Comfort & Joy
Wide-leg satin pants and a chunky turtleneck look dressy and festive, but you’ll feel like you’re snuggled up on the sofa.
This outfit has comfy textures (velvet-dot top, cotton pants, furry scarf) with a tinsel-fringe bag that adds a dash of shimmer.
A draped velvet kimono, stretchy faux-leather leggings, and comfortable high heels mean you can actually chat, snack, stand, or dance all night.

Pretty in Pink
Yes, pink is totally winter-appropriate when paired with a mottled black sweater. And the skirt’s elastic waistband is truly a gift that keeps giving.
Slip a snow-white cardigan over a creamy satin slip dress for hygge-chic minimalism—then add pattern (snake-print heels) and sparkle (gold jewelry).
The metallic top is ready to party—and the classic trousers are ready for anything. Fuzzy mules are the next best thing to wearing your slippers.
