A surprisingly chic oversized hoodie dress that’s ready to replace your worn-out college hoodie permanently.

Amazon, amazon.com

Lots of reviewers also posted pics of them rocking this with over-the-knee boots, so it’ll double as a going-out look when you’re actually, well, going out again.

Promising review: “Flattering, sexy, and ridiculously comfy. We have all had the experience of getting home from a night on the town and being so happy and relieved to take off our clothes and put on our comfy wear. Well, I wore this for the first time tonight, came home, took my boots off and then realized I didn’t want to change. My main issue with this dress is that I’m going to have to fight with myself not to sleep in it regularly! I’m going to order another one or two of these and may even buy a few for Christmas presents for my sister and mom. We all have completely different body types and this will look amazing on us all. Please make this in more colors so my friends will know that I’m not wearing the same thing every day.” —Susan K

A chill tank dress future cozy you will ~tank~ present you for buying.


Promising review: “I bought this dress because it was an inexpensive alternative to a tank top and yoga pants while working at home. It’s so light and breezy, yet it isn’t revealing. I love it, so I ordered a few more in various colors.” —Kenlie

Say it with me: It has pockets!!!

Promising review: “I got this dress since I’m working at home now and spending tons of time at my computer. The soft knit fabric is really comfortable for sitting in my home office chair most of the day and still looking nice for time with my hubby. The lace trim at the hem adds a bit of whimsy. It’s a bit shorter than I expected (and I’m only 5 feet tall), but it’s a great work-at-home dress. Gonna try to order the same dress in other colors. Only one tiny issue: the sleeves are really long — had to fold them into little cuffs.” —Dawn Writer

Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in seven colors, with long or short sleeves).


A sophisticated-but-sexy nightshirt you can wear approximately a zillion ways. By itself, with leggings, buttoned up, unbuttoned over another top or bralette…the possibilities are endless.


Promising review: “Great value. I love these nightshirts! I have two and am ordering more. They’re roomy but not huge, and the fabric is going to be perfect for our Phoenix summer. They’re also cute as heck with leggings!” —J. Clark

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

Promising review: “I ordered this dress not expecting much for the price, but I do have to say I was pleasantly surprised! It was super comfy! The sleeves aren’t super short, but not too long either! The length comes right to the middle of my knees (I’m 5-foot-5). I’m definitely buying some other colors!” —Nanci Z.

Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 10 colors).

Promising review: “Fits well and comfortable! I typically wear a L/XL (mostly XL) in T-shirts and I bought these in a large, as I didn’t want the dress to look like a tent on me. It fit perfectly.

I sleep in it, cook in it, lounge on the couch in it, take the dogs out in it, and I put it on as soon as I get home from work. I love the material. I’ve washed this five or six times now and it is still in excellent condition! Thank you.” —Rachel Brown

Promising review: “I live in a hot, humid climate and am always looking for cool dresses to wear around the house that don’t look frumpy. Love the pattern. Fits a little larger than expected and that’s okay. Pockets are a nice bonus. Nice drape. Would buy again.” —Mervin D. Hart

Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 15 colors).


One of Free People’s iconic strappy slip dresses, which you can wear inside, outside, over other clothes, under other clothes…however the heck you want!

Free People

Promising review: “I loved this look and couldn’t decide on color so I got two, pink and white! I’m usually an extra small/small and opted for the small and I’m glad I did! Perfect fit! Top half is like a bralette with supportive built-in padding, and the bottom is flowy and perfect like every Free People dress ever!” —Tarabahm

amazon.com, amazon.com

Reviewers say it runs a bit large!

Promising review: “Very comfortable, love the pockets! I wanted an easy maxi dress to lounge around the house during the hot summer, and this is perfect. Super lightweight, thin but not see-through. Very happy with my purchase! I got a size 6, and I’m 5 feet tall and 114 lbs. The dress fits loose and comfortably, which is what I wanted.” —L.

Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes 4-22 and in 11 prints).


A super comfortable snake print dress for when you’re missing having places to wear cute outfits but also don’t want to wear anything that’s not soft and stretchy as heck. Ssssseriously, that’s a major mood.


Promising review: “This dress is sooo comfortable. It looks better in person in my opinion. Just like in the picture, it is close to the body without being huggy or a body-con. The arms are not tight and there’s no weird sagging in the sleeves from the open shoulders. This dress can really go from day to night. A new favorite for me.” —MACH 5

Get it from Torrid for $75.50 (available in sizes 00X-6X). Get it in black here.


A Wildfox striped T-shirt dress that would def be cute with ankle boots, but for now? I think it’ll be très chic with slipper socks and a glass of wine. Oooh la la.


I’m a longtime fan of this brand, which is known for their unbelievably soft and cozy fabric.

Get it from Wildfox for $98 (available in sizes XS-XL).


An eye-catching long-sleeved dress with POCKETS that’s a simple shape but still anything but boring.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “This dress has a beautiful floral print that’s perfect for any occasion. Date night, work, party, hanging around the house. I am always looking for clothes that can be versatile. The best part of this dress is the material. Sometimes T-shirt dresses are a stiff cotton material that just isn’t very comfortable, and it’s always hard to tell when buying online. The material on this dress, though, is so nice. It’s light, stretchy, and so soft. The fit is great and the dress is flowy, but nice and form-fitting around the arms. Great buy!” —B Siegel

Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in sizes S-3XL and in 13 colors and prints).


A twirl-worthy floral babydoll, because just because you’re spending most of this spring inside, doesn’t mean you should skip the seasonal tradition of wearing floral sundresses 24/7.

Forever 21

Get it from Forever 21 for $17.99 (available in sizes S-L and in two colors).


A cuddly hooded maxi that’s kind of like a Snuggie, but make it fashion.

amazon.com, Amzon

Reviewers say it has some stretch and runs a bit on the large side!

Promising review: “I’m typically a medium/large in clothing. The large was a little big, I could have gone with a medium. (I’m 5-foot-4 and 160 lbs). That’s OK with me, since I wanted the dress to wear as a lounge dress when I’m at home relaxing. It’s perfect! When the dress arrived, I was surprised to see that the dress was a beautiful color, just like the picture, and super soft! I will be ordering another one!” —Kathryn A. Majkrzak

Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in nine colors and prints).


A sweet slip dress with an adjustable waist tie so you can give it some shape or keep things loose. And when it’s time to leave the house? Toss on a jean jacket and sneaks and you’ve got an instant outfit.


Get it from ModCloth for $59 (available in sizes XS-4X). Get it in tie-dye here.

Free People

Promising review: “Obsessed. This is my favorite item in my closet. I bought every color. I sized up for a baggy look. There’s a lot of leg showing, but nothing a stitch or two didn’t fix.” —vanel

Get it from Free People for $108 (available in sizes XS-XL and in five colors).


A chill maxi with pockets for stashing stay-in essentials like your phone, snacks, and the ChapStick you really don’t want to have to stand up to get.

Reviewers say it’s long enough to even work for tall folks!

Promising review: “I’ve ordered four of these now! They are so comfy, well-made, and beautiful. I get so many compliments when I wear them. I can dress them up for a night out or to go to work. They’re so comfortable, I can wear them around the house and even to bed! And when I wake up after sleeping in one, I can brush my teeth and hair and walk right out the door, and look great! I paired this $20 dress with a $7 pendant necklace from Walmart and the reaction from several people was, ‘Wow! You look really nice today,’ even from strangers. I’m 5’7″, 155 lbs, and a little busty. Medium fits perfectly. It’s a perfect length on me with a heel; a little long for flats. For flats or bare feet, I just gather it and tie a knot near my shin and it drapes beautifully from that.” —JannyBananny

Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 14 colors and prints).


A luxe midi slip dress you can layer under your fave robe so you can wander to the kitchen to get coffee while giving off that effortlessly glam vibe of a high society lady who’s just been rudely awakened from her slumber.

Urban Outfitters

Promising review: “Love how swingy it is! I also love that it’s got the wide straps. It’s a little sheer, but looks more substantial than slip dresses usually do. Hope they offer more colors and patterns!” —RKZB

Get it from Urban Outfitters for $89 (available in sizes XS-L).


A summery sleeveless tunic that’s easy and breezy for the days when the hassle of putting on both a top AND bottoms just feels like too much.


Promising review: “A wonderful flowing dress to wear around the house and out. I had surgery around the stomach area and I wanted something loose to wear and this was a perfect dress to lounge around in and to go places when I did. For a size 14-16, get the XL.” —Tami Lemley

Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 26 colors and prints).


An effortless collared tunic you can easily pair with sandals for a quick errand run.


Promising review: “WOW it’s perfect! Looks great with wedges, sneakers, flip flops, etc.! I’m so glad it has pockets. I’m between an extra small and a small and I got the small and it’s perfect.” —greatbuys

Get it from Anthropologie for $128 (available in sizes XS-XL and in two colors).


And a bold-hued slip dress to literally brighten your indoor days (including today, since it’s on major sale).
