Towards the beginning of quarantine, you might have heard about the “house dress” trend, and if you need a lil refresher, it’s literally a dress you can wear around the house as, like, elevated loungewear. But the dress style is more specific. Usually, they’re midi or maxi length, they don’t have constricting waistlines, and they’re just all-around pretty breezy and comfortable. (Think voluminous skirts, drop waists, smocking, wrap designs, linen and cotton fabric, etc.)
Basically, if you’re sick of all your sweatpants and leggings and pajamas, get yourself into a house dress and you’ll be just as cozy because of the roomy shape, but you’ll also look way fashionable on any video calls or for your party-of-one happy hour at home (no shame) while social distancing. House dresses have been a major summer trend, but you can totally wear them into fall and beyond with the right layering and accessories. And just because they’re called “house dresses” doesn’t mean you’re required to wear them indoors only—they’re made to wear outdoors too, and you can even match them with your mask! Here, 20 styles you’ll want to wear constantly.
