The perfect pajamas should make you feel comfortable and chic, whether you're working from home or planning a cozy movie marathon. From wide-leg lounge pants to cozy flannel shirts, there are endless options to choose from. As the past month was filled with challenges and uncertainty, we, along with our friends at The Spruce, are sharing our favorite pajamas that brought us some comfort at home. Keep scrolling to see which pajama sets and leisurewear we're loving.
"I am constantly stealing my husband's t-shirts as sleep shirts because they're roomy and drape down far enough on me to feel like proper sleepwear. Fun fact: before I converted him to H&M, he spent way too much money on fancy cotton t-shirts." — Mélanie Berliet, general manager
"I love Madewell for PJs, so when they recently dropped another limited edition collection with Parachute which included a PJ set, I was all in. This shirt and shorts combo is perfect for the warmer weather and classy enough to keep on for my morning Zoom meetings." — Caroline Utz, associate editor
"An impulse buy at Target years ago! These have a luxe feel without the price tag. (I also gift these to new moms—perfect for breastfeeding and feeling like a human again.) The soft material doesn't fade and they come in pant bottoms or shorts." — Jamie Abarca, editorial project coordinator for The Spruce
"Nothing is better than a classic pair of PJs. J. Crew is my go-to for finding something comfortable but also flattering. I love this set because it is lightweight enough that I don't sweat at night, but keeps my arms covered when the temperature drops. These come in an array of colors and sizes and they can also be monogrammed for an extra preppy look." — Dwyer Frame, senior editorial director of commerce
"Flannel shirts are perfectly crafted for a good night's sleep—the material is perfect for chilly nights and just gets softer and cozier the more you wash it. While there are plenty of flannel PJs on the market, I personally love these men's shirts from Land's End, which provide a little more room in the arms and shoulders—essential for anyone who moves around a lot throughout the night." — Kate Geraghty, commerce editor
"When it comes to the perfect pajama set, I gravitate towards comfortable fabrics and versatile fits that I can wear outside of the house. That's why I'm obsessed with Lou & Grey's Signaturesoft collection. Their sweatpants look like joggers and have two generous side-pockets for stashing the essentials (I run errands in them all the time), and the sweatshirt is super warm and plush. Both are machine washable, too." — Katherine Louie, commerce editor
"I like my pajama bottoms to also be errand-appropriate, so I often go for joggers. This lightweight, sun-washed option from Aerie comes in six muted shades and it's not only buttery soft but also constructed with a side-binding detail that dresses things up just a tad." — Chelsea Stuart, senior commerce editor
"I need my pajamas to be two things: extremely soft, and presentable enough that I can walk my dogs in them at any hour without inciting judgment from my neighbors. These waffle-knit "lounge pants" fit the bill, and when I pair them with the matching pullover, there's no chance that I'm changing into anything else all day." — Karli Bendlin, email editor
"I love a good pajama set—it makes me feel so put together and almost dressed up to go to sleep, especially since my normal pajama situation is sweatpants and the baggiest shirt I can find. These have made me feel super special at night, and the soft-material helps me go right to sleep." — Kim Carvalho, associate social media editor
"I'm a recent convert to the world of matching PJ sets—after having not worn a coordinated set since I was maybe 10—and I'm not going back anytime soon. There's something decidedly luxurious about slipping into real pajamas after a long day, and I feel more put together enjoying my coffee in the morning decked out in this set before changing into "real" clothes. I love the cute cloud print on this set, and it doesn't hurt that the fabric is outrageously soft either." — Bridget Mallon, associate editorial director
"I'll never be the type of person who can commit to coordinating PJ sets—that's too much pressure for bedtime. Instead, I scout out the softest bottoms and pair them with whatever tees are too worn out to sport in public. I purchased a few bottoms from Target's Stars Above line last year and loved how well they retained their buttery soft hand-feel. This spring I purchased three more pairs in various colors—what can I say, when I love something, I commit!" — Allison Bean, editorial director
