Up your cozy style for winter

Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean you need to be hanging out at home in stretched-out sweats that have been worn a few years too many.

Up your weekend comfy winter clothes game and maintain your strong sense of style all year long.

By turning to thrift shoping, you can keep the comfort but lose the meh factor at prices that meet your budget. Plus, you’ll be ready to head out for a last-minute invitation from friends or to run errands without hiding under your long puffy winter coat.

Here are some winter fashion ideas that keep the fashion in winter.


A comfy winter clothes essential is a stylish sweatshirt.

It’s all about the details with this Eddie Bauer sweatshirt. Keep out the cold with this gray cotton sweatshirt with aqua pinstripes. For added warmth, button it up all the way to the top if you want your neck covered. The thump holes will keep your fingers toasty, while the longer length will have you covered inside or out. This Lou & Grey heather gray sweatshirt with a cowlneck would be great on its own or underneath a zippered vest.


Ponchos are hot, hot, hot this season, and they fit perfectly in our quest for winter fashion ideas that are trendy yet offer that lived-in, easy feeling. Take this Stylus silver and carbon gray poncho, for example, that would be wonderfully satisfying with leggings and a red, black, gray and white plaid scarf, if you are bold enough to mix patterns. Grab yourself a book and a blanket and you’re ready for a few relaxing hours on the couch!

If you’re looking to add more color, try this red turtleneck poncho-type sweater that features a dressier look. Pair with dark skinny jeans and ankle boots and invite a friend out for lunch since you’re feeling on top of the world.

Sweaters and cardigans

Oversized, loose sweaters and cardigans are made for stylish yet cozy weekend winter wear, like this loose-knit long cardigan from RD Style and this attention-grabbing orange-red turtleneck sweater from the Limited. They’re both long enough to pair with leggings or skinnies. We love options! Heading out? Transition easily by tossing on a statement necklace.


There’s nothing finer that finding second hand clothing that’s new with tags at second hand prices. We’re scoring “new” comfy winter clothes with these vests that up our weekend style game. No matter what the season, vests are always part of our wardrobe. Always.

We easily could pour ourselves into this gray wool blend vest from Democracy with pockets and fringe. Or go completely casual with this beige and black plaid vest from Lane Bryant that only needs a black long-sleeve tee or crewneck sweater underneath.

Going out for a movie instead of staying in? No problem! Grab your black booties and you’re set.
