Settle In, Folks

The wintry feeling that the world is your enemy, and your only ally is bed? We know it well. Here's how to beat it.

Maxine Coat

Nothing brings on the winter sads quite like the itchy legs, frozen noses, and icicle-like fingers that one day of being under-dressed for the weather can cause. Who needs it, right? Planet Earth, apparently, and so, we must endure.

Happily, with winter comes warm, soft clothes that not only look great, but will help you feel like you never had to get out of bed at all. Here are ten of our favorite picks of the season for guys and girls.

Puffer Parka

This puffer parka is as close as you can get to wearing a down comforter outside, without actually dragging your bedding around with you in public. We love the way you can bury your face into it when it gets windy, and we especially love that it costs less than $150.

Trail Model Down Hooded Parka, $148, llbean.com.

​Cashmere Hoodie

Submit to the pleasure that is the cashmere hoodie. Give yourself over to its power. Wearing a cashmere hoodie is like having a kitten snooze on your chest, or in especially wonderful cases, like you have become that snoozing kitten yourself.

Warm Boots

Like a hug for your feet, Danner Boots will keep your toes warm and comfortable. Plus, their Vibram soles will help you stay upright on icy surfaces.

Danner Mountain Light Overton Boots, $330, eastdane.com.

Down Pants

These look like individual sleeping bags for your legs, and that is pretty much what they are. Good news for all: they're unisex and come in both green and blue.

​Fancy Pants

When your social calendar calls for something a bit smarter than sleeping-bag pants, simply cancel your plans. Just kidding: Try Uniqlo's men's flat-front pants with the brand's signature Heattech fibers and a brushed interior for ultimate warmth and softness.

Heattech Stretch Slim Fit Flat Front Pants, $50, uniqlo.com.

​Faux Fur Vest

Whether you wear it under your coat or as a top layer, a faux fur vest is guaranteed to add panache, and all-important cozy warmth.

Shearling Coat

Yes, this coat is an investment. But it's also a classic piece that will never go out of style, and we swear it will keep you toastier than all your blankets at home.

Artistic Sweatshirt

We think we've found the platonic ideal of a sweatshirt: fuzzy inside, decorated with a charming illustration of Matisse in bed, using his extra long brush to paint on his ceiling (as he actually did!). A crew neck with a dash of culture, what's not to love?

​​Denim Jumpsuit

Layer thermals under a retro denim jumpsuit to keep extra warm (expert styling tip: roll up the sleeves so that the cuffs of the thermals poke out just a bit). Wearing a one-piece prevents chilly air from creeping in between your trousers and your top, and they're just really cute. Wear one with flat boots or sneakers for day, and heeled booties at night.

Madewell Denim Jumpsuit, $170, net-a-porter.com.

Dressy Sweatpants

These are sweatpants to be seen in. Slightly fitted with retro details, this gray marled version looks excellent with an oversize navy cashmere sweater and a swipe of red lipstick.
