Loungewear isn’t a new term, but thanks to lockdowns and working from home, it’s become a fashion phenomenon and a must for every woman’s wardrobe. Traditional ladies loungewear are pieces that are comfortable, casual and perfect for wearing at home. In the modern day, loungewear is staple, stylish pieces that are not only for lounging at home but also look great when you wear them out. Think of it as pyjamas you can also wear when you go to brunch with the girls.
If the idea of wearing a tracksuit anywhere beyond your couch is slightly frightening, here’s our loungewear winter style guide. Read on to discover our top tips on where to wear loungewear and how to style it. Think about your silhouette
#1 Think About Your Silhouette
Loungewear by nature is particularly shapeless. From loose fitting joggers to oversized hoodies, it’s easy to become lost in layers of comfortable clothing when embracing this trend. Our number 1 loungewear styling tip is to always ensure you can show off your silhouette. Mix and match fitted pieces with looser ones to nail the look. Try a pair of leggings with a baggy sweatshirt or a fitted long-sleeve top with a wide-leg pant to ensure you still look stylish and feminine.
Tucking your top in at the front of joggers will also nip you in at the waist while still giving that oversized look that loungewear-lovers favour.
#2 Add a Formal Twist
Loungewear is most definitely a casual look, but if you’re going to wear it to head out for a brunch or lunch on the weekend there’s no reason you can’t dress it up in some way or another. Adding a tailored coat, denim jacket jacket or even a blazer will instantly elevate your loungewear from the traditional at-home look. This is the same when it comes to choosing what footwear to wear with loungewear. While all white trainers or coloured sneakers look great, you can dress up leggings and hoodies with a pair of leather boots in the winter.
#3 Go Matchy Matchy
Believe it or not, there is something effortlessly chic about wearing one colour head to toe – even if it’s ladies loungewear. With so many loungewear sets available this is the easiest way to embrace the trend without having to overthink about whether you look like you really just left home in your pyjamas. Wearing monochromatic loungewear whether that’s in black, navy, grey or a bold colour is a simple, yet effective way to turn a regular tracksuit into a fashion statement.
If you want to add a more fashion-edge to your loungewear set, try playing with textures such as velour or terry cloth.
#4 Keep It On Trend
Neutrals are a huge trend for AW21 and loungewear is no exception. Taupe, beige and sand colour tones will instantly transform joggers, tracksuits and knitwear into a more going-out loungewear outfit. As wearing loungewear out of the house becomes more of a fashion trend, brands and designers are creating more comfortable pieces in the season’s must-have colour palettes and silhouettes. Opting for a wide leg loungewear trouser will also instantly add style points to any look.
#5 Keep It Cosy
Loungewear as a trend is all about combining comfort and style. Whether you’re hosting a casual night in, binging Netflix on the couch or looking for a more stylish way to wear tracksuits out of the house, adding a statement pair of socks will complete your look. You can wear longer styles with your trousers tucked into them which adds an extra layer of warmth and style or try a pop of colour from an ankle sock.
Whether you’re still working from home, looking for some cosy autumn styles or wanting to try a new trend – loungewear for women is not only stylish and comfortable but fun too. Check out the loungewear collection at Luxury Legs for the latest looks from some of your favourite brands.
