Cozycomfycool: Cold-Weather Looks

Is there any amount of cozy that’s too cozy? When the weather gets cold, the answer is no. With athleisure feeling less like a trend these days and more like a paradigm shift, designers are putting comfort at the forefront of their fashion. It’s all the better for stacking clothes and taking coziness to the max. Try stepping out of the house wearing fuzzy socks—fuzzy shoes, even—and two jackets at the same time: a middle layering piece and an overcoat. Then you shall know the true meaning of cozy. Be inspired by these looks and layer up.

Our model here is Tay Sean, rapper and producer extraordinaire. If you don’t know him, his new album, Leavings, is outstanding experimental hip-hop. Dressing-wise, he has a unique style, so we met with him ahead of time in the store so he could help choose clothes from our men’s and men’s designer departments. His reaction:

“I didn’t realize Nordstrom had so much cool stuff.”

Check out our cozy looks below and our interview with Tay Sean about his music and personal style.

No magic required.
