Over the summer, the Wall Street Journal wrote a piece about a generational divide between Gen X and Baby Boomers using top sheets, with millennials and Gen Z choosing not too. It's a frivolous debate, but I'm here to entertain it. I don't use a top sheet—a fitted sheet and duvet are all I need for some solid shuteye. Our elders believe that sleeping with a top sheet is more hygienic and the traditional way to sleep. We young guns think it's more resourceful to skip it, and if you clean your duvet cover regularly it's just as clean. (You are remembering to launder that, right?) But I'm here to propose a soft, seasonal solution—a chic cozy blanket is an answer that allows us to meet in the middle.

Since it's chilly at night, an added layer is always a good option. Throw on a blanket over your duvet or place it under to sub out for the top sheet. I know it sounds contradictory but sleeping with a blanket allows for flexibility—it's not as big of a commitment to tuck it under your duvet as a top sheet. But then again, blankets are not just for bedrooms. They come in handy when curling up on the couch and relaxing with some great music or snuggling with your significant other. Plus, they look sharp when slung over the back of a chair or sofa while adding some much-needed warmth and texture to a room. We've pulled together nearly two dozen options that are luxe yet practical. From high-end cashmere to rugged Polartec fleece, the choice is yours. Well, that and your decision about "blanket or no blanket" while sleeping.
