This Comfy Dress Trend Is the Most Underrated Basic of Summer

I've always loved wearing dresses, but I recently realized that most of my collection is for work or events and not so much for lounging at home. (Sweatpants usually serve that purpose for me.) These days, I'm working on changing my dressy-to-casual dress ratio since I'm spending so much time in my apartment. I'm still holding on to my special-occasion pieces for when wedding season eventually returns, but right now, it's all about easy, breezy dresses.

It's not hard to quickly determine what kind of dress would be comfortable for lounging at home. We're talking stretchy, loose, soft, and unfussy pieces that are easy to slip on and off. To that end, I've rounded up 27 of my favorite casual midi dresses perfect for working from home in.
