Any day can be a loungewear day if you want it to be. Even when you have every intention of getting dressed in the morning, the siren song of sweats can be too enticing to resist. Particularly if said sweats are of the comfort-centric—yet undeniably considered—variety. (And you know the rules if it’s a no bones day.)
Successfully pulling off pajamas in public hinges on two things: a chic set (this Deiji Studios one, done in a slightly crinkled paper-weight poplin, is just so good) and smart styling (a buttoned-up cardigan, a burgundy carryall, and delicate strokes of shine work well here).

We see your washed-out sweats and raise you a pair of sumptuous marled salt-and-pepper joggers. Go all in with the matching turtleneck and the kind of low-key-glamorous finishing touches that make you look—and feel—your very best.

It’s a fashion formula we’ve been leaning on since March of last year: business on top, comfort on the bottom. Frill-free or feminine, culotte-y or tapered toward the cuffs—this crop of work tops and lounge pants comes in all shapes and sizes. And that jewelry is team-meeting gold.

Your travel outfit for the annual trek to your parents’ house should be comfortable, of course, but also highly functional. Repurpose those cashmere sweats at Thanksgiving dinner (a stretchy waistband = more room for stuffing) with a pretty button-down and polished accents.

Good news: Getting a head start on your holiday shopping this year requires little more than a sweatsuit. Simply add a butterscotch trench or a puffy blanket coat to keep you warm between stores, a hands-free bag, and lug-sole boots you can last all day in.
