Perfect for cosy days at home, the best loungewear is something you'll never regret buying particularly during these cold, gloomy days we've been faced with lately.

Whilst national lockdowns are well and truly in the past, our love of loungewear stays strong, with sales of the cosy sets going through the roof at the likes of Net-A-Porter, Matches Fashion and Zara.

At home, loungewear is great paired with fluffy slippers, and for socialising, you can easily dress up your joggers and loungewear sets with a tailored camel coat and chunky ankle boots.

This season, there's plenty of choice, whether you're after mood-lifting colourful joggers, luxurious cashmere hoodies or impossibly soft cotton and wool sets.

You'll be wearing your loungewear a lot, so do choose wisely. If money is no object, I recommend a lovely cashmere or knitted piece that will last you way beyond this winter.

On the more casual side of things, good quality cotton t-shirts, sweatshirts and tracksuit bottoms are always a good idea, and can look incredibly cool, just ask the LA set including Emily Ratajkowski, Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber. They're a great travel companion too, for those lucky enough to be going on a skiing holiday. Once you've tasted that comfort, you'll never be able to go back.

For staying at home, I'm also a big fan of robes, which you can just throw over anything from a knitted dress to your favourite pyjamas. The good news is the high street has some excellent purse-friendly options.

From lounge sets to cashmere jumpers and wide-leg soft trousers, keep scrolling to shop the best loungewear available as recommended by our editors.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
