As you've been rotating through the same comfy staples, you might be realizing that the majority of your closet hasn't been touched in months. Those luxe pieces you once worn to work and nights out might not feel appropriate to wear while you're spending the days in bed or on the couch. But you'd be surprised by how some of your fanciest pieces are just as cozy, if not more, than your loungewear. For instance, a slip dress is equally snug and stylish. Plus, there are endless ways to wear a slip dress at home. Whether you're eager to elevate your quarantine outfits or want to remain casual, a slip dress is an excellent replacement for sweats.
"Slip dresses are a good quarantine outfit because it’s an easy, comfortable one-piece to wear around the house," Angela Gahng, founder of Almina Concept, tells TZR. "It's super soft, lightweight, and drapes perfect to fit your body. It’s like you never got out of bed." The Los Angeles-based label serves up every wardrobe staple you need (think: slip dresses, blazers, jumpsuits, trousers). But Almina Concept is notable for its sleek slip dresses, which Gahng says she's seeing her customers style in a slew of ways. "We are seeing women wear slip dresses with sweatshirts over them and easy cardigan. Or women are throwing on a blazer for their Zoom work meetings. It can be styled up or down with most essentials in your wardrobe."
