Fall is finally here, which means irresistible-smelling candles will soon cover every surface in your house and Trader Joe’s will be your second home while you grab all their seasonal pumpkin products. It’s time to prepare for
living our best lives hibernation szn with the glow of Netflix, the aroma of Thai takeout, and the feeling of comfy af sweaters. So long are the days where you’d slip on the same dress and pair of shorts week after week. It’s now time to embrace the same five sweaters and leggings you’ll rotate through every week instead. In case your closet is looking rather bleak in this regard, ASOS, as per usual, has your back. ASOS is currently hosting a 20% off cold weather sale that has exactly what it sounds like: everything you need for the chillier temps. From faux fur coats and sock booties to oversize scarves and chunky sweaters, you’ll find loading up your cart a breeze. Really, the hardest part will be whittling down your cart so you don’t spend $1,000. Since there are a bajillion amazing items to look through, I’ve done you a favor and picked out the best. Here’s everything you should shop right now from the ASOS cold weather sale.
Faux fur coats are making a comeback this fall and winter, yet again. Expect to see thrift shops packed with hipsters just waiting to grab a bougie-looking one like this style. Not only are they obviously hella warm, but they also make you look like hot B-list celeb as you wait to go inside the clubs.
First of all, is it just me or is the name of this top like, really hard to say? Talk about a tongue twister. Anyway, not all comfy sweaters have to make you look like a Midwest soccer mom. You can spice things up and stay looking both trendy and warm with a open-back jersey top like this one. Dress it up with jeans and sexy booties, or keep it low-key and casual with high-waisted leggings and your fave Adidas sneaker.
You can’t survive fall (emotionally, mentally, and physically) without owning a pair of black boots. Everyone in the English-speaking world knows that, tbh. This pair comes with a totally walkable three-inch block heel covered in a faux suede finish and it’s literally less than $40. I mean, what’s not to like?
For the (rare) nights you’re not hitting up the bar, you’ll need a casual and neutral coat to get you to and from the office, dinner dates, grocery store, and everything in between. A duster or trench coat is perfect for fall because it’s not overbearingly hot, but keeps you looking chic and warm on chilly nights.
I can’t go through the ASOS cold weather sale without including a pair of basic black leggings. It doesn’t matter if you already own hundreds of leggings that look exactly the same—you can always use one more. Don’t worry, I understand you. You’ll always need another and it’s not like you’re not going to wear them, duh.
You need all of the sweaters. ALL OF THEM. Even if they’re all the same style, but in different colors, you won’t regret stocking up because I promise you, you’ll find yourself basically living in them for the next six months. High neck, mock neck, cowl, turtle… same cozy sh*t. You’ll also find yourself wanting everything in this burnt orange color.
These things are so soft, warm, and versatile that you can literally wear anything with them. Why opt for one neutral color when you can combine two of the hottest shades of fall? This color-blocked style comes in a cream and beige that perf for throwing over your shoulders during your chilly morning commute.

The puffer jacket trend is literally the greatest thing of all time. You basically just get to wrap yourself in a sleeping bag and then go out in public as if that’s socially acceptable. The only downfall is that these coats will make you look fucking massive, especially when paired with chunky sweaters and blanket scarves. Here are a few that won’t make you look like a human marshmallow.
1. Urban Outfitters Silence + Noise Classic Puffer Jacket
This puffer is hip-length, which is usually problematic in terms of avoiding looking like the Michelin Man. However, the hem is both notched and adjustable, so it’s like, way more flattering.
2. Madewell Quilted Down Puffer Parka
The wide puff panels (is that a thing?) and interior waist cincher on this Madewell parka will allow you to pull off the puffer trend without looking enormous. Now you’ll have to blame other things, like your Chipotle obsession.
3. Lululemon Brave The Cold Jacket
Okay, so the puffer jacket trend is supposed to be giant puffy coats, but if you’re really not down for that, this one is close enough. The puffs are way smaller because they’re stuffed with lightweight goose down.
4. Topshop Long Puffer Jacket
Most puffer jackets have panels with horizontal stitching, which can be super unflattering if you are anyone besides Kendall Jenner. Luckily, this one also has a few slimming puff panels (I’m just leaning in) to help the cause.
5. Barbour International Rockingham Quilted Jacket
The slanted pockets and asymmetrical zipper are basically optical illusions. You’ll look more like a bitchy teen snow bunny in an ABC Family movie (I know it’s called Freeform now, hop off) than a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade float.
It’s about that time of year when it’s officially cold as fuck. The struggle of wanting to look like the perfect balance of cute and slutty (while staying warm at the same time) is all too real. And obviously, once I’m home for night, there’s no going back. Boot and rallies are 100 percent for times when the weather is at least 70 degrees. As someone from upstate New York, I thought I was mentally prepared, but like every year, I most definitely am not. I somehow convince myself that I’m going to die of hyperthermia on my 10 minute walk to the train every morning. It’s fine though, I’ve already accepted my fate for the next few months. And by fate, I mean jeopardizing my appearance to dress as though I have no idea wtf fashion is. So long smooth, pin-straight hair, semi-revealing blouses, and block heels. Hello hat hair, prude turtleneck sweaters, and insulated boots. Scarves, gloves, and some form of hat are v essential to surviving the season (on the east coast, that is) so whether you’re a hat person or not, here are five hats to keep you from freezing this winter.
1. Hat Attack Chunky Rib Beanie With Snap Off Faux Fur Pom
Beanies are probs the most basic yet easiest style to pull off. Add a faux fur pom and you look like a cute ski bunny who literally knows nothing about skiing, but your latest Hinge boy def doesn’t need to know that. Agree to the adventurous date, but whatever you do, don’t actually hit the slopes and risk falling on your ass.
2. Hat Attack Wool Beret
In honor of the rising 2018 trends, get a head start by sporting a chic French-style beret this winter. Hat Attack, who has the cutest effing hats, takes the classic look and adds a slouch fit to keep it low-key and trendy. It’s all made out of wool, so both your head and ears will steer clear of going numb.
3. Shop Betches 99% Dry Shampoo Beanie
If you want to keep things simple because you literally will only be wearing a hat three months out of the entire year, obvs choose an all-black beanie. You can wear it with your hangover outfit and totally use it to your advantage if you’re too lazy to wash your hair (uh, hi) and let everyone know it. The slouchy knit beanie folds to your liking so you don’t have to look like you’re about to mug somebody with this.
4. UGG Classic Wired Shearling Earmuffs
Yes, Uggs are sooo 2004, but they’re fucking comfortable af and cost like, hundreds of dollars so don’t expect me (or any other sane person) to toss them that quickly. For something super soft, cozy, and warm, pair these Ugg earmuffs with your favorite boots. They totally prevent hat hair (bless), and allow you to listen to your morning Spotify via an aux cord.
5. L. Erickson Convertible Cable Knit Cashmere Head Wrap
If neither earmuffs nor full-coverage hats are your thing, you can’t go wrong with a sophisticated cashmere head wrap. Your ears are definitely shielded from the cold, and your hair stays frizz-free and in place. Switch up the knot—or don’t, whatever—to change it from a bandeau to a classy turban.
