    2. A teddy coat to keep you nice 'n' toasty while also looking super stylish. Win-win!


    My best friend and I both picked up this coat three years ago and have already discussed how excited we are wait to break them out again now that the weather is slowly getting colder. It makes me feel like I'm being enveloped in a warm hug — and who doesn't want that?

    Promising review: "This jacket is so soft and warm, and the big pockets are a plus. Like other reviewers, order a size up so you can comfortably layer under and zip up. I usually wear a small but got a medium and it’s perfect! Super cute, I’ll probably buy another in a different color LOL." —Brianna

    I splurged on these two years ago. I don't know why I waited so long! They're super soft on the inside, edgy on the outside, and just freakin' fabulous. If I venture to any family gatherings this holiday season you better believe you'll find me in these bad boys. I love pairing them with an oversized sweater for a look that's stylish but still cozy.

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $9.99.

    Get it from Boohoo for $12 (originally $30; available in sizes S–L and five colors).

    6. A casual knit sweater so you can literally wear your heart on your sleeve.


    Promising review: "I absolutely love this sweater!! I think it's probably my favorite piece I have purchased the last few months. I wanted to have a bit of a baggy look and be able to wear this with leggings or a pair of jeans so I ordered a large. I just ordered another one in red and can't wait for it to get here. The material is really warm and comfy, not scratchy like I thought it would be." —Nicole Julum

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and five colors).

    7. Opaque leggings you'll find yourself gravitating to every day as they'll easily go with pretty much all of your cold weather wardrobe. Sweatshirts? Yep. Sweaters? Sure! Jackets? Also, a yes.


    I have these leggings and can confirm they are soft, not too thick, and are not at all see through. In fact, the only thing I asked for a few Christmases ago was three pairs of these leggings — and urged my mom to get them for my sisters as well. I'm a big fan!

    Promising review: "Wow! I was extremely skeptical of these leggings considering they’re a 'one size fits all' type of deal. I am 5-foot-5 and curvier. I was worried they were going to be too tight or see-through. However, that’s not the case! They are not see-through even after three washes so far. They are extremely soft and comfortable. The only thing I noticed is they are more of a muted black compared to some of my other leggings but it’s barely noticeable. I liked them so much I ordered a second pair. Def would recommend!" —nichole campton

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in one size and plus size and in 22 colors).

    8. Tie-dye sweatpants you'll be happy you purchased instead of trying to DIY on your own and accidentally staining your hands (or bath tub) for at least week.

    I have these tie-dye sweats and have actually been *living* in them — they're so cute! I can assure you the quality of the items from here are fantastic and will fulfill all of your tie-dye trend dreams ;). BFFS and Babes is a woman-owned small business that sells customized apparel.

    Get them from BFFS and Babes on Etsy for $79 (available in sizes XS–XL).

Please don't ask me, it's borderline embarrassing.

    Get it from My Oh My Supply Co for $30 (available in unisex sizes S–2XL).

    10. An off-the-shoulder waffle knit top, perfect for both running errands or a casual lunch with a friend you haven't seen in a minute.,

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this shirt! It's very trendy and flattering yet affordable — similar to some tops I get from local boutiques. I wore it with distressed jeans out for a casual dinner with friends and received several compliments! I'm not usually a fan of this color but I love it! I will be getting another one in army green soon." —Smalave76

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 12 colors).

    11. UGG's classic ultra mini bootie to keep your feet feeling pampered all day long — they deserve it!

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, ugg / Via

    I got these Ugg minis last year and have been wearing them as my "work shoes" now that I WFH full time. They're the perfect mix between a slipper and an actual shoe, so I can continue to wear my comfiest clothes to "the office" but also feel like I've somewhat transitioned into work mode for the day. They're super soft, as all Uggs are, and honestly just make me happy! They are true-to-size so no worries about sizing up or down.

    Promising review: "These are the first pair of Uggs I have ever purchased, and they do not disappoint! I am short (5'0") so the taller classic Uggs have always felt a little awkward or bulky for me. The ultra mini is just what I've been looking for, and I've been wearing them daily (even though it's still hot out). I'm considering a second purchase! Definitely worth every penny!" —Lexi T.

    Get them from Zappos for $139.95 (available in sizes 5–12 and four colors).

    12. A sherpa sweater, so soft you'll want to buy 10, cut 'em all up, and make a blanket out of them. But, like, don't do that.

    a reviewer in the sweater in light gray

    Promising review: "I love this sweater so much that I purchased the gray and pink colors! I will be purchasing every color in this sweater. They’re amazing and I find any excuse to wear them. The sweater is baggy for the days you’re not feeling 100 or it looks super cute partially tucked into your jeans. 100% comfortable and if comfortable is your style, this is YOUR sweater!" —Alicia

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 18 colors)

    13. A fuzzy pullover for those chilly fall mornings when you typically find yourself running to the store to stock up on chips and soda before settling in on the couch to watch football all day.

    a model in a fuzzy half-zip brown

    I've purchased *a lot* of Skims products in the past and they never disappoint. The materials are always top-notch and super soft and I can't imagine this teddy sweatshirt would be any different. My only advice would be to size up!

    Get it from Skims for $78 (available in women's sizes 2XS–XL, 2X–4X, and five colors).

    14. A blanket scarf for anyone who is *always* cold, you know the type ;).

    Amazon, Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    I have one of these scarves and love wrapping it around myself on cold days for an extra layer of warmth *and* an added touch of style. They usually contain a whole bunch of colors in it so a single scarf coordinates nicely with an array of my outfits.

    Promising review: "This is a lot nicer than I thought it would be: it's really really soft and because it's so big, it's warm too if you wrap it around your neck a few times. It's also really versatile: the first time I wore it I ended up using it as a blanket. I wear it nearly every day and have gotten a lot of compliments on it. I might get another one (or two). Love this thing." —madison

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in 40 styles).

    15. A Carhartt beanie you can throw on in a hurry to assure you still look casual and cute when your friends decide last minute (as per usual) TODAY is the day they want to indulge in some outdoor seasonal activities.,

    Promising review: "WOW! I did NOT expect to like this item so much!! I have never been someone who could ever pull off a beanie, or so I thought ... until I found this hat! I hated all beanies of this style because of that 'alien head' look they give you, but this one DOESN'T! (since you can fold the hat to your desired thickness). I am buying one in every color!! If you're hesitant like I was — DON'T BE! This hat is so comfy this time of year!!" —kellymfxo

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in 35 styles).

    16. Or a similar hat from Love Your Melon that'll keep your hair in check and make you feel like a good human since 50% of their profits are given to the Love Your Melon fund to support the fight against pediatric cancer.

    loveyourmelon / Via, loveyourmelon / Via

    I have quite a few of these hats and, NO JOKE, they are the softest things I've ever put on my head. Stylish, comfy, and a chill slouchy fit? You'll find me wearing one of these all winter long. I have the gray one (pictured above) and two of their Disney ones, but the greatest of them all is the Baby Yoda beanie. It's available for pre-order right now so you best move quickly to ensure you get one! While I'm at it I might as well also mention how soft their blankets are — it's my sister's most cherished possession.

    Get them from Love Your Melon: the grey beanie $35 (available in multiple colors and in adult and child sizes) and the Disney Princess Collection starting at $35+.

    17. An elegant sweater you'll feel like a genie granted you with thanks to its lantern sleeves and various special detailing.


    Promising review: "My new favorite sweater. Incredibly soft. Super cute design. Love the sleeve detail. I received so many compliments on this sweater. Fits exactly as expected." —Triple Blessed

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes 4–16 and 10 colors).

    18. A chunky knit turtleneck you'll totally be able to get away with wearing to your family's annual holiday card photo shoot. You're welcome!,

    Promising review: "I've been searching for a black, chunky knit turtleneck sweater. I usually don't order clothes from Amazon but took the risk based on the other positive reviews. This fit the bill 100%! It is exactly as shown — a bit oversized, which is the style, but not completely without shape. It looks great tucked into jeans or with leggings. The neck lays nice and the fabric is warm and soft. I would definitely recommend this sweater and would reorder!" —Jacqueline

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 36 styles).

    19. An open-front cardigan with pockets (!!!) so you can adorably shove your hands into 'em and pretend you're shy for a posed Insta pic., Amazon

    Promising review: "So soft and comfortable!! Fits really big though. I got an extra large, which is my normal size but definitely could’ve gone with a large. I would suggest sizing down. I love oversized sweaters though! It’s 100% acrylic so it doesn’t shrink, which is nice. It’s also super soft without being scratchy. I love the cable-knit design! It’s washed really well and I want it in all the other colors now!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $37.98+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 10 colors).

    20. Pull-on joggers that'll feel so soft against your skin you'll probably never want to take them off — luckily right now you don't have to!,

    Promising review: "Imagine microfiber, how it's light and has a smooth texture. Then imagine if microfiber and velvet had a baby. This is that baby! It's light and smooth like microfiber, but also has some of the warmth and texture (not *quite* fuzzy, but holds warmth still). VERY comparable to suede. Super super comfy, almost like you're wearing pajamas, these are the ultimate lounging sweats!" —Sabrina

    Get them from Amazon for $8.31+ (available in sizes S–XL, 1X–3X and 120 styles).

    21. A oversized open-front sweater you can layer over your favorite graphic tee and therefore extend a chunk of your summer wardrobe through the winter. Huge win for your closet!

    22. A leopard print pullover you'll want to add to your ever-growing sweater collection right ~meow~.,

    Promising review: "I purchased a medium in the tie-dye blue and white set. The pants fit very nicely, and the shirt also fits great. Both pieces also mix and match with other items in my closet easily. The quality of the fabric is GREAT! I was very surprised to see the inside of the set has a nice soft lining, and the outside is very good soft fabric." —Emerson and Amy

    Get them from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 17 styles).

    Psst: This item is included in Prime Wardrobe, so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

    24. A chic sweater starring an asymmetrical hem, long enough to cover your booty so you can wear your leggings without hearing "those are NOT pants, I can see your whole butt!"


    Promising review: "Ordered a small in the white version of this sweater and holy cow! I intend to buy this in black as well, so impressed. This sweater is incredibly soft and stretchy and comfortable. It does run slightly large in my opinion, however, I wouldn't order a size down. This has been washed several times since I ordered it and I am impressed with how it's held up. 10/10 would recommend to a friend! Great value for the money spent." —Elizabeth

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 27 styles).

    Psst: This item is included in Prime Wardrobe, so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

    25. Fuzzy slippers to stylishly keep your tootsies warm — these babies are water resistant so you can totally also wear 'em on a quick trip to the grocery store to grab extra snacks for your snuggly night in.


    My mom is a slipper fanatic and Dearfoams have always been her go-to. We've literally been buying her them for as far back as I can remember — and I've finally figured out why! They are *so* soft and cozy in addition to be affordable. What more could you (and your toes) wish for?

    Promising review: "I wanted to replace old slippers since I'm wearing them much more while working from home, and I'm so glad I settled on these! I've hardly taken them off in the several days since they arrived. They're perfectly cozy and keep my feet warm without being too hot on more mild-temperature days. They look great, too; I love the tan suede look. The soles are solid enough there's some support, and I can run outside to the mailbox or trash can in them. But they're not super bulky, so they're still comfy to wear around inside all day." —Tigs1781

    Get them from Amazon for $49.94+ (available in women's sizes 6–11, in regular and wide widths, and six colors).

    Psst: This item is included in Prime Wardrobe, so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

    a model in a peach colored half zip sweatshirt

    Promising review: "It’s such a high end feeling material. It’s heavy but not sweaty. It feels like wearing a weighted blanket. Very calming. The acorn leaf color is beautiful. I checked back recently and they added more colors so I’m definitely ordering more. It’s worth the money, IMO." —Aubs

    Get it from Aerie for $64.95 (available in sizes 2XS–2XL and five colors).

    27. A fuzzy V-neck popcorn sweater you'll find yourself as infatuated with as the smell of the freshly popped snack.,

    Promising review: "This is my favorite new sweater! The quality is amazing! It's super soft and the color is a pretty taupe that goes well with everything. It's definitely oversized, so order your normal size. I love the detail on the sleeves and the length is great. I'm tempted to buy the other colors now!" —Laura Chaffee

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 15 colors).

    28. A pair of classic Crocs you'll love customizing to show off your personality *and* cherish for how darn comfortable they are (haters be damned!).

    Promising review: "I love this sweater!!! It has the coolest button detail that you can button all the way up or have loose like my pics, it’s incredible soft, and it's amazing quality! I highly recommend this!! If you’re on the verge of sizes, just go up a size because you can’t go wrong with oversized right now!" —Stephanie Mason

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and seven colors).

    31. An oversized flannel, so soft you won't want to take it off even after you've spent a day feeding animals at a local farm.

    Promising review: "Super comfy, cozy, and cute! Love these, great fabric! I washed before I wore them and they didn’t shrink! That’s a huge plus! Quality is really good, the printed stars didn’t color fade or bleed into the white background! Very pleased! Fits perfect too!" —RJ

    Get it from cruelsummercompany on Etsy for $25 (available in unisex sizes S–2X and in green).

    34. Reversible sherpa sweatpants to add to your work from home wardrobe. They'll have you looking chic on all your video chat meetings and eventually you can totes wear them to brunch., Amazon

    Promising review: "These are the most comfortable and warm sweatpants I’ve ever owned. I literally have made them my relaxing and sleeping choice since it is so cold early in the season. They are not what you would call fashionable, but that’s not why you would own them. I ordered a second pair and may even get a third as I now can’t live without them. Going to be great this winter. If it is warmth and comfort you want then go for it. They are not slimming at all so if that matters to you, don’t bother. I have not washed them yet so can’t speak to the care of them. Be sure to double knot the ties or they will unravel or come out. That is the only thing I would change: finish the ties so this isn’t necessary. I’m glad Oprah hasn’t discovered these so there are enough to go around."Shopper Aware

    Get them from Amazon for $18.88+ (available in sizes XS–XL and eight colors).

    35. A crewneck that'll help you express your entire mood — a skeleton sippin' on some coffee. It's just as relatable as it is comfortable!, Amazon
