Loungewear: Everything You Need To Know

October 6, 2021

Loungewear has changed the landscape of indoor and outdoor fashion. A cross between sleepwear and athleisure, loungewear is the ultimate must-have if you want sheer comfort, without sacrificing your personal style.

A casual, everyday wear, loungewear has inspired brands and fashionistas alike to revolutionize this comfy, cozy wear so that dressing up for the couch, for the bed, for a Zoom meeting— and even a quick dash to the deli— is fun.

What exactly is loungewear? Loungewear is clothing that is somewhere between pajamas and sportswear. It is comfortable, slightly loose, but cut in a way that is stylish. Basically, it’s something that you’d wear at home to get cozy, but would still look presentable in public.

Loungewear vs Sleepwear vs Activewear

Sleepwear

Sleepwear is designed to make you sleep better and is worn only inside the bedroom or in the privacy of your home. Fabric for sleepwear is usually cotton, fleece, flannel, Supima, or knit, and are usually brightly colored with fun prints. 

Activewear

Activewear is designed only for sweating it out— sports and exercise. The chief fabric for activewear is polyester (plastic cloth), so it doesn’t absorb your sweat. Plus, it’s wrinkle-free and durable.

Loungewear

Loungewear is not restricted to the bed and home, and it leans toward neutral colors. Fabric for loungewear can be cotton, wool, silk, knit, wove, flannel, or spandex. It frees you from tight-fitting or stuffy clothes, yet it looks sophisticated. While you can sleep in your loungewear, you can’t work out in them.

Loungewear: The Trend

There are various types of loungewear (we’ll get to that in a bit). And the trend is all about mixing and matching your loungewear items with just about anything your heart desires. You can wear 100% loungewear— or pair them with jeans, a coat, stilettos, or even a leather jacket. 

Washable silk dress (a type of loungewear) is one huge loungewear trend nowadays. Appropriately accessorized, this silk slip dress is being worn practically everywhere— from an office meeting to a romantic formal date.

Types of Loungewear

Here are some of the most popular loungewear clothing available everywhere. They are designed for the fashionable and discerning woman, who want comfort, style, and sophistication.

1. Washable Silk Dress

This is the comeback of the 1990s slip dress, which celebrities obsessively wore on the red carpet or when strutting down the streets of New York with a fancy cup of coffee in one hand, shades, and paparazzis surrounding them.  

Made of silk, the washable silk dress is a versatile loungewear. You can have crazy fun with it by pairing it with denim shorts or combat boots— anything that suits your fashion flair.

Our washable silk sleep dress, which comes in ruby or black, is breathable, luxurious and easily washable. It is crafted for a heavenly sleep— at the same time a hip clothing item for mixing and matching.

 2. Hoodies

The hoodie has become trendy loungewear. You can wear it to laze around the house on a Sunday, binge-watching your favorite series— or pair it with a sassy red leather skirt, or with a plaid skirt and knee-high boots, for a hot date.

Our Cosset Zip Hoodie, with its ethereally soft fabric, provides comfort at its finest. In caviar black, prosecco rose, denim blue, or oat, this two-pocket zip sweater with a hood can be worn with a blazer, skinny jeans, and heels for that client meeting— or with simple denims or shorts for a quick errand.

Our hooded poncho, on the other hand, is so soft you can fall asleep easily in it. It’s the ultimate couch wear— but also something you can wear to the mall paired with sexy leather pants and ankle boots; or skinny jeans and flip flops.

3. Jumpsuits

The loungewear jumpsuit has become a staple during our lockdown days. Now that we are gradually easing back into the outside world, we just can’t get separated from it. Who says we have to?

Jumpsuits are now a raging trend— an iconic loungewear piece that can make you look so put together. Pair it combat boots, low-heeled pumps, or a pair of Converse, it can be your outdoor wear in the chilly months of autumn.

Sure, you have to take it all off in the loo, but style and comfort trump any form of inconvenience. This cozy stay-at-home attire is now being worn for leisurely walks in the park, a short trip to the coffee shop, or for walking the dog. For a party mode, you can throw in a denim jacket and some gold hoops.

A tracksuit, which normally consists of a top and bottom, are originally made to be worn as an outer layer by athletes. Now, tracksuits have become a loungewear. 

Usually made of fleece, it is a super comfy wear that is a mainstay in women’s wardrobes. Perfect for rainy or chilly nights, or daytime wear on a lazy weekend, the tracksuit is another versatile loungewear.

Head out to the mall or to a casual day-time date by pairing your tracksuit with strappy heels or combat boots. Put on your favorite shades and carry your designer handbag, and you might be mistaken for a trendy celeb.

Both upper garments are making a trend in the loungewear era. These sleeveless, collarless tops are making their way into the streets.

Our sexy cami is lightweight and 100% luxurious silk. It is machine-washable so you can easily toss it in the washing machine without worry. 

Tank tops, on the other hand, have wider straps. Made for sleeping or lounging, you can also walk the streets with one, paired with cargo pants, or denim shorts, or even a long, flowy bohemian skirt
