The Best Loungewear For Hanging Out At Home

Many of us are spending more and more time at home. Homeschooling kids, going out to dinner less, not traveling…it’s a different lifestyle. Which means cozy loungewear is more important than ever!

I think it’s SO important, I made loungewear one of my top 10 essentials for fall in this video.

In this post, I wanted to share some super stylish and soft loungewear (that I LOVE)… that is also affordable!

Loungewear Essentials

What is your ideal loungewear outfit?

I personally love a cozy pair of sweatpants paired with a stylish and super soft sweater like the combo above.

Here’s what I look for when I shop for loungewear outfits…

1. It needs to be SO soft and comfortable that I could sleep in it. And, ya know what, sometimes I DO!
2. I need to look chic enough to answer the door or take a Zoom call in it
3. And, my loungewear needs to be affordable!
I’ve experimented with a variety of price points, and when you wash and wear pieces this much, I don’t think it makes sense to break the bank.

The Cozy Shop at Express has so many pieces that check all these boxes! As most of you know, I’ve shopped at Express for many years (since my early 20’s) and I love that I can always find a mix of trendy pieces AND elevated basics. It’s also rare and really neat that I find the clothes just as relevant for my 40-something something self as I did for the 20+ year-old me.

#1 | Metallic Joggers

Just because you are wearing sweatpants, doesn’t mean you can’t sparkle! I LOVE that these soft joggers have a pretty shine in the fabric to create a subtle metallic look! They’re high waisted (a must-have for me) and have a drawstring waistband so they’re easy to adjust. They also have pockets! Sometimes joggers can be hard to find for petites, but these are perfect! I’m 5’4” for reference. They also come in gray and merlot.

#2 | Puff Shoulder Sweater

Finding a loungewear top that you feel comfortable answering the door in AND could take a Zoom call-in is tricky. It’s all about walking that fine line between comfort and style. That’s where Express’s Cozy Shop comes in. This sweater is casual and comfortable enough to wear as loungewear but still very chic. It has puff shoulders that give it an added style detail. It’s ribbed, super soft, and easy to tuck in. You could also wear it with jeans and booties…it’s a great, versatile sweater! (It also comes in black, camel, and a cool rust color.) Trust me when I say… you will LOVE this one!!

BTW, this dainty necklace was designed by my friend, Alicia Wood. You can find it here.

More Loungewear Favorites

To complete the perfect loungewear outfit, I got some super soft fuzzy socks that also come in black, ivory, and pink. The cute pearl beaded headband I’m wearing adds some extra style to the look and it’s perfect if you’re trying to hide dirty hair on a Zoom call! 😉 (Just add a little Dove Dry Shampoo to your hairline) Find more of my favorite cozy pieces from Express below…
