels smooth next to skin
  • Four-way stretch
  • Machine washable

lululemon Scuba Zip Ups

Best Zip-Up Sweatshirt: SHOP SCUBA ZIP-UPS

Size Notes: The Scuba sweatshirts come in XS/S, M/L and XL/XXL. Lindsey and Rachel ordered XS/S for a more fitted look and Megan ordered a M/L for a more oversized fit.

The Scuba Sweatshirts sell out SO fast 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. It keeps you cozy, while still being lightweight and breathable.


  • Soft, cotton blend fabric
  • Oversized fit that hits at the hips

It’s not too long (or too short), and has the perfect relaxed fit for layering over sweaters and sweatshirts. This jacket does a great job of blocking the wind and rain without being heavy or stiff. This is a great jacket for hiking and running errands alike.

We also love that the hood can be zipped in to the collar of the jacket when you aren’t using it.

  • Hem cinch for customized fit
