You’ll Ditch Your Ratty Sweatpants For These Loungewear Upgrades

Show of hands, who has been wearing the same pair of sweats for more days than they’re comfortable admitting? When we are under stay-at-home orders, it’s easy to not get dressed and stay in the same tried-and-true loungewear. But since we’re in this for the long run, we decided it was time to give our loungewear an upgrade. You can keep that ratty old college sweatshirt for the next time you need to paint or dig in the garden 😉.

Upgrade your sweatpants

Some people prefer sweatpants, others prefer yoga pants. Either way, wearing the same pair every day isn’t the best for your mental health during this time period. Upgrade to a quality pair of sweats or colorful yoga leggings to boost morale and get you in a better mindset.

Upgrade your sweaters

From holes in the armpits to pasta stains on the front, sweatshirts and sweaters are usually one of the last items in your loungewear wardrobe to get an upgrade. These sweaters and sweatshirts are super-soft and cozy, but elevated enough for a last-minute Zoom call.

Upgrade your slippers

Wearing shoes inside the house is gross. Wearing slippers at home is good for your feet. They not only keep your tootsies warm, but they help protect your feet (no matter how clean your house is) and provide support when walking on “unnatural” surfaces like tile or wood.

Upgrade your robe

A pretty robe is the ultimate elevated “staying in” must-have. While I personally prefer one with a big pink feather trim, these epically soft robes are a bit more practical and will have you lounging in comfort and style.
