Daylight savings has come and gone, Netflix is releasing new shows by the minute, and bomber jackets are trending—I’m starting to get the hint that hibernation season is officially upon us. The time has come for me to revisit my at-home wardrobe, and I’d be totally unprepared for months of series binging without buying into my new favorite trend that is maximum cozy, minimum effort, and instantly chic. I’ve decided that house dresses are the best way to step into 2022 with an elevated take on loungewear.
Gone are my early pandemic days of frantic Amazon orders hoping to find a solution to the newfound need for more time spent at home. I now have a strategic approach that is both comfortable and stylish, and I want you to try it with me.
It may be difficult for me to convince some of you to trade in your trusty sweatpants for a chic dress, but hear me out. Dodging seasonal woes becomes much easier when you feel like your best self, and this is the trend that will help you do just that. A new house dress is a purchase you won’t regret because you’ll be able to layer it with cozy knits for days spent at home, but you can also dress it up for a night out here and there—exactly what you’ll need for this winter. I’ve gathered a style for everyone, whether you lean toward more tailored, menswear-inspired pieces or flirty, feminine silhouettes, so start scrolling.
