It’s ridiculously frigid outside, so grab something cozy to cuddle up in by the fire—like these slouchy French-terry sweatshirts by local brand United State of Indiana.

Westfield Blvd., 317-253-7530), says her Broad Ripple shop has sold more than 300 USI pieces in the last few months, making it by far her best-selling brand. These sweatshirts, $38 in-store and online, drape just right over one shoulder and come in faded pink, blue, and heather gray. Cute!
