You’re looking at the three things I need for a cozy night in watching a movie: 1) a comfy T-shirt dress with pockets; 2) a pair of sweater leggings; and 3) a classy carrier to shlep a bottle of red in from the wine store to my apartment, where “The Notebook” awaits. Best of all, these three pieces are all available at Wolf & Harrison, which is taking 25 percent off everything – including flasks, skirts, and soft knits for men and women — in their online store (code: XMAS2011). Score! [$29.99-$39.99, Wolf & Harrison]
We sometimes think that the sexiest thing you can wear to bed isn’t the see-through nightie or the fancy lingerie, but rather the laid-back, basic stuff. Like these Only Hearts boxer shorts. They’re natural, comfy, and would, without a doubt, make us feel sexy. Who’s with us?
The problem with the overpriced sweatpants trend is that, well, you look like you’re wearing … sweatpants. Sweatpants you spent half your rent on. (Cue slow clap.) A genius solution? J.Crew’s affordable, luxe terry “un-sweatpant,” which manages to look just a bit more put-together thanks to a chic slim fit and ankle zips, allowing you to walk out of the house with no (or at least less) shame. Of course, they’re ultra comfy, so you’re welcome to lounge around in them as well.
The white linen curtain flaps as a warm spring breeze makes its way into the bedroom, caressing your face. You wake to hear the birds chirping and see the leaves on the trees blowing gently in the soft wind. The feeling of happiness engulfs you while laying there staring out at nature. You’re up to start the day but you wouldn’t mind lounging in your sleepwear. OK, this probably isn’t your reality, but at least you can pretend in this cotton eyelet-trim chemise. It has adjustable straps for a perfect fit and has a mid-thigh length to make you look and feel adorably girly.

Sometimes the sexiest bedroom fashions are the ones that do a better job of covering up than they do revealing. (Plus, most of the time those over-the-top doo-dads are just plain uncomfortable.) Here’s something that’s both cozy and subtly seductive. Jenna Leigh’s jersey kimono robe features a low-cut neckline and super short hem but brings elegance with its draped sleeves and non-traditional peacock color. Of course, half the fun of this style is unwrapping it to reveal what’s underneath. Which, if he’s lucky, might just be nothing. [$96, Jenna Leigh Lingerie]

UPDATE! The winner of the Jenna Leigh robe is ootie for this comment:
I have one perfume that I basically only wear for special (sexual) occasions. Now, whenever I put it on, my boyfriend gets instantly horny. I don’t think he’s put it together and realized that I put on a different perfume…the smell now just makes him think of sex.
Thank you for all your comments! (Just reading them sort of got us in the mood.) Keep reading »
You know we’re big fans of jumpsuits here at The Frisky, but even we’ll admit that wearing one in public can be hazardous, especially when you have to tinkle. So for now we’re wearing our one-pieces at home, where we can be cute and cozy at the same time. And don’t have to worry about any unfortunate bathroom mishaps. [$38, Urban Outfitters] Keep reading »
We love shopping for “lounge clothes” — you know, the duds you throw on the second you walk in your pad after a long day at work. Lounge clothes are different than pajamas because, in theory, you could go outside in them and not look like you just busted out of a mental institution. These Gap leggings technically can be paired under dresses or long tunics, but because of the purple stripes (which are likely to clash with, um, a lot), we think they’re a little more appropriate for lounging comfortably (they’re mega cozy) on your couch while watching a “Real Housewives” marathon. But if you happen to trot outside to grab a beverage, no one will glance twice. [$11.99, Gap] Keep reading »
There’s a reason your mom put you in those itchy footsie pajamas when you were a child…warmth. Now that you’re an adult you can still have shoulder to toe warmth without having a major case of the itchies. In fact, you’ll be quite cozy in this union suit made from 100 percent soft cotton. And it has a rather convenient drop seat that can be monogrammed. We’ll wear ours while drinking warm apple cider and watching holiday movies. [from $59.95, Pajamagram] Keep reading »
I’m really into sleepwear and loungewear lately. I’m not sure why, but it probably has something to do with the fact that I’ve been sleeping in a tank top and boxer shorts for the last 10 years. Now I feel the need to grow up and this slip from Urban Outfitters is perfectly adult, yet whimsical. I love the tuxedo aspect and the tri-color keeps it fun. I’m not sure the underwire would be comfy to sleep in, but the slip would be really sexy to lounge around in, especially if you own a classic pair of marabou slippers.

And we’re pretty sure you won’t be ashamed when you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror. Keep reading »
