Over the last couple of years, loungewear sets have won over denim devotees, luxury loyalists, and even the most suited and booted among us. And if you would love nothing more than to live in soft pants every day of the week, it’s worth making sure that our pursuit of comfort doesn’t hurt our planet.
Thanks to a slew of stylish and sustainable labels, your everyday loungewear needn’t make you feel guilty. From Girlfriend Collective to Pact, here are the best sustainable loungewear brands we’re wearing for winter and beyond. Think perfectly oversized crewneck hoodies, flowy wide-leg joggers, and super-soft, organic cotton separates for quiet nights in.
