Home for the holidays? Ring in the season with cozy style

The party-hopping circuit might not be happening this season, but that’s not a reason to give up on festive fashion. Ditch dress codes from years past and make your own rules. Want to wear a glitzy frock with fuzzy slippers? Or dress up sweats with a sharp blazer and bling? Or mix and match cozy knits with delicious silks? It’s 2020 — go nuts.

Here, our favorite looks for a big night on the couch.

Shut-in shine

Just because we’re homebound doesn’t mean we can’t dress up. For the one who loves everything extra, a sequin dress finished in a relaxed silhouette is perfect for couch surfing while sipping on bubbly (go the additional mile with embellished accessories, why not?). And at a time when slippers have never felt more essential, this fuzzy-soled pair deserves a sock party to match.

Fits the chill

It’s safe to say that every item that falls under the athleisure category peaked in 2020 (sweatpants? hoodies? sneakers? Check, check, check). Comfort still reigns supreme, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be dressed up with a sharp blazer and some colorful bling. Go for chill in this look that’s fully fit to ring in the new year.

Knit-wit

If formalwear is your vibe, ’tis the season to embrace this season’s blissfully plentiful spins on chic with a relaxed twist: polo-inspired knits, silky midi-skirts and polished jewels (including revived riffs on classics, such as the tennis bracelet and gold hoop earring), finished with an easy-to-slip-on mule. She’s chic and yet cozy-cool.
