As a child-free adult, I readily admit that I don’t actually know how snow days work anymore. Are they even a thing, with distance learning? Do they still make those plastic snow brick molds that are essential for kids’ front yard fort-building?
What I do know is that for grown ups, a snow day anti-climactically announces itself in a routine, bleary-eyed email check on your phone before pulling yourself out of bed.
Or, when it’s your business, peeking out the window and thinking ‘Oh hell no I am not leaving the house today” and sending that email yourself.
If you’ve found yourself in the snow day zone, our team pulled together some hygge-happy must-haves for staying warm and dry in style.
Below, a men’s winter style guide with 10 men’s cozy style essentials:
1. Uniqlo, $70
SG Says: To be worn while shoveling and picking up coffee to (hopefully) sip by a warm fire.
2. Sorel, $170
SG Says: A pull-on boot means getting them off nice and easy when you’re ready to come back inside.

This pair from Sorel will keep your toes cozy and look pretty cool to boot (lol).
SG Says: You already know a matching sweatsuit is one of Team SG’s must-have trends for guys in 2022.
This set from Olivers checks off so many cozy style boxes.
Crafted with uber-soft Japanese Supima cotton, the Classic sweatshirt and sweatpants are inspired by vintage athletic gear for a throwback feel, but slimmed down for a wear-anywhere vibe.
SG Says: Slip-ons are perfect for tooling around the house on a day you don’t quite know what to do with yourself.
5. Amazon, $19
SG Says: Okay, so chugging water isn’t exactly a cozy style pick for guys, but it is a cold weather must-have for looking and feeling your best.

It’s almost passé to have one of these massive bicep curl-worthy water bottles at this point, but hey, they’re popular for a reason!
SG Says: A snow day is the perfect time to perfect your winter skincare routine.
Or, you know, finally start one.
SG Says: Hello-o-o-o-o athleisure!
This is your time. Now is your moment.
Make the most of it.
8. J. Crew, $12
SG Says: No idea why, but it’s impossible to find camp socks after Christmas. We found these on J. Crew and they look cozy af.
9. Quoddy, $199
SG Says: No roundup of cozy style for men must-haves is complete without a pair of indoor-outdoor moccasins.
These, from Quoddy, will do you right as you pad from the living room to the kitchen for more hot cocoa. Then, down the stairs to pick up the Chinese food from the delivery guy who can’t leave his bike too long (don’t forget to tip him well!).
SG Says: Beanies are essentially indoor-outdoor headwear at this point. Treat yourself to a good one, like this cashmere pick available at Mr Porter.
Use your next snow day to book a personal styling session with Team SG!
