How to Stay in Your Loungewear All Day and Still Feel Chic

If all you want to do right now is roll yourself up lengthways in a duvet and just lie there in a cosy cocoon, rest assured the Who What Wear team feels the same. But getting dressed can also be important for your mood and general well-being when you're spending significant amounts of time at home, but that's not to say you have to put on anything fancy.

Far from the grotty grey trackies and old sweatshirts from the loungewear days of yore, there are now plenty of chicer items to consider. As such, we've hunted down some of the sleekest and comfiest pieces that will make you feel stylish while keeping you snug. Keep scrolling to see the women inspiring us to join the movement.

MEET THE LOUNGEWEAR EXTRAORDINAIRES

This outfit is everything we want to wear right now.

If, like Ellie, wearing heels with your loungewear makes you feel better, just do it. 

If Alexa Chung says wearing pyjamas all day is okay, who are we to argue? 

Knitted dresses make for a sleek loungewear alternative if joggers just aren't your thing. 

As do knitted-skirt co-ords. 

A mug of hot chocolate—the perfect accessory for any loungewear ensemble. 

Lesley proves you needn't stick to muted tones. Embrace bright hues, and they'll go great lengths to lift your mood. 

Playing dress-up? Just add massive gold earrings. It worked for Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, after all. 

Velvet makes for the perfect lounging thanks to its soft finish. Pair with a cashmere knit like Pernille did.

A knitted two-piece takes zero effort to style but still looks chic. 

Fancy pyjama tops also look gorgeous tucked into vintage denim.

Tuck this silky shirt into white jeans for a luxe, casual ensemble. 

Just think how luxe these will look with black strappy sandals later down the line. Or, you know, with an oversize knit in the house. 

A soft-cup bra will ease you into relaxation mode. 

Cotton dresses are just as comfortable to lounge in as joggers. 

Keep close by should the opportunity for a power nap present itself. 

These sneaks will give any look a cool, casual spin. 

It's impossible not to feel bougie in a knitted co-ord. 

After one wear, you'll never want to take these off. 

This jumpsuit will look sleek paired with Vejas and a printed tee underneath. 

We've tried lots, and this has to be one of our favourite white tees to date. 

A camel hoodie is the ultimate loungewear indulgence. 

Wrap dresses are easy to wear over jeans, with leggings, wide-leg trousers—the layering options are endless. 

Joggers are instantly elevated with the addition of a tailored leg. 

Wear this skirt with a plain tee and kicks, or a sweatshirt and slippers. 

Is there anything more blissful than a pair of cashmere bed socks? 

Are you even lounging if you're not wearing satin slip-ons?
