The end of May and beginning of June are busy times for parents. This time of year is when we juggle graduations, year-end recitals, practices, games, and school ending for the year. There’s a lot to do; finding an outfit to wear that’s both stylish and comfortable is crucial. Many of these big life events are also time-consuming and long. The last thing you want is to be wearing something uncomfortable for a 5-hour graduation. Pass! The good news? With the new HAPARI Loungewear collection, you can find dresses and one-piece options that are flattering, trendy, and most importantly—comfortable. 

Check out the post below featuring loungewear dresses to wear to graduations and events!

Why loungewear?

Loungewear is the perfect clothing category to wear to long events. Why? Because the fabrics, cuts and styles are designed with optimal comfort in mind; for example, loungewear items are often made from breathable fabrics, like light-weight cotton or linen, that are designed to help cool you down—perfect for a graduation event that’s outside in the heat. Loungewear is also designed to be transitional and centers around high-quality timeless basics. You can dress these pieces up or down to make them work for everything from an evening dinner post-beach to your daughter’s year-end dance recital. If there was ever a style perfect for busy moms and parents, this is it. 

Top five loungewear dresses for events

Now that you’re sold on why loungewear is the perfect choice for your next event, check out our top recommendations for the best versatile dresses to wear. Dress these up with a heel or a wedge sandal and add some statement jewelry, and you’ll be all set for your next event. And, most importantly—you’ll be comfortable throughout it!

1. Sunday Funday Dress in Black, Navy, or Jade

This comfortable shift-style dress is perfect for events. It’s stylish without being too tight, on-trend without being overly trendy, and comes in classic colors like black, navy, and jade to give it a more formal and elevated feel. The dress features a crew neckline, mid-length, and asymmetrical raw hem. Pair it with a chunky heeled sandal, necklace and some bracelets to dress this up and make it event-ready.

Essential Dress in Black or Birch

Next up is the Essential Dress, a gorgeous ankle-skimming dress that is double lined to give you coverage and support without clinging in an unflattering way. It has a high crew neckline and tank-style straps to complete this sleek, timeless look. Pair this with a bun or updo, some kitten-heeled sandals and a statement necklace and you’ll be ready for your next event.

The Lucia Tank Dress is one of our favorite new pieces in the 
HAPARI Loungewear collection. It features a fitted tank on top and then flows into a gorgeous a-line maxi skirt with a tie-dyed ombre design. Pais this with a chunky sandal, statement earrings, and a nice handbag and you’ll be stylish and comfortable at your next graduation.

4. Taylor Cuff-Sleeve T-Shirt Dress in Oat, Denim, or Black 

We love a good t-shirt dress—there’s nothing better in the summer! The Taylor Cuff-Sleeve T-Shirt Dress offers a full coverage look with a high scoop neckline and cuffed sleeves. It’s flowy without being too tight, giving a subtle shape. It also includes pockets! Pair this with strappy sandals and a linen blazer to dress this up and make it perfect for an event.

5. Solistice Tank Dress in Coral, Black, Mist, or Citron 

Last but not least, we love the Solistice Tank Dress! This gorgeous dress comes in coral, black, mist or citron–offering plenty of bright options if you’re looking for a pop of color. The dress has an asymmetrical hem and side ruching to create a flattering hour-glass shape. Pair this one with some flat sandals, and add a light jacket or oversized long-sleeve shirt tied at the waist to elevate this dress and make it event-ready.

HAPARI since 2004

Last but not least, we’ve added a moniker to our brand: ‘since 2004’. Our mission drives us: to create swimwear, and clothing like loungewear, that enables every woman to look and feel great. By adding this, we hope it symbolizes quality, commitment, and trust in the HAPARI brand. We’ve been supporting and creating swimwear designed for women, by women, for nearly twenty years. We aren’t one of the many low-quality, fast fashion ecommerce stores that have popped up in recent years. In fact, we consciously choose sustainable and ethical manufacturing partners guided by GOTS-certified (Global Organic Textile Standard) practices. We design with quality and longevity in mind for all of our pieces—both swimwear and clothing.

With over 20 years in the swimwear industry, we knew we could offer you—our fabulous community of women of all ages—stylish pieces to complement your swimwear that make transitioning from the beach to restaurants a breeze. That’s why we created the Loungewear Collection by HAPARI. This new collection aligns with our decades-long commitment to provide stylish swimwear and clothing for women throughout their lives. 

Don’t forget about the 20th Anniversary Warehouse Sale

While you’re shopping for new loungewear pieces, don’t forget to check out our 20th Anniversary Warehouse Sale! We’re celebrating nearly 20 years in business and couldn’t be more grateful for the HAPARI community who supports our local small business.
