With video conference calls a near-unavoidable part of the women’s loungewear , bridging the gap between comfy home-office attire and sleek office wear requires style that’s both comfortable and presentable. Thankfully, the past few years have seen a rise in brands that offer fashion-forward women’s loungewear that satisfies both needs: think luxe fabrics and laid-back silhouettes. This season, a range of options offer everything from cozy hoodies and sweatpants to feminine pajama-inspired sets. From the ultra-soft, cotton rib leggings and crew neck from Skims to this merino wool set by Buck Mason, there’s something for every level of comfort.
If you’re looking to elevate your everyday loungewear wardrobe, try pieces made from soft fabrics like merino wool and organic cotton. Both fabrics are incredibly breathable and have a softer, smoother feel than synthetic fabrics. Plus, they don’t shrink in the wash, so you can get more wear out of them as the weather cools down.

The best women’s loungewear pieces are made from luxurious materials like cashmere and silk, which also feel smooth against the skin and keep you warm. The open Edit hoodie and pant set (above), for example, features a ribbed hem and waistband for a more polished look, while the culotte-inspired pants are lightweight enough to transition from indoors to out with sneakers and a duster coat as temperatures dip.
If you’re ready to upgrade your loungewear for the colder months, consider adding a long-sleeve tee and wide-leg pants from Girlfriend’s new loungewear line. The set is available in a range of eye-candy neutrals and comes in sizes from extra small to 6XL.
