If sweats and “soft clothes” were the definitive uniform for the first year (sigh) of the pandemic, luxe loungewear may as well be the second. As human beings, it’s in our nature to make the most of any situation and that’s exactly what we’re seeing in the fashion world as labels turn to clothing that exudes comfort and ease of wear. And celebs are heading the call, doing everything from virtually attending award shows to grocery shopping in bedroom-ready robes and gowns.

From Chrissy Teigen’s go-to boots plus robe ensemble to Selena Gomez’s silky yet sleek pajama top look, loungewear flawlessly strikes that balance between off- and on-duty. Here are several styles to help you pull off this versatile aesthetic:
