Lounge wear is so 2020, with things opening up and more of us getting out and about the last thing we want to throw on is a lounge wear set. Don’t get me wrong I love them for working from home, but with the blue skies, spring air and the sense of optimism I am more than ready to kick my style up a notch.
This term was coined by Hill House with the idea being that the dresses are so comfortable you could nap in them. And who doesn’t want to look chic whilst taking a nap.
But, I do not necessarily want to sacrifice my comfort—enter the nap dress. This term was coined by Hill House with the idea being that the dresses are so comfortable you could nap in them. And who doesn’t want to look chic whilst taking a nap. There is nothing new per say about this style of dress, but what a clever way to describe these uber comfy frocks.
I was inspired to do this post by a young woman I saw when I was waiting for the train, I so wished I had my phone at the ready, I would have loved to snapped a photo of her, or taken a video. Her look was so fresh and looked super comfortable. Her OOTD really caught my eye. She was wearing a long taupe colored cotton nap dress with a distressed cropped denim jacket over it, leopard print slides, and an over-sized tote. I so want to recreate this look, hence my search for the perfect nap dress. I love this take on the maxi/midi dress and I so need one in my closet. Brands like Hill House and Love Shack Fancy have been creating this style of dress for a number of seasons now, but it seems 2021 will be the year this oh so femme frock has its day in the sun.
What say you? Are you on board with this trend? Do you wear maxi or midi dresses? Is this look too homespun for you? The dresses may have a crafty vibe to them, but they can so easily be styled for an urban setting. The super distressed cropped denim jacket the young woman was wearing that I spied at the train station was such a chic way to make this more feminine piece look edgier, and was perfect for a day in the city. Wish me luck on my quest, and you just may see me sporting this loungy chic trend.
