$8 at Amazon

The fan favorite is on sale for as little as $8 — a massive 65% off — so if you're in the market for a multiseason staple at a terrific price, your search is over. Black and white have the steepest discount, but this sweatshirt comes in seven other colors, and most are still around $10 or under.

The Hanes EcoSmart Crewneck Sweatshirt is a modern-day upgrade to your never-goes-out-of-style sweatshirt, with its ribbed hem and cuffs and classic V-shaped stitch at the neck. There's nothing easier to pair with jeans or joggers than a shirt like this, and since it's mid-weight, it's a great piece to throw on over a T-shirt or tank top too.

It's also incredibly soft — another reason shoppers are smitten. For that reason, you might be surprised to learn that this gem isn't just another cotton blend: It contains polyester made from recycled plastic bottles. And it's fitted enough to look streamlined but loose enough that you'll never feel self-conscious — the sweet spot we're always on the hunt for.

More than 41,000 Amazon shoppers give this classic sweatshirt a five-star rating. A number of them say that the fit and material are far better than you'd expect for the price.

Pros 👍

"I love this sweatshirt! It is so soft and a great fit," said one shopper. "The quality is superb and comparable to more expensive brands. It is very comfortable and I will buy a few more in different colors. Highly recommend!"

"I have four of these shirts and I love them," wrote a loyal customer. "They are not a heavyweight sweatshirt, but perfect for cool spring/summer mornings or evenings ... I especially like the cool, crisp white one I own. You can't go wrong at this price point."

"So soft and cozy!" said another reviewer. "I bought this sweatshirt in three colors. I will definitely buy more. The durability is incredible, and absolutely no pills after several washes."

"I ordered two of these in large: purple and navy," said a fourth fan. "Both have been washed twice, and there has been no shrinkage or color loss. ... These are medium weight, and when it's cold, I can wear a blouse or T-shirt [underneath] them."

Cons 👎

Some shoppers recommend sizing up, saying they find the sleeves a bit slim-fitting.

"Typical sweatshirt, but washes nicely and is a good weight for indoor use," said one buyer. "Lower sleeves are a bit tight, but that's the only drawback to them."

"I'd give this five stars if the sleeve openings weren’t so tight," said a final shopper. "I love to pull my sweater sleeves up to my elbows when it gets warm. That's not possible with this shirt. Other than that, it's perfect."

It's hard to buy anything for $8 these days, let alone a wardrobe workhorse like this one.
