what to wear when it's cold, cozy winter style

With the holidays underway, we’re officially in nesting mode—the tree is up, the flannel sheets are on the bed and the Frasier fir candles are burning! There’s nothing better than a cozy and festive house for the holidays, don’t you think? But while we’d love to stay snuggled up under the faux fur throws all season, life doesn’t stop when the temperatures drop. To make stepping out into the cold a little easier, we rounded up the cozy picks we can’t live without. Whether you’re walking the dog or trying a new restaurant, these must-haves let you take that cozy-at-home feeling with you.

Megan: Fashion Meets Function

“As empty nesters, Mike and I spend lots of weekends at our lake house. We take our dog, Paddington, for walks, then warm up inside with good books. In the evenings, we’ll either cook dinner with friends or go out to a very casual restaurant in town. Camo joggers and a cute cardigan are my go-to for our casual routine.” 

Shop the look: Sunday in Brooklyn Cardigan | Peyton Jensen Tunic (the BEST layering thermal!) | Sanctuary Joggers (relaxed, but not sloppy) | Free People Bralette | J/Slides Sneakers | Simbi Haiti Bracelet

Julia: Game Day in the South

“My family has had Alabama football season tickets for many years, and we spend fall and winter weekends in Tuscaloosa cheering on our team. It doesn’t get super cold this time of year, so a vest and sweatshirt that nods to our team colors are perfect for staying toasty while packed in a stadium with 100,000 of my closest friends!”

Shop the look: Anorak Vest (love the longer length—flattering and keeps your tush warm!) | Sunday in Brooklyn Cowl Sweatshirt | 7 For All Mankind Jeans | Do Everything in Love Scarf (these pretty shades of gray go with everything) | New Balance Sneakers | Thirty-Nine 42 Earrings

Kendall: The Best of Cozy and Luxe

“Minnesota winters can be a downer, so my fiancé and I keep our social calendar full. We have a monthly dinner club with friends, sneak in movie dates on Tuesdays (cheap date night!) and we’re thinking about joining a bowling league (ha!). This faux fur bomber means I don’t have to sacrifice style when we go out!”

Shop the look: Peyton Jensen Bomber | Allison Joy Top | AG Jeans (the right jeans CAN be cozy—this high-rise pair and this boyfriend pair are also great) | 1. STATE Heels (wear with everything!) | Thirty-Nine 42 Necklace

Heidi: From Hockey Rink to Holiday Shopping

“With three kiddos, weekends go by at warp speed! This time of year, they start early with hockey practice. Mornings at the rink are not my best fashion moments, but a sherpa pullover and Spanx pull me together with little effort—and keep me comfortable for lunch and holiday shopping with my mom or girlfriends later.” 

Shop the look: Dylan Pullover | Sanctuary Button-down | Spanx Denim Leggings (with pockets!) | Smart Wool Socks | Sorel Boots (weekend must—these go everywhere) | Do Everything in Love Hat | Thirty-nine 42 Earrings
