Don't get me wrong, they're comfy, but sometimes I crave a touch of sophistication without sacrificing an ounce of comfort. Since the pandemic its popularity has grown to cult-dress status. That's where the house dress struts in, stealing hearts and claiming prime real estate in closets everywhere.

Now, you might be wondering, "What is a house or lounge dress, anyway?" Well, picture this: a garment that effortlessly combines the comfort of loungewear with the grace and style of a dress. It's like a match made in sartorial heaven! The house dress is all about embracing that laid-back, carefree vibe while still looking fabulous. Think loose silhouettes, soft fabrics that move with your body, and cute details that add a touch of whimsy. It's the perfect ensemble for those days when you want to feel relaxed, yet comfy. So, whether you're planning a cozy day indoors, or stepping out for a fun adventure, the house dress is your go-to companion for all things chic and cozy. So let’s take a deep dive and review Grae Cove’s delightful lounge dress collection.

Cozy Comfort

Crafted from lightweight linen materials, our lounge dresses take comfort to a whole new level. Linen is known for its breathability (check out our article about the 7 Reasons We Love Linen). Linen is known for its breathability, making it a dream to wear. The flowy fabric feels cool to the touch and absorbs moisture, perfect for tackling your to-do list or lounging by the pool on a scorching summer's day. And let's not forget about those loose silhouettes that give you maximum room to move and groove. Take our prairie-style linen dress, Paige, for example. It features a smocked waist detail that's both figure-flattering and oh-so-comfortable. We adore the off-the-shoulder design, but did you know that you can also pull the elastic neckline over your shoulders for added flexibility and versatility? Whether you're indulging in some well-deserved couch cuddles, conquering your to-do list, or enjoying some well-deserved rest and relaxation, the Paige lounge dress has got your back (quite literally!).

Effortless and Chic

Oh, the house dress, it's more than just comfort, my friends. It's a style statement in itself! This marvelous creation effortlessly blends comfort and fashion, giving you the best of both worlds. Grae Cove’s swingy Sydney is styled like a sundress and it’s our choice with its classic silhouette and flattering round neckline. Just add a sweet statement bow to the stretchy waistline and go.

Home-to-Life Versatility

One of the greatest advantages of owning a lounge dress is its incredible versatility. Take our easy-breezy Isla, for example. With its slim, shift silhouette, it seamlessly transitions from home to life with ease. Keep it lowkey at home, and when you're ready to step out for a coffee or brunch date, pair it with some adorable espadrilles or cute open-toe sandals. This lounge dress is a valuable addition to your wardrobe, ensuring you're always prepared for any occasion that may come your way.

Timeless Appeal

In a world of ever-changing fashion trends, the lounge dress stands out with its timeless appeal. The Georgina, linen dress, is a classic garment that transcends fleeting fads, ensuring that it remains a relevant and stylish choice year after year. The simple flared skirt, useful pockets, relaxed fit and floaty linen fabric is our reliable go-to option that never goes out of style. Wear with white sneakers now for errands and school drop-offs and an oversized cardigan with booties in the fall. We love that the Georgina effortlessly adapts to different weather conditions with the addition of layers or accessories.
