It makes sense that linen is a GOAT fabric, especially when it comes to clothes you want to relax in. Breathable and effortlessly chic, the best linen pajamas and loungewear combine the hero fabric’s sophisticated texture with silhouettes that you can sleep in, relax in, or even go out for a casual outing in — or all of the above.

How To Shop For Linen Pajamas & Loungewear

Consider Pure Linen Vs. A Linen Blend

Made from flax, the cellulose fibers in linen are longer, and more tightly woven, than cotton, thus earning linen’s reputation for durability. Linen fibers are also hollow, so you’ll get the added benefit of breathability — a plus for sweaty sleepers, or for wearing during the warmer months.

If you’re unable to find the right piece in 100% linen try a linen blend. It’ll offer the luxe look and feel of linen, but will feel a little softer right out of the box; pure linen typically needs a few wears and washes to soften up. Cotton- or rayon-linen blends are also less prone to wrinkling than pure linen, if that’s something you’re concerned about, and they tend to be more affordable options.

Choose Your Silhouette

When shopping for linen pieces, look for silhouettes that complement the fabric’s unique qualities. When rendered in linen, a menswear-inspired pajama set with long sleeves and pants is perfect for those who want the coverage of a classic long pajama set, but with more ventilation. Thanks to its naturally rumpled appearance and soft, easy feel, many linen dresses and separates can be worn as pajamas or loungewear, even if they’re not marketed as such. For example, a linen slip dress or shirt dress can work either as a nightgown or a dress, depending on how you style it; a pair of drawstring linen shorts or pants can be worn as boxer shorts, a chic cover-up over your swimsuit, or as a polished alternative to your go-to sweats when you’re lounging or working at home.

Ahead, find 12 of the best linen pajamas and loungewear that’ll add a hint of luxury to your loungewear collection.


These Classic Striped Pajamas Made Of Pure Linen

This pajama set is giving classic, borrowed-from-the-boys luxury. Made from 100% linen, the long-sleeved shirt and pant silhouette is truly timeless. The collared shirt has a button-down closure, cuffed sleeves, and a patch front pocket, and the drawstring pants (which have two side pockets) have a relaxed fit. You’ll look polished even as you sleep — and what a chic way to wake up.

Positive review: “I bought two pairs and took them on a tropical vacation. Nice enough to wear for morning coffee with family and friends. Breathable linen at a MUCH more affordable price. I will be buying another pair.”

This Versatile Linen Slip Dress You Can Wear As A Nightgown

Although it’s not sold as a nightgown, some Amazon shoppers wear this linen slip dress to sleep on hot summer nights, thanks to its ultra-breathable 100% linen construction and relaxed fit that allows for plenty of airflow. Yet another contingent of shoppers wear it for lounging around the house for the very same reasons — yet the delicate, adjustable spaghetti straps and V-neckline look luxe enough to wear as a dress outside the house paired with a chic heel. The dropped, split hem adds a touch of visual interest, and two side pockets offer extra convenience and structure. You’ll wear this for years to come.

Positive review: “Effortlessly fashionable. I bought this dress for a trip to Europe. I'm American and every time I wore this dress I was mistaken for french (I was in Spain) so to me that's a huge fashion compliment. The dress packs well and is light weight and easy to adjust from a day to evening look (and I also even slept in it). Highly recommend.”

The ultra-relaxed silhouette is complemented by wide legs with a split hem, exaggerated armholes, and a bib front with adjustable straps, plus two effortlessly cool front pockets. Wear this with a crop top or bikini top on hot summer days lounging in the yard, then a cozy turtleneck when the weather turns crisp.

Positive review: “My new favorite lounging overalls! I love these so much I bought a second pair, and I'll probably buy a few more in different colors! [...] The material is super soft, even pre-washing. [...] These can still be adjusted quite a bit, so someone taller or much shorter could wear them as well. I'm wearing these mostly around my house, but these could be dressed up with a nice blouse and belt/scarf around the waist, and paired with some heels for a fun night on the town.”
