The rise of the 'House Dress' - Five fab airy gúnas to nab from Irish boutiques

If 2020 has brought us one thing to celebrate... it's the increasingly blurred line between pyjamas and daywear.

We saw the sweats + jewellery trend kick off in a big way in March, and now our comfy clothing obsession has migrated towards the 'House Dress'... we're talking Kaftans, smock dresses, tunics... anything that doesn't cling. 

This is the ultimate throw-it-on item that requires zero effort. Throw it over your head and you'll look instantly put-together.

And with the oppressive humidity that's plagued us the last few weeks... the airyness of the Kaftan-style dress is so welcome.

We've picked five of our faves from Irish independent boutiques:

Pull-cord tunic dress @Muse Boutique, Waterford City
