30 Stylish Loungewear Pieces On Amazon That Also Pass For Real Clothing

Amazon

Chances are you've found yourself reaching for your sweatpants more often these days. For most us, the coronavirus outbreak has changed almost everything about our daily lives — including the way we dress. If Instagram is any indicator it seems like we've collectively abandoned our jeans in favor of soft, unfussy loungewear. And sure, maybe we've swapped our "real" clothes for pjs because we have no where to go and thus no reason to get dressed. But I think we've also retreated into the comfort of soft jersey knits for the same reason we reach for comfort food after a break up: Emotional support. A plush sweatshirt is essentially a warm hug.

Another lesson we can take from the slew of loungewear-clad celebrities and influencers on Instagram, is that pajamas don't have to look like pajamas. They can be just as chic and stylish as anything else is your closet. There is so many stylish loungewear pieces that are both comfortable and nice enough that they can actually pass as real clothing. That means, even once we're living in a post-covid-19 world, you can still wear these pieces to the office or out to brunch.

So to help you upgrade you closet with some emotional-support clothing, I've scoured Amazon for stylish yet budget-friendly loungewear pieces to add to your wardrobe.

We only recommend products we love and that we think you will, too. We may receive a portion of sales from products purchased from this article, which was written by our Commerce team.
