    26 Classically Cozy Things To Wear On The Chilliest Of Days

    Cold weather calls for fuzzy sweaters, thick socks, and the comfiest leggings.

    Unless otherwise specified, all sizes in this post are listed in women's.

    1. An oversized turtleneck sweater with a built-in bra so you don't have to have your cozy OOTD ruined by a bra wire poking you in the side. Honestly, what's better than having the support of wearing a bra without actually wearing one?

    Klassy Network is a woman-owned business that sells stylish clothes, swimwear, eyewear, and their well-known Brami top, aka a top that provides amazing support and doesn't require a bra underneath!

    Although I don't have this exact top, I have bought multiple Brami tops from Klassy Network and I LOVE them! Seriously, sooooo comfortable and cute! Which is my absolute favorite combo. 

    Get it from Klassy Network for $62 (available in sizes XXS–3XL and three colors).

    2. A cable-knit two-piece set perfect for those cozy nights at home when it's approximately zero degrees outside. This set is great for when you want to feel cute and "put together" even though your only plans are watching The White Lotus from start to finish.

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99+ (available in sizes S–L and 26 colors/designs).

    3. A pair of cozy alpaca wool socks for anyone with perpetually cold feet. These will keep your toes nice and snug as you venture out into the snow or burrow into the couch.

    Get it from Follkee on Etsy for $25.49 (available in adult sizes S–L and five colors). 

    4. An oversized scarf that'll keep you warm and add some cozy texture to any outfit — it's also big enough to wear as a shawl on especially chilly days!

    Promising review: "I bought this scarf because I am an everyday scarf wearer in the cooler weather. I think this scarf compliments every outfit I put it with. It is not small, it is thick, the colors look exactly like the picture. I like that I can use it as a shawl and not just a scarf. I've received many compliments wearing this scarf. I'm actually wearing it today because it was snowing! It is long enough where I can tie it in different ways and doesn't look or feel cheap. The scarf does not scratch at my neck. If you are looking for a quality scarf, I would recommend. I will be purchasing another!" —Jennifer Williams

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in 24 colors).

    5. A pair of high-waisted flare leggings made of an ultra-soft, textured twill material great for everything from running errands on a chilly day, to staying in, to working out. Plus, they have butt pockets!

    I am a big fan of these leggings! And most Aerie leggings, actually. I was hesitant to wear bootcut leggings again (I probably haven't owned any since high school), but these changed my mind. As someone who wears a size 18/20, I wasn't sure if the XXL would work for me, but the fit was perfect. The material is thick and stretchy so you don't have to worry about them feeling too restraining or being see-through — which are two things I look for in leggings. I also love the matching corset top to pair with them! I felt so cute and comfy in this outfit! 

    Promising review: " these pants! They are so comfortable, stretchy and very high-waisted! I bought my normal size and they are perfect. I hope other colors will come back in stock because I’ll definitely get more." —Monica

    Get them from Aerie for $38.97 (originally $64.95; available in sizes XXS–XXL, including Long/Short sizes, and five colors).

    6. A thick fleece sweatshirt with a satin-lined hood for anyone who loves to wear a hood, but worries about their hair getting frizzy. The high-grade satin helps promote moisture retention in your hair and protects it against breakage — while also keeping you nice and warm.

    Get it from Kin Apparel for $84.99 (available in unisex sizes XS–4XL).

    7. Or an extra cozy blanket sweatshirt if you're that person who is like, always cold. Speaking from personal experience, you will want to wear this every day in the winter!

    Kayla Boyd / BuzzFeed,

    I LOVE this thing. It allows you to literally wrap yourself in a blanket, but still be able to use your hands, without your poor arm suffering in the cold breeze. I wear this while working from home, watching Netflix, and while taking naps. It's so comfy that there have been times I don't want to take it off when I have to run to the store — the only reason I do is because I don't want it to get dirty. I can't imagine one person who wouldn't be happy to have this wonderful bundle of coziness.

    Promising review: "To say that it is comfy is more than and understatement. It feels like wearing a soft and warm blanket turned into a hoodie. Because I want to take a nap while wearing, I just put the hood on, tuck my legs in and fall asleep right away, warm and comfortable, no need to wear a blanket over it. Perfect for lazy Sundays!" —Patricia

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99+ (available in 17 styles).

    8. A slouchy beanie with a faux-fur pom-pom, because no one likes a cold head. Plus, it also makes a great solution for a bad hair day.

    Promising review: "Wow these are beautiful! I got the pair of pink and black hats. I had no idea the fur ball was interchangeable, so that was a fun surprise. I have zero complaints about these. They're absolutely worth the money and exceeded expectations." —Brandi F.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in 45 options, including two-packs).

    9. A cult-favorite Orolay parka that has six (!!!) pockets and a large fleece-lined hood, guaranteed to keep you extra warm all winter long. There's a reason this coat has over 17,500 5-star reviews!

    It also has a side zippers, which gives it a more relaxed fit — especially when sitting.

    Promising review: "This coat is no joke. The coldest temperature I tested it out was 9 degrees and I did not feel like I was freezing at all! I even tried to wear with just a T-shirt, no sweaters/layers underneath, to see if I felt cold...nothing. No cold! Boomshakalaka! It's also so stylish, roomy, has a thousand pockets (goodbye, purse!) and looks different from all the rest out there." —Zhure

    Get it from Amazon for $159.99+ (available in sizes XXS–5XL and in 13 colors).

    10. A loop-through faux-fur stole so you can keep the chill off and look ultra fabulous at the same time. It'll probably be your new favorite accessory and it'll definitely make you feel like someone's rich auntie.

    Promising review: "Honestly, I didn't know what to expect from such an inexpensive faux fur stole, but WOW, I was pleasantly surprised! The fur is silky smooth and looks close to real. It is a great size...not too large, not too small! It has an unnoticeable loophole, so the stole can stay put instead of sliding everywhere and having to 'hold on' to it with clenched arms. I bought this for my Great Gatsby dress and it fits in perfectly with the dress. If you are considering....I say put it in your cart and checkout!! You won't be disappointed!" —rjv4EVER

    Get it from Amazon for $16.79+ (available in two sizes and 18 colors).

    11. A teddy jacket for a warm yet stylish addition to your winter wardrobe. You'll love cozying up in this whether you're at home, school, running to the store, or hanging out with friends.

    I got this faux-shearling coat for Christmas and I have worn it tons since! It is soft, cozy, warm, and pretty much everything I want in a jacket. I love that it fits oversized so I can easily wear it over a sweater or hoodie. The front pockets are deep and easily fit my phone without feeling like it's going to fall out. And of course, I think it's really cute and stylish. For less than $35 (!!), I might even grab another color.

    Get it from Amazon for $30.99+ (available in sizes S–3X and 35 colors and styles).

    12. Or a knee-length cardigan coat, because it's ultra chic, yet ultra warm and fuzzy. This'll be the cherry on top of all your winter ~lewks~.

    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 $49.99+ (available in sizes XS–3XL and 22 colors/designs).

    13. A faux-fur headband so you can look like the baddie you are, even when the temperature doesn't wanna see you win. Keep those ears warm, while looking like a real-life ice princess.

    Promising review: "WOW. These look and feel like rabbit fur but don’t shed! They're excellent for keeping your head — especially ears — warm and/or protected from the wind. Think I’ll order a set for every female on my Christmas list. They are flattering and don’t mess up your hair." —Ice Queen Who

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in seven options, including packs of two).

    14. A pair of fuzzy slippers to keep your feet warm and comfy as you lounge around the house. Bare feet on cold hardwood floors should be a crime, tbh. 

    Promising review: "The coziest, softest slippers ever! And adorable! Great rubber traction on the bottom. Yet, soft and lightweight." —Lauren Fuquay

    Get them from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in women's sizes 5/6–9/10, including narrow sizes, and 18 colors).

    15. A striped sweater, because the best time to wear a striped sweater is all the time. (Truly, SpongeBob knew what he was talking about.) This one is meant to be perfectly oversized and it'll pair well with your favorite jeans or leggings.

    Promising review: "This sweater is adorable! I love the unique color combo, I got the orange and navy stripe and it is a staple in my wardrobe. You can dress it up or dress it down. It is not itchy, it is not too thick or too thin. It looks great with jeans and boots, you could wear it in the fall or in the winter! I love it as a front-tuck option for my high-waisted jeans. I’ve washed it several times on cold and hang it to dry and it still looks great! Excellent value for a super reasonable price point." —Ashley Mancione

    Get it from Amazon for $10.19+ (available in sizes S–XL and 18 styles).
