How the holidays have snuck up on us like this, yet again, is beyond me. Every year, come December, I’m astounded by how time flies. It feels like I was just covering summer 2022’s hottest trends, like, yesterday. Personally, I could’ve indulged in spooky season for a bit longer, but in a blink of an eye, it’s come and gone. And alas, here we are — shopping for Christmas gifts and garb.

As usual, there are plenty of options on the market to choose from, so it should be easy to figure out what to wear on December 25th. Unfortunately, due to familial pressure, an unyielding desire for comfort, and the modern-day need to be camera-ready at all times, it’s not always that easy. Thankfully, I’m here — prepped and ready to alleviate your holiday struggle.

I’ve sourced cozy, vintage-inspired Fair Isle sweaters and festive loungewear sets that are perfect for dinner at grandma’s or just big chilling (AKA a full day dedicated to Elf, Home Alone, and The Holiday). So, whether you’re a classic jeans and sweater gal, are looking for the perfect sweats, or would prefer to get a little more dressed up, you have options, my friend.

Ahead, I found the best cozy-chic Christmas outfit ideas that are all shoppable now. Ahead, you’ll find more than 25 fabulous pieces to rock on the big day.


This chic plaid skirt can basically be worn from August to May — but the red check print makes it extra fun for Christmas day. It also has pockets, which I’m all about.


Fair Isle lovers, don’t sleep on this chunky knit.


Joggers are one of my favorite pant styles — especially when I’m consuming a big holiday dinner. You’d never guess this quilted pair is just as comfy as PJs.


Update your typical knit sweater with sparkling pearl embellishments for an elevated Christmas look.


Style this green turtleneck sweater with jeans, sequined sweats, or a matching skirt (as seen here). All are appropriate holiday choices.


Go a little glam without sacrificing comfort with this printed pajama-inspired set.


Buzzoms has a patented built-in bra in all of their styles. Even their fanciest slip dress, paired with a cozy cardigan, will keep you can be comfortable all day.


Want to amp up the festive vibes? Look no further than this snowflake-covered knit.


Offered in a wide variety of sizes, as well as a midnight blue color, this velvet top can be styled in endless ways (every one of them worthy of a holiday party).


I’m obsessed with this velour, satin-trimmed jumpsuit, due to the luxe, jewel tone. Plus, it’s offered in up to size 3X.


Level up your button-down game with this cozy-chic corduroy style. It’s polished and comfy, but not overly-kitschy.


This sweater is embroidered with a puppy snuggling a boot. That’s all that needs to be said.


Velour is back, y’all — and honestly one of my favorite fabrics for snowy days.


A romantic babydoll dress? It’s a ‘yes’ for literally all occasions.


Add a festive pop of color to any ‘fit with these flared velvet pants in foliage green.


For a little bit of spice, pair this cherry red satin top with leather pants.


Scarlet red Adidas trackies will never not be cool.


If you absolutely have to get dressed up, keep the comfort in a satin shirtdress.


If your Christmas activities involve drinking Irish coffee and watching It’s A Wonderful Life in your pjs, these are the one’s to do it in.


A rich tangerine feels skirt feels unexpected for the holidays, but paired with a crimson cardigan, it hits right in the sweet spot.


This fabric is the softest and coziest on the market (in my humble opinion), while the bandeau-style top and wide leg pants make the leisure wear look dressed-up.


If ‘ugly’ holiday sweaters aren’t your thing, red and green tartan button-ups are just as festive.


Style this shimmery metallic number with a shrug or cardigan and chunky boots to dress it down a bit.


Fashion brand Frankly specializes in braless bodysuits, so you can go braless even at the dinner table.


I’m a sucker for a good loungewear set, and this one has everything you need: A ribbed tank, soft leggings, and an stylish, oversize sweater.
