Over the last century, there have been various manifestations of loungewear—from the elegant peignoirs of the early 20th century to the silken co-ords of the '70s to the '90s penchant for underwear as outerwear. Fast forward to the modern-day, and we've seen an altogether more elevated approach to loungewear come to the fore.
The moment I saw that cooler-than-thou womenswear brand Joseph were stocking tracksuit bottoms and souped-up sports hoodies, I knew something was shifting. I wouldn't usually consider myself a lover of sporty styles, but there was something so undeniably chic about these camel-coloured (and ultra-comfy) pieces.
My suspicions were confirmed when I turned to Instagram and saw the latest outfit shots from our fave influencers, who were working from home and clad in knitted trousers, chic jogging bottoms, cosy co-ords and cashmere hoodies. They might not be your usual fashion-girl getups, but in our opinion, they look just as good as their usual extroverted ensembles. Scroll down for our favourite loungewear looks.
White Jeans + Colourful Knit
Style Notes: Sometimes you can't go wrong with the classics, and in this case it's white jeans and a feel-good colourful knit.
Style Notes: Everyone is obsessed with knitted co-ords right now (perhaps because they are the ultimate cosy yet pulled-together pairing). Make like Monikh and wear yours with minimal adornments: gold hoops or a pendant necklace will do.
Style Notes:Stacey Dooley has got to be one of our loungewear muses, as she has refined the art of pairing laid-back staples with polished separates. Just look at the way that she's paired these high-tech trackies with a camel knit and gold jewellery.
Style Notes: There's nothing we don't love about this Rosie Huntington-Whiteley ensemble. The key to its success lies in the textural contrast between the fine-knit jumper and silken trousers. The fabric combination makes it look so stylish.
