I’m the self-proclaimed grandma of my friend group. Most Saturday nights, I'd rather stay at home on my couch under a blanket than venture out to meet up for drinks. (And if there happens to be a new Korean drama series or movie out, then you definitely won't see me.) Lounging around is the best feeling ever because it doesn't require you to get too dressed up or even muster up the effort to put lotion on your face. But on the off-chance that you need to step outside your home, you can now lounge in both comfort and style. Browse through our favorite cozy "couch outfits," then shop the exact pieces. If you are forever a homebody, then FYI: Marie Claire editors have the best work from home outfit ideas too.

Sweatpants Set

Sweatpants are the ultimate lazy-girl staple and almost everyone has a pair. (If you don't, here are our recs.) To turn your sweats into a cute outfit you can leave your house in—trips to the grocery store for snacks are essential—wear it with a coordinating pullover shirt or hoodie. Full sweat sets instantly make you look pulled together and take the stress out of rummaging through your closet for something that matches. You can even take the "cute" factor one step further into cool territory like Rihanna by styling your set with heels.

Track Pants

What's a step up from sweats? Track pants, especially if they have side stripes or button embellishments. The sporty bottoms are as easy to wear as your favorite cotton joggers, but give off a stronger athelsiure vibe. You can style them with a track jacket, t-shirt, or even a crop top come summertime.

A Workout Set

Matching workout sets make me happy and are personally part of my WFH and weekend wardrobe. Just like a sweats set, slipping into a coordinating workout top and bottom takes away the pain of getting dressed. You know everything matches already and you know you look good/feel comfortable. If heeled booties aren't for you, stick to sneakers and sandals. Feeling cold? Layer a cute athleisure jacket over your set.
