The Best Loungewear

May 14, 2023


Team LIY

Welcome to possibly the most comfortable blog post we’ve ever hit publish on! We talk a lot about fashion here at LIY, but I think we all agree our favorite thing to wear is our comfies! So snuggle up, buttercups. The LIY Team and Ambassadors are sharing what we’re reading, binge-watching, cozy favorites, go-to nighttime snacks and most importantly: what were wearing to do it all! Let’s get cozy. Here is the best loungewear & pajamas — according to LIY!

Casual Loungewear

Erin’s AirEssentials SPANX Pieces [LIYXSPANX for 10% off]

AirEssentials Tank [LIYXSPANX for 10% off, true to size, wearing in small] // AirEssentials Pants [LIYXSPANX for 10% off, true to size, wearing in small]

Wow, wow, and wow. There is comfortable and then there is SPANX comfortable. These AirEssential pieces are off the charts. My favorite part? I can totally rock this tank with a pair of shorts for out and about or throw a denim jacket over this for a cute travel look. There is a lot of versatility in these pieces and believe me when I say the fabric is dream-worthy.

  • Currently Binging: Shrinking on Apple TV. You must watch it.
  • Favorite Nighttime Snack: Bring on the Amish LadyFinger popcorn [seriously, it’s delicious] and a mini can of Pepsi. Guilty as charged.

Katy’s Target Set

Sweatshirt [sized up for comfier fit // Joggers [size up if in between] // Shorts [size up if in between] // Slippers [wearing M for size 8] // Sneakers [size down .5]

OH MY SOFT. This set from Stars Above truly does feel above & beyond – also love that it has a shorts and jogger option to mix and match! I would wear this around the house or out and about! I went with this neutral gray, but it also comes in a beautiful mint and fun hot pink! You can grab all 3 pieces for under $55, but it truly feels like luxury quality! I am 5’4″ for reference.

  • Must-Have Cozy Item: This blanket I’ve had for 6 years!
  • Currently Binging: Rewatching “The Hills” on Hulu (LOL HI 2007)

Claire’s Aerie Set

Sweatshirt [It’s cropped, so I sized up to a large for a little extra length!] // Shorts [Again, I sized up to a large for a little extra length!]

Aerie, you can do no wrong! This set comes in a ton of fun colors and I love the lightweight material for summer. I would wear this lounging around the house or for a casual work from home day; but to be completely upfront, I’ve been wearing it nonstop for two days straight! BRB off to shower, wash this set, and put it right back on. 😉

Macy’s Half Zip + Shorts

Half Zip Sweatshirt [tts, wearing xxs] // Shorts [tts, wearing xxs]

I keep finding myself shopping at Abercrombie over and over again! Their petite sizing is a must for me. From loungewear to formal dresses they’ve got it all. This “set” is actually sold separately. When I ordered I was a little nervous about coloring because the sweatshirt color is listed as navy and the shorts are listed as blue, but they ended up matching perfectly! They are so comfortable and whether loungin’ around the house with my kiddos or out running errands, I find myself reaching for this duo again and again.

  • Currently Binging: The Crown
  • Favorite nighttime snack: Popcorn + mini marshmallows — I’m a sucker for sweet + salty!

Jen’s Barefoot Dreams Set

Barefoot Dreams Ribbed Lounge Set [ON SALE] true to size, wearing M in color Pewter

Don’t let this set pass you by, treat yourself my ladies… you will NOT be sorry you did! You will not want to take this off, ever. And great news, you could totally wear this out of the house! Toss a jacket on, sneakers and get your shop on if you want! It’s oh so soft and beyond cozy and comfy. 10/10 would recommend this lounge set!

Hannah’s Aerie Tee + Biker Shorts

V Neck Tee [Size down one, wearing in XS] // Sports Bra [TTS] // Biker Shorts [TTS]

From lounge to lunch [lol] I love that these oversized Aerie tees and biker shorts can be worn from a lazy day on the couch to lunch out with friends! Just add a denim jacket, drop the slippers and be on your way! There’s nothing better than NOT having to change your clothes to leave the house [haha]!

  • Currently Binging: The Office, I’m a sucker for that show and sometimes you need a good laugh at the end of the day!
  • Favorite Nighttime Snack: Popcorner Chips [they’re so dang good!]

Heather’s Amazon Set

Set [true to size or size up for cozy fit]

I have been living in this Amazon set at home and even wearing the sweatshirt out and about. I may have worn it to bed one night and the grocery store the next! I chose to size up one for an oversized cozy fit!

Lisa’s Free People Set

Set [true to size, wearing Small]

Lisa here with an exceptional lounge set that you can stylishly still run Saturday afternoons errands in and not be afraid to run into someone you know. (😄) This set is beyond comfortable and I absolutely love the cuff of these pants. I have heard there will be some spring colors released in the weeks to come and keep hitting refresh to see! Do you have a go-to lounge set?

Debbie’s Sweatshirt + Leggings

Sweatshirt [true to size] // Leggings [true to size] // Sneakers [true to size]

Debbie here with a super soft sweatshirt and I absolutely love these leggings! I wear them to do yoga, run errands or just lounge around the house. They have a bit of compression which makes the fit very flattering and hides any imperfections. Got these in size small and they also run tts. For reference I’m 5’6″ and 130 lbs.


Lauren’s J.Crew PJ’s

JCrew Factory Pajama Set [sized up to a large!]

I have several pairs of JCrew Factory pajamas, and I love their shorts sets, because they’re a] affordable b] comfortable c] cute! They’re a thicker material than my other favorite jammies [looking at you Nordstrom Moonlight PJs], which I like especially if I’m going to be around more than my immediate family! A thicker material [and what you can and cannot see through them] can go along way when we’re talking about wearing our jammies around others! This loungewear was made for sleeping! No venturing out in this set!

Erin’s Moonlight Pajamas

Shorts Version [size down if in between!] // Pant Version [size down if in between!]

Claire’s LAKE Pajamas

Pajama Set [size up one!] // Similar Slippers [size up .5]

Aundrea’s Amazon Nightshirt

Nightshirt [Wearing 4x, normally a 2x]

If you know me, you know I LOVE all thing pajamas and lounge wear! After a long day of work, I love being able to go home and rest in something comfy! This Amazon find is just that. I ordered 2 sizes too big, but it’s perfect for snuggling up after a long day or wearing to bed!

  • Favorite night time snack: anything salty!! I mean a good classic Lay chip
  • Must Have Cozy Item: my weighted blanket!
