1.

An open front cardigan worthy of all the compliments it’s bound to receive. Slipping this on over a wrinkled white tee and your most faded denim = upping your ~chic~ factor by about 97%. You can’t argue with science.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I absolutely love this cardigan! The fabric feels thick, soft and warm yet the threads feel slightly silky. It is very well made and feels high quality and expensive. I have broad shoulders and a 40DD chest and this doesn’t make me look boxy and bulky like some cardigans do. I’m in love! It comes down almost to my knees so it elongates my body as well! I feel so trendy when I wear this.” —Jewel

Get it from Amazon for $23.59+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 27 colors).

2.

An ultra warm cable-knit two-piece set that will make re-watching The Vampire Diaries for the 90th time this year feel like, well, a luxurious experience. Matching loungewear = a foolproof way to feel fancy.


amazon.com, amazon.com

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 $23.59+ (available in sizes S–L and 20 different styles of sets).

3.

A faux fur aviator jacket destined to ~fly~ into my wardrobe because I am absolutely purchasing it for myself. This trendy bébé is also slightly oversized which means — huzzah! — even your bulkiest sweaters have just met their match.


Nasty Gal

Get it from Nasty Gal for $41 (originally $135, available in sizes S/M-M/L and in two colors).

4.

A turtleneck sweater dress for a chic way to feel as if you’re *wearing* that ultra soft throw blanket you purchased in three colors from TJ Maxx. The rib knit material is truly a joy.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “This is WAY BETTER than I thought it would be when I purchased it. First of all the size is perfect! Its absolutely an oversized sweater, and the material is great and I personally love the pockets! I wore with some simple leggings and was just in heaven at how comfortable I was. Anyways y’all BUY THIS SWEATER!” —Kristen Saunders

Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 13 colors).

5.

An off-the-shoulder top because we place way too much emphasis on the LBD — it’s the little black top that serves us best and *this* is the perfect one. This cozy basic can be paired with anything from your most worn denim to those buttery soft leggings you spent $98 on (and don’t regret in the slightest).


Forever 21

Get it from Forever 21 for $19.99 (available in sizes 0X-3X).

6.

Faux leather leggings available in a delicious burgundy color that are high-waisted, affordable, incredibly trendy, and made from an extremely soft fabric that will make you exclaim “Wow!” at first touch.


Target

Promising review: “I am absolutely love these! These are my first pair of faux leather leggings and they exceed my expectations! They’re an extremely soft fabric and not stiff at all, which I was surprised by. They’re very comfy. I got a size medium and these run true to size I feel. And they’re long! I am 5’5 and these go well past my ankles which I love. I hate ankle pants or leggings. These are great!” —Abc123

Get them from Target for $20 (available in sizes XS-4X and in two colors).

7.

A two-piece outfit that is basically a gazillion options in one: Wear this as a matching ensemble, throw on the sweater with workout leggings, pair the bottoms with your favorite band tee, and the list goes on.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I’m always kind of nervous to order clothes online because how never know what you’re going to get. The fit, color, and fabric may be all wrong. I thought this was so cute though, so I thought I’d give it a shot and it didn’t disappoint. I got the dark green color which is so pretty, plus it’s so soft and comfortable. I may order more in different colors because it’s so cozy.” —Debi

Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in sizes S-3XL and in 18 colors).

8.

Sherpa-lined sweats to make your legs feel as if they’re being enveloped by a large, fluffy bathrobe. If you’re dreading the winter and are perpetually cold (#me), then these babies are great — bonus points for a tapered leg that sets these apart from your oversized pajama bottoms.


Amazon

Promising review: “I’m always cold in the Wisconsin winters. These toast me up and are perfect for lounging. So cozy.” —Jodi Larson

Get them from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in nine colors).

9.

A long-sleeved jumpsuit that requires absolutely 👏 no 👏 effort 👏. Finding a matching top and bottom before your morning cup of coffee? Inconceivable. Slip this cozy one-piece on instead.


Amazon

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 $27.99 (available in sizes S–XXL and four colors).

10.

A tie-waist shawl coat so chic, the fact that it’s also incredibly warm is just a perk! One reviewer swears that it’s suitable for a Minnesota winter which, uh, I’ve heard can get more frigid than I even want to think about.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I was searching for a winter coat (one that’s Minnesota-appropriate) and came across this one. I thought it was beautiful in the pictures, and it seemed to have great reviews. Again, living in Minnesota, our cold is a little different than anyone else. Though I was in the market for a nice winter coat, I am also looking for an alternative down for the big snowstorms! So, I put the coat in my cart and waited so I could think about it. Low and behold, I run into a friend of mine at Whole Foods wearing this jacket! To see it in person, and she confirmed it is warm, I knew I had to have it myself. The moment it arrived and I put it on, I was more than happy with my purchase. I wore it to Thanksgiving and received all sorts of compliments.” —Tera Shopping

Get it from Amazon for $89.90+ (available in sizes XXS-3XL and in eight colors).

11.

A velvet blazer you can throw over any old top (cc: the old high school gym shirt you sleep in five nights a week) and voila! You’re now chic enough for a supporting character role in The Devil Wears Prada.


Express

Get it from Express for $99 (originally $128, available in sizes 00-14 and in two colors).

12.

A tie-waist shirt because it’s about time you retire that $12 version you bought for that internship interview during your senior year of college. It had a good run, but it’s time to move on to an upgraded classic that is the heart eyes emoji embodied.


Hours

Get it from Hours for $88 (available in sizes S-XL and in two colors).

13.

An asymmetric cowl neck sweater that looks like something I’d want to wear in Martha’s Vineyard. I’ve never actually been but, judging from the photos I’ve seen on the interwebz, this just really screams Martha’s Vineyard in the off-season to me.


amazon.com

Promising review: “Going back for more colors!! The quality is excellent and this pullover is SO soft. It also runs true to size.” —Christina Marcellino

Get it from Amazon for $31.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 19 colors).

14.

A sleeved sweater dress best described by one word: effortless. Wearing this number means looking stylish without having to wear your most uncomfortable stilettos (s/o to my younger self who wore 4″ heels for hours on end with no complaints).


Nordstrom

Get it from Nordstrom for $47.40 (originally $79, available in sizes XXS-3X and in three colors).

15.

An oversized turtleneck faintly calling out for — do you hear it? — a pair of OTK boots. Perk up your ears, folks, because the heart wants what it wants and *this* sweater demands to be worn exclusively with trendy shoes.


amazon.com

Promising review: “One of my favorite sweaters I’ve purchased this season! I ordered a size up for an oversized look. It’s very soft and not itchy at all. The yellow is gorgeous. The quality is also very impressive for the price.” —Britny M.

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

16.

A bell-sleeve cardigan that I am personally dubbing a fitted-blanket-with-sleeves due to how downright cozy it is. One reviewer swears that it’s the ~softest and comfiest~ cardigan they’ve ever owned which, wow, what high praise.


amazon.com

Promising review: “Love love love this cardigan! It’s so SOFT!! It’s like being wrapped in a blanket. It’s so warm and cozy! And it’s oversized, which is just how I love them!” —Tracey

Get it from Amazon for $44.90 (available in sizes XXS-3X and in two colors).

17.

A quilted puffer jacket available in a velvet finish *and* a stunning plum purple hue best described as divine. Stay tuned for my debut novel, the tentative title of which is “I Hate Being Cold But Love Outerwear That Makes Me Feel Like Royalty.”


Lulus

Get it from Lulus for $59 (originally $98, available in sizes XS-XXL and in two colors).

18.

A high-waisted flared winter skirt for the tortured soul who *le gasp* actually prefers wearing skirts and dresses to sweats and jeans. I don’t get it! But here we are! This bottom is made from a slightly thicker material that will keep you warm, has a pattern and color combo that feels seasonally appropriate, and there are p-o-c-k-e-t-s.


amazon.com, amazon.com

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 $29.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 29 colors).

19.

High-waisted leggings because sure, you could “technically” wear leggings in the summer — but in winter? It’s acceptable to wear them every single day. This splurge-worthy pair is ultra breathable *and* has a compressive waistband and curve enhancing stitches.


Good American

Get them from Good American for $85 (available in sizes 1-8).

20.

A houndstooth pullover practically *begging* to be worn with high-waisted leggings thanks to its cropped silhouette. Looking très chic and exerting no effort to get there!? A dream, honestly.


Mulberry & Grand

Get it from Mulberry & Grand for $65 (available in sizes S-L).

21.

A fleece hoodie dress that I intend on buying/hibernating in all winter long. 🎶 So long, farewell, gotta add this to my Amazon cart. 🎶


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “This dress is very comfortable and cozy for the winter. I am tall and plus size. It falls halfway down my calves. It’s very thick and nicely made. I just throw it on to run errands and look cute while doing it. It’s as comfy as a pair of sweatpants but way more stylish. I love it and will be buying other colors.” —Theresa Casanova

Get it from Amazon for $37.99 (available in sizes S-3X and in 10 colors).

22.

A crew neck pullover available in seven hues ranging from ~neutral and goes with everything~ to ~creamsicle orange for adding a pop of fun to your wardrobe~. Tomato, tomahto: Rest assured that you’ll be in love with this sweater regardless of the color you choose.


Target

Get it from Target for $20 (available in sizes XS-4X and in seven colors).

23.

A faux shearling moto jacket that looks like it would cost upwards of seven trillion dollars (*giggles nervously* right on budget) but thankfully, it does not. Consider this the cold weather equivalent of a blazer: You’ll look ultra put-together when you slip this on over any outfit.


Amazon, amazon.com

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 $59.66+ (available in sizes S–XL and three colors).

24.

An open front cardigan so — honestly, scratch that. It’s not a cardigan. It’s a blanket with pockets and sleeves. And it deserves our admiration and respect.


amazon.com

Promising review: “Oh man, this thing is SO soft and smooshy… I LOVE it. I’m usually a 22/24 and I’m really happy with this cozy little jacket. It still manages to be big and slouchy and it’s just SO SOFT. I can’t decide whether to just wear it around the house or out — it’s definitely a casual look, but it would work either way.” —Wrenn M.

Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 20 colors).

25.

A sleeved velvet jumpsuit I personally won’t allow you to wear unless you pinky promise to take 97 photos in it!!! I mean!!! Owen Wilson w-o-w.


ModCloth

Get it from ModCloth for $119 (available in sizes XS-4X).

26.

A three-piece set that comes with the following: bottoms (with your choice of skinny or wide leg), a crop top (with two coverage options), and a longline cardigan. Get ready to wear it all together *or* mix and match with other pieces in your closet.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I love this!!! It’s going to be my birthday outfit! It’s so comfy, fits right, and the color is so vibrant!” —Henry A Hall II

Get it from Amazon for $29.39+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 15 colors).

27.

A pullover sweatshirt featuring an alien embellishment you’ll definitely want to make ~space~ for in your wardrobe. Extraterrestrial aside, it’s made from an ultra soft jersey fabric that is supremely cozy.


amazon.com

Reviewers suggest ordering a size up for an extra comfy fit.

Promising review: “Very cute sweatshirt. The pink color is very cute and as shown in the photo. I love the alien patch on it! The fabric is stretchy and comfy.” —Airaj V.

Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 38 colors).

28.

A cult-favorite Orolay parka to help you thrive through even the most frigid of winters; this is designed with a cozy sherpa-lined hoodie, deep pockets to keep your hands nice and toasty, and the perfect midi length to make sure your ~assets~ are covered.


Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

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 $107.99+ (available in sizes XXS-XXL and in five colors).

29.

A sweater dress that is, and I cannot stress this enough, all I want to wear ever again. That soft fabric! That twist back! Excuse me whilst I drool how unbelievably cozy this looks.


Aerie

Get it from Aerie for $48.71 (originally $64.95, available in sizes XXS-XXL and in three colors).

30.

A knee-length cardigan coat you’ll regret not having purchased, like, 10 years ago. This is perfection in outerwear form: chic, warm, cozy, and can be layered over fancy and casual outfits alike.


amazon.com, amazon.com

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 $44.99 (available in sizes XS-3XL and 10 colors).

31.

A plaid flannel shirt that’s just inspired me to scour Airbnb for a staycation in the middle of nowhere. I can picture it already: surrounded by nature, drinking coffee in a semi-modern cabin with floor-to-ceiling windows.. all while wearing this top.


Amazon, amazon.com

I feel like that person from the York Peppermint Patty commercial.

Promising review: “Such a cute flannel! Thick, great quality, well made, and definitely exceeded my expectations.” —A. D. Fox

Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in three colors).

32.

A merino wool mockneck sweater for a basic piece of clothing that will be worn an approximate eight days a week. This ultra stylish staple is warm *and* can be gussied up or worn casually.


Frank & Oak

Get it from Frank & Oak for $89.50 (available in sizes XXS-XL and in three colors).

33.

A sleeved jumpsuit that has “comfortable chic” down to a science. Forget the headache that comes from matching a top with a bottom: simply slip this on instead.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “This is amazing and fits like a glove. I wore this on a 16-hour straight flight from Houston to China and it was soooo comfortable! I have zero complaints.” —Asia Q

Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 11 colors).

34.

A velvet dress so luxe, it’ll look like you just spent the entirety of several paychecks on this one designer item, but surprise! You didn’t. This gorgeous number is surprisingly way more affordable than anyone would assume (and the stretch fabric is extremely comfortable to boot).


amazon.com

Promising review: “I am RARELY able to buy something online two days before an event, throw it on, wear no shapers under it, and go. But. This. Dress. Is. Different. I love it so much! I wish I had more holiday parties to go to so I could own it in every color! I’m a solid 18, this hugged every curve, was flattering, and was nicely lined. I don’t have an hourglass figure, but this made me feel like Jessica Rabbit.” —sheeshbri

Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in sizes 14-24 and in 15 colors).

35.

A mock neck bodysuit because bliss = being able to wear any denim rise with confidence knowing you won’t have to tuck and re-tuck your shirt oh *checks watch* every five seconds.


Nordstrom

Get it from Nordstrom for $25 (available in sizes 1X-4X and in three colors).

36.

Deliciously comfortable fleece sweatpants made from 60% cotton and 40% recycled polyester, aka these loungers are worth a bit of extra coin because they turn literal trash into wearable gold.


Richer Poorer

Promising review: “I’m super picky about my sweatpants and have been searching for a comfy, SOFT, good-fitting pair and these were PERFECT. These were a perfect fit in every aspect and look like they fit well without being overly baggy. The cinch at the bottom also makes it look more put together. I got it in the Warm Gray color and it is so cute and trendy. I’ve had these on for five days straight since I got them.” —Megan

Get them from Richer Poorer for $72 (available in sizes XS-XL and in 11 colors).

37.

A slightly cropped turtleneck featuring three side tortoiseshell embellishments that are — I am sorry in advance — as cute as a ~button~. Excuse the puns please, I haven’t seen sunlight in a while.


Amazon

Promising review: “Material is buttery soft and drapes very nicely. I was pleased with the quality and have worn several times already.” —Nikki Davy

Get it from Amazon for $44.90 (available in sizes XXS-3X and in three colors).
