Stylish loungewear

I need help!
I am sick to death of wearing trackies and leggings with hoodies. I work from home so have a few super nice dresses to wear on the odd occasion I go see a customer, the rest of the time I look like im a scruffy teenager. At 31 that needs to change!
Now I know im not a 'joules' person. Trousers and shirts just arent me but I have come across the term 'Loungewear' and that seems me. The problem is, I look at ASOS (in my price range) and it's all very trendy and sporty. I found Baukjen as recommended on one of these threads and whilst I like, it's a smidge expensive to do a complete wardrobe overhaul. So with a budget of £200 what can I get that will make the biggest difference and get my some nice classic pieces that I can wear?
What can I wear on my bottom half that isn't jeans?!
Also im 4ft 11 so on the short side....

Can short people do harem pants? It wont just look like i've rolled my too long trousers up?!

Charlotte & Co have some lovely loungewear. The styling on the site leans towards frumpy but I've always been really pleased with everything I've ordered.

I work from home too, and I tend to live in two pairs of Sweaty Betty seamless ski leggings on rotation, plus regular slouchy jumpers on top (which have fallen out of "daily outdoor use" due to bobbling)

I'm only 5ft1 and love the hush amie joggers and their harem trousers They're really comfortable and even look great dressed up with heals for an evening out!
