The Best Elevated Loungewear to Wear on Repeat This Season
It's official: cold weather is fast approaching and that means it's time to build up your loungewear collection for cozy days ahead. With more time spent on the couch and less at alfresco parties and park picnics, it's time to turn your attention to your at-home wardrobe with the best loungewear for women.
Now, to be clear, what we love most about great loungewear is that it can be worn outside the home. It all comes down to styling. Your favorite pajama set is perfect to wear around the house with a robe and slippers — but add a pair of feathered heels and a metallic clutch and you can wear it to a party. And those cashmere joggers you love to pair with a matching sweatshirt at home? Break them up to head outside, pairing the joggers with a crop top or the sweatshirt with a sequin skirt, and bring the cozy with you.
Ahead, we've rounded up some of the best elevated loungewear you can shop right now, from dresses to pieces that you can wear together — or apart. All of the classics are in attendance — like cotton pajama sets and the perfect crewneck sweatshirt — but we've added some unexpected must-haves as well. Think:'90s-era pointelle tanks, shearling Birkenstocks, and the like. From the softest cotton robe to classic sweatpantsalike, keep scrolling to discover all our loungewear favorites.
