I live in Minnesota, which means that I know the importance of staying cozy in the fall and winter. Many people overlook one of the prime resources for a comfy winter: flannel pajamas. Especially if you’re working from home this year, finding a pair of comfy pajamas that keep you warm is a must.
Flannel pajamas are perfect for lounging around the house and getting cozy with your boo. They’re great for keeping you toasty during the cold winter nights. And they’re absolutely perfect for the business on top party on the bottom lifestyle.

Sometimes clothing that is practical doesn’t look very cute. These flannel pajamas manage to be both: they come in multiple colors so you can pick your favorite fall time look, but they’re also so warm and soft. They have a loose fit so you’re always comfy and can curl up any which way while you stay warm.
I can’t deny that one of my favorite experiences is stealing my husband’s sweatpants and getting swallowed up in the comfy cozy fabric. If you’re like me, you can get the same experience without yoinking from your significant other: these men’s pants are great if you love an oversized fit that is comfortable and has reasonably sized pockets.
This set of pajamas is incredibly popular and it’s no question why: you can wear them for years without them wearing out. With flannel that can be a tall order, but these babies really hold up. It’s a medium weight flannel, so if you need a bit of warmth but don’t want to sweat it out all winter, it’s just about perfect.
I’m personally not a fan of sleeping in long sleeves, and flannel pajama sets tend to come with full coverage. That’s why I love the option I get with these PJ pants: I still have the warmth and coziness of flannel, but I can throw on a t-shirt on top for maximum comfort. Plus they have some incredibly cute patterns, like puppies, cats, or stars.
For some reason, flannel is inextricably linked with plaid. If you’re not a huge fan of plaid, this pajama set may be right for you: while the bottoms have patterns (including plaid), the top is a single color shirt. I tend to mix and match my PJs and this gives me more options.
Most flannels tend to come in bright, bold colors. If that’s not really your jam, these pastel PJs are a great bet. They’re wildly soft, and have a comfy front pocket and thumbholes (which are the greatest thing ever). It’s a different look from most flannel pajamas, but I love it.
Ok so these PJs are not technically fleece, but they are a close cousin: microfleece. If you’re not the hugest fan of flannel, microfleece keeps you warm but is nice and breathable so that you don’t end up sweaty. One of my favorite things about this set is that it also comes with socks. If you don’t know the importance of thick winter socks, you have not lived through a Minnesota winter. You want them for sure.
PajamaGram is a brand that sells (you guessed it) pajamas, and they consistently get extremely high ratings. They have a truly impressive pajama game. These pet lover pajamas are well made, so very soft, and incredibly cute. Plus they have adorable cats and dogs.
One of my favorite things about pajamas is that you can wear patterns that would not be allowed for adult humans out in the world. If you’re a pattern lover like I am, these Twin Boat pajamas have got some great options for you. Constellations, mandalas, stripes, polka dots: so many fun options.
