Zara home’s secret loungewear section is just brilliant

If you're familiar with Zara shopping hacks, you'll know all about the less-visitied Zara Home loungewear section. In fact, up until yesterday, when I was researching the best pyjamas to WFH in, I had completely forgot about it. Big mistake, huge.

The selection is basically just the perfect compromise between not getting too dressed up if you can't be bothered, and looking a bit more put together than if you'd just rolled out of bed.

Much like the homeware, the clothes are pared-down and come in neutral and calming shades of beige, white, grey and black.

On the loungewear side of things, you have your knitted separates, oversized cardigans and comfy trousers, and the sleepwear area is all about crisp white linens, striped pyjamas and nighties with puff sleeves.

And if you're into slip dresses, you will adore this. There are so many options, from 40s style v-neck satin dresses with wide straps, to more minimal 90s-inspired slinky midi dresses.

Honestly, you'll want to carry on wearing these when we are eventually allowed out again. Shop my favourite pieces below.

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.
