These Editor-Approved Loungewear Sets Are All You Need in 2022

These comfy classics are getting us through the rest of winter.

With the winter months comes snuggles under warm blankets, layers under puffer jackets and the holy grail of all comfort — sweats. Sweatshirts and sweatpants are an unbeatable combo when the weather takes a turn. When the forecast drops, all we want to do is stay inside in our cozy clothes and keep away from the cold. Instead of reaching for your worn-in old hoodie and joggers, consider a loungewear set that is not only wildly comfortable, but makes you look put together (even though you may or may not have spent all day cemented onto the couch).

Have sweats always been stylish? That's neither here nor there, but one thing is for sure – this trend absolutely took off at the height of the stay-at-home orders due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Remember those days of early April 2020 when we were bleach-dyeing our old clothes at home and living in pajamas day in and day out? Enter: matching loungewear sets. 

The options are endless. Try choosing between hoodies with joggers, bell sleeves and flare fits, waffle and teddy knits, and suddenly you don't know what you want or need anymore. In order to narrow down the list of choices, I've recruited the help of InStyle's writers and editors to dish on their favorite comfortable yet cute sets that they find themselves living in day after day.  

Whether you're looking to make a fashion statement, hang around the house, or run errands, you can rest assured that you'll find the ideal loungewear set in the list below. Read on to find out which sets are solidifying their places in our closets in 2022.

These are the loungewear sets we recommend:

Best Overall: Spanx AirLuxe 'At the Hip' Pullover and Tapered Pant

Style, comfort, and versatility all wrapped up into one? That's what makes this set the best overall. Lifestyle e-Commerce Writer Nina Huang swears by the buttery-soft spacer fabric that feels like the, "the most comfortable bras you can buy." While you may think of fuzzy or fleece fabrics when it comes to loungewear, this set goes to show that comfort comes in many different forms. "Ever since the brand sent the collection my way to try out, I haven't stopped reaching for them first whenever I need a pair of comfortable joggers or sweatshirts that are so breathable and soft at the same time," she raves.

With work-from-home still being a very real part of our lives, we find ourselves in comfortable sweatshirts and pants more than usual. However, the sleek design of this set includes a high neck and athletic jogger style that elevates your average sweats, making this set a go-to when hanging out in the home office. "My favorite from the lineup is the Tapered Pant, which looks so put together without sacrificing an ounce of comfort," Huang adds. For those who want the comfort of loungewear but the polish of workwear, this set has you covered.

Softest Fabric: Softies Dream Lounge Set

As if a good Amazon find doesn't make your day enough, having this dreamlike set Primed to your door is almost too good to be true. E-Commerce Content Strategy Manager Hannah Freedman swears by this soft and lightweight two piece. "This set looks chic enough that I've worn it on the plane, but it feels like I'm wearing pajamas. I wore this while at home for the holidays and my mom and sister loved it so much they both ended up buying a set too," she says." Did we mention it's also Oprah-approved

Freedman takes extra care to preserve her set by line drying after washing to prevent pilling and shrinking. She also advises taller wearers (over 5'8") to size up or the crew neck and pants may be a little short. We know what comfy set we're adding to the cart next!

Warmest: Naadam Recycled Cashmere Hoodie and Joggers

Not only is this set crazy comfortable, it also has an appealing sustainable element for conscientious shoppers. Leftover yarn and cashmere scraps from Naadam's previous products are recycled and made new again into this fabulously warm sweater set. Can we get a round of applause?

According to Product Reviews Coordinator Ruby Grais, the set is definitely something to write home about. "I'm actually wearing the hoodie right now as I type because it's so warm." I've worn both the joggers and hoodie together to the office, and on one particularly bitter cold day they kept me warm without needing to add any layers underneath," she adds.

Grais highly recommends this set to "anyone who's always cold (like me) and loves cashmere but wants to make conscious, ethical choices for clothing." When a set this warm and fuzzy is also a win for the environment, it's a win for us.

Most Lightweight: Urban Outfitters Out From Under Sweet Dreams Long Sleeve Top and Boyshorts

The thing about a loungewear set is the versatility it holds. Will you wear it together as one whole 'fit, or switch it up with a pair of cool jeans or a tank top? Or maybe you can opt for a summery set with a lightweight long sleeve and shorts? That's exactly what Erin Johnson, Seniors Product Reviews Writer, chose to do. 

Johnson knows that style is an important factor when finding that perfect set. She states that, "While the top priority in a good loungewear set is comfort, I don't want to feel frumpy while  wearing it. This set makes me feel, dare I say, sexy?" Pairing the look together is a power move, but wearing the pieces interchangeably is another perk when you purchase. Johnson says she will "even pair the top with jeans for a quick run to the coffee shop." There are comparable (and much pricier) sets from other brands, but this cute two piece looks just as good.

Curve-enhancing style aside, this set is a great option for those who run a bit hot or like to keep their apartment warm. Because who actually likes to sweat in sweats? Johnson recommends this to "someone who loves loungewear but keeps their home too hot to lounge in sweats." 'Nuff said.

Most Sustainable: For Better Days Original Sweatshirt and Fleece Jogger

Style feels so much more gratifying when you know it's sustainable. Huang says that For Days is a brand she's been interested in for a while due to their zero-waste policy and promotion of circular fashion. "I was pleased to find that its clothes live up to the hype in terms of how cozy and soft they feel. My favorite is the unisex For Better Days sweatshirt, which is lightweight but warm enough to wear in the winter," she says. 

For Days understands the trials and tribulations of everyday life, encouraging you to "wear, tear, stain and stretch" your clothing. Once you've had your time with your pieces, you are able to exchange it for an entirely new selection. Huang touches on this policy, saying "I love that when the day comes when I might want to trade it in for another style, For Days will let me mail back this sweatshirt in exchange for credit to pick up a new sweatshirt."

She suggests that your next purchase (or swap) be the Re-New For Days Fleece Joggers if you're looking for something a bit cozier. Best part about this piece? The recycled cotton material.

Most Inclusive: Light N Fluffy Waffle Knit Scoop Top and Sleep Shorts

We can confidently say that that set is worth living in. No really, take it from Tamim Alnuweiri, e-Commerce Beauty Writer, who says, "As I write this I have been in this set for two days straight except for a half hour when I took a bath." With its micro-textured waffle knit fabric, these pieces feel amazing on even the most sensitive skin. But ultra-soft fabric aside, the real selling point here is the brand's inclusive sizing. Available in sizes 4XS to 4XL, you can confidently shop this site knowing that you'll find just the right size. 

As if there wasn't enough to love, Alnuweiri compiled a laundry list of reasons she adores this set. "The aesthetics of the waffle knit look, the shorts have pockets, it's loose enough to be comfortable but not like wearing a [tent]." The list goes on. She recommends this shorts and long sleeve set to "literally anyone and everyone who wants to be comfortable at home."

This set is made up of a brushed, sustainable fiber fabric that comes in multiple muted colors to fit seamlessly with your everyday wardrobe. Another perk? Both of the pieces are available in sizes XS to 3XL, so you can find pieces that fit just right.

Best Splurge: Brunette the Label The Ribbed Knit Half-Zip Popover and Pants

Though Health and Wellness Lead Braelyn Wood has only owned this loungewear set for a month, she knows her life is changed because of it. "When I want to feel equal parts chic and comfortable, I always go for this ribbed knit loungewear set from Brunette the Label. I was gifted the set in early December but would gladly splurge on the full set in other colorways," she says.

Quality is key when spending a pretty penny on loungewear, which is why the thick material of these pieces make them all the more worth it. Composed of a ribbed knit viscose material, the fabric is resistant to stretching even after hours of wear. Wood vouches for the versatility of this set as well, saying, "I love that each piece is well structured, so it looks more put together than typical loungewear. Plus, the designs are so classic, they can also be worn individually as staple pieces in your wardrobe." In her eyes, the price is well worth the investment, as the pieces go "beyond a comfy sleepover fit."
