During these bone-chilling wintery days, we tend to spend tons of our time swaddled in a snuggly blanket at home, equipped with a hefty cup of coffee and delightfully festive TV. So naturally, for days like these, some equally cozy outfits are pretty much mandatory.
Ahead, we’ve gathered 20 cuddle-worthy separates you’re going to want to wear all season long. From fair isle knit leggings to the chunkiest boyfriend sweaters, consider your lazy day wardrobe sorted.

If there’s one print we can don all winter long, we’d pick fair isle in a heart beat. And when the print comes on a cozy piece like sweater leggings, we’re in heaven. Go for Club Monaco’s Elin Sweater Legging ($150) for the warmest way to cozy up while looking perfectly chic.
12. Cashmere Travel Wrap
Pricey? Yes. Essential? Definately. A Cashmere Travel Wrap like this version from White + Warren ($298) will be one of the greatest pieces you can invest in. Wrap yourself in it at your chilly office desk, on an airplane or just on the couch. Or, wear it daily as a scarf for the warmest layer you can imagine.

15. The Waffle Dress
We’re huge fans of simple pieces that are warm and cozy but can be easily dressed up, and Club Monaco’s Vergine Sweater Dress ($190) is just that. This grey waffle dress can easily be elevated with a skinny belt and heeled booties.
16. Cable Knit Joggers
Finished with a cable knit stripe down the legs, American Eagle’s Aerie Cable Knit Skinny Joggers (was $40, now $24) are the perfect pants to don on those lazy frosty days.

Few pieces are as easy and comfortable as an oversized sweatshirt, and when we find one that looks as chic as Sincerely Jules’ P.E.
