Cuffing Season Is Coming—These 29 Pieces Are Weirdly Both Cozy and Sexy

One of the great challenges fashion girls face every fall and winter is the dilemma of choosing an outfit that's warm and comfortable or one that makes you feel your best. When temperatures drop, it's a constant struggle between the two, as it's pretty hard to build an outfit that does both. To look cute or be warm—that is the question.

Fall and winter are cheekily known as "cuffing season," but it's my feeling that regardless of whether you're in a relationship, you always want to feel your best. Luckily, through my extensive searching, I've found a few miracle pieces that actually check both boxes—sartorial unicorns, if you will. Below, I've highlighted the 29 fall styles that are somehow both cozy and sexy at the same time so that this year, you don't have to choose.
