For the majority of us, it'll come as no surprise that these days our wardrobes are made up of at least 50% of comfy loungewear. Stretchy joggers replaced our favorite pair of jeans and cozy sweatshirts and hoodies took priority over any trendy top or blouse.
But that doesn't mean that we've had to sacrifice on style. There is room in today's capsule wardrobe for stylish comfy pieces. Worn the right way, a pair of slouchy joggers, say styled with a well-cut T-shirt, blazer, and heels can look just as chic as a pair of tailored trousers.
Chic loungewear can do wonders for sartorial cravings when WFH is on the card and you're not always leaving the house. Not only does it look good on but it's the ultimate work-from-home outfit, and now that we've approached the colder months, it's perfect for keeping us warm too. And loungewear makes for one of the best cozy gifts, too.
So to help you shop, we've picked some of the comfiest loungewear pieces to get your hands on now. Enjoy!
