With the emergence of trends like pajamas-as-clothes and fashionable loungewear, it’s clear that an era of elevated comfort has descended upon us. But, as any modern shopper knows, buying comfy clothing doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style or quality. Case in point? These 50 cheap things on Amazon that are so comfy and well made, you’ll wear them for years to come.

Granted, fashion’s relationship with comfort is peak on-and-off-again. Comfy is a concept both embraced and derided, sometimes portrayed as the opposite of good style, and other times synonymous with luxury. But if what’s trending right now — from soft knits to puffy layers to earthy, outdoor-friendly pieces — is any indication, the feel-good coziness we craved from our clothes in the throes of WFH is a vibe we just don’t see ourselves getting over.

Conventional wisdom would have you believe that the best way to acquire a comfy-chic wardrobe is to invest in a few luxury basics that feel good and fit well — layering pieces that go with anything. With these 50 cheap and well-made essentials, though, you won’t have to forfeit your budget for the sake of longevity. They’re built for comfort and built to last, providing the perfect base for your dreamiest capsule wardrobe yet. And because they’re so affordable, you won’t have to choose between your favorites. Scroll on and see for yourself.
