All the Stylish Evidence in Favour of Sofa-Dressing

The fashion elite's newfound love for hoodies, tracksuits and sneakers looks significantly more laid-back than sport-luxe, more urbane than normcore, and it involves less flesh-flashing than athleisure—to the point where going to the gym probably doesn't look like the end goal. Basically, if it's the kind of thing you'd usually wear to grab a pint of milk on a Sunday or snuggle down to watch Game of Thrones in, it may well be suddenly on-trend.

This is the next stage in easy dressing, and stylish types across the globe are taking days where they break free from the shackles of super-stylised ensembles. Take the Kardashian, Baldwin or Jenner girls for starters. Yes, they love a body-con number as much as the next It girl, but you'll just as often see them kicking back in supersize sweatshirts or gigantic bomber jackets.

Victoria Beckham may have been lauded for the corsets featured in her recent A/W 16 show, but it was her catwalk bow in Adidas Originals Stan Smiths that really set the tone for here and now. Dad caps (that's really basic baseball caps to the uninitiated) have found their way from the streets of L.A. to the heads of the FROW. And let's not even get started on the influence of Vetements' high-fashion take on streetwear.

So scroll down and see all of the A-list proof that shows looking casual doesn't mean scrimping on the cool factor. Here's how to look comfy but never sloppy…
