Stylish loungewear to make you feel extra cosy during the holidays

  • Lockdown or no lockdown, this year has changed the way we dress and shop forever. Now loungewear is considered a staple, whether you’re lounging on the sofa watching Netflix, or running errands.

    Shopping stats back this up, with retailers such as Vestiaire and Net-A-Porter seeing an increase in sales for that category 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 dress them up with some heels and an oversized blazer, or down with your favourite trainers or track sole boots.

    For spring/summer 2020, it was all about the knitted cycling shorts paired with an oversized shirts, and the autumn trends are also leaning to the oversized.

    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.

    Zara Home has an incredible loungewear line, as do Arket and COS – look out for the latter’s amazing take on a hoodie dress.

    From hoodies to cashmere jumpers and long-sleeved t-shirts, shop my edit of the best loungewear below.
