Comfortable clothing is high on our priority list - especially this past year, and it is an added bonus if it is suitable to wear outside of the home, too.

Marks and Spencer has a wide range of leisurewear to buy, whether you are looking for cosy outfits when working from home, for lounging around the house on a weekend, or Sunday strolls - M&S has something for everyone.

There is one item in particular that is high on our radar, and we predict it will sell out fast. Introducing the Cotton Funnel Neck Half Zip Sweatshirt.

Why we rate it

The Cotton Funnel Neck Half Zip Sweatshirt ticks all the boxes, and is slightly more trendy than a classic sweatshirt.

This design boasts a relaxed fit, dropped raglan shoulders, as well as ribbed neck, cuffs and hem.

What we love is the funnel neck, which has a half-zip fastening, as it provides a little extra warmth around the wearer’s neck.

The sweatshirt is made from a cotton and polyester mix, which means it is soft to the touch as well as insulating.

This design is available in grey and pink, and available in dress sizes 6 to 24, although the pink version is selling out fast.

What the reviews say

The Cotton Funnel Neck Half Zip Sweatshirt has received over 130 glowing reviews from customers, and we think it is proof enough this is a wardrobe staple as the pink version has almost sold out. Although shoppers have noted to size down as they are slightly oversized.

Here’s what the reviews say:

  • “Lovely soft colour and fabric. Traditional fleecy inside too.”

  • “Been wearing this all week it's so comfy and warm.”

  • “Cotton Sweatshirt perfect for current lounging Covid lockins.”

  • “This is perfect for around the house/casual wear. Very comfortable, warm and soft to the touch.”

  • “This a very nice top for casual wear, which I was looking for.”

  • “Loved the colour and style . The length was good. Must be at least 66cm for me. Would love it in other colours like lilac and pale blue for Spring.”

  • “Sweat top, fleece inside so cosy and snug, would have liked the sleeves a little longer for my long arms, but otherwise very happy with my new comfy top. It's quite loose fitting and roomy in the arms but that's what I wanted.”
