When it鈥檚 cold outside, there鈥檚 nothing better than loading on the layers and curling up with a warm mug of cider (and maybe even a freshly baked pastry or two). Unfortunately, with busy schedules and full social calendars, kickin鈥 it at home isn鈥檛 always an option. That means pulling together an actual outfit, because sweats just aren鈥檛 going to (always) cut it. That鈥檚 the beauty of pieces like chunky knits, denim, wraps and joggers; they鈥檙e crazy cozy, and with a few simple tweaks, perfectly chic. Insta is bursting at the seams with #OOTDs with a comfy edge, so we鈥檙e serving up some of our favorites below for the next time you need a little sartorial boost.

Rock it over flared or wide-leg denim for a relaxed, but totally enviable ensemble. Mix in a luxe backpack, classic fedora and richly hued pair of patent ankle boots for a fab finish.

It鈥檒l instantly take just-your-average separates into street style star territory. To play into those comfy vibes, opt for faux fur, shearling or textured fabric styles.

5. @shallwesasa: Say 鈥渨hatevs鈥 to stuffy, stiff office attire, because pulled-together no longer means suits and matching sets. Get your polish on with chunky knits, streamlined skirts or cropped trousers and #girlboss heels. (Photo via @shallwesasa)
