11 Cozy Outfits Perfect for Ringing in the New Year from Your Couch

Staying home on NYE doesn't mean you can't get festive.

We have mixed feelings about New Year’s Eve. On one hand, getting all dressed up in sequins, splashing sparkles across our eyelids, and hitting the town with friends is a blast. Getting caught in traffic, overpaying for food and drinks, and letting our bare legs freeze in the winter air? Not so much. So, staying home when the ball drops on New Year’s Eve doesn’t sound too bad this year, especially considering COVID-19.

Aside from being the safe and right thing to do in 2020, spending New Year’s Eve at home is less expensive, less effort, and lower-stakes—which often means more fun. This year, our New Year’s Eve party guest list includes our pets, chocolate bars, and several bottles of champagne—and we’re totally fine with it. But just because we’re staying in doesn’t mean we can’t dress up for the occasion. And by dress up, we mean trade our leggings and T-shirts for super-stylish pajamas and loungewear.

This way, we’ll be toasting champagne flutes to our TVs as the ball drops, and be tucked into bed by 12:05 a.m.

In order to have this gloriously low-key New Year’s Eve, we need to wear the coziest outfits possible while finally saying goodbye to 2020. To help you sleep like a baby after the clock strikes midnight, we rounded up the coziest outfits to spend all night in (and possibly all of New Year’s Day, too—no judgment.) Some sets are on the pricey end, but they make for perfect Christmas presents that you’ll get tons of wear out of. Check out our top picks below.
