Hill House viral nap dress is now in velvet – and we’re in love
As the temperatures continue to drop, we’re looking for anything that’s comfortable in just about any shape and shape. From fluffy cardigans and sweatshirts to Sherpa hoodies, there’s a lot we plan to get into over the next couple of seasons – and now we can add nap dresses to that list.
Hill House Home, the brand behind the original Nap dress, has just released an entire vacation collection that’s as comfortable as it is dreamy. Flowing sleeve midi dresses and buttery soft velvet are the focal points of the collection, and we’re so tempted to add every style to our baskets.
The Hill House Holiday collection is inspired by the joy and mirth that surrounds the holiday season and includes a range of pieces that can be worn both for the festivities [and] for those cozy nights at home, “Hill House Home Founder and CEO Nell Diamond told Shop TODAY in an email.” Our prints and fabrics reflect those moments. “
What is a nap dress?
Simply put: the only thing you’ll want to wear this fall, winter, spring, and summer. The nap dress trend went viral in the summer of 2020, as people ditched restrictive pants and clothing for more airy options. This is not your average muumuu – “They are a nightgown / dress hybrid; comfortable for sleeping, but can also be worn like regular clothes,” Diamond wrote in a Tweeter Last year.
At this point, we could all be tired of wearing the same pair of sweatpants while working from home, which makes a nap dress the perfect piece to achieve. For more chic occasions, the new nap dresses from Hill House Home’s vacation collection will allow you to dress effortlessly, thanks to the elegant details and velvet sequins. The hardest part may be deciding which style you want to adopt first.
Some styles, such as the Jasmine Nap dress and the Pandora tulle skirt are already out of stock, so we have a feeling this collection will sell out quickly. Below, we’ve rounded up some of the new styles that are still available, so you can be trendy late to all of your holiday celebrations this year.
Hill House Home Holiday Collection 2021
Hill House Home Ellie Nap Dress
With an A-line silhouette, smocked bodice and ruffled shoulders, the Ellie Nap dress is one of Hill House’s best-selling styles. If you want to add an extra layer during the winter months, the brand says you can easily pair it with a bodysuit.
Hill House Home The Akilah Nap Dress
A new addition to the range, this A-line style features some of the details also found on the Ellie dress. However, you can choose to move the neckline off the shoulder or off the shoulder, depending on your preference. Velvet models are almost out of stock, but you can shop for this sleek black poplin style in sizes XXS-2XL.
Hill House Home Athena Nap Dress
Many holiday-inspired prints of this babydoll dress sell out quickly, but you can opt for timeless hues like this navy poplin style to wear all year round. The contrast between the smocked bodice and puffed sleeves makes this a must-have piece.

If you prefer a longer dress, this style hits just above the ankle. It’s a simple piece, with a smocked collar and puffed sleeves, which comes in 10 different colors and patterns, including solid hues and a delicate embroidered pattern. The fabric itself is sheer, making it a great option for sleeping on hot nights.
