In the current WFH environment, while it’s perfectly acceptable to wear your PJs 24/7, if you’re looking for a way to feel professional and buttoned up, I’d like to let you in on the most comfortable way to do so: sweater suit set.
These matching cozy sets have all the benefits of their faithful cousin, the sweatsuit, but instead of being made of ratty sweatshirt material these babies are made of sumptuous fabrics like cashmere and wool. They give off chic grandmother vibes (versus the “it’s 1986 and I’m leaving the gym” ones that sweatsuits often do), and make you feel like you should be curled up on a white couch in front of bay windows at Grace & Frankie’s beach house. You can dress these suits up with chunky jewelry and a pair of slides, or way, way down with a blanket and some slippers. When I say you can wear them everywhere, I really do mean it…. and you can trust me on this, because I’ve personally tested the theory.
The only issue with these dreamy cashmere sweater suits is that they’re kind of a pain to take care of. Which is fair, considering these fabrics are either hand wash or dry clean only. But given how comfortable they are, I will fight to the death over the fact that they are absolutely worth the effort… especially considering I’ll surely only wash mine like, once every five wears. Keep scrolling for the top sweater suit sets to add to your cart now.
&Other Stories Ribbed Wool Stretch Soft Trousers ($89)
A lazy girl’s dream, this mix-and-match sweater and pants sitch is completely machine washable. Throw it on with a pair of combat boots, a knit beanie, and some chunky accessories and you’re good to wear it everywhere this season. Including your bed (take off the accessories first, though).
Naked Cashmere Kaia Crew Sweater ($235) and Uri Pants ($250)
At 100-percent cashmere, this set qualifies as dry clean only loungewear. But since it comes in dark colors like navy and black, you can put off that dry cleaning for weeks without anyone knowing, which feels like a win-win.
Poetry Recycled Cashmere V-Neck Sweater ($269) and Trousers ($269)
This one’s a hand-wash cashmere sweatsuit, but one you can feel really good about considering it’s made from mostly recycled fabric. Plus, the cropped pants are the perfect length—you won’t have to worry about them dragging in the snow and slush when you wear them to traipse all over town this winter.
I have been arguing that sweater suits are legit outfits for weeks now, but this look gives me even more legitimacy than the usual, “Whatever mom, they’re chic” excuse that I usually use to win the debate. I mean, it’s a sweater skirt! Can you imagine anything cuter ever?! Yes, it is cream and dry clean only, making it basically the Blair Waldorf of high maintenance outfits, but based on the number of compliments you’ll get every time you wear it I’d say it’s well worth the laundry bill.

St. Vincent teamed up with Outdoor Voices to create a line of neutral separates that you can mix and match for a paired sweatsuit.
