The Best Loungewear Sets for Women

Travel & Leisure / Alli Waataja

A matching loungewear set is a major travel wardrobe boon: it’s a go-to for streamlined transit days, comfortable lounging, and even sleeping, with indoor-outdoor versatility. It also makes for effortless layering or mixing and matching, so you get multiple looks from pieces that claim a compact footprint in the suitcase.

Our favorite is the Travel Kit by Lunya because it’s a full matching capsule collection for effortless dressing on the road. But whether you’re looking for a head-to-toe, full-coverage ensemble or a skin-baring crop and shorts set, our list includes picks for every budget, taste, climate, and occasion.

Why We Love It: An entire capsule wardrobe of travel essentials in one package, this kit is an investment in a future of effortless packing.

What to Consider: With five pieces included, this kit comes with an investment price point. (Plus, stock tends to sell out quickly).

All bundled together in a mesh laundry bag, the bestselling kit comes with a base-layer tank, a long-sleeve crew neck shirt, leggings with pockets, socks, and even a sleep mask — all matching in versatile heather gray. The fabric is breathable and machine washable for easy wear and maintenance. We love the comfortable, elegant look of the clothing and the light-blocking, comfy qualities of the eye mask, too.

Tips for Buying the Best Loungewear Sets for Women

Know what to look for

Material: For the most comfortable loungewear, look for pieces made from soft, breathable materials such as cotton, bamboo, or modal.

Fit: Choose a relaxed fit for ease of movement and comfort. Or choose a more tailored fit for dress-up versatility.

Additional features: Check for extra features like pockets (including secure hidden pockets or zipper-protected pockets), adjustable drawstrings, and zippers.

Style: Of course, you’ll also want to choose a loungewear set based on your personal color and style preferences — as well as one that aligns with your budget. And consider your usage: an ideal loungewear set for travel is versatile and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion, mixed and matched with other wardrobe pieces for different looks, and layered for weather or formality.

Look for sets that are machine washable

You’ll also need to consider the care requirements of your loungewear set. Machine washable pieces make for the easiest maintenance. But consider the material before picking a size for loungewear you intend to wash and dry by machine: some fabrics, such as 100 percent cotton, may shrink in high heat.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • How do you dress up in loungewear?

    To make loungewear as versatile as possible for dressing up, start by investing in well-made pieces that look luxurious or otherwise polished. Beyond that, dress up loungewear by adding accessories, such as a statement necklace or a scarf. Layer clothing for visual interest: try wearing a collared shirt under a sweater or cardigan, or adding a jacket or coat over your loungewear.

    Brightly colored loungewear can make a statement, so consider boldly hued or patterned choices. And use shoes as a tool to dress up loungewear: stylish shoes, like ankle boots or sandals, can give your loungewear a more polished look. 

  • What's the difference between loungewear and PJs?

    Think of loungewear as a more general term that refers to clothing that is suitable for relaxing in, and just plain comfortable — but it’s not necessarily sleepwear. Wear loungewear for a variety of activities, including transit and sightseeing. Pajamas, on the other hand, are specifically designed for sleeping and are usually worn at night. They’re not typically worn outside (except as a statement-making sartorial choice).
