    1. A fluffy knee-length teddy coat that doubles up on warmth and sophistication. With its long lapels and supremely cozy fabric, you'll laugh at the thought of being cold during your morning stroll.,

    Promising review: "So fuzzy and comfortable! This is my favorite coat for the winter now. It fits so well — the arms are actually long enough, and it feels substantial in the cold weather. I've received a ton of compliments on it as well." —Dawn Dooley

    Get it from Amazon for $50.99+ (available in sizes S–3XL and in 22 colors and styles).

    2. A cutout halter neck sweater to shake off the idea that thick knits have to be bulky and drab. This right here is the answer to your fashion adversities come the wintertime: Trendy, warm, and oh-so unique.

    ^^ This savvy reviewer even wears it backwards to defeat any closet boredom!

    Promising review: "Such a cute sweater for the price!! It's fairly soft and not itchy at all. Goes with skirts, jeans, sweats, anything. The cutouts are so cute and I even like wearing it backwards to switch it up sometimes! Highly recommend! :)" —Esther Yang

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and six colors).

    3. A long-sleeved jumpsuit with a customizable drawstring waist, because Cozy o'clock is calling and that means it's time for free flowing fabrics only. Sayonara, denim and zippers! You have no place on our body for the rest of the day.

    Promising review: "I love this jumper. Super comfy, perfect fit. The waist is a string tie (not elastic!), which I really like. Elastic waistbands can sometimes be too tight even on comfortable clothes so the string is great. The ankles and wrists are stretchy with the perfect amount of 'give' so I can get my feet and hands in and out easily. The fabric is lightweight and easy to move, dance, yoga in. Of course, it's a v-neck so I wear a cami, sports top or halter underneath. And pockets!" —Debbie

    Get it from Amazon for $21.69+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 12 colors).

    4. Fleece-lined leggings that will seamlessly weather-proof any (and I mean, any) outdoor outfit with their thick, fuzzy layer. Once you slide on these leg warmers, it'll be even more obvious that it's what's on the inside that counts.,

    Promising review: "I do not know how I managed to live 39 years before discovering fleece-lined tights. I purchased a pair of black and navy to take home to Wisconsin for the holidays. They are incredible. The fleece is beyond soft and it doesn't add any bulk to the tights (which I was concerned about). I was able to wear dresses in 20-degree weather without my legs turning into icicles, and they really helped keep my feet warm as well." —Blondie, Esq.

    Get them from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in four colors).

    5. Lace-up boots so you can seamlessly replace your old scuffed up pair that are due for an early retirement. We truly love a *timeless* style.,

    Promising review: "I absolutely loved these shoes. They were perfect for the festival I went to. I wanted shoes I didn’t care that would get dirt and I didn’t want to wear my Docs for that reason. Honestly, I like these better than my Dr. Martens. I walked in these for three days straight eight hours a day and they didn’t feel like normal boots; they were pretty comfortable. They also did well when it rained or walking into puddles. And when people stepped on my feet they held up very well lol. 10/10 recommend." —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $47.99+ (available in sizes 5-10 and in three styles).

    6. A cozy knit roll-neck dress with pockets(!!) for an outfit that practically does all the work of getting dressed for you — and quite simply has glamour and warmth stitched into its core.

    Promising review: "Love, love, love this sweater. Fits great and feels nice and soft. Looks great with leggings, jeans, or boots. The pockets give it a nice chic look." —Chanel

    Get it from Amazon for $23.83+ (available in sizes S–XL and 24 colors).

    7. A unique off-shoulder blouse guests at dinner parties will admire and instantly think the fashion queen hath arrived. Because in this regal get-up, you can zhuzh up some basic jeans or pair it up with a pencil skirt and leave all the jaws dropping.

    Promising review: "So I look a queeennn, this it's the best top I have purchased and guess what? I GOT MYSELF A SECOND ONE!" —jitsel

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes L–5X).

    8. An expensive-looking faux shearling moto jacket because between you and me, this style has been my go-to for the past four years and I've never found a jacket that comes close to perfection like this one does. It's warm, stylish, dresses up loungewear, and perfectly complements a more pulled together look.


    Promising review: "This jacket is amazing. It looks expensive. It is extremely comfortable and warm, yet not too hot. Seriously, I wore it in 60-degree weather and was not too hot. I wore it in minus 5-degree weather, yes that’s right, and I was comfortable. I wore it in my house and I didn’t over heat. There’s something about the material. The lining does not shed or flatten and does not look chintzy. It’s thick and spongey like real shearling. It doesn’t really attract lint or hair or anything either. I just can’t say enough about this." —Huesitos

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and three colors).

    9. A super-soft terry pull-on jumpsuit to get your day off to a comfortable and productive start. Because between the hours of 9 to 5 you've promised yourself that you will not work from your bed — so as a treat, might we suggest something that replicates the softness of your sheets?

    Model wearing short-sleeved jumpsuit with pockets

    Promising review: "This is not a hard jumper to get in and out of. I have A LOT of onesies and stepping in through the neck is pretty standard stuff. This jumper is SO soft and looks great with a T under, turtleneck, or sweater. If you’re looking for your best at-home life, you want this jumper. I may or may not be on my third day in a row of wearing it. It rivals my Ilana Kohn jumper but if we’re being honest this ones better because it’s soooooo soft!!!! (And it’s about $200 cheaper!) If you’re reading this stop thinking it over and just do!" —Adeearl

    Get it from Madewell for $98 (available in sizes XXS–XXL).

    10. A pair of build-your-own yoga pants for your best-fitting leggings yet. These bad boys should be a staple for anyone who wants the ability to pick the size, waistband, and style that best suits their at-home or on-the-go lifestyle.


    Promising review: "These are awesome! They are snug, but I attribute that to their compression feature. I love the high-waisted top! I’m a preschool teacher, so I am up and down all day long. The top doesn’t roll and they’re not see-through in the back, so I am confident that I’m fully-covered all day long. I have worn them to work out as well and they felt great! I do wish they were a true dark pigment, rather than a gray/blue/black color, but my co-worker told me she didn’t even notice the off-black color even when I paired these with a white and black shirt." —Kasey Sumearll

    Get them from Amazon for $28.88+ (available in sizes XS–3X, high waist and cross waist, tall, short and regular lengths, and in two colors).

    11. Ribbed sweater split hem pants because the search for the perfect lounge pant is finally over and you can rest assured that this will serve your cozy (and equally fancy) mood well. Pair these with a sweater, a band tee, or a silky PJ blouse and you've got an Insta carousel waiting to be posted.

    Abercrombie and Fitch

    Reviewers recommend sizing down! 

    Promising review: "The fit is a little loose from the waist but otherwise it’s fits well throughout the legs. The material is warm, which makes it perfect for winters. It’s very comfortable yet looks classic at the same time. It can be paired with coats and sweaters which will be very useful during this season. I washed it in the machine with the colored fabric setting and it came out just fine." —Abercrombie and Fitch Customer

    Get it from Abercrombie and Fitch for $39.99 (originally $69; available in sizes S–XL and two colors).

    12. A coveted teddy fleece that everyone and their mother is purchasing this winter. And who can blame them?! This style is comfortable, chic, comes in your favorite color, and feels like a wearable blanket.


    Promising review: "This pullover is such great quality! It has a nice lining and is obviously constructed well. The fit is great and the sleeves weren’t too short! Soft and warm and such a pretty color. I really am happy with it!" —Louisiana Girl

    Get it from Amazon for $34.38+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in five colors).

    13. A faux leather trench coat — because since we're all just living in The Matrix anyway, we might as well steal some style notes from the underworld. And trust me, this is a *must-have* for the season! Reviewers award it five stars for style and versatility, so do your winter wardrobe a favor and add this to cart.

    model wearing the black trench coat

    Promising review: "I love this coat. It fits well and I get a lot of compliments when I wear it." —Eloquii Customer

    Get it from Eloquii for $179.95 (available in sizes 14–28).

    14. A deliciously fuzzy fitted long sleeve for a fluffy twist on a basic that's trés chic (just peep those faux pearls!). File this under: Cozy, comfy all-day top that'll look gorgeous on back-to-back video calls.


    Promising review: "Quality way above what I expected. I've been disappointed by some sweaters being inferior quality. NOT THIS ONE. If you want a luxury sweater, that brings numerous compliments, this is the one. It is soft and fluffy, not at all scratchy or picky worn alone. Pearl buttons are quality and dress up the sweater. I wore with jeans and black wedge heel booties. Very sharp. Washes like a dream. I put it in the washer on delicate cycle with wool wash and cold water, hung it on a padded hanger to dry, no pressing needed, no reshaping needed! I am impressed!" —RMM

    Get it from Amazon for $38.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in 10 colors).

    15. A loungeable cotton tee and jogger set sure to give you a ~rainbow~ of possibilities in how and where it can be worn. Pro tip: This pairs perfectly with hot cocoa, some fuzzy socks, and your favorite bingeworthy show.

    The black and rainbow set

    Get it from ModCloth: $29 for the tee (available in sizes XS–3X) and $49 for the joggers (available in sizes XS–3X).

    16. A puffer jacket with a cozy sherpa-lined hood to display your commitment to your number one color...while also protecting yourself from the elements without looking too bulky.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this coat, you can tell how warm it is going to be! I love the ability to cinch the waist and the zippers on the sides for when I’m sitting down, to give me some extra room!" —Jess

    Get it from J. Crew Factory for $94.50 (originally $238; available in sizes XXS–3X and two colors).

    17. Faux leather leggings reviewers say make the perfect Spanx dupe! Because sometimes we want the confidence of Sandy from Grease without having to shell out the big bucks.

    Reviewer showing leggings close up

    Promising review: "I actually had the Spanx faux leather leggings in my house when I received these to compare side by side. I loved the Spanx ones but couldn’t justify the $100 price. I wondered if there was a dupe on Amazon...this is it!! The fabric, material, and look is IDENTICAL to the Spanx. The fit is exactly the same as well. (BTW I sized up to a L from my normal M as they run a bit tight) Both leggings even have the same red ribbon label sewn into the waistband. They definitely must be from the same manufacturer. Only difference is the outer side seam of these is sewn in a slightly different way than Spanx...but who would know! I sent the Spanx back and am stoked to have the exact same look for 1/3 of the price!!!" —Alexis

    Get it from Amazon for $59.31 (available in sizes XS–4XL and three colors).

    18. A ribbed long-sleeve dress that, helloooo, checks off all the boxes when it comes to the perfect wintry piece. Asking for a friend: Could it get any better than a turtleneck that feels like a perfectly formed hug around your entire bod? Whether you're feeling sophisticated or casual, this'll do the trick with both sneakers and boots.

    model wearing the black dress

    Get it from Amazon for $29.14+ (available in sizes XXS–XXL and three colors).

    19. Cable knit tech-friendly mittens with fleece lining for the fail-proof accessory you'll need the next time you're attempting to record a TikTok dance in your yard.,

    Get them from Amazon for $14.99 (available in five colors).

    20. An oversized knit vest complete with pockets that'll award you major style blogger points when partnered up with a crisp white shirt or draped over a turtleneck and OTK boots. What do we call that again? Ah, yes, we call that über chic, darling.

    reviewer wearing the sweater vest

    Promising review: "Love the line of this vest! Love the pockets, too. Quality is really good and it actually kept me warm in a breeze when I wore it to a ball game." —Meggie B. 

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99+ (available in sizes S–4X and in 25 colors). 

    21. Square-toe boots soon to be the pièce de résistance of your 2022 wardrobe. Because there's no greater feeling than stepping into the new year with a super trendy, comfortable closet staple that you can wear with literally every single outfit.,

    And what's even more fantastic about your feet's new BFFs — they only *look* $$$, but in reality their price tag is well under $100.

    Promising review: "Very comfy and great looking boots! Just like the picture. The heel height makes me taller but isn’t too steep to walk naturally in. Zipper is smooth to pull up and it stays up and doesn’t creep down over time. Overall very happy with this purchase." —Rebecca Henry

    Get it from Amazon for $64.90+ (available in sizes 5–12 and two colors).

    22. A pair of cult-favorite Heat-tech leggings from Uniqlo — the foolproof style option that works as a perfect base layer for anyone who struggles to keep their bottom half well insulated. Slip these under jeans or wear them beneath a long dress or skirt for cozy, covered legs.

    The black leggings

    Promising review: "These are a must for the winter months! I buy these every year and they keep me warm when outdoors waiting for bus to go to work." —Customer

    Get them from Uniqlo for $19.90 (available in sizes XS–XL and in two colors).

    23. A tapered loungewear set that will give you all the comfort of your favorite PJs but with a more put-together look. (So you can actually get away with being seen by eyes other than your pet's!)

    Promising review: "What to buy when there's nothing to do and I never leave my house? A matching sweatsuit. I saw this on a BuzzFeed Shopping list and now it's my go-to quarantine ensemble. The top is cropped above the belly button so you definitely need the very high-waisted pants. I will be buying this in at LEAST one more color to get me through this Midwest winter." —Mary M.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in 10 colors).

    24. A fan-favorite Carhartt beanie over 60,000(!) reviewers swear by to keep their noggins warm. And as an added bonus, it looks super cute with practically every outfit.

    Reviewer wearing the black beanie

    Promising review: "I bought this in charcoal and lost it on a trip, so I bought the exact color again because I missed it so much. Now I'm back to buy it in more colors. It is thick (because it's a watch cap) but I wear it year round in Dallas or Chicago, it's my favorite hat. The fit is snug to the point that I can sling it back without it falling off and it fits over my afro or straight hair the same and doesn't lose its stretch after washing." —CE

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in 32 colors).

    25. A high-neck bodysuit for the perfect foundation layer that will act as your most stylish thermal yet. No more bunching up, tucking in, and re-tucking your tops when you just want a seamless, well-fitted look to go under a blouse, cardigan, or jacket.,

    Promising review: "This is something different. I’ve never seen a bodysuit like this. It has the perfect stretch so flattering and soft and it hugs your body just right plus it isn't a thong and lays nicely on your butt so it is an uncomfortable and doesn’t give you wedgies! I will definitely be buying this in different colors I was shocked by how much I love this." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98+ (available in sizes S–3XL and in two colors).

    26. Over-the-knee boots made of smooth and stretchy faux suede to round out your tall-boot collection. Might we be right in thinking you're missing a chunky-heeled pair that slides on as a stylish additional base layer?

    reviewer wearing the boots with two different outfits with shorts and jeans

    These thigh-high beauties come in a range of heel styles and heights and calf widths — so you can be as choosy as you'd like when it comes to finding your dream pair!

    Promising review: "Couldn't be happier!! I ordered these boot after reading the reviews and I'm glad I did. I bought the low heel version and they are super cute if you don't want a super-high heel. I am 6 feet tall and these boots are ACTUALLY thigh high!! The boots hit about 6 inches above my knee. At the top of the boot my thigh measures at 18.5 inches and I still have room for skinny jeans underneath. As a tall girl these are amazing. I never find thigh high anything! If you are on the fence and you are tall, absolutely buy these!!!" —LAYLA

    Get them from Amazon for $48.69+ (available in sizes 5–10 and 15 colors).

    27. A pair of high-rise Levi's skinny jeans with four-way stretch that contour to your form and comfortably define your shape. Because it might finally be time to retire that washed out, ill-fitting pair that are no longer serving you and just taking up precious real estate in your drawer.

    Model wearing the jeans

    Promising review: "I love these jeans. They stretch a lot, but still remain fitted. I went a size up thinking the waist would be tighter like the other pair I purchased. I should have stayed true to size that would have been the best fit. Otherwise good." —Customer

    Get it from Levi's for $89.50 (available in sizes 14M–26M and in two colors).

    28. A high-waisted flared winter skirt with pockets, because you'll allow a monochromatic palette when it comes to a great plaid. Plus, you won't have to forfeit your great style in this even when the temperature reads freezing-degrees Fahrenheit.,

    Promising review: "I was so impressed with this product — I have never been more satisfied with a clothing purchase on Amazon, ever. The cut prevents it from being scrunchy and bulky; it’s a heavy weight wool so perfectly warm for a winter skirt, it’s lined all the way down; the front waist is a solid band of fabric, it stays in place and doesn’t twist. I’m ordering more. Flattering cut no matter your size. So far the material hasn’t pilled (I have red plaid, it’s flown through two Christmas parties and an all day charity event with no fuzz of pilling). Fantastic purchase." —D

    Get it from Amazon for $23.09+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 29 colors).

    29. A staple black duster cardigan that is the perfect mid-layer for your wintry outfit and makes for a great draping piece if your apartment gets drafty. Worn over a shirt and under a long-line coat, you'll feel toasty and look chic at the same time.

    Model wearing the cardigan

    Promising review: "I was surprised how this cardigan looks because of the price I had paid. Truly bank for your buck! It is very stylish, well made, and the fabric is soft and comfortable. I highly recommend this cardigan to my friends." —Very Pleased

    Get it from Amazon for $16+ (available in sizes S–3X and 14 colors).

    30. A pair of warm and fuzzy black Ugg slippers to complete your at-home winter uniform. Because any other color does not do well with disguising coffee spillages.

    BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer

    Psst! Over 5,000 reviewers rave about these shearling slingbacks and some suggest sizing down.

    Promising review: "Super Duper comfy. I wear them all over the house. They keep my feet warm. I have a bone spur in my right heel and these slipper cushion my heel very well, no pain. My one negative is when I have to take them off." —iklaz

    Get them from Nordstrom for $100 (available in sizes 5–12 and nine colors).

    To find out more, read our full review of the slippers here.

    31. A thick knit scarf with rave reviews that confirm its ability to ~infinitely~ shield your neck from the icy winds. The circle design is long enough to be looped a couple of times, that way you can nuzzle into it and pretend that no other colorful accessories exist.

    Model wearing infinity scarf

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE this scarf, because of not only how soft this is, but how much warmth this scarf provides while being a fashionable staple piece to your wardrobe. I live in Alaska, so I can definitely vouch for our cold weathers here and for this scarf to be cute and warm, gives it an extra five stars from me for being a genuinely good product for meeting its purpose. For future customers that are on the fence about purchasing this, DO IT! It's totally worth it!" —Sol

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in 36 colors).

    32. A wrinkle-resistant hooded dress essential for days when you want to wear something that's a little more spiffy than your collegiate sweatshirt which has yesterday's soup spilled on it.

    model wearing the black hooded dress

    Promising review: "I did not expect to like this as much as I do. My boyfriend bought it for me and I've never worn a hoodie dress. I tend to sweat easily and yet this dress does not cause that. It's warm but it's not too thick. It looks great with or without leggings/tights and because it's a good material it can be washed in the machine without having any issues. I also love the fact that it is very flattering. After wearing this, I plan on purchasing additional sweater dresses in the future." —Torrid Customer

    Get it from Torrid for $51.67 (originally $79.50 available in sizes M–6X).

    33. An all-season running jacket so breathable yet cozy, it'll keep you warm *and* repel the rain. Perfectly practical for anyone who insists on working out in below freezing temps — and ideal for jogging away from any and all bright colors!

    model wearing the jacket

    Promising review: "Lovely comfortable fit, great for out running as it keeps you warm but doesn’t cling to you. Nice breathable material too." —Adidas Customer

    Get it from Adidas for $100 (available in sizes 1X–4X).
