With close to 6,000 5-star customer ratings, it’s no wonder these Zella Live In High-Waist Leggings are one of our readers' top-purchased items from Nordstrom this year.

This pair of ultra-soft pajamas is classic, comfortable and made from a sustainably produced Tencel modal fabric so you can feel good both in them and about wearing them.

Ugg is known for its signature fleece-lined boots, so it only makes sense that its fleece-lined knit leggings would be just as comfortable and warm.
