The house dress is having a 2020 renaissance. "I think #stayathome made people realize that we need to not just dress to go outside — we need to dress to be inside, love what we wear and feel comfortable," designer Malgosia Archer says.

For Lynette Gabriel, it started with a dressed-up Zoom brunch with girlfriends. She called in from her home in Oakland, Calif., in a leopard-print long-sleeve gown from the back of her closet. Snacking on smoked-salmon potato hash and sipping on a glass of rosé, Gabriel found her new house fashion.

"We actually now call ourselves 'The Real Housewives of Quarantine' in our house dresses," Gabriel says and chuckles.
