4. Oversized sweaters: An oversized sweater is a great way to stay comfy but still look fashionable this winter. This One Button Cardigan Sweater from Victoria’s Secret retails for $79.50. It comes in four neutral colors, which you can pair with a variety of items including a top with leggings or skinny jeans or over a dress for a more layered look. Photo:

5. Leggings: They’re a great thing. Let’s face it ladies, they’re much more comfortable than pants. But that’s just it—they’re not pants! Pair them under a dress or oversized sweater and you’ve got a great winter ensemble. Look for thicker fabrics like cotton as opposed to a thinner, tight-style stocking that will help keep you warm. Try a pair of these fun velvet ones from H&M for only $17.95 for a dressier holiday look. Photo:

2. Festive pants: Try out something other than the standard jeans or khakis this winter. These satin men’s pants from H&M will be great for holiday parties or going out for date night. And at only $29.95, you can afford to give them a try! Available in-store and online in green and black. Photo:

3. Flannel: Layering is in, fellas! Mix this must-have flannel shirt with a number of items like a neutral sweater, military jacket or throw a graphic tee underneath and you’ve got yourself an effortless but fashionable winter look. This J.Crew herringbone plaid flannel comes in a few different colors including chili powder (seen here) and retails for $79.50. Photo:

4. The not-so-ugly holiday sweater: A print sweater is a definite go-to this holiday season. With a pair of jeans, it’s a great look for class.
