Top 6 winter fashion trends perfect for that Netflix & chill vibe
We can't stop shopping these cold-weather looks for cozying in or heading out.
This winter, we're seeing trends that work on the couch, the street or the patio (with heat lamps, of course). The main mood is comfort, so you'll see lots of cozy, oversized silhouettes. Mixing textures and prints can help add interest to yet another outfit made entirely of stretchy fabrics.
1. The coat that loves you back
You know that awful feeling when you have to leave the comfort of your bed to go outside on a blustery winter day? Coats this season are making the transition from inside to outside almost seamless, with oversized silhouettes that’ll sweep you up in a hug. Shearling continues to be a major trend too, along with the Insta-famous teddy coat.

2. The sleeves that go bold while you stay home
Statement sleeves are here to stay. We're seeing interesting tailored details, ruffles and color-blocked sleeves attached to sweaters and woven tops alike. Pair with some leather leggings to streamline the look. And don't forget to wave your arms around in your next Zoom meeting to show off the sleeves while making a point.

3. The sexy look for a low-key Saturday night
There were definitely days during quarantine when we felt more like a potato than a person, thanks to an endless rotation of sweats. This winter, we’re reclaiming our sensual side by pairing lacy camisoles and see-through shirts with cozy, oversized cardigans. Think of it as a compromise — you still get to lounge around, but you’ll feel a tad bit sexier doing so.
Pro tip: Pair a lace bodysuit with an oversized, fluffy coat for a perfectly balanced fit.

4. The shirt you borrowed from a boy and will never return
The fashion world is calling these oversized button-down shirts “shackets,” but sisters and possessive girlfriends have been rocking this trend for ages. The fit is loose, the buttons are left undone and overall we love that shirt jackets can elevate leggings and a tee or dress down a mini skirt and flashy tank.
Go for wool or cotton if possible, since shackets made of natural textiles only get better over time.

5. Necklines that make you look twice
We can’t stop thinking about asymmetrical and peek-a-boo necklines, both of which are huge trends this winter. They pack a visual punch for Zoom meetings, especially when paired with some dangly earrings. A sweater with an asymmetrical neckline is a perfect way to make a statement over the holidays, if you don’t feel like putting together a complicated outift.

Ribbed Twist-Front Sweater from Forever 21
6. The boots that clonk and stomp to the beat of your heart
We’re seeing platform boots everywhere this season, a sign that the ’70s trend isn’t going away anytime soon. And don’t be afraid to make some noise — half the fun of rocking clonkers is hearing your own footsteps echoing as you go.
