Leveling Up Your At-Home Style

Happy Thursday, ladies. At-home wear is the name of the game these days, but to be honest, dressing to just hang out around the house can get pretty boring. Many of us would like to up our game while remaining comfy so today I’m joining my friend Cindy, and several other stylish gals to share how to elevate your at-home style.

Sweater suits are everywhere these days. They’re a great option to level up your look while still remaining comfy. This sweater set is dressy enough to take you out to dinner when we’re finally out and about and perfect for staying home.

These sweater pants come in 4 colors in regular and petite. I’m wearing a small in petite and the length is perfect (I am 5’4″). They’re soft and stretchy with a wide pull-on waistband that doesn’t roll. The heavyweight knit is machine washable so it’s easy-care. The shell is in the same knit and feels nice and substantial.

Both the pants and duster have side seam pockets which I love. The long coatigan is the same knit. I am wearing a small in petite. I tried on the medium but it swam on me so I think it runs a bit large. I chose a contrasting color outer layer so the column of black could help me look taller. I also feel more put together in one color head to toe.

I couldn’t resist these calf hair leopard print sneakers. Their small wedge gives me a tiny boost but they feel totally flat. Sneakers make so much sense for at-home wear but they needn’t look like running shoes.over 50 fashion blogger jennifer connolly wearing sweater suit by Banana Republic

This sweater suit is much more casual than the other two because the shapes are more like a traditional tracksuit with jogger pants and a pull-over hoodie. I’m wearing a petite small hoodie and regular small pants…for a bit more length because when I’m wearing sweater pants, I want my ankles covered:)


They each come in several other colors. They’re super comfy to curl up with a great book or run to the supermarket and still look put together. Sneakers make so much sense these days, I see many more in my future:)

This jacket and pants are in cotton/cashmere that is amazingly soft. They also happen to be on sale! They’re a fabric blend with plenty of stretch and spandex to hold their shape. I am wearing a 0 (4-6) in the jacket but think I’d prefer the medium to make it more slouchy. white sweater set worn by jennifer of a well styled life

The pants are perfectly slouchy as they are. They come in 3 colors, but only in regular. I am wearing a 0 (4-6) which is a bit long but not by too much. Sweater suits are a fun new option that keeps you warm and comfy and is a step up from the typical tracksuit.

Have you tried any of the new sweater suits?

Now please head over and see how each of the other ladies are upping their at-home wardrobe…and let them know I sent you.

    OK Jennifer, I’ve got one for you. I am leaving February 1 from California for a year long RV trip across the country. Talk about a capsule wardrobe. What do I bring?

      How exciting. I would pack lots of neutrals, plenty of scarves to switch up your looks, and comfy bottoms for driving. Jeans can be very uncomfortable for long days on the road. Things need to be pretty sturdy to survive laundromats. Choose two neutrals to alternate and add some pops of color in accessories for variety. Have fun!!

    I got two colorful Hawaiian muumuus, and I wear them all day pretending I’m going to a luau. Cheers me up.

    Definitely trying to up my stay-at-home game in the New Year! You ladies have inspired me. I ordered those wide leg sweater pants and mock turtleneck … love the look. Happy New Year! xo

    I love the outfits but could only wear the jogger, I am allergic to all wool and cashmere. Jennifer can you tell me if you have layers in your hair I love the style and mine is as long but never lays as well as yours, thank you.

      She added a few layers, just to the top so I could get some lift. Mine is so fine it lays flat without help.

    Great outfit ideas! These look so great on you. I have bought some lounge wear for home and so enjoyed wearing these over the holidays when I really stayed home and rested. I am going into work and have a more relaxed look, but I still try to look pulled together. I must admit I am looking forward to getting “dressed” for work at some point in the future. I had to give up heels two years ago. All I have bought have been sneakers – including wedge sneakers which I love – and loafers!

      I’m really looking forward to having a reason to get dressed.

      If they have spandex in the fabric they should spring back

    I love these sweater suits! They look both comfy and polished. I’ll have to check these out… And that blue duster looks gorgeous on you!

    You look great in the duster outfit and I love the jogging ensemble. Such fresh and fun outfits for feeling good at home!

    Loved the third outfit on you. I like the style of these outfits but my frugality would not allow me to hang out in an outfit that I paid $250 for! I like the idea of doing a high/med/low price comparison. I did not like the duster as I felt it was too long.

    I wore so much leopard print as a teenager, I cringe when I see it now! 😁

    Wow we almost did identical posts. I love that duster. I purchased for my daughter for Christmas. I tried that same jogger number but I looked like a tub. You look so great in everything. I am trying to get the covid pounds off as well. Thanks for joining us!!

    The blue duster and animal print sneakers really up the look of your comfy sweater suit. They all look very comfortable. I’m not into wearing lounge suits, yoga pants or joggers. I find jeans and chinos fine. But, you do look very put together in your knit pants.

    Everything here looks comfy and yet pulled together too! Thanks!

    I really like the cashmere outfits especially the joggers — the price is another matter. Can you find this sort of outfit at a reasonable price point?
    How about 2021 articles with high / medium / low price point outfits to achieve the same look? Asking for a friend…

      They are available at all price points. I will keep my eye open for you.

    I love these comfy looks on you Jennifer! I recently purchased the same blue duster. Seeing you in the hoodie and joggers makes me want those pieces too…
