What to Wear for a Cozy, Comfortable, and Casual Holiday This Year

No matter how you celebrate the holiday season, we bet there will come a time in the weeks ahead where you just don’t quite feel like leaving the couch or your den, but duty calls, be it an impromptu gift-wrapping session or a visit from friends.

This is the kind of outfit you can wear around family or friends without looking like you just rolled out of bed — in fact, we’d wager more than one person in your group will envy your blend of comfort and fashion.
