Breaking out of our tired, pilling sweatpants seems like such a feat these days, especially when our legs have forgotten what real pants feel like; the epitome of comfort. But! The climbing temperatures may be the push we needed to break out and go for the gold: seriously comfortable dresses. Here are three knit dresses to wear now (at home), and later*.

*And by “later” we mean somewhere where they serve cocktails…with little toothpick umbrellas.

3 Cute Dresses Styled: Loungewear For Now, Summer Outfits For Later

Here are three knit dresses we think will make perfectly comfy loungewear outfits for these days at home…but could easily be dressed up as “out and about” summer outfits for later.

Sporty Zella Dress: Lounge At Home

This Zella dress is such a winner. It comes in three colors: black, a pretty blue and this grey heather. The ruched, tied hem gives it such a sporty and effortless feel. Comfy enough to lounge in with slippers and a good strong cuppa (preferably in this seriously cool — or shall I say warm — mug with matching warmer). Layer a printed hoodie or pullover for some added style and warmth on those cooler mornings.

Sporty Zella Dress: Summer Outfit

I mean…it doesn’t get easier than this. Style it up with your trusty denim jacket, cute sandals and some simple hoops, and you’re set for a night out with the girls (remember those?). Definitely feel free to skip the lipstick if your mask will be planted on your face for the entirety of the night.

Striped Midi Dress: Lounge At Home

Ahoy! Lol. Just getting some serious sailor vibes from this VERO MODA dress. So good if you have an affinity for stripes like me (and/or sailors) and love a preppier style. The waist tie is my favorite part — I love being gently cinched in. Wear now, for one of those afternoons spent in the backyard on a particularly hard, screechy lawn chair. This easy and cute dress is sure to boost your spirits and keep you dreaming of afternoons by the shore.

Striped Midi Dress: Summer Outfit

Remember those dreams of afternoons by the shore? This dress has got you covered again for when those actually exist. Looks SO perfect with a light, flowy button-down tied at the waist (one of the best clothing hacks out there). Oh, and if you’re really going for that nautical, sophisticated vibe, throw on this wide-brimmed hat. You’re killing it.

Black Tank Dress: Lounge At Home

Okay, no matter how you style this tank dress, you’ll look fabulous — in an effortless way. It exclusively has five-star reviews and claims to be ideal for “uninterrupted lazing”. Um, I have never heard of anything more ideal. Paired with my favorite sneaks (I would highly recommend!) and a silk scrunchy to contain my hairdresser-troubling hair that hasn’t seen scissors in weeks, this outfit sounds like a dream in comfort heaven.

Black Tank Dress: Summer Outfit

We’re pulling out all the stops for this bad boy. (Yes, we’re still talking about that incredibly comfy, laziness-inducing dress from above, but nobody has to know that.) This dress can be styled up with the help of a pair of heeled sandals, a pretty charm necklace, and a straw crossbody for some added summer feel. Oh, and don’t forget the finishing touch and most necessary accessory — your loyal face mask.
