Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
Welcome back to Editor's Essentials, a Wednesday feature in which editors from around the Racked network discuss their all-time best buys.
Braless in a promotional freebie t-shirt and The Big Cotton Undies is a fine way to sleep—by yourself or with an understanding bedfellow. However, there are times where you need to look a touch more put together while lounging around the house: perhaps you're staying at your in-laws', you've rented a weekend house with friends, you're working from home and have a shred of self respect, or you know the FedEx guy is going to buzz at any minute.
For these occasions, and with the heat of the season in mind, our editors have pulled their personal favorite presentable pajamas and polished loungewear essentials for your consideration. Breezy nightgowns, cute PJ sets, and the best tee to steal from the boys are among our picks in the gallery below.
