UO Torino Sweatshirt Mini Dress
If you’ve ever wanted to walk around your home pant-less, this sweatshirt dress lets you do that while looking socially acceptable. Pair the straight-cut fit and lightweight fabric with some white sneakers for an easygoing street-style look (for when you do finally get to leave your house). Plus, it has pockets!
To buy: $40, urbanoutfitters.com.
Ultra-Stretch Striped Tunic Set
Stretchy clothes are the best clothes, and this set has a lot of it. The unique fabric is made using a special knitting technique so that it can pull in all directions, and it has tapered cuffs to create a clean look and avoid dragging sleeves.
To buy: $30, uniqlo.com.
Indigo Smocked Huston Pull-On Crop Pants
We get it, you wouldn’t dream of wearing jeans when you’re relaxing in the house. But these aren’t your regular pair of jeans: The wide-leg construction allows for breezy movement while the smocked waist is roomy enough to make them pajamas-level comfy.
To buy: $75, madewell.com.
Zara Satin Effect Jogging Pants
Cut from the softest silk, serious style meets a relaxed fit in these chic slouchy joggers that can (and should) leave the living room. A soft gold shimmer lends them an ultra-sophisticated look.
To buy: $40, zara.com.
Loft Plaid Pajama Set
We all love a matching set (also known as co-ords or two-pieces—or fashion's best invention). This cute pink-and-white gingham top-and-pants comes with a drawstring waist and the softest 100 percent cotton for an adorable lounge ensemble.
To buy: $60, loft.com.
Everlane The ReNew Fleece Raglan Sweatshirt
Thanks to its thick, plush construction, this fleecy sweatshirt is the next warmest thing to your favorite robe, but reimagined as a refined layering piece (due to its slightly cropped length and nipped fit). It even has a sustainable angle—the colorful fabric (it comes in six!) is made of 100% recycled polyester derived from 32 plastic water bottles.

Refinery 29 Marissa Longline Chemise
If you want to stay comfortable but look a bit more refined for a romantic night, slip into this longline chemise adorned with a flirty polka-dot print. In addition to being the perfect mix of sweet and sexy, the lightweight fabric makes it a perfect choice for warmer weather or sleep sweaters (no more waking up sweaty and gross!).
To buy: $59, nordstrom.com.
ASOS Lounge Borg Robe
This teddy-bear textured borg is the closest thing to snuggling inside a cloud. The relaxed, baggy fit makes it ideal to wear around the house, but equally stylish to throw on during your 5 p.m. virtual happy hour.
To buy: $59, asos.com.
Lunya Silk Bathrobe
While the price tag is on the higher side, the quality you get is far worth it, especially if you’re a frequent robe-wearer. Silk is one of the most indulgent and luxurious fabrics on the market, but on the flipside it’s equally high-maintenance. Lunya’s delicate robes eliminate this problem—they’re made with naturally thermoregulating silk that you can throw right into the washing machine without sacrificing the quality. Go on, spoil yourself (and save on dry cleaning).
