How to Look Comfy but Cute Year-Round
Cozy All Year Long
Winter has earned its rap as the coziest time of year—if you float through January on a cloud of soft sweaters, you’re doing it right. But don’t let the first signs of spring cramp your cozy. Keep the vibes rolling all.year.long by swapping knee-length puffers for chic bombers, trading all-weather boots for booties and beyond, and letting seasonally appropriate prints ground your look in whatever time of year it really is—even if you’re living the cozy mindset 24/7, 365 days a year.
Winter’s goal: Be warm, look cool. Chilly forecasts call for serious layers (the sartorial equivalent of snuggling up in a fortress of blankets). Doubling (or even tripling) up on layers gives dresses longer mileage and adds insulation under loose sweaters. Plus, it’s another way to work playful pattern combos like plaid over fair isle.
So the groundhog didn’t see his shadow, but you might not be quite ready to ditch the coat. Your go-to winter topper takes on fresh new meaning when paired with a knit dress in the same color scheme (hellooo transitional dressing). And if a fuzzy coat wasn’t cozy enough on its own? Spring’s coziest sandals are lined in shearling (hellooo Tevas we’re gonna live in).
Staying cozy in summer is more about a state of mind than turning up the heat. Where less is more, dressing is effortless, and the good times just keep on coming (our collective objective: Hot Girl Summer 2.0). An athletic set in a subtle, all-over print makes for an instant outfit, while a light sherpa adds texture and warmth when you’re ducking in and out of air-conditioning.
Crisp fall days that could see you bouncing from school drop to work thing to soccer game call for unfussy outfits with all-day wear in mind. A super-warm puffer counters a floral dress (aka how to recycle your summer wedding garb) for a look that’s both effortless and tied together.
