    38 Pieces Of Clothing That Feel Like Pajamas But Look Put-Together

    So long, awful days in which we went to the grocery store in pajamas and inevitably saw everyone we knew for the sake of being cozy.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A flared sleeve romper so chic, the unbelievably soft fabric it's made with is just a perk — like, sleeping in this floral number would be completely understandable. *proceeds to snore in style*,

    Promising review: "La-la-looove this romper! Great quality for the price and super comfortable. Wore it to a country concert - received a lot of compliments!" —Breanna Leigh

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in three colors).

    2. A pair of high-rise leggings, because the ~little black dress~ is nice an all but truthfully? What your wardrobe (and wallet) needs is a solid pair of black bottoms that can be worn every day.

    Forever 21

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these leggings and I definitely will be getting more. They are comfortable, breathable, and are the perfect leggings one could ask for." —Alicia W.

    Get them from Forever 21 for $9.99 (available in sizes 0X-4X and in two colors).

    3. A strapless maxi dress with a breezy design for days that are hot, hot, hot. Adding a hat and jewelry will up the ante when it comes to looking ~put-together~, but honestly? This thing is so dang cozy that you'll wear it around the house with fuzzy slippers, too.

    Promising review: "I bought this to wear currently at the end of my pregnancy and afterwards. For the July heat, it’s been so perfect. The material is so lightweight it’s like wearing nothing at all, and it fits over my giant belly with no problem. After the baby it will be great for easy nursing access and total comfort. I have been living in this, from wearing it to a hot outdoor party and parade, to just lounging around the house, but could just as easily dress it up for going out to dinner. For the price you can’t go wrong with this cute, effortless dress." —Lauren

    Get it from Amazon for $30.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in seven colors).

    4. High-rise biker shorts to temporarily replace your leggings when your limbs demand a little more breathing room — and in this heat!??! Who could blame them!? Oh, and FYI, these have pockets.

    "I got a pair of these for summer runs and y'all, I live in them now. They're in my laundry pile at this precise moment and I'm mad about it. The fabric is lightly compressive but comfortable and fully pass the squat test, plus the pockets are extremely handy. I wear them to run and also with oversized shirts for a ~look~." —Emma Lord

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes XS-5XL and in 37 colors).

    5. A drawstring romper that I will personally be living in this summer. It's got all the comfort of the pajama set you've been wearing to bed since 1893, but it's a romper and ergo a *lot* more chic.

    Promising review: "I LOVE this romper! It was perfect for walking around in hot Savannah and I received many compliments. Not only is it comfortable and soft, but looks so chic. Obsessed!" —Jennifer Ferrara

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 11 colors).

    6. A chiffon tank and dress hybrid with an asymmetric design that is like your favorite cami, but *le gasp* several million times more fashionable. Pair this with leggings for a look that is both put-together and comfortable.

    Promising review: "Love this top! Unexpected and fun. Comfortable and easy to wear. I can throw it over jeans and be polished for work while still feeling like I’m wearing a T-shirt." —Mj23

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in five colors).

    7. A tank and shorts two-piece, because there is truly nothing better than a matching set. Going to the grocery store? On a socially-distanced hike? For a bike ride? To sleep? This outfit is appropriate for each scenario.

    Get it from Boohoo for $16 (originally $40, available in sizes 12-24).

    8. A V-neck mini dress that is equal parts comfy and chic: breezy fabric makes it perfect for hot days (*begins to sweat at the the thought of humidity*), the fun ruffles and pattern make for an obligatory Insta story.

    reviewer wearing blue ruffled mini dress

    Promising review: "I wore this to my wedding rehearsal and dinner. I love the ruffles and the loose fit! I originally bought the teal green, but I had to go back and order the other two colors. Plus, this has pockets!" —Lg

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in three colors).

    9. A tie front off-shoulder blouse you'll be tempted to purchase in every color (there's 17 of 'em available, for reference). This is here to nudge your old high school gym tee into retirement: not only is the design *chefs kiss*, but the breezy material makes it comfier than what you typically wear to bed.,

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this blouse. I bought pants to match and the outfit is gorgeous. The blouse fits well, stays off the shoulders without messing with it all night, and it's really comfy." —Heather N.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 17 colors).

    10. A coordinating sports bra and high-waisted leggings with a breathtaking pattern and fun, vibrant colors that *will* make all of your other activewear seem dull. Sorry in advance.

    Rochelle Porter Design is a Black-owned fashion brand that focuses on sustainability by using organic and recycled materials. Plus, the travel-inspired prints are s-t-u-n-n-i-n-g: we're talking tons of color and bold designs that pay homage to Rochelle's Caribbean roots.

    Get the sports bra for $44 (available in sizes XS-2XL) and the leggings for $69 (available in sizes XS-XL) from RochellePorterDesign on Etsy.

    11. An ultra soft terry jumpsuit for anyone who despises having to choose both a top and bottom (way too time-consuming) *and* doesn't like dresses (what if there's a breeze?). Presenting the cozy, versatile one-and-done solution.

    reviewer wearing the jumpsuit in olive green

    Promising review: "So soft and so comfortable! I love this jumpsuit. It seriously feels like you’re wearing your pajamas, which is amazing." —Andrea

    Get it from Amazon for $34 (available in sizes XS-XXL and in four colors).

    12. A V-neck maxi dress, because life's too short to not hop in on the tie-dye trend. It's everywhere — you can't help but be enticed. This cozy number means an easy, comfy way to add a pop of pattern to your wardrobe.,

    Promising review: "Love this dress! It's exactly what I was looking for. Maxi with sleeves and pockets. It is a little long but works well with a little heel. I also added a belt to give more shape. Super cute, soft, and comfortable!" —Melissa

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in 24 colors).

    13. A black tank with all the comfort of your favorite tee, but those straps? Too trendy. Let's just say wearing that strapless bra will be worth the comfort + compliments alone.

    model wearing blank flowy tank

    Get it from Target for $19.99 (available in sizes X-4X and in four colors).

    14. A scoop neck swing dress ideal for curling up on the couch with a good book *or* for grocery store runs in which you buy ice cream, ice cream, and more ice cream (what else does one buy at the grocery store, right?).

    reviewer wearing red T-shirt dress three different ways with a denim jacket, cardigan and heels, and denim jacket and sneakers

    Promising review: "So, so comfortable and fits exactly as described. This is definitely my go-to dress when I need something cute and nice-looking to throw on quickly. The navy-and-red striped dress is perfect with flip-flops and keeps me nice and cool in the North Carolina heat!" —Bebe

    Get it from Amazon for $20 (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 14 colors).

    15. A bow-front jumpsuit that can be paired with sneakers for more casual affairs or heels for fancy occasions. Plus, the fabric is so comfortable you'll be tempted to wear it during your next Netflix binge. Go ahead. I encourage it.

    reviewer wearing navy blue and white striped tank jumpsuit

    Promising review: "The fabric is SUPER soft and comfortable. The pants are a little long when I’m barefoot, but I love that they’re at a perfect length when I wear heels. Also, the front tie can be tied in a number of different ways; I didn’t realize that when I bought it, and it was a pleasant surprise. Verdict: this jumpsuit is cute, comfy, flattering, and at a great price — it’s worth the buy!" —Mylee

    Get it from Amazon for $14.29+ (available in sizes S-XL).

    16. A V-neck midi dress that's making me want to walk through my garden, and I don't even have a garden! It's got an A-line fit but gentle smocking at the middle, meaning it will cinch (but not pinch at) your waist.

    model wearing V-neck pink floral dress with decorative buttons

    Get it from ModCloth for $79 (available in sizes XS-4X and in five colors).

    17. A sleeveless tee because humidity has arrived and with it, an endless amount of sweat. Presenting the easiest way to wear as little clothing as possible while still feeling dressed up enough for that daily walk. You’re welcome.


    Promising review: "I originally bought these as lounge shirts, but I can already tell I'll be wearing them out. Made from a great, soft material, good for larger-chested women, and the length is somewhere between a long tee and a tunic. Could easily be worn with a fancy necklace or dressed down with shorts. So versatile and price is right!" —elleem

    Get it from Amazon for $12+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in nine colors).

    18. High-waist leggings, aka the delicious bread and butter of any WFH wardrobe. These provide awesome compression, come in a variety of fab solids and prints, *plus* have over 7,000 positive reviews.

    reviewer wearing leopard print leggings

    Promising review: "These are the best pair of leggings I own, period. I've been a Fabletics fan for quite a while, but these are the new favorite. I'd say they're similar to the Lululemon Align, but that's not being fair to these leggings. The Lulus were not squat-proof, lighter weight, not a good fit, and didn't look good. These look amazing, feel amazing, and are squat-proof. I'll definitely be ordering more." —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $29.99 (available in women's sizes XS–XL and 26 patterns).

    19. A swing dress destined to be on constant rotation in your summer wardrobe (the poor thing will never get a break). The jersey knit material is super lightweight and the design itself isn't clingy, aka this will really pull through on days where "I'm dripping sweat" doesn't even begin to cover it.

    Promising review: "I bought this dress on a whim because I needed a plain black dress. I spent a few hours at the mall trying to look for something like this before giving up and ordering this one hoping it would be ok. Well, it has surpassed my expectations! This dress is a thick, cottony soft, flowy material, is so flattering, and it does not wrinkle easily." —T.Fia

    Get it from Amazon for $20.95+ (available in sizes S-XL and in five colors).

    20. Stretchy wide leg palazzo pants here to make your *leggings* feel rigid. There's a ton of different patterns to choose from, the high-rise elastic band doesn't dig into your belly button, plus they're super soft but still easy to dress up. Heaven = found.

    reviewer wearing navy pants with pink floral design

    Promising review: "I waited almost a year to review these partially because I wanted to see how they would hold up and because I kept forgetting to write one. Almost one year later and I'm still in love with these pants. Super comfortable and a main staple in my work wardrobe. Tight enough to sit on your hips without falling down or suffocating you, they flow loose around the thighs and calves. Perfect for work, interview, or a night out to dinner." —Elena Welte

    Get them from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes S-3X and in 18 colors).

    21. A tie front jumpsuit bound to get you a minimum of 900 compliments on your next Facetime wine night. This basically *feels* like a swimsuit coverup, but isn’t see-through.

    model wearing the white and green floral tank jumpsuit

    Get it from Aerie for $41.21 (originally $54.95, available in sizes XXS-XXL and in two colors).

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 25 colors).

    23. A cropped leg unitard so sleek, I feel like this is all the motivation I need to go for a run!? This formfitting number is equipped with SPF 30 UV protection and a stretchy material that has *just* the right amount of compression.

    Promising review: "This onesie is sooo comfy and cute. Fits so nice and feels amazing. Perfect for lounging at home, running errands, yoga, working out, just about everything." —Kalia

    Get it from Free People for $88 (available in sizes XS/S-M/L and in five colors).

    24. A halter maxi dress with a smocked bodice, ruffled bottom, an open back worthy of drool, and adjustable back straps that mean a bra may not be necessary (SO LONG, PAINFUL UNDERWIRE). Let's all do this together: *swoon*,

    Promising review: "Absolutely one of the most gorgeous summer dresses I own, and for the price? It's amazing." —metta

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 19 colors).

    25. Drawstring linen shorts for a chic upgrade to your pajama bottoms. The high-rise elastic waistband ensures a comfy fit that can easily slide on over swimsuit bottoms, plus large pockets mean yo don't have to carry a purse if you don't want to.

    Promising review: "OMG these shorts are so comfortable and so adorable that I grabbed one in every color." —Tita

    Get them from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 17 colors).

    26. A V-neck jumpsuit that I would very much like to live in all weekend, thank you very much. With its elasticized waistband, cozy knit material, and fantastic purple hue? I mean, what more could one want!?

    Get it from Lilly's Kloset for $42 (available in sizes S-M).

    27. A breezy V-neck maxi dress with "summer uniform" written all over it in invisible ink, National Treasure style. This is the ideal number to throw on when you're in a rush which, let's face it, is pretty much always.,

    Reviewers suggest going ordering one size down if you don't want a loose, oversized fit.

    Promising review: "I purchased this to have as a dinner dress for a cruise that my husband and I went on this past winter. It is very over-sized and loose so I ended up just wearing it as a walkaround lounge dress. But it is very comfortable and has pockets so that's a plus! The striped colors are cute too!" —Red's Wife

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 16 colors).

    28. A colorblock cocktail dress that looks ultra professional (who woke up on time this morning? you!) but is actually deceivingly comfortable: it's made from a soft spandex jersey that feels like butter.

    reviewer wearing pink dress with denim jacket

    Promising review: "I now own this in two colors and that is not enough! Everything is perfect with this skirt from the fit to the comfort and versatility. It can easily be dressed up with a bralette and blazer or down with tennis shoes and a knotted tee. Obsessed and want it in every color." —rensespy

    Get it from Free People for $50 (available in sizes XS-L and in 13 colors).

    32. High-waisted bell bottoms with a truly snazzy design (think leopard and snakeskin patterns galore) that are surprisingly cozy, to boot. Comfort + style worthy of a fashion blog = the only aesthetic I want to attain this year.,

    Promising review: "I wore these to a concert and got SO many compliments! They are very high-waisted (above hips). They are the best high-waisted, bell-bottom pants I have ever worn. SUPER soft and comfortable too! They feel like soft cotton, stretchy material but still 'hold' everything in. Must. Buy." —Midwest

    Get them from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes XS-L and in nine colors and patterns).

    33. A cropped tee and shorts combo that says “I went out of my way to try this morning” when you, in fact, did not. Throw your hair up in a messy bun, slip on some sneaks, and bam! The aesthetic du jour is chic.

    model wearing black biker shorts and black sleeved tee

    Get it from Boohoo for $12 (originally $30, available in sizes 4-10 and in two colors).

    34. A T-shirt dress so ridiculously soft, your body will feel as if it's being enveloped by a fluffy cloud made of kittens and all other fantastic baby animals that come to mind.,

    Psst, you can easily pair this with booties, a leather jacket, and some statement earrings for an outfit that is both trendy and comfy.

    Promising review: "This is SO CUTE! I can’t wait to wear it this this summer. Many have said they used it as a swimsuit cover up, but I will definitely be wearing this as a casual maxi dress! The material is slightly silky and very substantial — definitely more substantial than just a cover up. You can even tie up the front into a knot for a cute hi-low look. Just make sure to size up for a more relaxed fit!" —Richie P.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.98+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 30 colors).

    35. A knit jumpsuit made from a buttery soft material that feels like luxury against your skin. If you want to feel like you're wearing pajamas while sending emails and calling into meetings from 9-5, you'll probably wish you added this to cart sooner.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in seven colors).

    36. A button-up shirt dress for anyone who misses their jeans. I personally don’t get it, but this is a much more comfortable version of your favorite denim.

    model wearing the light blue tie waist dress

    Get it from Mango for $39.99 (originally $99.99, available in sizes 10-18).

    37. Drawstring joggers that have a tapered silhouette yet are equally as cozy as your fleece rubber duck PJ bottoms, but (no offense) a lot more polished.


    Promising review: "I was on the hunt to find the perfect joggers and I finally found these. I literally tried and ordered about five different styles from here and other retailers. These are EXACTLY what I was looking for — super soft, comfy, fitted but not tight, and affordable." —Kerbear74

    Get it from Amazon for $13.74+ (available in sizes XS-3XL and in two colors).

    38. A high-waist midi skirt equipped with pockets — so in addition to the obvious trend factor, you'll also have a place to rest your hands. No more of that intimidating crossed arms nonsense.

    reviewer wearing skirt in red with white polka dots

    Promising review: "I love this skirt! The coffee color is perfect for fall and you can pair it with a sweater for those colder days. I can also easily transition this to warmer weather with a simple T-shirt. Love the fit and love the pockets!" —tiaalesewong

    Get it from Amazon for $25.89+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 13 colors).
