It was around mid-September when I had to accept that bare-leg season was officially over (hello, patterned tights). Mother Nature charmed me into fall with her beautiful foliage, helping to ease the pain of packing away my beloved sandals until next year. I started hearing words like flannel, shearling, chenille, and teddy. It all sounded so romantic, and brainstorming winter clothes ideas suddenly sounded dreamy.

I know cozy means something different to everyone. According to Erin Rittling, senior manager of styling for Aerie, cozy is “all about you.” This is to say, there’s no wrong way to add more warm, fuzzy feelings into your winter wardrobe. But if you’re looking for a place to start, blanketing yourself in a super-soft sweater isn’t a bad idea—Rittling’s been styling everyone from the model and inclusivity advocate Iskra Lawrence to singer Rachel Platten in them all season.

Prefer hygge with a hint of luxury? There’s no shortage of cashmere on the market right now. You can find everything from scarves and wraps to sweaters and robes in the luxe-feeling fabric. And if you can’t stay inside and hibernate ’til spring, the next best thing is to feel like you’re still in bed even when you’re not. Oversized puffer coats, blanket scarves, or long, cozy layers like a cashmere coatigan (coat and cardigan combo) from Garnet Hill, below, can help recreate those vibes.

Whether you’re dressing up or down, here are some cozy pieces that’ll look just as good by the fire as they will on a (cold) winter stroll.
