Sweatpants and a hoodie might have been the quintessential lockdown look, but with the warm weather out in full force — and reason to hope for some semblance of normality on the horizon — it’s clear that we’re all in need of an easy outfit upgrade. Though we might not be battling sweltering subway rides as much as usual this spring and summer, the change in temperature still calls for a style overhaul, which sadly means putting the heavier joggers to the back of the closet for another year.
Don’t panic, we aren’t suggesting going back to normal clothes just yet (who even remembers what jeans feel like?). Instead, we recommend something light, loose and suitably comfortable to see you through sunnier days. The answer? A good ol' fashioned house dress. We aren’t talking about restrictive bodices and heavy fabrics, either: these light and airy and sometimes sustainable creations give your body breathing space as temperatures begin to rise.
