Winter sucks where I live at this time of year and it’s really cold and gray most of the time. Plus it gets dark so early. Last night I went to a tanning booth, just for 10 minutes and with all my clothes on, to improve my mood. I do that a handful off times in the winter. Another thing that makes me feel good is wearing clothes that are cozy while looking somewhat put together. I like to wear comfortable sweaters with nice jeans, leggings that look presentable and pullover tops that you can accessorize to wear out. If you do your hair and makeup you can look fashionable without having to go to much effort. This is an Amazon post so please feel free to research alternatives. (Also I know my recommended stuff is basic! I love solid colors and versatile separates. I do like a nice bold print but high rated products with prints and stripes are actually harder to find on Amazon.)
Comfortable jeggings you can probably sleep in
A reviewer called these $20 jeggings “Pajama jeans work edition” which is clever and reminds me of my daily wardrobe. She writes that you “can wear them to work because they have pretend pockets and belt loops!” and that she might buy more. Other people love them because they’re “comfortable,” “thick” and “soft.” Women who are sized small, medium, large and xx-large give them positive reviews although some write that they run a little big. They come in five colors including black and light wash.
A turtleneck to layer under sweaters and dresses
I love turtlenecks so much that I had to check and make sure I didn’t link this $16 turtleneck before. I didn’t! I included a cashmere turtleneck in our holiday fashion post and a turtleneck tunic in another. Turtlenecks are great layering pieces, especially under knit dresses and sweaters. You can make a summer dress more versatile with a turtleneck underneath and tights. This great slouchy turtleneck comes in gray, black and navy. Reviewers write that “it’s extremely soft, not too warm, not too thin,” however some say that the navy color is so dark it looks almost black. Here’s a really cute plus-sized option in more colors.
A long cardigan that can be dressed up or down
This lightweight long cardigan would make a great transition piece to spring while being a cozy sweater to lounge in at home. It’s just $25 and comes in five colors and sizes from x-small to xx-large. A reviewer writes that the “fit is perfect,” and that it “looks classy, not boxy.” It’s also said to “wash and wear wonderfully.” Here’s another long cardigan from Lark & Ro.
A chunky sweater you’ll want to wear all winter
Chunky sweaters are another one of my go-to pieces in the winter. They just feel cozy and warm. This sweater is priced different depending on size and color, with the most popular colors and sizes running less than $34. Women write that “it looks great tucked into jeans or with leggings,” that it’s acrylic so it doesn’t shrink and that it’s “very comfortable” and “actually keeps you warm.” Some people warn that you need to order a size up if you’re going for the oversize look like in the photo.
A bright long sleeve t-shirt that’s anything but basic
I have a lot of clothes but my go-to pieces are always solid color basics like this long sleeve t-shirt from Amazon. It’s a bargain at just $11 and comes in so many colors you’ll want several. Sizes range from x-small to xx-large. You could easily wear this on top of a t-shirt to the gym, to bed or out with a sweater or accessories over it.
A cute pair of ankle boots that make you look put together
Nice shoes can tie an outfit together and in the winter that’s boots. These best selling Sam Edelman ankle boots retail around $100 and come in a lot of colors and prints depending on your size. Reviewers say they hold up for a long time, that they’re versatile, and that they fit nice and are comfortable. However some reviewers say the sizing is off and you should order half a size up.
A comfy sweatshirt with stripes to brighten your day
I’ve been watching The Good Place and wanting to copy Eleanor’s style. She has a few rainbow-print tops that I’d love to steal. I spent a lot time looking through Amazon and apart from a rainbow sweater with four reviews I couldn’t find anything rainbow print that I would recommend! So here’s a cute sweatshirt with a bright stripe print. Reviewers call it a “perfect retro looking top” that’s comfortable, cute and stylish. Some women write that the arms are too short though.
