During the current climate, many of us have been reaching for the slippers rather than the stilettos and a comfy hoodie instead of restrictive suits or more formal attire.
Virtual meetings have most scrambling to find that formal shirt at the back of the closet whilst the bottom half of the body remains in pyjamas and lectures have turned into virtual slumber parties.
Loungewear, by definition, is comfortable and casual clothing suitable for wearing at home. It’s a level above pyjamas and is considered acceptable to wear to the store to buy milk and bread. But brands have started to release loungewear collections that are both comfortable and incredibly stylish.
Typically monochromatic and simplistic in design, loungewear traditionally consists of a sweatshirt with a hood or no-hood, and a pair of joggers to match. Choose either a fitted design or more of the oversized look which is bang on-trend.
For the uber-chic loungewear is usually patterned or has a well-known logo on the front or back. This type of loungewear has become more popular recently as the 90’s trend of oversized tracksuits has come back into style thanks to celebrities such as Billie Eilish and Hailey Bieber.
But what if you found loungewear that you didn’t need to cover up when the delivery man calls for the third time that morning or loungewear that is the perfect combination of comfortable and professional that would be the ultimate in loungewear don’t you think?
