Sponsored by Vuori and Collective Voice
Listen, I know Vuori excels in performance apparel – they have all the top quality items to get us moving and grooving and getting a good sweat on – but can we talk about their cozy, lifestyle options for a minute? Because those luxe, cuddly pieces are arguably my most favorite from the whole brand (and we all know I live for this brand).
The Best Cozy Gifts To Give This Season (Even To Yourself!)
Vuori recently launched their Holiday Gift Guides and it makes shopping their clothing even more enjoyable. My favorite category is, naturally, Vuori’s Cozy Gifts (but that Active Gifts section runs a close second!).
Honestly, it’s ridiculously hard to choose from the items Vuori assembled in the Cozy Gifts category. All of the options would make extra special gifts to your mom, sister, or best friend, but at the same time would be epic additions to your own holiday wishlist, too.
PS – the Men’s Gift Guides are seriously good, too, and the best place to start for all of the men in your life!
To help you sort through the catalog, I wanted to highlight 5 of my personal cozy favorites. As someone who’s been living life in Vuori clothing for many years, I have opinions, and absolutely prefer a few fits and styles above the rest. So while you’re shopping for loved ones (and hello, don’t forget yourself), might I suggest you start here: these cozy joggers & top layers below are, without a doubt, some of the best items for the gift-giving-season!
Get These Before They Sell Out (Again): Vuori’s Sedona Joggers + Cozy Sherpa Jacket
If you have yet to try Vuori’s Sedona line, please put it next on your list.
The Sedona Joggers are one of those pieces I want to wear for the rest of my life. I consider them to feel and wear like sweatpants – but like, the best sweatpants I’ve ever worn.
The silhouette of these pants is very similar to Vuori’s Boyfriend Jogger (another fave of mine) but with a very different feel. The super soft brushed fabric feels like a mixture between velvet and fleece, yet the entire pant wears very lightweight. It’s this magical combo that makes me want to curl up next to a fireplace, while also feeling bouncy and free enough to go knock out all my errands. That’s probably the reason I want to wear them 24/7.
Sizing notes: I personally find the joggers to run big. I’m wearing a medium, my typical size, but cinch the hidden drawstring (it’s on the inside!) all the way for my ideal fit. I personally prefer this over having fitted sweatpants, but if you’re in-between sizes I would recommend sizing down!
If we’re talking about Vuori’s Sedona Joggers being the softest pants, then we also have to discuss the jacket that gets my vote for the softest top layer, because the Cozy Sherpa Jacket is easily the softest sherpa around.
The Cozy Sherpa is made with over 70% recycled materials, and is my favorite grab for when the winter ocean breeze starts whipping. It’s ultra plush, extra roomy, and my favorite part is the snap closure that hides the zipper. The whole jacket has a very minimalistic quality about it that balances out the cushy, teddy-bear-look in the most chic of ways.
Sizing notes: I have tried both a medium and large in this jacket, but as someone who is taller, I prefer the large as this is a cropped fit.
Better Than The Competition: Vuori’s Restore Half Zip Hoodie
Half-zip sweaters and sweatshirts are popular in a big way, and there are a handful of similar styles to choose from on the market. But I promise you, Vuori’s Restore Half Zip Hoodie is actually the best.
Made with a thick, cozy cotton, this sweatshirt is the most comfortable thing to grab for the dark winter season. The hood is extra big, which is a must-have in my book, and actually stays on when I want to cuddle up inside of it.
The best (and most important) part? The hood and collar sit in place so I don’t feel choked when I’m wearing the sweatshirt (something not every brand gets right).
The sleeves are long enough for my tall frame but don’t feel like they get in the way, either. The sweatshirt has a straight, boxy fit, which Vuori has become quite known for, and while it has a fantastic bottom rib hem, it isn’t tight or restricting, which I much prefer as someone with a wider/straight mid section.
Sizing notes: I’m wearing a large, my go-to for comfort hoodies, but I could have taken a medium if I wanted a little less room in the body.
The Perfect Lounging Layers: Vuori’s Slouchy Waffle Crew + Boyfriend Joggers
Vuori’s Slouchy Waffle Crew is the newest addition to my wardrobe and I was so excited when I first saw them launch it. This is just the kind of swingy, comfort top I am always looking for when I’m chilly, and right away when I first tried it on I knew I was in love (my actual first thought was “do I need this in more colors..?!”)
The extra low dropped hem on the sleeves is one of the best parts of the Slouchy Waffle Crew. It not only makes the top plenty roomy for my broad shoulders (and any shoulder frame, for that matter), but it’s the type of design detail that makes a top visually laid-back and casual in the most cozy of ways.
Paired with Vuori’s Boyfriend Joggers (made from their famous DreamKnit™ material and my personal top choice of their whole DreamKnit™ catalog), this outfit is one I want to wear from sun up to sun down and straight into bed. It’s my go-to choice for catching winter sunsets on the beach, and you best believe I’ll be packing the duo in my bags for Christmas travel!
Thank you to Vuori for sponsoring this post! So many of your pieces are my wardrobe staples, but the cozy items you offer in the fall/winter might just take the cake. And to our readers – thank you so much for the continued support, love you all!
