Fall is here and Thanksgiving is fast approaching, which means that all I want is to be cozy. Soft and warm clothing makes winter weather infinitely less brutal, so stocking up on basics to wear on repeat during the chilly months is key. And spending a lot on them is hardly necessary, which some of your favorite brands are here to prove this season. 

Among the staples that a cozy winter wardrobe consists of are sweaters, outerwear that involves faux fur or shearling, soft loungewear, and warm base layers, to name a few. And brands like H&M, Everlane, and our very own Who What Wear Collection have made finding cozy basics at affordable prices a reality. I selected the most expensive-looking options you can buy right now. They're guaranteed to elevate your entire winter wardrobe in an instant (and make you feel like you’re wrapped in a cloud), so let's shop…
