Maybe it's that Carrie Bradshaw factor — how she appeared effortlessly comfy and cool all at once while folding laundry or organizing her closet. Slipping out of your daywear doesn't have to mean surrendering your style to your college sweats or your boyfriend's tee (though, admittedly, we have a soft spot for those pieces, too). Instead, we've combed the market for the most covetable loungewear, from a sweet, floral-printed romper to a pajama set that you may just want to wear outside the bedroom. Click through for 11 pieces that pull double duty as the comfiest, chicest gear to throw on at home or even style up for the street.
California-based loungewear company So Low may have started off as a lingerie line, but it's since evolved into a full-blown, casual-cool contemporary brand. Its latest offering for Holiday/Resort 2010 is a generous mix of classic staples — such as its signature fold-over yoga pant — and more novelty items, like cargo leggings, floral dresses, and swingy modal blazers. It's truly captured the essence of mixing comfy loungewear with runway trends and takes pride in encouraging women to live a healthy lifestyle without sacrificing style. With high-quality fabrics, great fit, and amazing attention to detail, So Low is quickly cornering the market on affordable fashion-meets-function basics.

I love wearing cropped pants to workout. Sometimes I get too hot in long pants and I don't like the gratuitous peep show shorts often offer. So I am always on the market for good cropped pants.
These So Low Cropped Pants ($62.00) are cute enough to wear in and out of the gym. The fold over waistband lets you make them as low or high as you want and the flared leg is flattering for most body types. They come in black, heather, charcoal and navy. I'll be investing in the charcoal and black. Buy them from Shopbop.com.
I can't help but think of the song How low can you go? How low can you go?
