Now that shopping for others is over, now you can snag these cozy items for yourself while they are on sale…

‘Lux’ is the modern take on what used to be deemed luxury items, but with more affordable materials, and a little more glam than the stuffy style of mid-century times. Combined with the continued trend of cozy and comfortable, lux items are making their way into everyday outfits.

I know as a busy mom low maintenance is key to your lifestyle, so I’ve pull together a list of recommendations that will keep you on trend.  Look out for sales on these or similar items in the upcoming weeks.

Fur Stole

Once an indication of wealth in post war times, because they were made of animal skins, this rich accessory has been revamped with acrylic materials that look and feel like the luxurious items of decades prior but at affordable prices.  They are the new scarf and are slowly taking over the blanket scarf trend.

Fuzzy Outerwear

Thread & Supply is the brand that has made the Instagram feeds of the biggest style influencers, and is available at Nordstrom. These can be used in warmer climates as an outwear option, and layered with a vest or down coat in much colder climates.

Eyelash Sweater

While cardigans and everyday sweaters have always been the everyday go to: this year the softer the better. The latest trend is ‘eyelash’ sweaters. These super soft and fuzzy sweaters have extra length on their yard/knit and look very similar to the Angora sweaters that were once popular, but more animal friendly and at extremely affordable prices.  Treat yourself to one of these cozy finds.  If you are a teacher, or your work at your desk, it is the best option for those chilly office temps. Also, it’s an amazing outer layer for those cold mornings if you have to drop off kids at school – Just wear under a down coat on those unbearable icy mornings.

Soft Joggers

Joggers started coming back last year, but they were your basic kind.  This year, soft fabrics and cozy knits have made them even more enjoyable to wear, and a must have for a busy mom.  These are very nice alternative for for those who are addicted to leggings.  Same comfort, but a more cozy option.

Don’t forget to accessorize well with any of these options, as the shoes, bag, and jewelry can take a cozy outfit from drab to fab.  Follow my Instagram for outfit ideas, or check out some of the accounts that I follow for outfit inspiration.
