I need a nap and this Aimé Leon Dore piece.

These days, I find myself most often looking for clothes that I can comfortably fall asleep in. Athleisure is touted as the trend that can “take you from the gym to the new tapas spot,” but the trend I really want to see is one that takes me straight to a nap from wherever I am.

Maybe this is because it’s beginning to get dark out before happy hour, or because a soul-crushing jack-o’-lantern with a toupee was just elected president, but lately, all I want to do is take a lot of long naps. And there’s nothing I’d rather be knocked out in until, I don’t know, 2020, than this blanket disguised as a hoodie.

It’s made by the New York-based brand Aimé Leon Dore and comes in a French terry fabric. I love the material because it’s so damn soft and fuzzy, and this bright white color will help you stand out among the sea of Vetements-like hoodies that will no doubt crop up this fall. Tuck yourself into this hoodie by heading over to ALD’s website and forking over $155 — don’t worry, our currency will probably be useless soon anyway.
