The school situation in 2020 has been, well, a bit of a mess. Okay, that’s the understatement of the year. And now “back-to-school,” if we can even still call it that, is here again — and there’s some controversy behind what parents, teachers, and kids are going to do. But whether you’ve decided to send your kids back in person, opted for a hybrid model, considered homeschooling or distance-learning full-time, whatever choice you make is the right one for your family (unless it involves not wearing a mask at the grocery store, in which case GTFO). That being said, since so many stores are still closed due to the coronavirus, back-to-school shopping is going to look a little different this year. That’s where Amazon steps in — with quick, easy ordering and returning, you can still get all the back-to-school clothes you need, minus having to wait for a fitting room or wade through racks of sale items to find your kid’s size.
Since it’s socially unacceptable to wear a Snuggie out in public (why, I’ll never know) the next best thing is clothes that are super comfy and cozy — so that whether your kiddo is leaving the house or not, they’ll feel like they’re wearing a blanket all day. The best (and worst) part of Amazon shopping, of course, is all the hundreds and hundreds of choices, so for those of us who have a hard time making decisions (*slowly raises hand*) we’ve narrowed the options down to the coziest back-to-school clothes from preschool to college. With these key pieces, your kid is guaranteed to be the most comfortable. Whether kids are roaming the halls of their school (in a mask, please!), killing it in a Zoom meeting or having “P.E.” in your backyard (aka weeding your garden for you), these super-soft clothes will suit them. After all, they’re basically pajamas.
From oversized cashmere sweaters and socks with a cult following to bold leggings and a sweater cape that would make Blair Waldorf jealous, here are the coziest back-to-school clothes for whenever your kid is leaving the house — or not.
