If all you want to do right now is roll yourself up lengthways in a duvet and just lay there in a cosy cocoon, rest assured the Who What Wear team feels the same. Right now, getting dressed in jeans and a roll-neck seems like a monumental chore, let alone having to consider a dress or skirt when the next social engagement you wish you'd said no to (how rude that people insist on having birthdays in January) rolls around. However, we're taking comfort in the fact that celebrities are also finding it hard to get back into the sartorial swing of things, with many of them still wearing their loungewear without a care. And you know what? We're going to join them.
Loungewear, or comfortwear as it's now being called in some circles, is no longer the mainstay of the bedroom—it has moved on to become very much a part of our outside-the-house ensembles. Case in point: Alexa Chung, who wore actual pyjamas to the airport, further cementing our love for her. We don't know what happened to her shoes, but more power to her. Far from the grotty grey trackies and old sweatshirts from the loungewear days of yore, there are now plenty of chicer items to consider. We've hunted down some of the coolest and comfiest pieces that can be worn inside the house next to a fire and also for any occasion that crops up in your diary.
