As someone who considers her primary hobby to be shopping, this quarantine has been a bad influence on my already out-of-control online shopping addiction. Of course, since it’s just been announced that we now still have, at the very minimum, another 30 days of quarantine, there’s officially no point in wasting my online shopping efforts buying trendy new spring clothes that no one will ever see. That being said, I obviously still need to fulfill my retail therapy void somehow. So, I’ve turned my powers to a more timely and practical cause: loungewear. And, nothing gets me going more than a stylish matching loungewear set. Here are some cute sets that aren’t totally sold out yet but that you need to order ASAP as a means of #selfcare this quarantine season.
Whoever deemed groutfits to be a fashion faux pas clearly never experienced a global pandemic. This set from PrettyLittleThing is the groutfit of all groutfits because, not only does it look comfy af, it’s stylish too. The fitted joggers paired with the casual off-the-shoulder top make it super cute and flattering in the most effortless way. It’s great for like, those of you quarantined with your boyfriends and actually still trying to look cute. And btw, while we’re on the topic, if that is you, enough with the cutesy insta stories of you two playing Uno…we get it.
If you’re someone who is currently pursuing a lifelong career via TikTok this quarantine, then this is the set for you. It’s cute, flirty, and, most importantly, cropped. TikTok 101: You must wear a crop top or else all the cool 16-year-olds will know you’re not one of them. But, important note, you also can’t look like you’re trying too hard and like, you put on an outfit for your TikTok. At least, this is what I’ve gathered from my two weeks actively on the app… Gen Z, the floor is now yours.
As a proud owner of this set, I can vouch for it in all its value, particularly during these quarantine times. The fit is flattering and the tie-dye makes it trendy. Not to mention, the cropped sweatshirt alone is cute paired with jeans for, you know, whenever we can leave the house again.
If your #wfh style is more of a cool-girl vintage look, this Champion set is the one for you. The washed pink color is great for spring—err… at least the prospect of experiencing spring. Either way, it offers a variation to your wardrobe besides your ex’s frat hoodie and your one-night-stand’s gym shorts.
As someone who has always loved a good animal print, I’m having a hard time right now dealing with how Carole Baskin seems to be on a one-woman mission to kill the trend. However, this animal print set comes in a calming dusty blue color, a color I can’t imagine someone who would kill her husband would ever wear. (Oh, and btw, it comes with matching pants too!)
Go full blackout, just like me every single night of this quarantine, with this all black matching sweatsuit. The cropped hoodie with high waisted sweats is the perfect loungewear combo that you obviously need.
Not only is this set fashionable, it looks cozy af. It’s also in the “color of the season”, not that that even really matters right now since the spring fashion season is a moot point anyway. But hey, at least you can bask in the comfort of knowing your quarantine outfit would be considered fashion perfection.
Like the fluffy set above, this set is also a very fashionable take on a traditionally not-so-fashionable sector of the clothing biz. It’s the perfect lounge set for my fellow fashionistas thirsting to look ever so stylish during these quarantine times.
If you haven’t ever checked out Target’s clothing section during one of your “necessary” Target runs, you’ve been missing out on a gold mine of amazing pieces. Personally, I’m a huge fan of their lounge/sleep brand Stars Above, which is the brand behind this amazing tie-dye set. I own several of their lounge sets and they are the comfiest outfits ever.
Get into a neutral monochromatic look for a chic minimalistic vibe this season. It gives an illusion that you have your sh*t together during this therapy-inducing quarantine. When, in reality, you’re actually hoarding all the good snacks in your room, hidden from your siblings.
Wear this to bed or running errands, this effortlessy chic set features a heathered knit, cropped long sleeve top, and slim fit pants with an elasticized waistband and of course, pockets. This top and bottom are sold as a same size set. The best part? It’s only $24.
This set is so cute and angelic, unlike me. And, assuming you’re not wearing makeup or self-tanner during quarantine, then you can wear this all white set worry-free. Unless, of course, your quarantine snack of choice is Cheetos, then I’d probs steer clear of this one.
Okay, looking ahead here to the possibility of being quarantined all summer long, here’s a stylish set to look cute af for your FaceTime happy hours with all the men you’ve been matching with on the dating apps. The material keeps it casual, while the style makes it more feminine and fashionable. Or, if the one-shoulder crop top is too extra for you, then there’s also a long sleeve top option to pair with the shorts instead.
I loooveee me a cardigan, and I love it even more when it comes as a part of a cute Instagrammable matching set. This cropped cardigan will be so cute worn separately with jean shorts once we’re finally allowed to leave our houses again. Until then, I love it as a set with the matching chocolate shorts for a not-so-basic lounge look.
This set is literally called the Killin’ Time Jogger Set so you know it’s automatically a quarantine essential. It comes in blue, lavendar, and black so take your pick, or just get all three. Considering we’ll all just be killing time for who know how long, there’s no harm in getting them all.
This might not be a set you’d wear out and about, but right now, that’s not really a concern, is it? This soft AF waffle knit set is perfect for when you don’t want to work from home in your pajamas… but also you totally want to work from home in your pajamas. The knot detail at the waste and the flare of the pants make them just stylish enough to look presentable, and so you don’t look like you just rolled out of bed for your Zoom meetings. But if you did, no judgment—we’re all in this together.
PSA: Lounge sets everywhere are selling out fast! I’m assuming it’s because loungewear is the only thing that us online shopping addicts can justify buying right now. So if you do see a set here that you want, then DO NOT WAIT, because apparently they’re about as in-demand as toilet paper right now.

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and if you’re planning on spending it alone for, let’s say the 23rd consecutive year in a row, you might as well get prepared. If staying in alone surrounded by takeout boxes and glasses you keep forgetting to take out of your room isn’t your idea of the perfect night, you’re doing it all wrong. Here are a few super fluffy pieces you can order (like, let’s not get drastic here and take a trip outdoors) to ensure your Valentine’s Day outfit is comfy AF.
1. UGG Australia Miranda Robe
I don’t care what anyone says; I still really love Uggs. If Cardi B says they’re still okay to wear, they’re still okay to wear. This is actually just an Ugg for your entire body, which even if slightly basic, is the most wonderful thing ever.
2. A New Day Faux Fur Lined Footless Tights
I know Blair Waldorf said tights aren’t pants, but in this case, I could not give less of a shit. I wear faux fur lined footless tights as frequently as possible, because they are the greatest invention ever. I mean, they will make your legs look a little thicker than they really are, but that’s definitely better than throwing on a pair of basically see-through leggings to run downstairs to meet the delivery guy.
3. Onepiece Original Slim Onesie
Celebs are literally obsessed with Onepiece onesies (and we are too), so you should def treat yourself to one. I mean, even Kris Jenner has a few. This onesie is way better than the stupid unicorn alternatives that have been popping up everywhere, because a) it doesn’t have a fucking unicorn horn on it and b) if you were going to throw a parka and Uggs on over this, it’s not immediately obvious that you’re wearing a onesie.
4. UO Fuzzy Crew-Neck Sweatshirt
Don’t have a bae to buy you an adorable oversized teddy this Valentine’s Day? I mean, whatever, where were you going to put that anyway? Just buy yourself this sweatshirt and wear it for like, three days straight while you binge Black Mirror alone.
5. Aerie Sherpa Baseball Hat
While you’re trying to beat your personal record for most consecutive episodes watched, you really don’t want to worry about doing your hair. But, on the off chance that you want some kind of food that cannot be delivered, you can just throw on this hat, dip out for a few minutes, and hope you don’t run into anyone you know. (Sidenote: If every single type of food you want to have delivered isn’t constantly available to you at the push of a button, you need to move. Seriously.)
