With the Government’s new restrictions, including steering clear of the office if you can, you might be staying at home a little longer than planned. So, while it’s still nice to dress up as part of a ‘normal’ routine, there’s never been a better time to invest in the best loungewear you can find.
In fact it’s one of the top trends for autumn, with retailers such as Vestiaire and Net-A-Porter seeing an increase in sales for loungewear of up to 70%.
As the nights draw in and the weather gets colder, the mood lifting qualities of joggers or a cashmere hoodie are undeniable. One step away from being in your actual pyjamas or nightwear of choice, loungewear can be both chic and comfortable, and that right there is the key.
You can go down the premium route and invest in some lovely cashmere or knitted pieces that will last you way beyond the lockdown period. Designers and the high street are full of great layering options, whether it’s a dress over trousers or a cropped cardigan over joggers.
On the more casual side of things, cotton t-shirts, sweatshirts and tracksuit bottoms are always a good idea, and can look incredibly cool, just ask Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber. For even more LA vibes, try a tie dye style, they’re everywhere right now.
I’m also a big fan of robes, which you can just throw over anything from a slip dress to pyjamas. If you’re a bit strapped for cash, then the good news is the high street has some excellent purse-friendly options.
