Embrace The TikTok-Famous Cozy Girl Lifestyle With These Fashion Tips

The "cozy girl" aesthetic has become popular thanks to TikTok, where everyone from clothing brands like Garage to individual content creators has declared that they are now in their "cozy girl era." To translate this, think of low-maintenance, comfortable clothing styles that are perfect for colder weather but still stylish enough that you could, say, run errands without feeling as though you're woefully underdressed for the occasion. (If you have just rolled out of bed, we won't tell!)

Fortunately, the cozy look is totally on trend, and outlets such as the Daily Mail haven't hesitated to describe celebrities including Kaia Gerber as looking "cozy" as they've been snapped by the paparazzi this season. Now, we at Glam have rounded up some of the best fashion tips for living your best "cozy girl" life, combining looking and feeling great in, well, the coziest way possible. From head to toe, we've got you covered.

Opt for a pair of UGGs or similar boots

UGG boots have gone in and out of fashion over time, but the lined boots are back "in" and perfect as a "cozy girl" shoe option that can be worn in many weather conditions, not just the cold, snowy weather with which you might associate them.

Although World of Vegan notes that UGG brand boots are not vegan because of the materials from which they are made, there are many brands that have created similar styles of boots from materials that are vegan. World of Vegan specifically mentions some of the styles from the brand Bearpaw as being some of the best UGG alternatives on the market. In addition to their not being vegan, real UGG boots can also be cost-prohibitive. Luckily, it isn't necessary to have the brand as a status symbol to enter your "cozy girl era"; simply find a pair of boots that fit you and your perspectives.

Matching loungewear sets add some polish

Matching sets are going nowhere in the fashion world, and choosing a matching loungewear set is a great way to have an outfit at the ready for all your cozy needs. While Forbes notes that loungewear received a huge boost in popularity amid the lifestyle changes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, there are plenty of examples online showing the best of the best loungewear from 2022. The main takeaway is that loungewear, especially in neutral tones, is a versatile and fashionable option for just about everyone.

As People points out, even actor Hilary Duff has embraced this trend, snapping a selfie in a reddish-brown three-piece loungewear set. The great part about loungewear is that, no matter what your favorite brands or ideal price points happen to be, you're sure to find an easy and cozy way to hop on this trend while still feeling comfortable and like you haven't abandoned your personal sense of style.

Layer up with a shacket

Another wardrobe staple for you to live life to the coziest is the shacket. While the name might sound a little strange, it's a portmanteau describing an outerwear piece that is a combination of a shirt and a jacket. As fashion blogger Hang Nguyen told CNN, "A shacket is a crossover between a shirt and a jacket. It's usually a little oversized and looks like a shirt, but made from a heavier material."

The ease with which one can layer a shacket is one reason why these garments are so useful, and it seems that everyone is in agreement since this article of clothing only grows more popular. Take a look at all the different shacket options available and figure out which will make you feel the coziest in cooler weather, whether that's a popular plaid shacket or one that happens to bring an unexpected pop of color to your cozy outfit.

Fuzzy socks will keep your feet warm

If you're someone who gets cold feet easily (in a literal sense, not a figurative one), you probably already know how cozy it is to slip on a pair of fuzzy socks. As a must-have for colder weather regardless, fuzzy socks are also an easy addition to your "cozy girl" ensembles this season.

Whether you prefer ankle socks, knee-high socks, or a pair of socks with grips on the bottoms to keep you from slipping, no one is going to mind if you wear your fuzzy socks with even your nicest pair of shoes. Why? It's already been proven to be chic, of course. Footwear News reported that Bella Hadid has worn fuzzy socks with sneakers, but she's not the first to rock them. Countless celebs and everyday people alike are donning them, so you can rest assured in the knowledge that your feet will not only be warm but also in very fashionable company too.

Top it all off with a fuzzy bucket hat

We've already shared that fuzzy hats are a major trend for fall and winter, and the fuzzy bucket hat is the perfect one to incorporate into your "cozy girl" looks when you feel there's something missing from your outfit. But did you know that fuzzy hats will continue to be popular into 2023 as well?

If that isn't reason enough, you won't be the only one wearing the look. People reports that actor Megan Fox has worn a fuzzy bucket hat while out and about, proving that fuzzy bucket hats are not reserved solely for Gen Z. For some more inspiration, check out some of the bucket hats available for purchase. Levi's is selling its Wooly Bucket Hat in two different colors, while Revolve is selling the Addison Reversible Bucket Hat from Rag & Bone in three different colors. With options like these, you can have your style and serve it too!
