As much as this pains us to say, we’ve now been living through a pandemic for more than six months. We have sheltered in place through cold and warm weather, and now, as it does each year, it’s going to get cold again.
On the bright side, we’re more prepared this time around. Cozy clothes have reigned supreme in 2020. Matching sets fly off the shelves, stretchy leggings have (largely) replaced stiff denim, and comfort has become a priority in our homes and shopping carts.
As temperatures cool down, we’ve sourced the coziest clothes approved by our editors and readers alike. There are slippers, eye masks, sweatsuits and more ― everything you need for a night (or rather, nights) on the couch.
Below, 16 of the coziest things we’ve bought while staying at home.

Nasty Gal Something About You Knitted Shorts Lounge Set
Fanture Women’s Furry Faux Fur Slippers
Summersalt The Softest French Terry Jogger and The Softest French Terry Pullover
Cuup Highwaist Bottom
“During quarantine, a big goal of mine was to find comfortable underwear that I could basically barely feel while I sit around in the house all day. I first fell in love with Tommy John, but after a while they begin to show wear. Then CUUP came along with their ultra-smooth and soft briefs that don’t cut off my thigh meat nor press into my stomach (I love a high rise). I have one in every color they make — and I also find that the seams/cut make my butt look good.” — Chanel Parks, writer in New York City
Old Navy Vintage Crew-Neck Sweatshirt and Mid-Rise Tapered-Leg Jogger
Suunday The Dolman Dress
“I think I could live in this dress. It’s incredibly soft, doesn’t pinch or pull, and even though it’s a lounge dress, you can easily wear it out and look put together. Overall, one of my favorite things.” — Taneisha Kirchner, senior product designer at HuffPost
“I had been wanting a Haptic Lab quilt coat for a long time and was able to cop one during their sample sale in peak quarantine! It is basically like wearing an elevated blanket — cozy AND chic.” — Alex Meltzer, reader in New York City
“Since March, I’ve been trying to find ways to make my stay at home as spa-like as possible — while also on a budget. My bedroom faces a well-lit NYC street, so I wanted to find a sleep mask to block out light, but also wanted to find something with added benefits and to actually feel good! This silk mask not only feels like I’m sleeping on clouds, but the softness of the silk and its large size makes it perfect for keeping my nighttime skin products from rubbing off onto my pillows.” — Kyna Doles, front page editor at HuffPost
“All I wear is the Softwear brand. The founder is a dope chick from Brooklyn, and their clothes are made sustainably in the United States. They are literally as soft as clouds!” — Kristie Alicea, fitness specialist in New York City
“I hate the phrase ‘tummy control,’ but these are the softest leggings. I bought three pairs and wear them all the time. They make me feel like I’m getting ‘dressed’ — but I am not.” — Lindsay Holmes, senior wellness editor at HuffPost
“This tie-dye sweatsuit from an Instagram company that donates 20% of each order to COVID relief efforts! It is so soft and so cozy. I am so happy when I wear it and it’s received tons of compliments!” — Maya Spitalnik, teacher in New York City
Old Navy Oversized Plaid Flannel Boyfriend Tunic Shirt
“The last time I bought a flannel shirt, it was the early 1990s and it was entirely appropriate — I swear. Since then, my grunge wardrobe has felt like some kind of misguided youth fever dream. But alas in these times, I’ve rediscovered a thick plaid weave. Holed up in my house, doom scrolling through another nice fall day when the world is falling apart, nothing seems to suit me more. This one from Old Navy isn’t too pricey, and it’s oversized, to pair with whatever soft pants are clean that day.” — Emily Peck, senior reporter at HuffPost
