You're not a regular dog mom, you're a cool dog mom.From Marie Claire
2020 may have had its ups and downs (mostly the latter, if we're being totally honest), but if there's one silver lining to an otherwise trying year, it's this: A rediscovered appreciation for all things cozy and comfortable. (I, for one, may never wear heels ever again.)However, you don't need us to tell you that we're in a golden age of loungewear; and if you ask us, Lululemon's gained extra points with pieces that are equal parts functional and comfortable. (Anyone who's tried a pair of Align leggings can back me up here.) With features like hidden and/or zippered pockets and buttery-soft, techy fabrics, Lululemon loungewear makes up some of the most versatile key pieces we're living in this season. Ahead, the essentials to take you from home to outdoor errands to your yoga mat. At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff.

Align Wide Leg Crop 23"The entire Align collection has something for everyone: Leggings at various lengths (something that a 5'2 gal like me sincerely appreciates), insanely soft tops, and palazzo-pant-inspired crops that you can still do downward-facing dog in.What They're Saying: "Almost all I wear are Align leggings and these are a great addition for a little more variety. These are slightly cropped, but still so cute with a t-shirt and some tennis shoes for errands or hanging around the house."lululemon Align™ Wide Leg Crop 23", $, available at lululemonAll Aligned Mock Neck Long SleeveAnother loungeworthy fave that you'll be reaching for again and again: This slightly cropped mock neck top that will replace all your other turtleneck base layers.What They're Saying: "This top is super soft, and the length is so flattering. I bought two colors and now buying two more — I never want to take this off! I love that I can pair this with anything. The mock neck is not restrictive at all for those who might not like things near their neck. I think it's because the material is so thin and soft."lululemon All Aligned Mock Neck Long Sleeve, $, available at lululemonReady to Rulu Jogger 29"Who doesn't love a good jogger?

I bought this chair because I needed to invest in something ergonomic with good back and neck support, due to a pinched nerve in my lower neck. After several iterations of gradually breaking a cheap-wad swivel desk chair every couple years, I sprung for the kind of chair gamers use for long periods of sitting and upper body movement. No more rotating the base to the right angle so I'm not leaning sideways, and never quite getting it right. No more backaches from leaning forward in a low-backed chair, or not being able to lean back and see the screen. (I also added an external display at eye level for my MacBook.) The lumbar support is like nothing I have ever experienced! This chair was easy to assemble, and the parts include the very few tools you will need. The only controls are for height and recline, so it's nice and simple, with fewer moving parts to break.

"All we wear is sweatpants now" has been repeated so often that it'll surely go down in history as a trope of 2020. But at a time when, collectively, our minds have turned into scrambled eggs and our emotions are more twisty than an M. Night Shyamalan feature, nobody should feel down about for dressing for comfort. (Though branching out is good, too!) That's why we heartily support the continuation of The Year Of Fleece with the following 10 pairs of elevated sweats and track pants from Nike.

Lounge, jog, primal scream, and feel all the turbulent feelings in them. These pants were technically invented for physical activity, but fashion adapts to the context in which it's lived — and so do we.At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff.
