Where to Find Cozy Sweaters

Don’t let the sun in these pictures fool you. As with much of the country, it has been terribly cold here in Northern Virginia. I think the temperature was around 10 degrees when we were taking these pictures! Definitely colder than your typical winter day in Virginia. With the cold temperatures continuing through the weekend, I have been reaching for my warmest sweaters. It got me thinking, what stores are my go-to for finding cozy and warm sweaters? Today I am sharing where I have been finding reasonably priced, trendy and warm sweaters this winter.

Love Affair with Zara

There is no question that Nordstrom and J.Crew are two of my favorite stores. I love the wide variety Nordstrom has to offer and J.Crew’s preppy and more conservative styles. And although my style would be classified more as classic and preppy, I do like incorporating trendy pieces into my wardrobe. One of my new favorite stores for trendy pieces is Zara. As I mentioned in this post, Zara is a store that I always seem to forget about. The majority of their pants and dresses are too short for me, but I have always had luck with their jackets, sweaters and tops. You may remember me raving about this hot pink sweater with faux fur pockets in this post a few weeks ago.

Cozy & Warm Winter Sweaters

I bought three sweaters from Zara back in November and these are some of my favorite sweaters I have purchased in awhile. Not only are they cute, on-trend and different from what you find at Nordstrom or J.Crew, but they are WARM! I always love a good oversized sweater or top and Zara has quite the selection. Most of all, the prices are reasonable. That is one pet peeve of mine: I hate expensive trendy items! I would much rather spend money on an expensive classic piece that will still be in style in a few years instead of a trendy item that can only be worn this season.
For this look, I paired this cute "blonde" sweater with my go-to black skinny jeans, warm beanie and snow boots. I received these snow boots a few years ago for Christmas. They truly are the trifecta: cute, comfortable and warm. And I cannot believe how many opportunities I have had to wear them.  Especially in Virginia!

Zara Sale

With all that being said, Zara has a huge sale each year beginning on December 26th that is still going on, so the selection might be a little picked over. The good thing is that new stock is added frequently (another thing to love!) so keep checking back. One more thing to note: I should mention that this post is in no way sponsored by Zara. They do not even offer affiliate links! I just wanted to share a brand that I am loving that is perfect for trendy, affordable (and warm!) pieces.
What are your feelings about Zara? Are you new to Zara or are you a frequent buyer? Do tell! Thanks for reading, friends, and have a great rest of the week and weekend!
