1. Softness Is Key
Softness is key. The most luxurious texture is cashmere, although obviously the expense and maintenance make it less practical. I still love my cashmere hoodie and jogger set, but I save it for travel mostly since it’s dry clean only (an alternative cashmere set here). It’s my go to outfit for plane trips as it looks luxe and put together, but feels like cozy pajamas. The hoodie can be left unzipped and worn with a cute graphic tee. Add your favorite sneakers or slip on flats (I like the leopard print Rothy’s) and you’re ready for the airport…have you been booking future trips like me with all these crazy deals?!
2. Find Your Fit
Loungewear doesn’t have to be frumpy. The key is to balance the fit, and pick only one oversize piece at most. If my joggers have a slouchy fit like these tie dye ones from Target, then I go for a cropped fit on top. If both pieces are baggy, the look is just too unflattering and couch potato-ish. If the sweatshirt is oversized, have the pants fit in a tapered way or go for leggings.
3. Think Three-Piece-Sets
Three-piece-sets are the up and comers. I am seeing more and more of this trend as layering finds its way into loungewear. This knit set from Sage the Label is a perfect example- knit drawstring lounge pants, a tank and a long duster style cardigan. Somehow adding the cardigan piece and tank rather than having a simple sweater makes the whole look feel more purposeful and tailored. The neutral color and the fact that the set is knit and not sweatshirt material feels extra luxe.
4. Keep it B̶a̶s̶i̶c̶ Classic
The classic hoodie and joggers in a monochromatic neutral is never going to go out of style. This blue hooded sweatshirt and joggers are ultra soft, have a medium fitted look (not too baggy), and are just easy to wear. They still look put together enough to wear out of the house but are cozy enough to wear all day and even sleep in. You can’t go wrong with the classic.
