The Best Housedresses For Your Work-From-Home Attire
Ah, the house dress. While the concept might sound grandmother-like, in theory, it's no different than the coastal grandmother trend. To define a housedress is in the eyes of the beholder, but the qualifications are simple: a loose and flowy dress that hits at or below the knees. The idea is that these dresses are so comfortable and polished, they trump your everyday pajamas and sweats. It's a way to make you feel dressed up without actually having to dress up, and it particularly suits the remote worker.
To appear put-together and feel comfortable is undoubtedly the best combination, which is why we gathered a handful of house dresses from retailers like Hill House Home, lululemon, Amazon, and more, to help upgrade your home attire. Even if you've transitioned back to the office, there's nothing wrong with grabbing one for the time you do spend at home (or even outside the home). After all, there are no rules to the housedress — wear it in public if you wish!
Whether you're looking for a cotton housedress that's flowy and breathable, a housedress with pockets to store your keys or phone, or a figure-hugging dress that flatters every curve, these are the best housedresses on the market for all price points.

Linen has definitely made an impression on us editors at POPSUGAR, and this Plain Maxi Long Dress ($14) has a cotton and linen construction that we'd only assume to be comfortable.

The double-layered Pima Cotton Open-Back Midi Dress ($64, originally $124) is incredibly breathable with a stretchy fabric that moves with you. Turn this dress around to reveal an open back that gives it the perfect amount of oomph. It hits right below the knees with a slightly longer back for a silhouette that skims the body.
