During winter and those lazy days year-round when you want to wear your comfiest clothes, all you need to do is a little planning to find a cozy, stylish outfit. Try some of these comfy wardrobe staples and accessories to get started.

Maxi Skirts

Maxi skirts are the most freeing and relaxed item in the skirt family. Long and billowy, maxi skirts are designed to be ultra-long and extremely flowing. Maxi skirts can range from light and gauzy to dark and durable. You might even want to try a sheer skirt with leggings underneath!


Sweaters are a staple in a stylish, comfy wardrobe. Traditional turtleneck, crewneck, and cable-knit sweaters are always fashionable choices for staying warm, and you can choose one with sparkle or a vibrant pattern to add flair. Boyfriend cardigans are another roomy, longer choice that produces a slimming effect. Don’t forget to add a belt to accentuate your waist and dress up any cozy sweater.


Hats are a convenient addition to any outfit, and they can be customized to fit your style. Hats with earflaps are probably the coziest accessory for a casual outfit during the winter, but if you’re looking for a soft yet dressier look, try a beret, beanie, or cloche hat.
