    BuzzFeed Shopping editor Maitland Quitmeyer says, "I bought this allllll the way back in 2019 and it's SO WARM!!!! I truly live in it all winter, and so do half the people I know at this point."

    Promising review: "Let me start by saying, my husband says that I am obsessed with coats. Out of probably 20 winter coats, this is now my absolute favorite! I can't even begin to tell you how much I love this coat; I love everything about it! The quality is outstanding! I have had every expensive brand-name winter coat, but have never ever had one that has kept me this warm! I'm not even looking forward to the warmer months because I don't want to put this coat away!! Every time I wear it, I get at least one, 'I love your coat!'" —Suzi Linthorst

    Get it from Amazon for $149.99+ (available in sizes XXS–5XL and 13 colors). 

    2. Or a hooded puffer coat that manages to feel super lightweight while providing exceptional warmth and protection from the elements. It's designed to be slightly longer in the back to fully cover your backside, with clever zips at each side for range of movement — you can actually sit in this puffer without unzipping the front of it, a major benefit if you'll be sitting outside in the cold for a while.

    It also comes in burnt red and black, if you don't care for the multicolor style!

    Promising review: "So lightweight for such a warm coat. It's warm, and yet I don't feel like I'm lugging a blanket around. The numerous pockets make it 'almost' possible to go around without a bag. The length covers the backside well. The side zips make it possible to sit down without feeling like my hips are going to bust out of the fabric. To get specific: I can plunk down on an aluminum bleacher during a misty cold night and still feel comfortable." —Sarah H.

    Get it from Universal Standard for $268 (available in sizes 4XS–4XL and in three colors). 

    3. Sherpa-lined fleece sweatpants you can reach for when your regular everyday sweatpants won't cut it against frigid temps and biting winds. These'll keep you toasty warm on your trek to work or class, and they'll *also* be your lifesaver if your roommate likes to keep the thermostat set waaaay colder than you'd like.

    FYI, these pants are available with Prime Try Before You Buy so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

    Promising reviews: "So soft! These are 10/10 and I would buy again. The stitching is great quality. The lining is so comfortable and soft. I haven’t taken them off since they came in today. I’ve never written a review before, but these pants deserve it." —Amazon Customer

    "I bought these for my daughter who’s in Iowa for college. She loves them. They kept her warm during winter. I’ll definitely buy her more next winter." —ynsmom

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and 12 colors).

    4. A turtleneck sweater dress made for picturesque outdoor photoshoots and other events where you want to look chic but feel cozy as heck. This versatile piece will help you transition your fall wardrobe into winter, letting your legs breathe while keeping you warm up top — and on extra chilly days, just pop on some tights or leggings and you're good to go.

    These are popularly worn with knee-high boots if you're skipping tights/leggings!

    Promising review: "The best winter cozy dress. Omg where do I start. I’m usually a L, but I ordered an XL because I was worried about the length. I love this dress. It’s so big and chunky and cozy but also super sexy!!! The pockets are amazing and the material isn’t itchy at all. It looks great paired with tall boots, but I’m sure you could rock some leggings and ankle boots and it would look just as amazing. Totally worth the price. It is baggy for sure, but I anticipated that when I ordered one size up so I could get the length I wanted. I want one in EVERY COLOR. Another Amazon win!" —Ashlee

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 38 colors).

    5. A splurge-worthy pair of rip-resistant Sheertex polka dot tights you'll be reaching for again and again once you put them to the test and see how durable the material is — there's nothing worst than finding one of those dreaded runs in your tights right before the fam's annual holiday photo!

    These are designed with a comfortable 4-inch waistband that lightly compresses but doesn't dig in painfully like some tights. 

    Promising reviews: "These are no doubt priced at the top of the market, but they are worth the premium charge. They are durable and a quality product, and unlike any other tights I have purchased where I only get one, maybe two, wears before I put a run in them, I am five wears in with my Sheertex with no noticeable decrease to the quality. I would definitely recommend the investment!!!" —Jacqueline L.

    "They are super durable!!! Played tug of war with my dog with the swatch of fabric that came with it, and was super impressed that they didn't tear lol. Also can we talk about how cute the polka dots are!?" —Lori C. 

    Get them from Sheertex for $35 (originally $69; available in sizes XS–3XL). Psst — you can check out the full Sheertex collection for more rip-resistant styles!

    6. And a pair of fleece-lined thermal tights for when you want to wear a dress or skirt but it's cold enough to see your breath outside. These will let you rock your winter 'fits exactly the way you want without your legs turning into icicles.

    Note that these are opaque, not sheer!

    Promising review: "The warmest tights ever. I have several pair of fleece tights, but these are by far the warmest. I live in Kansas, so it is common for us to have 20mph north winds during the winter. A 40-degree day can feel like 20 degrees and a 20-degree day can feel like 0 or below. I usually wear skirts or dresses to work so I need something warm on my legs. These tights paired with a skirt and boots are warmer than a pair of pants. They are also very soft and comfortable and fit great. I have a hard time finding tights to fit properly because of my long legs. A lot of tights are either too short and sag in the crouch area or come all the way up to my neck, but these don't do either. I just ordered another pair and will most likely order a third pair in another color." —Cindy Henley

    Get them from Amazon for $20.49+ (available in sizes S–XL, six colors, and in two-packs with various color combos). 

    7. Plus, a pair of plaid tartan tights that are like a cozy sweater for your legs! They're warm and thicker than your average tights, so they're ready for any cold weather adventures — and with a print this bold, you'll want to plan your whole outfit around them.

    Promising review: "Perfect tights for New England winters. Absolutely love these tights! They did not roll down, which made me happy to not be fussing with pulling them up all day long. They are super comfortable, high quality, thicker knit, but not so thick that they would feel too bulky under slacks. The colors are exactly what I was looking for! I am so pleased with these tights that I totally plan my outfits around them now." —Ducky

    Get them from Amazon for $18.48+ (available in sizes S–XL and six colors).

    8. A trendy teddy coat sure to keep you toasty warm when temps start to drop (so you can put off breaking out the bulky, puffy winter coat for longer), but without sacrificing a shred of style. It's perfect for milder winter days when you need an extra layer that won't make you overheat.

    This is by no means a heavy winter coat, but it's perfect if you live somewhere like California or Texas that has milder winters! And it's great for layering underneath a thicker coat as well. 

    FYI, this coat is available with Prime Try Before You Buy so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

    Promising review: "At first I wasn’t sure I liked this coat. It came compressed in plastic, and when I put it on, the pockets felt sewn in backwards. But it fluffed up and was super soft. It’s really nice for chilly SF weather. If you live somewhere that has a real winter season, you might be able to layer it like a bulky sweater under a big winter coat. I find myself wearing it every day and am tempted to wear it around the house — it’s like wearing a blanket! It is unlined, which is nice because it’s soft inside too and makes it lighter. This jacket may not be your fanciest or best made, but you might find yourself wearing it all the time!" —Ms Wiser

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in sizes S–3XL and in 35 colors).

    9. Or a longer fuzzy fleece open-front coat that'll come down to about your knees if you really like to wrap up — almost like a cozy bear hug. It'll be the perfect extra layer to throw on for those transitional early days of winter when you *really* don't want to overheat.

    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 Fahrenheit 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 $33.99+ (available in sizes S–3XL and 27 colors).

    10. faux-shearling pullover stylish and warm enough to wear out and about...but also comfy enough to pull on over your PJs while you're bingeing that new Netflix drama. Basically, you'll want to live in this thing (and probably buy one in every color).

    FYI, this top is available with Prime Try Before You Buy so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

    Promising review: "Bought it in three colors because I love it so much. It is thick enough to not let much cold air/wind in, but thin enough that I don't get hot indoors — if those two things can simultaneously exist. I LOVE the fact that you can zip it up all of the way and protect your chest and neck from the cold, but unzip it indoors and have an open neck shirt. This is definitely one of my best winter purchases for this season. I love love love it!!!" —AKH

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99 (available in women's sizes S–XL and 23 colors).

    11. A chic sweater with a long asymmetrical hem for anyone who basically lives in leggings all winter (it looks great with jeans too).

    Note that this sweater does run big, so consider sizing down.

    FYI, this top is available with Prime Try Before You Buy so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

    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 $36.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and 33 styles).

    12. And speaking of leggings: A pair of fleece-lined faux leather leggings that manage to look sexy and stylish while also keeping your legs ultra warm in the chilliest of weather. Need a dupe for those $100 Spanx leather leggings? Give these a go.

    FYI, these leggings are available with Prime Try Before You Buy so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

    Promising review: "I purchased these faux leather leggings during a late-night Amazon shopping spree. They don't look faux at all, are well-made, and I receive compliments on them every time I wear them. They are also extremely comfortable and fit like a second skin. They are super warm so I probably would not wear in warmer weather but are perfect for the fall and winter. They shape well and stay put! There is no rolling or slipping down with these babies. Put them on and they are going to stay where you put them. I love them!" —Kelly C. Albanese

    Get them from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes XS–4XL, including regular and tall sizes, and in six styles).

    13. A sherpa sweater perfect for wearing indoors when you want to keep the heating bills down — it's so ridiculously cozy, you might just be tempted to wear it to bed.

    a close up of the fuzzy texture of the sweater

    This sweater isn't super thick, so it's not appropriate for really cold days outside, but if you live in a warmer climate, it'll be the perfect lightweight winter sweater. 

    FYI, this sweater is available with Prime Try Before You Buy so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

    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 comfort is your style, this is YOUR sweater!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $33.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 17 colors)

    14. A simple, loose cotton sweater vest for winter layering — it's basically made to be thrown over a collared shirt for an ultra-cozy and casual OOTD. You can even go up a couple of sizes to wear it as a sweater dress!

    A casual collared button-down would look great with this!

    Promising review: "I put this sweater vest on and fell in love. It is cotton, a good substantial material. It doesn't cling uncomfortably anywhere, and covers the hip and rear. Feels right for fall and winter. I can wear it with tons of shirts and with leggings. I ordered three more vests. The top fits great, and I have room at the hem where I am much more curvy. ❤️" —Margie

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in sizes S–3XL and 10 colors).

    15. Or an oversized houndstooth knitted sweater-vest with major academia vibes — stylish enough for networking events or that major presentation you have to give, but cozy enough for everyday wear. You + this sweater in a coffee shop drinking a peppermint mocha = an Instaworthy aesthetic.

    Pair it with a button-down shirt or semi-sheer blouse for a classic, vintage-y look that's perfect for those days when you're trying to look a bit more put-together.

    FYI, this top is available with Prime Try Before You Buy so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

    Promising reviews: "I love this vest! It gives me a total vintage look. The sweater itself is already oversized, but I wanted a looser fit, so I went a size bigger, and I am happy with how it fits. Shipping did take longer, but it was very clear at the time of purchase the expected arrival date, so that wasn’t a surprise. I'm really thinking of getting more colors!" —Levi

    "This product runs a little big so be sure to consider the looser fit. That being said, the material is amazing and it is very warm and cozy. It looks really professional and clean when paired with a white button-down. I love this item." —umbo

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes S–L and in 13 colors).

    16. A long-sleeve fisherman polo for pairing with work slacks and a warm cardigan on chilly days at the office, or style casually with jeans for a weekend hangout. This rich paprika shade is *stunning*, but this top comes in pretty much every color of the rainbow!

    Get it from Big Bud Press for $82 (available in sizes P–7XL; available in many colors). 

    17. A chunky turtleneck that'll engulf your upper body in comfort and warmth on those brisk winter mornings. Truly a classic.

    Reviewers suggest sizing down if you prefer a more fitted look rather than the baggier style.

    FYI, this top is available with Prime Try Before You Buy so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

    Promising review: "I am obsessed with this! It’s the perfect fall/winter cozy oversized cable knit sweater. Perfect length for high or mid-waisted jeans and true to size. I normally wear an 8 but went one size up for a looser fit... the medium would have been perfect for a more fitted look. Material is SO soft. Can’t wait to wear this over the holidays, looks and feels like an expensive designer one!" —Bee Dav

    Get it from Amazon for $25.59+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 43 colors).

    18. A set of long thermal underwear to keep your whole body toasty warm. Though designed to be worn as a bottom layer in freezing cold weather, reviewers say this set is also soft and breathable enough for indoor lounging.

    Though form-fitting, this set allows for full-mobility and is squat-proof. It's also moisture-wicking so you never get that sticky, clammy feeling and stay dry.

    Promising review: "These are THE most comfortable long underwear! The fleece makes it so soft and comfy and warm, but for some reason you don’t get too hot indoors while wearing them. Highly recommend them!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in women's sizes XXS–3XL and 13 colors).
