Gone are the days of office dress codes, mama. In the midst of a pandemic, my focus the past few weeks has been to be as comfortable as possible while social distancing and working from home. But you probably still have to look a little put together for those Zoom calls. And if you need more of a reason to swap out clothing in the morning, changing out of your pajamas (even if it's into your daytime PJs or loungewear) can actually trick your brain into making you feel a bit happier.
So we searched online for the best of the best in cozy pieces. Here are our favorite loungewear pieces that'll seamlessly take you from work meetings to binging Netflix:
If you haven't tried a piece from the Signaturesoft collection from Lou & Grey, what are you waiting for? It's the softest fabric I've ever felt and we adore the collar detailing on this piece—look business-y up top for meetings while staying cozy with leggings underneath.
This sweater's relaxed turtleneck will elevate just about any outfit. Plus, it comes in a variety of gorgeous colorways.
A versatile maternity must-have, this cozy cotton sweatshirt dress makes pants optional. (Isn't that what WFH is all about?) It's designed to grow with your bump and even has pockets to keep your essentials close at hand.
A comfortable jogger pant under $12? I'll take one of each color, please. They're made for comfort, elongate your legs and have great reviews.
A super soft, fleece sweatshirt that'll grow with your bump. It has a relaxed fit so you'll be able to wear it throughout your pregnancy (and after).
The towel French terry fabric means you can wear this bundled up inside or stay warm on chillier summer nights. It has a kangaroo pocket on the front, making it easy for you to store your phone as you're running around the house between meetings.
From the sleep, lounge and play experts at Lake, this ultra-soft bamboo tank gown has summer staple written all over it–work or otherwise. The rich navy hue makes it feel sophisticated and meeting appropriate.
This top is part of their "Light Hug" collection which means it has a built-in "bra" (it feels more like a bralette) sewn into the top. So it's a way to go braless for the day without feeling uncomfortable or unprofessional. We love how incredibly soft and comfortable this top is while also completely passing for a nice blouse on those Zoom calls. And while it's not marketed as being breastfeeding-friendly, it totally is due to how simple it is to pop the ladies in and out of this top.
If you haven't noticed, tie dye is *the* color of the season. With an adjustable waistband, you can make sure the fit feels best for your body. Pair with a plain t-shirt for a Zoom-appropriate look.
A shirt so soft you can wear it to bed. The cut is flattering on all body types, looks great with jeans or cozy shorts and comes in more than 10 colorways. We'll take one in every color.
A simple wrap that'll pair over literally anything in your closet (yes, even that pajama shirt you forgot to change out of). It runs slightly large so size down if you'd prefer a snugger fit, or keep your regular size if you'd like a cozier feel.
Okay, yes, this is technically a pajama top but it gets its 'all-day' name for a reason. The front pocket and scoop neck make this look presentable for any meeting on your computer. And, it's oh-so-soft.
Say hello to the joggers you'll wear every single day until this pandemic is over. Made with the incredible Signaturesoft material, the pants will feel like you're wearing a cloud. And they're part of the His & Her collection, meaning they're great for both genders.
While we recommend changing out of your pajamas in the morning, some days that's just not possible. This set will have everyone on the other side of the screen thinking you're wearing a sweater. Bonus points for coming in so many good tie-dye colors!
French terry fabric makes this half-zip sweatshirt comfortable enough to take you from morning meetings to binging shows at night. The bottom hem has a drawstring so you can adjust it to your preference.
NakedCashmere lauren top
This is a splurge, but a piece that'll last for years to come. It has a boxy silhouette and a raw-cut hemline that looks great on all body types. Keep in mind that it's crafted from luxury cotton cashmere so it's hand-wash only.
Business on the top, cozy on the bottom. Recliner is known for their best-selling (and often out of stock) second skin nightie, but they also have fantastic PJ sets that can take you from day to night and have you feeling profesh all the way. The boat neck and side vents are stylish extras you don't normally see in traditional pajamas and the fabric they use is their signature sleep jersey—seriously one of the softest materials we've ever tried on. Don't sleep on these. Or do.
