There's a time and place when looking put-together is the utmost priority, but winter isn't one of them. Sure, knitwear has evolved to the point where you don't necessarily have to choose between aesthetics and functionality, but right now, my primary concern is ply-count and fabric composition. Between commuting on the subway and fun weekend activities, the goal is to stay as warm as possible. Let's just say that cozy season is in full effect.

A few things to keep in mind when shopping for clothes that will block out the freeze: You want to pay attention to materials like wool and cashmere, as well as woven fabrics. Both are effective insulators that help contain body heat for maximum coziness. But besides the items below being superior at retaining the warmth, they're also just chic. From sweaters and dresses to socks and fleece-lined footwear, keep scrolling to shop all of the soft and cozy fashion finds in my cart now.

Fashion Market Editor

Indya Brown is a fashion editor, stylist, and writer living in Los Angeles. While going to school at Columbia University in New York City, she got her feet wet in the fashion industry interning at Elle magazine, Harper's Bazaar, and New York magazine's The Cut. After graduating in 2016, she joined The Cut as a fashion assistant, eventually working her way up to fashion editor. There, she worked on a multitude of projects, including styling inbook feature stories for New York magazine's print issue, writing and pitching market stories for The Cut, and serving as fashion lead for The Cut's branded content. While New York has been her home for over 10 years, she moved to Los Angeles in the midst of the pandemic in 2020 for a new chapter. Now she is a fashion market editor for Who What Wear, focusing on emerging designers, rising trends on and off the internet, interior design, and BIPOC creatives and brands. Aside from her duties as a fashion market editor, Brown is also a freelance stylist and writer, working on national print and video commercial campaigns for Sephora, The Independent, and Cadillac. Her bylines also include Harper's Bazaar, Vox, and The New York Times. But once the computer goes down and the emails turn off, she's likely eating her way through Koreatown, hunting down vintage furniture, scoping out new outrageous nail designs to try, or taking a hot cycling class.
