    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 38 colors).

    2. Sherpa-lined sweats to make your legs feel as if they're being enveloped by a large, fluffy bathrobe. If you're dreading the winter and are perpetually cold (#me), then these babies are great — bonus points for a tapered leg that sets these apart from your oversized pajama bottoms.

    reviewer wearing the green sweater dress

    Promising review: "This is WAY BETTER than I thought it would be when I purchased it. First of all the size is perfect! Its absolutely an oversized sweater, and the material is great and I personally love the pockets! I wore with some simple leggings and was just in heaven at how comfortable I was. Anyways y'all BUY THIS SWEATER!" —Kristen Saunders

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 13 colors).

    4. A linen jumpsuit designed with an adjustable tie-waist and snazzy pockets — the latter of which is great for ensuring that your cell phone remain neatly nestled beside you (no more disappearing between couch cushions and under pillows because omg, that frustration).,

    Promising review: "If you’re thinking about buying this, DO IT. It fits really comfortably. Just enough room in the hips to sit and chase after my daughter without feeling like I’m going to tear a seam (this isn’t a super stretchy fabric). The tie around the front is just long enough and is perfect for accentuating the waist." —J&R Miller

    Get it from Amazon for $25.49+ (available in sizes S-XL and in four colors).

    5. A cable-knit two-piece set that will make re-watching The Vampire Diaries for the 90th time this year feel like, well, a luxurious experience. Matching loungewear = a foolproof way to feel fancy.,

    Promising review: "I love this outfit! It's beautiful and perfect for all weather. It's warm and hasn't fallen apart on me even though it's made of yarn. I would suggest this set to anyone." —Dominique

    6. A ribbed V-neck top practically *begging* to be worn with high-waisted leggings thanks to its cropped silhouette. Looking très chic and exerting no effort to get there!? A dream, honestly.

    reviewer wearing the taupe top

    Promising review: "My newest favorite top! Its flattering and it feels really cozy! The material is soft and lightweight but not sheer. The color and fit is perfect for fall, and for lounging around the house in winter." —Rain

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in six colors).

    7. A fuzzy sweater lauded by reviewers for being ridiculously cozy and soft. For a more chic version of your favorite fleece pajama top, *this* is just the ticket you've been scouring the internet for.,

    Promising review: "I am obsessed with this sweater. I’ve had it for two weeks and I’ve worn it almost every day. True to size, fuzzy and warm, doesn’t shed at all. Long enough to wear with leggings! I would recommend washing separately, as any lint or fuzz will stick. Bought it in black for now, but will be coming back to buy in every color!" —Megan Lynch

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 18 colors).

    8. Ultra soft pajama pants featuring a snazzy leopard print to take your loungewear game from "old high school gym shorts" to "Andy Sachs raids the fashion closet."

    model wearing leopard print bottoms

    Get them from Target for $17.99 (available in sizes 1X-4X).

    9. An activewear set because we all know that chic activewear = the best motivation when it comes to actually clocking in some at-home yoga. This set includes a racerback top *and* seamless, high-waisted leggings.

    Promising review: "I really love wearing this set to the gym. The color is great, the material is thick, and overall it's just really comfortable. The fabric as I mentioned is pretty thick though so the outfit will compress everything pretty good. If you are between sizes or you aren't a fan of tight clothing, definitely size up!" —J_Thill

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes S-L and in eight colors).

    10. High-waisted joggers so lovely, you'll want to stuff your Ikea dresser with every available hue. They're slightly oversized which makes 'em perfect for lounging, but the elastic waist and tapered ankles mean you won't feel embarrassed to wear these whilst food shopping.

    Promising review: "The material of these sweatpants are super soft and high quality. They have pockets which I love. I am truly impressed with the quality and how comfortable they are. Highly recommend these. I will be ordering in black too!" —Jill K. Johnson

    Get them from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and 17 colors/prints).

    11. A cutout tee, because this is equally as comfortable as your favorite sleeved basic but *le gasp* about 10x more trendy. Who should start a style blog? You.

    reviewer wearing the black sleeved top

    Promising review: "Simple yet sexy off-the-shoulder black blouse. The shirt is true to size(I purchased a small) with extremely soft fabric. Definitely recommend air drying this one after a wash." —Saint Kaid

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes XS-3X and in six colors).

    12. A chunky knit cardigan perfect for adding warmth to any 'fit. This basic layer has batwing sleeves, pockets, and comes in a few colors (including lots of neutral hues that won't ever clash).

    reviewer wearing the cream cardigan

    Promising review: "I love this sweater. It’s a true sweater so it’s thicker than a light cardigan. It has an oversized fit with a drop sleeve and POCKETS! This will be so cute for the fall, winter or spring." —Busy Mom

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and 19 colors/prints).

    13. High-rise leggings, aka the new bread and butter of your WFH wardrobe. These babies are perfection in every way: mesh panels mean moisture will be wicked away faster than you can say "I'm sweating" and the wide elastic band ensures no slippage.


    Get them from Nike for $50 (available in sizes XS-3X).

    14. A knee-length cardigan coat you'll regret not having purchased, like, ten years ago. This is perfection in outerwear form: chic, warm, cozy, and can be layered over fancy and casual outfits alike.,

    Promising review "GUYS, OMG this jacket is definitely a hidden gem. It's so soft and makes you look so sophisticated!! It does shed a little at first, so definitely wash this before you wear it unless you want little specks all over your clothes, I learned the hard way LOL. However, I wore this outfit pictured in 50-degree weather and it kept me warm! This is definitely one of those 'blanket-but-make-it-fashion' pieces HAHA. I love it so much." —@Kathy_Vu

    Get it from Amazon for $44.99 (available in sizes XS-3XL and 10 colors).

    15. Knit rib lounge pants with all the comfort of your favorite sweats, but these babies have the whole trendier-than-thou factor going for them. Heading out for a quick errand? Throw on a fedora and you'll look like you've just stepped off a fashion inspo Pinterest board., Amazon

    Promising review: "This cozy pants are amazing. Not too heavy, very soft, and I love the green color. These days with COVID I’m always looking for comfy yet stylish lounge wear and these are perfect!" —Kalyn

    Get them from Amazon for $29.50 (available in sizes XS-XXL and in five colors).

    16. A cozy fleece crop tank that calls for a movie marathon, like, yesterday. Picture it: popcorn bowl in hand, all 1,009 hours of Harry Potter playing consecutively, snuggled under a blanket, wearing this top. Wow.

    model wearing the cream top
    White Fox Boutique

    Get it from White Fox Boutique for $24.99 (available in sizes S-XL and in three colors; get the matching bottoms here and long cardigan here).

    Get it from Amazon for $29.39+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 15 colors).

    Get it from Nordstrom for $41.40 (originally $69, available in sizes 1X-3X and in six colors).

    19. A fleece hoodie dress that I intend on buying/hibernating in all winter long. 🎶 So long, farewell, gotta add this to my Amazon cart. 🎶,

    Promising review: "This dress is very comfortable and cozy for the winter. I am tall and plus size. It falls halfway down my calves. It’s very thick and nicely made. I just throw it on to run errands and look cute while doing it. It’s as comfy as a pair of sweatpants but way more stylish. I love it and will be buying other colors." —Theresa Casanova

    Get it from Amazon for $37.99 (available in sizes S-3X and in 10 colors).

    20. A splurge-worthy mid-length jacket with some snazzy features: a plush inner for tons of warmth, a storm flap for ventilation (yeehaw to no more trapped sweat), plus a hidden waist bungee for some subtle waist accentuation.

    model wearing the black jacket

    Get it from Athleta for $149 (available in sizes XXS-XL and in two colors).

    21. Fleece-lined leggings described by one reviewer as a magical furry leg dream and wow, what a compliment. These babies will keep you warm in freezing temperatures best described as "I can see my breath."


    Promising review: "The reviewer who says 'it's like wearing kittens on your legs' is spot on. Kittens, small teddy bears, whatever you want to call it — these leggings aren't lined with fleece — it's low-pile, stretchy faux fur. But you don't look like you gained 20 lbs. when you wear them. I went out to a concert on a miserably cold and windy February evening, with these leggings under a skirt. I'm terribly cold-blooded, and even I felt like, 'COME ON, WIND, BRING IT ON.' There's one potential negative: the seams around the crotch and butt are obvious. " —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $11.99 (available in 16 colors and sets).

    22. A belted sweater dress because the weather outside is frightful, and what better way to celebrate the sun disappearing by 5 p.m. than by wearing this cozy-yet-also-dressy piece?,

    Promising review: "This dress is perfect! It fits like a glove and the tie really emphasizes your waist. It’s snug but in a perfect way. I bought this as an option for a holiday party and although I chose a different outfit, I still decided to keep this over returning it because it’s so cute and flattering! Also the color and material are great for year round wear. I want more!" —Anonymous

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in sizes S-XL and in 18 colors).

    23. A sleeved jumpsuit that has "comfortable chic" down to a science. Forget the headache that comes from matching a top with a bottom: simply slip this on instead.,

    Promising review: "This is amazing and fits like a glove. I wore this on a 16-hour straight flight from Houston to China and it was soooo comfortable! I have zero complaints." —Asia Q

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 11 colors).

    24. High-waisted lounge pants crafted from a plush-knit material that is *chef's kiss*. World, it's about time we acknowledge that the little black dress is overrated — it's the little black sweatpants that truly matter and that's that.

    model wearing the joggers
    Old Navy

    Get it from Old Navy for $42.99 (available in sizes 1X-4X and in four colors).

    Promising review: "This is a magical top. I love it! The material is very stretchy and comfortable, slouchy yet fitted, and I love that the buttons give it a little something extra." —Kersten

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes 4-18 and in six colors).

    26. A chunky turtleneck sweater that can be worn with jeans, leggings, sneakers, heeled boots — the world is your fashionable oyster with this trusty top.

    reviewer wearing the orange sweater

    Promising review: "I am OBSESSED with this sweater. It looks like the same one currently in stores by other major fashion retailers for a fraction of the price. It is soft, flattering, and cozy! I literally want one in every color. The only thing I'll say is it fit slightly small, so maybe order a size up depending on how you want it to fit." —Madeline

    Get it from Amazon for $25.88+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 17 colors).

    27. A two-piece outfit – it's basically a gazillion options in one: wear this as a matching ensemble, throw on the sweater with workout leggings, pair the bottoms with your favorite band tee, and the list goes on.,

    Promising review: "I'm always kind of nervous to order clothes online because how never know what you're going to get. The fit, color, and fabric may be all wrong. I thought this was so cute though, so I thought I'd give it a shot and it didn't disappoint. I got the dark green color which is so pretty, plus it's so soft and comfortable. I may order more in different colors because it's so cozy." —Debi

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in sizes S-3XL and in 18 colors).

    28. High-waisted straight-leg jeans for a silhouette that is not *pinches into your ankle bone*. If you're looking for a more comfortable alternative to the skinny denim that has permeated your wardrobe, look no further than these cropped beauties.


    Get it from Nordstrom for $37.50 (originally $75, available in sizes 24-34 and in petite and regular lengths).

    29. A velvet dress so luxe, it'll look like you just spent the entirety of several paychecks on this one designer item, but surprise! You didn't. This gorgeous number is surprisingly way more affordable than anyone would assume (and the stretch fabric is extremely comfortable to boot).

    reviewer wearing the blue V-neck dress

    Promising review: "I am RARELY able to buy something online two days before an event, throw it on, wear no shapers under it, and go. But. This. Dress. Is. Different. I love it so much! I wish I had more holiday parties to go to so I could own it in every color! I’m a solid 18, this hugged every curve, was flattering, and was nicely lined. I don't have an hourglass figure, but this made me feel like Jessica Rabbit." —sheeshbri

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in sizes 14-24 and in 15 colors).

    30. A turtleneck sweater for people who want warmth but hate the bulk that comes with scarves — ding ding ding, you've got yourself a no-frills winner.


    Get it from Backcountry for $55.96 (originally $79.95, available in sizes XS-XL and in three colors).

    31. A fleece hoodie that is just 👏 plain 👏 good 👏 . Think classic kangaroo pockets, a brushed interior that feels like non-greasy butter, and a length that hits right around the hip bone.

    model wearing gray hoodie
    Under Armour

    Get it from Under Armour for $44.99 (available in sizes XS-XXL, 14 colors, and in regular and tall lengths).

    32. Pull-on Levi Strauss jeans – they look like your typical hunk of denim, but you've been duped! These are just as comfortable as your favorite leggings but look about a trillion times more put-together.,

    Promising review: "I never write reviews, but these are easily the best jeans I have ever owned in my life and I had to share!!! They fit perfectly in every way to the point where I can't believe these aren't custom made for me. They are incredibly comfortable without sacrificing the look of real jeans and the tummy panel is FANTASTIC. On top of all of that, these are more comfortable than my leggings. I'm in love with these pants and will be purchasing the rest of the colors to replace every other pair of jeans I own." —Anonymous

    Get them from Amazon for $22.97+ (available in sizes 2-20 and in short, regular, and tall lengths and five colors).

    33. A sweater dress that is, and I cannot stress this enough, all I want to wear this winter. That cozy fabric! That twist back! Excuse me whilst I drool.

    model wearing the dress

    Get it from Aerie for $38.97 (originally $64.95, available in sizes XXS-XXL and in three colors).

    34. A two-piece set I intend on wearing to my next weekly team meeting. IDC if my editor will only be able to see me from the waist up! The heart wants what it wants! Plus, an important factor: you’ll be able to mix and match both pieces with pretty much anything you own.,

    An FYI that these ~pants~ have an elastic waist, aka no button uncomfortably digging into your abdomen!

    Promising review: "This was so cute! It can be dressed up for business or worn separately and dressed down, plus it's super comfortable." —Lucy

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99+ (available in sizes XS-L and in six colors).

    35. A velvety pajama set here to nudge your high school gym shorts and old soccer team T-shirt into retirement. You hated soccer. You sat on the bench. This is luxury and comfort wrapped into one wearable entity.

    A reviewer in the green velvet tank and shorts set with black lace

    Promising review: "I was super nervous about purchasing, because I know pictures can sometimes be deceiving. It looks just like the photo, so glad I bought it! Wasn’t sure if medium would fit me, but you can wear the bottoms high rise (no adjustable pull strings) and the top has adjustable straps. Overall, cutest pajama set I’ve ever seen, satisfied and will definitely be purchasing more in the future." —Luna Contreras

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and five colors).

    36. A tiered dress with so many ‘fit possibilities that my head is spinning! Rest assured that regardless if you wear this with OTK boots or white sneakers, this loose-fitting bebe is comfy, comfy, comfy.,

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this dress — so much so that I bought it in three different colors. It’s so comfortable and the length and flow is perfect. If you want more length and/or are between sizes, I’d recommend sizing up." —Taylor

    Get it from Amazon for $24.98+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 33 colors).

    37. A ribbed knit pencil skirt — the free gift with purchase here being immediate Instagram fame. This is far too trendy to be worn without photographic proof tbqh.

    reviewer wearing the orange midi skirt

    Promising review: "Love the fit of this skirt! Material is soft and stretchy and the ribbed pattern is very flattering. The color is beautiful as well." —Amylia

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes XS-L and in 21 colors).

    38. Gingham leggings that are pants and I said what I said — the benefit of said pants being, of course, that these are supremely more comfortable than any of the denim residing in your Ikea drawers.

    Promising review: "I really like these. They are so comfortable and stretchy, but look professional. They are the perfect high-waisted look I wanted for work! I ended up ordering another pair in a different color and love those as well!" —Melodie

    Get them from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 45 colors).

    39. An oversized faux shearling jacket so soft, you'll basically feel as if you're wearing a combination of your favorite blanket and most cuddly teddy bear. Comfortable + super on-trend + much more affordable than your typical piece of outerwear = bliss.,

    Promising review: "I love this jacket! I wasn't sure how the quality was going to turn out, but it's super soft and exactly what I wanted. I got a small and it fits in the oversized way that I wanted/expected. Plus, it's sooo warm!" —Amazon Customer

    40. A knit sweater dress about to become the official go-to article of clothing when you don't know what else to wear during the holiday season (even if celebrations are taking place via Zoom this year).
