I knew as soon as I saw this outfit released online that I had to have it! It looks exactly like something I would actually wear.
The sweater is ultra soft, roomy, and easy to put on. The leggings look exactly like the long retired Apres Ski leggings. I think I would have preferred a more 'skinny jean' look. The boots are too cute; but somewhat difficult to get on. The hairband is just a simple stretchy ribbon.
Overall, this outfit has great mix and match potential! B+/A-.

Like ag4alison, I liked this outfit as soon as I saw it. The cowl neck sweater looks so cozy and comfortable!
The outfit includes:
a cowl-necked sweater
Here's a picture of Iris (#26) in the entire outfit. The sweater is thick and cozy. The cowl neck is currrent and mature- it makes this outfit an excellent choice for dolls in their teens.
The leggings are ankle length. It's a bit hard to tell if they are denim blue or grey- in different light, the color appears differently.
The sweater has simple cuffs and a nice knit border along the bottom hem. There is an American Girl logo, but it is the same color as the sweater and quite small, so it is not annoying.
The boots are really cute! I thought they would make it difficult for the doll to stand up, because they don't have solid soles, but I had no problem getting Iris to stand. There are two white, non-functional, buttons on each boot. I didn't care for them because the buttons are enormous when you think of the scale of the outfit. Still, the boots are a nice touch. If you like the boots from this year's Valentine PJs, but thought they were nauseatingly pink, then the Cozy Sweater boots are a great alternative.
The headband is a simple stretchy band, similar to the one included in the True Style outfit.
Overall, this is one of the best outfits American Girl has released in its MyAG line in some time.
Echoing what others have said. I love this outfit! The slippers, in my opinion, could have been real shoes instead of slippers, but other than that, I love the set. Just going to add some more pictures now.
Katia is just chillin' outside in the sweater, leggings, and headband. She refused to wear the slippers outside though because they aren't proper boots.

Chiming in to say that while I loved the outfit, those boots really are a pain to get on. They either need to be remade a little looser with more room for elastic to stretch, or they need to velcro open and shut in the back like a lot of the more structured boots do.
I'm another fan of this outfit. It's exactly the kind of stuff my 12 year old daughter and her peers like to wear, so it's quite 'on' for current fashion trendiness right now. It fits slimmer dolls perfectly. I am convinced that the slipper-boots are an homage to cardy Uggs, or at least that's what I like to think they are. An A grade all the way around, just misses a + because the headband sits oddly. AG can never get headbands right, I swear.

I really like this set. The sweater is soft and thick. Gwen is my skinniest doll and it fits her pretty well, but It might take a little stretching for it to fit some of my other dolls. The leggings are a nice color and I like that they're longer than many of the other AG leggings. The boots are really cute but as others have mentioned they are a pain to get on.
This outfit is adorable! I bought it when it first came out because it just looked so... cozy! I love the sweater because it's very soft to the touch, though it's one downside is that it's hard to mix with anything other than leggings. The leggings are very nice and, unlike the sweater has great mix and match potential. My dolls wear it all the time. The head band is nice and stretchy, nothing special. The boots are very nice but it's hard to get the dolls to stand in them. I love how they match the sweater and they look very comfortable, but if you're just going to have your doll stand around in them it's difficult because the soles are fabric and not hard like most AG shoes. Overall I really like this outfit and I give it a b+.
It comes with a pink tunic length sweater, blue denim-esque leggings, pink sweater boots with white buttons, and a pink ribbon headband.
The sweater is so soft and makes your doll so cuddly and squishy and warm and cozy looking!
The leggings are ankle length.
The boots are pretty tight around the legs. The boots don't have velcro or open up at all, so you just have to slide them on. It's hard to get the leggings down into the boots without bunching.
I originally only wanted this outfit for the boots. I couldn't decide through others' pictures whether or not I liked the sweater (particularly the color). But I love the whole outfit now. The leggings are soft cotton but can pass as jeggings because of the color. The sweater is adorable and so soft! And the boots are great, of course. I love sweater boots! The headband is very simple but I love it anyway, it looks adorable with everything else. I have no complaints other than the bunching of the leggings from the boots, but even that can look cute!
I like that everything in this outfit is at least somewhat stretchy. It was great for the online PWP after Thanksgiving for $14.
You can fit the sweater up her legs and body. I don't like doing that, but it's better than over the head. I worry about velcro and knit though. The leggings are standard. The boots are a bit of a pain to get to go over the leggings, but not horrible. I wish they had hard soles. The headband is bland, but I like the stretchy type headbands.
