Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 19 colors).

J Crew Factory

Promising review: "I love this coat; it has truly upgraded my outerwear game! It elevates every outfit and looks super chic and polished. I was deciding between this coat from J.Crew Factory and the cocoon coat from regular J.Crew. Style-wise, these two jackets are very similar. I like the pockets on this coat better. Overall, I love the camel color and am very happy with my purchase. Definitely a great purchase! The coat keeps me cozy and warm." —Mags

6. A pair of high-waisted leggings that'll slide on like butta. Get ready to fight the urge to slip right back into bed after putting them on.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "When I first removed the leggings from the packaging I instantly became sad and resigned myself to the fact that I would have to give these to my much smaller teenage daughter, but I decided to try them on before passing them down like I’ve done with so many outfits before. HOLY MACRO! They fit! And, not just fit, they fit perfectly! The stretch in these leggings is nothing like I’ve ever seen and the hold makes me feel lighter. They hold perfectly but they’re not tight; they stretch, but aren't see through. I absolutely love them and would recommend to anyone on the fence about buying them. Try them you won’t regret it. Oh, by the way, did I mention they make my butt look like a 25-year-old's? Hahahah, I love them!" —Carmen

Get it from Amazon for $25+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in 31 colors).

Promising review: "I am completely in love with this. It's such a soft and beautiful sweater. I wore it to work and got so many compliments. It’s just gorgeous! You can’t go wrong with this one. I usually purchase a large in cardigans and was worried that it wouldn’t fit 'all' but it’s roomy." —Lou2

Get it from Anthropologie for $158.

8. A wool skirt because there are few things better than a wool skirt, a perfect latte, and a brisk stroll along the promenade.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I am enthralled with this skirt. I had been wanting the skirt for a while, and going back and forth on whether it would be good quality and if I should buy it. The outer skirt is incredibly soft with deep pockets! I can't even say how ecstatic I am over these pockets. I bought the skirt knowing they'd have them, but the depth of them is very thrilling. You could fit an iPhone 11 in this pocket! I tried not to have high expectations of this skirt because I've bought similar things in the past and have been very let down. This exceeded my normal expectations for these skirts I look forward to actually styling it." —Aliah

Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 19 colors).

9. A drawstring skirt with a matching top that offers a twist on wearing traditional sweats.

I have been wearing dresses and skirts way more often this winter because I finally have tights I can feel comfy and confident in."

Get it from Snag for $12 (available in seven sizes and 10 colors).

11. An open front fleece hoodie on those days where you have to get dressed but you'd much rather be at home in a comfy robe.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I purposefully got this at a larger size. I have sensory issues and fibromyalgia, so anything touching me can really physically hurt sometimes. Anyway, this came vacuum-packed, was easy to open with scissors, and I opened it up and put my hand in and oh my God this thing is soft. Think of a baby blanket. Think of baby stuffed toys. You know that super soft plush fabric? This is what that is like. It is the softest thing, and you need it. First impression: super warm. Like, I could honestly leave the house at 20 degrees and still feel warm. I had to take it off once I got in the house because it's that warm and cozy, and I'm in a rayon dress right now! You got sensory issues? Get one. You have chronic pain? Get one. You hate puffy coats? Get one. You like soft things that feel like a gentle warm hug? Get one. I mean honestly. Best buy I've done in a long time, and I've been buying a lot of things as of late. PS: It's not hemmed all the way up to the armpits like other things, which leaves a lot of room so it's way more comfortable." —Emily René Polnaszek

I usually wear a large but had to size down to a medium. I suggest going about two sizes down if you want a fitted look. I wanted it to be a little loose fitting so I went with the medium. Overall, a very cute sweater." —Shopaholic1teacher

"I own this robe and definitely agree with the reviews; it's the softest fabric I have ever had on my body. I like to mostly air dry after bathing and liked the idea of having a really nice robe to put on when I step out of the bath/start my skincare.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I don’t normally write product reviews but this track suit is so amazing I had to. Because of the stretch of the fabric I could have possibly even gone a size down. But, for comfy lounging around the house the medium is great! Also I was shocked it looked so great on a guy, too! Check out our photo to see the fit. I wanted something comfy to wear around the house and this is one of my favorite clothing purchases in a while.

I wear the slit in the back, but you can wear it either way. The material is the perfect thickness for all year and is not see-through. These are a great staple to have." —Lauren Winn

I put it on as soon as it came and have pretty much been wearing it ever since. I've never been so comfortably warm in my house. I'm always chilly no matter what, but this sweater keeps me nice and toasty. There isn't really any stretch or give to the sweater.
