Comfy Chic: Where to Wear Loungewear
It’s common to think of loungewear as the items in your closet that you’d only take out for a Netflix night — but the truth is, there are so many occasions where trendy lounge pieces aren’t just appropriate, they’re ideal!
From a picnic in the park to a day of working from home, here’s where to wear loungewear.
While experimenting with a new recipe.
If you’re spending more time at home than usual, you might feel inspired to try some new recipes. While you’re practicing your home cooking, it’s important to dress for comfort so that you’re not distracted by a complicated outfit while you really need to focus on your pot roast! Cover up a cozy T-shirt dress with an apron to avoid any splatter stains.
In your home office.
If you work from a home office, you can typically get away with wearing more casual outfits than you would if you were commuting into an office. Dress for comfort, but be sure to pick out a nicer looking top if you’ll be hosting a presentation or joining an important video conference. The silky pajama top is a big trend and looks super sophisticated when styled with elevated accessories.
During movie night with the roomies.
A great way to spend time with your family and friends is to sit together for a fun weekday movie night. If you’ll be sitting for a few hours on the couch, the last thing you’d want to wear is a tight pair of jeans and a stiff top. Instead, style a cozy loungewear outfit, like a chunky turtleneck with leggings and a pair of cozy socks.
Practicing yoga in the living room.
You don’t need a fancy gym to get a little light activity in. Roll out a mat or towel right in the living room. Relaxed, low-impact yoga poses and gentle stretching are best done in comfortable clothing. Lounge pants and a stretchy tank top help to keep you covered without impacting your ability to loosen up your joints.
For a stay-at-home date night with your boo.
Not every date needs to involve a fancy restaurant or a dressy outfit. Sometimes it’s even better to be able to order takeout, watch your favorite shows and enjoy each other’s company in the comfort of your own home. For a cozy look that’s still put together, a striped sweater in pastel colors is an easy and adorable choice. Style it with basic black leggings and a cute pair of earrings to complete the ensemble.
To a picnic in the park with your besties.
There’s no better way to enjoy a sunny day and fresh air than a fun picnic in the park. Lounge sets in muted colors and elevated fabrics are fancy enough to leave the house, yet comfortable enough for lounging on a blanket for a few hours. Dress them up with a pair of strappy sandals if you’d like.
During a trip to run errands.
A trip to the store warrants a fashion statement, too. Even if you have to run errands, a few quick accessories will take a loungewear look to the next level. There is something so effortlessly cool about the combination of a pair of cute joggers, a moto jacket and pair of crisp, white sneakers. Put on your shiniest pair of aviator sunglasses to tie it all together.
Out for a walk around the block.
If you need to get out of the house and get moving, loungewear can pull double duty as a cute athleisure look. Put on a pair of cute joggers and a breathable tank top, lace up your walking shoes and finish the look with a monogrammed baseball cap. This sporty getup is sure to turn heads!
Dropping off treats for a favorite friend.
If you don’t plan on visiting with your friends for a long time, you don’t need to wear your fanciest look. Still, even if you’re just dropping something off, it’s also no excuse for leaving the house in your pajamas! Black, stretchy bicycle shorts look super cute with a chunky sweater and chunky sneakers. You will have the perfect old school style for a drive-by visit.
With so much versatility and cute options, the loungewear trend is officially here to stay. Whether you’re enjoying a stay-at-home date night or picnicking with friends, we hope you’ve been inspired by all of the places you can wear loungewear.
