Recently, loungewear has become an absolutely huge trend on the fashion scene and is no longer restricted to only being worn inside our homes on a cosy evening or lazy Sunday. Instead, loungewear has become chic and due to some really stylish co-ord sets and individual styles being created, it’s something we are increasingly wearing out to the shops or to run errands on a weekend.
When browsing the shops online, you will now see a whole loungewear section as more and more of us look to incorporate a more relaxed vibe into our everyday wardrobes. Hayley Bieber leads the way in making casual, loungewear look good, so I feel like if we all take a leaf out of her book we’ll be fine.
I have had my eye on SO many variations across the high street and beyond, but there are particular brands that do it better than others so this week, I’ve found my current faves to share with you and they are listed by brand below.
Nasty Gal for me is the queen of high street loungewear. They have so many different sets in various colours, styles and fabrics, I guarantee you’ll add way more to your basket than the bank balance will allow. I absolutely love a loungewear co-ord because I don’t have to mess about finding items to match and you can easily throw over a blazer or quilted coat with some trainers and be instantly ready for the day.
I actually have the first set below and it’s really cosy and easy to wear. I’m partial to a cropped leg as I think it adds something extra, but with all the hype around short suits for the coming Summer season, I also think the knitted shorts co-ord set further down will sell out fast.
I like the fact that Zara has gone a bit more out there colours wise, still sticking with a muted palette but bringing in greens, blues and greys, creating a different dynamic to their loungewear collection.
A lot of the Zara pieces have cuffed trousers which I know some people aren’t too fond of, but I think a slimmer leg can be quite flattering, especially if you go over-sized on the upper half.
Finally, ASOS – and specifically ASOS design have some really lovely, well-priced loungewear pieces to bring to the table. When browsing the website, I noticed that they have a bigger mix of fabrics and rather than the majority being knitted items, they also have a good mix of super-soft jersey which is great if you get itchy when wearing a knitted jumper or jogger.
The key to making loungewear look great for everyday wear is that the outfit needs to look effortless but still put together. Make sure your items are always ironed or steamed and not just literally straight off the top of the washing pile. Try pairing them with a more tailored piece of outerwear like an oversized blazer or a structured trench coat but don’t go over the top in ‘engineering’ a look.
I’ve been saving so many loungewear street style looks on Pinterest recently, so if you fancy some inspo you can find me over here >> Pinterest
