I’ll be honest: I first heard about Cuddl Duds a few years ago when I was contacted to try out the brand’s “amazing” thermal fleecewear.

Before you spend your hard earned money, read this Cuddl Duds review FIRST! Is this fleecewear truly extra-soft and the ultimate layering piece? I bought a few pairs of Cuddl Duds "warm and cozy" pieces and wore them in Alaska. Read my honest review here!

As a lady living in Alaska (of all places) who could hardly keep warm, I jumped on the opportunity. Warm clothes and squat-proof leggings with moisture-wicking features are my ultimate guilty pleasure.

Speaking of leggings, I hope you’re not tired of seeing these Zella High Waist Leggings. Because I have this outfit styled with them again.

Talk about getting the most wear out of your clothes‍. The Zella High Waist Leggings are so comfy that I often wear them. It’s like comfort food for your skin, haha. You can read my Zella leggings review here.

For reference, I wear a size XS or S (US 4) and weigh about 130 pounds.

I have four six pairs of Cuddl Duds. One pair of pants fit a little too snug for my liking, but the others are a perfect fit. Maybe there was a defect or something.

This was a beautiful fall day. The leaves were starting to change colors, but some areas, like where I shot this outfit, were still enjoying the tail end of summer.

I think the black and grey pieces are a nice contrast to the colorful landscape behind me.

The fleecewear top, these figure-sculpting leggings with a no-slip waistband, and a faux fur scarf (since the one I’m wearing is currently unavailable, I found a similar option for you) were the right amount of layering I needed to withstand the mild cold.

This fleecewear and leggings combination, without the faux fur, is an outfit you can wear daily to run errands and go grocery shopping.

The faux fur (similar option) elevates the entire ensemble, adding a touch of “bougie-ness” to the look.

My tassel oxford loafers (similar) are chic and comfortable. They do not have a thick cushion footbed. Interestingly, I don’t have any issues walking or standing in them for an extended period of time.

Given the style of shoes, I broke into them quickly and easily. However, the loafers make a sound when walking on hard surfaces. If you arrive late to work, this might not be the attention you want to get.

The pompom details (similar) are a lovely touch that moves elegantly with each footstep. You might not be able to see from the photo, but they are made from suede with a light fabric trim on the edges.

Although I’ve done this a few times, I suggest mixing and matching your Cuddl Duds fleecewear with other wardrobe staples like denim for a practical everyday look or work pants (like Betabrand yoga pants dress pants) instead of wearing the set from head to toe.

Your outfit might look overly comfy when dressed head to toe in Cuddl Duds fleecewear (top and bottom). And that’s okay if that’s the look you’re going for.

If it’s not, try adding some statement jewelry (like this or this), a wristwatch, a handbag (this would be perfect), a pair of geeky glasses, or dressier shoes (a pair of riding boots would be perfect).

Accessorizing a simple everyday outfit can be a game-changer. For me, it’s a pair of classic loafers (similar) with cute tassels and a faux fur scarf (similar option) for some old Hollywood glam.

This is a practical look (with or without the scarf) that you can easily pull off on a cold day.

WHAT I REALLY LIKE ABOUT CUDDL DUDS:

  • Superior comfort level
  • Functional and fashionable
  • Perfect cold-weather staple
  • Also great for layering
  • Great selection of styles and patterns
  • Form-fitting and non-restrictive

  1. Very helpful, and you look great, thanks. I’m 70, and still getting by with the snow pants a girlfriend (who’s now 88 and had to quit running her 6 miles a day 2 years ago…just walks instead every morning near the woods…) but am getting cold when I snowshoe with my friends like at Crater Lake here in Oregon. SO…I found a 30-year-old undershirt that’s kinda thick, with WOOL in it, and wow that’s made a big difference. But I need something warm on bottom now, so I am wondering if fleece would really be as warm as investing in a pair of leggings or pants to wear underneath with wool. I’ve been wearing CuddleDuds for 25 years probably but (duuuhhh) just realized recently they’re too thin! So do you think these fleece would work in 20 degrees if I was just standing around? We always bring a sack lunch and find a log…we hike about 4-6 miles a couple times a week.

    1. Hi Jacqueline, that’s a great question! Could you possible try the fleece option to see if that would work for you. I have to admit that the quality of products several decades ago is probably much better than the quality we have now (or you’d have to pay wayyy more to get that same quality). However, I had no issues wearing my Cuddl Duds in 20ºF weather.
