Loungewear has been trending for a while now. Influencers have been rocking matching sets all over Instagram for months, and now that you are spending more (if not all) time at home, you may be in the market to buy new sweats.
Whether it's for working from home or lounging on the couch at night, comfort is necessary. Clothing like sweatpants, sweatshirts, yoga pants, and cardigans are perfect pieces to put in the rotation for your new normal. We searched the internet for top-rated (and cute!) pieces and found 14 solid options. While matching sets have been selling out left and right, there are plenty of comfy items at every price point still in stock if you are in the market for loungewear.
1. This popular matching loungewear set from Lou & Grey
There's a reason so many people love the Signaturesoft line from Lou & Grey—every piece is made with the brand's beloved buttery soft fabric. One of the most popular items are these relaxed-fit sweatpants, which are complete with plenty of pockets and a comfy elastic waist. Happy customers like that the tapered leg creates a more flattering silhouette than your average pair of sweats and that the material is top quality. If you've been Iooking for a matching set, pair the sweatpants with the matching sweatshirt! Matching loungewear sets have been selling out, but this Lou & Grey combo is still in stock in select sizes.

2. These ridiculously affordable joggers
PSA: High-quality loungewear doesn't have to be expensive. Enter Aerie. Not only does the brand make my favorite pair of leggings but they also make one of my favorite pairs of joggers—and they're less than $30. I love the lightweight linen fabric (perfect for warmer months!) and that they have pockets for toting around my phone, hair ties, and, most importantly, snacks.
3. This matching set from the brand behind the viral swimsuit
Remember how obsessed everyone (including us) was with Summersalt swimsuits last year? Well, according to reviewers (and the world of social media influencers), their loungewear is just as amazing. This matching set, made with plushy terry fabric, comes in a rainbow of colors and is both durable and comfortable. One woman said it makes her feel "put together but not like I'm trying too hard." Goals.
4. The Barefoot Dreams cardigan that has a cult following
This cozy open-front cardigan from cult-favorite brand, Barefoot Dreams, has over 3,000 rave reviews on Nordstrom, and after one of our editors purchased it last year, she confirmed that the hype is real. The brand makes ultra soft blankets that people—including Chrissy Teigen—are obsessed with, and wearing the clothing is like wearing one of the blankets. If you're not a cardigan person, Barefoot Dreams sells a pullover version, and the same editor also owns the pullover and loves it just as much.
5. These pajamas from Nordstrom with over 1,400 reviews
It’s now acceptable to wear pajamas 24/7 meaning you can live your best pajama life in these ultra-soft pajamas from Nordstrom. The long sleeve/pants combo has a 4.5-star rating from over 1,400 reviews, and the short/t-shirt set and the nightshirt version are not far behind. One of our editors owns a pair and has tried all three, confirming that they are just as comfortable as the reviewers say. An important note: If you’re on the shorter side, you may want to size down in the pants set or consider the shorts or nightshirt as some reviews commented on the pants being too long.

6. This 'lounge dress' from a cult-favorite bedding company
Wish you could stay in bed all day? You (kind of) can with the new line of loungewear from popular bedding brand Brooklinen. I personally own a few of the pieces (which are made with super soft cotton) and while I love them all (you can read my review of the collection here), I love the Morningside dress the best. After all, as someone who hates wearing pants, it's the ultimate lounge-acceptable alternative. The relaxed fit is easy to move around in and it's stylish enough that I can wear it outside of the house, too.
7. These popular yoga leggings
As a yoga teacher, I know my way around the world of leggings. And one pair that I especially love to lounge around in are these from Alo. The high waist hits at just the right spot and the fabric is the perfect balance of breathable and warm. I also appreciate that I can wear them for both relaxing and sweating—i.e. when I decide to get my butt off the couch for a little at-home workout, I don't even have to get changed.
8. This trendy tie-dye sweatshirt from Gap
Tie-dye is popping up everywhere. I’ve seen everything tie-dyed from t-shirts to sneakers, and I am here for it. If you've been looking for tie-dye loungewear, you've probably noticed a lot of it is either sold out or crazy expensive. Not this Gap sweatshirt though (at least not yet!). At less than $30, this top-rated sweatshirt with a 4.7-star rating and over 145 reviews is a steal. If you're not into tie-dye, it also comes in yellow and coral.
9. This stylish tracksuit from Madewell
Madewell might be best known for its jeans, but the brand also makes amazing loungewear. Especially this matching set, which is one of their best-sellers. According to its glowing reviews, the tracksuit is lightweight yet cozy and can be worn for everything from laying around on the couch to running errands on a lazy Sunday.

10. This Patagonia jumpsuit that makes getting dressed even easier
Why go through the effort of putting on two pieces when you can just put on one? That's what you'll get with this Patagonia jumpsuit, which has hundreds of rave reviews. People love that the fabric is stretchy, soft, and waterproof (for when you accidentally spill some wine, of course) and that the drawstring waist makes for a flattering, yet feel-good fit.
11. The lazy morning lounge pants from Nordstrom
If rise and shine isn’t your thing and you’re more of an afternoon person, we’ve got the lounge pant for you. These “Lazy Morning” drawstring pants from Nordstrom are comfortable and high-quality. One reviewer loved that the pants were “lightweight, but not thin feeling,” perfect to throw on while you’re having morning coffee. With 4 stars from 600 reviewers, cozy loungers raved about the comfort with one saying, “These are hands down the most comfy pant ever.”
12. This light hoodie from Lululemon
The “Scuba Hoodie” from Lululemon has nearly 1,500 great reviews. You can throw it on for a Zoom meeting, wear it while going for a walk outside, or maybe just while on the couch re-watching "Tiger King" on Netflix. Many excited hoodie reviewers raved that they love this Lululemon piece so much, they have purchased more than one. One excited shopper said, “I have five scuba hoodies”.
13. This budget-friendly Old Navy tank top with 4,500 reviews
Perfect for wearing under cardigans and zip-up hoodies, this tank top is a loungewear layering win. At only $10, this basic tank has over 4,500 reviews and 4.8-star rating. Reviewers rave that is is perfect for layering, lounging and all around great for everyday wear. One repeat purchaser said, “I buy these religiously.” They also come in regular, tall, and petite sizes.
14. This Old Navy vintage sweatshirt
Another budget loungewear option is this popular, top-rated Old Navy sweatshirt that has a 4.8-star rating from over 900 reviews. One recent reviewer commented that the top is “great for social-distancing loungewear." Personally, I love the palm tree version of this top. It’s like a pretend getaway in sweatshirt form, since we can’t actually get away at the moment.
