What other set do you have that can be worn both as pajamas and for a night out? “The casual vibe is perfect for laid-back weekends or running errands around town,” one shopper said.

Fixmatti Shorts Set With Wave Trim


Buy on Amazon

The contrasting wavy trim is what makes this otherwise basic matching shorts set unique and fun. Reviewers love wearing the cotton set as a pool cover-up as well as a cozy lounge set. It’s plenty loose, airy, and cool for hot weather, but make sure you don’t stick it in the dryer as the fabric can shrink. The two-piece is available in white, orange, khaki, black, and blue.

Anrabess Linen Crop Top and Shorts


Buy on Amazon

The smocked crop top with romantic flutter-sleeve straps gives this set a sweet, modern look. Besides being totally adorable, it’s incredibly stretchy and unrestricting, so feel free to wear it on flights and road trips, or to drink wine and eat too much pasta. It’s made of a linen-rayon blend that keeps it breezy and bearable in the heat. The set comes in soft, pretty colors like sage green, lilac, terracotta, and sky blue.

Tankeno Textured 2-piece Shorts Set


Buy on Amazon

Though it’s branded as a lounge set, this Tankeno shorts combo is elegant enough for a prosecco brunch or vineyard visit. It comes in monochromatic tones like coffee brown, dark green, lavender, and navy, but the quilt-like texture of the fabric gives it some character. One reviewer said it’s “the perfect chameleon of your wardrobe, adapting to your every mood and activity.”

Automet Oversized Button-down Shirt and Shorts


Buy on Amazon

This flowy button-down and matching shorts set is made with a gauze-like material that’s super breezy (and thus great at hiding wrinkles). Despite how thin the fabric is, reviewers say you can’t see through it. “I am never overly impressed with Amazon buys as I’m more of a high quality gal vs. quick spin fashion,” one wrote. “However, this set is amazing, and I’m back to purchase two additional color sets.”

Prettygarden Printed Beach Set


Buy on Amazon

For fans of a bold print, this shorts set is bright and fun yet still elegant. Amazon shoppers have said it “looks like a designer outfit” and that it has a “nice bathing suit cover-up vibe.” The shorts are lined, so you can’t see through them, and they have an elastic waist with a drawstring for adjusting. Other prints include black and white brush strokes, tropical leaves, and florals.

Ekouaer Summer Tank and Shorts Set


Buy on Amazon

Many reviewers say they wear this two-piece out and about as a casual summer outfit, even though it’s marketed as a pajama set.

You can pair the top with pants for a dressier look, and nobody will even know you sometimes wear it to bed.

Wiholl 2-piece Lounge Set


Buy on Amazon

This button-down tee and drawstring shorts lounge set comes in 16 different colors and prints. It has about 2,600 ratings on Amazon, and more than 1,700 of them are five-star. Reviewers love the soft and lightweight material, ideal for comfy summer days. “It's appropriate if neighbors pop in or to run errands but comfy enough just to chillax around the house or even sleep in,” one wrote.

Taqcux Crochet Shorts Set


Buy on Amazon

Call it “grandmacore” or “the coquette aesthetic” — in any case, crochet clothes are trending. This set is simultaneously retro, loungy, and modern, thanks to drop shoulders and a polo collar. One reviewer deemed it “comfortable chic.” It’s the vacation outfit of your dreams, and its vintage-esque stripes come in eight colors.

Anrabess 2-piece Knit Sweater Set


Buy on Amazon

Much more cosmopolitan-looking than its $40 price tag suggests, this two-toned sweater set says “first-class flier.” Reviewers say it’s actually very similar to a Free People set that sells for $128. The cap-sleeve top has a mock neck and breast pocket, and the shorts feature refined pleats. Besides this khaki color, the set comes in blue, rust, army green, coffee brown, and more.

Fhniepan Printed Lounge Outfit


Buy on Amazon

Possibly the most fun set of the summer is this Fhniepan outfit adorned with folksy animals and colorful nature symbols. “This little combo is sassy and so cute,” one reviewer said. Other designs are floral- and fish-printed. The material is so lightweight and soft, some people wrote they actually thought it was silk  — and for that, $30 is a steal.

Lillusory Summer Knit Tracksuit

A breezy but moderately thick sweater set perfect for sitting around a fire on a cool summer evening, this Lillusory tracksuit features slits on the sleeves, waist hem, and shorts, plus contrasting trim for extra oomph.
