    1. cropped sweater tank you'll no doubt want to live in. Pair it with leggings or distressed denim for a more casual look, or style it with the matching cardigan and shorts for a movie night at home. 

    Promising reviews: "Very cute and comfortable! Thicker material versus some other sets. Top is short but the bottoms are high cut and flexible so they fit together well!" —C. Larson

    "This is the perfect fall sweater set! I love that the top and cardigan can be worn separately or with other pieces, making it super versatile. Each piece washed well and is very soft and comfortable. Would definitely buy in another color. Also, I sized up in the knit tank so that it fits less like a bra top and it ended up being a perfect crop!" —Amazon Reviewer

    Get it from Amazon for $29.59+ (available in sizes XXS–5X and in four colors). 

    FYI, this sweater tank is included in Prime Try Before You Buy so you can try it on at home before purchasing!

I own several pieces from the brand — including the rib-knit bamboo lounge pants and rib-knit top —and holy guacamole they are SOFT. They're also breathable, stretchy, and easy to care for. I wash and dry them every week and they still look brand new! Oh, and did I mention that the pants have pockets?! Loungewear should always have pockets IMO so I was extremely pleased to discover that all Cozy Earth shorts and pants have roomy pockets. 😎

    "These leggings are the BEST. They're super soft but don't stretch out. I wore them on a cross country flight and they were so comfy and still smelled clean when I got to my destination, 12 hours later. I also wore them to haul literal construction waste – lumber, stones, moldy plywood – for a full day in the Vermont summer humidity and after a quick wash, they came out looking like new. Seriously impressive." —Emma M.

    Promising review: "I was worried this would be pretty small since it's one size, but I normally wear an XL and it's still oversized on me.

    Promising review: "This jacket is very well constructed. The fleece is heavy and it is lined with a cotton jersey that adds another layer of wind protection and helps the jacket keep some shape. It keeps its shape more than many other shackets I’ve tried, which is great! I expect to be able to wear this in low 40ish degree temps and remain fairly warm." —Emma

    This jumpsuit is machine washable (major win) and boasts pretty details like a scoop neckline and drawstring closure at the waist. 

    Promising reviews: "I am obsessed with lounge pants and rompers right now and this was a perfect addition to my wardrobe. Comfy enough to wear around the house or as pajamas, but cute enough to wear running a quick errand or on a walk. Fits true to size. I’ve noticed with some jumpsuits that the straps are too long so the front dips too low or is saggy, but not this one. The stomach area isn't too tight. I'm going to order a second one because I love it so much!" —Sarah H

    Get it from Amazon for $25.41+ (available in sizes XS–6X and in 20 colors/patterns).

    Promising review: "This set is absolutely gorgeous and cozy! I get compliments every time I wear it, whether together or separately. The colors really pop in person but aren’t obnoxious at all.

    Promising review: "Super cozy and casual. I was a little hesitant about buying this dress because of the price, but I am so glad that I purchased this amazing sweater dress!
