Activewear and loungewear have become a valuable part of our capsule wardrobes, and we don’t think we’ll ever be ready to let them go. Of course, these clothes are useful for working out, and nothing provides more motivation than a fresh matching set. But they’re also so useful for those days when you just need to crack on with working from home or run errands, and comfort must come first. And no matter how much we missed getting dressed up when we were spending all our time at home, it’s never not going to feel good to change into our favourite cosy outfits when we walk through the door, especially on those dark winter nights.
Prioritising comfort doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style, though. This is why it pays to have brands like Gilly Hicks on your radar. You might know it as a subsidiary of the much-loved Hollister brand, but Gilly Hicks focuses solely on high-quality underwear, activewear and loungewear and has become our under-the-radar favourite for casual, comfy options. We’re talking co-ords (always our go-to trick for feeling put-together, even in loungewear) in minimalist neutrals and muted shades with mix-and-match options across the brand’s Gilly Go and Recharge activewear lines. And everything is made of durable, long-lasting fabrics that will see you through seasons to come.
The collection isn’t short on perfect leggings, but as you’ll see, there are also some more stylish shapes to try, like flared pants, long-sleeve tops (great for exercising in winter) and knitted wide-leg trousers—styles that you don’t necessarily see everywhere else. We can seriously recommend them for freshening up your current collection while feeling good about your outfits.
To make it easy for you, we’ve already pulled together a tight edit of our favourite Gilly Hicks combos below. Just keep scrolling, and you’ll find 10 perfect, easy-to-wear outfits that (let’s be real) you’ll probably wear more than anything else this winter.
