If you can believe it, the beginning of fall is upon us. And while that may mean shorter days and faded tans, it also means cozy outfits are on the horizon. More time indoors means we can all slip into something a little more comfortable. But laidback outfits don’t have to mean your boyfriend’s t-shirts and old sweats—there are so many chic loungewear pieces out there right now that are perfect to head into the fall season with.
The whole loungewear category has exploded over the last 18 months so designers have really stepped up their game in that department, almost leaving us with too many good options to choose from. From cute matching sets to cozy knit separates to pajamas chic enough for Instagram, loungewear has reached a stylish new level.
We’ve gone ahead and done the research for you so you can head into fall in style. Below are the 10 best lounge outfits and pajamas to stay equal parts cozy and chic.
Between the ribbed texture, elevated color options, and polished fit of the joggers, it’s hard to choose a favorite aspect of this set. The cropped length of the hoodie makes the top half ultra-flattering while the high-waist details of the pants do the same for the bottom. Whether you’re lounging at home or venturing out for errands, this set will be your new go-to.
The perfect work-from-home outfit does exist! Cozy enough for lounging but polished enough for Zoom calls, the Hailee Set from Free People does double duty. The oversize nature of the top also lends well to pair with jeans or leggings if you want to get even more wear out of it. Not only is the price super reasonable, but it comes in three colorways so you may need more than one.
Instagram’s favorite pajama set is back and better than ever. The fabric is soft as can be and the feathers add such a fun element to this set. It’s available in a ton of colorways and is guaranteed to lift your mood every time you put it on. Pajama party anyone?
A classic grey sweatsuit with a modern twist—Rails gave a basic set an elevated update with a chic V-neckline and luxe fabric. Perfect for travel, lounging, or running around town, this sweatsuit feels laidback and polished all at the same time. Just add sneakers and your look is set.
If you’re looking to update your pajama drawer with something luxurious, look no further than this Eberyjey set. The fabric is thick and high-quality and the classic white piping makes it something you’ll keep in your closet forever. Cozy, polished, and timeless—this one checks all the boxes.
The name of this set says it all—the “butter” fabric of this Commando set is as soft and silky as it gets, hugging your body in the most flattering way. The ballet-inspired top features a wrap-style front that really stands out amongst your other loungewear pieces.
Ribbed detailing instantly elevated a basic, and this set is proof. The simple tank and cropped pants set is made infinitely more polished thanks to the thick rib details and high-quality fabric. Wear around the house or add a jacket and some sneakers for heading out.
You had me at cashmere—this Reformation set is the epitome of comfort. Made from ultra-soft recycled cashmere, this sweatsuit will keep you warm, cozy, and put together during the colder months. Start wearing for fall and it will carry you all the way through winter. Plus a black cashmere top is as versatile as it gets, so pair it with everything from jeans to skirts when you’re looking to head out.
This is the kind of texture you simply have to touch. You’ll feel like you’re wrapped in a cloud in this plush set that you’re guaranteed to wear on repeat this fall. It comes in three colorways plus both a pants and shorts version, so stocking up on multiple is highly recommended.
Worn together as a set or separately mixed with other pieces, this is the set that truly does it all. Comfortable as can be while looking completely polished is what sartorial dreams are made of. The crinkle fabric also makes it ideal to travel with—no need for a steamer here. Go straight from a Zoom call to movie night in Donni’s Bubble set.
