With lockdown 2.0. underway, why not use the excuse of ‘self-care’ to treat yourself to some super soft separates? Not only does loungewear allow for an elevated look but it requires little to no imagination – making it perfect to pull together on the days where you’re not feeling your best self.
Plus, just because you’re told to stay home – doesn’t mean your style needs to be sacrifices. So, scroll own down for some cosy cashmere sets, thick jumpers to take away your winter jitters, and terrific two-pieces that’ll do the trick. Oh, and make sure to look out for the loungewear sets from local businesses, which we’ve included at the bottom.
M&S Cosy Lounge Hoodie and Wide Leg Pants
Love every second of your downtime in these knitted two-piece. The wide leg shape ensures plenty of room to lounge, and the added stretch and elasticated drawstring waistband make for a comfortable fit should you find yourself heading to the crisp cupboard for the third time a day.
Chinti & Parker Black Star Cashmere Sweater & Track Pants
We love luxury brand Chinti & Parker, who were creating luxurious loungewear sets long before lockdown. Yep, even the first one. We especially like the grown-up take on this pretty star print in 100% cashmere. It’s fun but in a neutral enough style to be able to get away with wearing outside of the house, should you pop out for your one exercise a day, or a trip to your local shops for snacks.
Mango Elastic Waist Trousers & Cotton Hoodie
If you prefer your loungewear to be lowkey, this simple hoodie and wide-leg trouser set from Mango is worth considering. Although the model is wearing her comfy slippers on set, this will also look super stylish with a simple trench coat draped on top, as well as some white trainers to tie the whole look together.
KITRI Alpaca Blend Zip Collar Sweater, Shorts & Slipper Socks
Have you ever seen a cute knitwear set? We don’t think so. Here we have KITRI’s candy coloured knitted combo, with its fifties-inspired silhouette: cue high-waisted drawstring shorts, a funnel-neck sweater and matching slipper socks.
Mango Button Knit Cardigan, Knit Jogger-Style Trousers or Skirt
Mangos’ designed a delicious oatmeal coloured three-piece set, giving two options for two very different moods. Team the longline cardigan with leggings if you want your loungewear to provide cosy coverage – or pair with the stretchy pencil skirt if you’re after something more sophisticated and sexy.
H&M Jersey Loungewear Set & Faux Fur Slippers
The cosy days are really calling with this super cute grey loungewear set from your favourite Swedish brand. Best of all this set comes with a hibernation enticing hooded top, making it the ideal sign that you’re not up for socialising… or as the perfect sunblock if you fancy a cheeky afternoon nap on the sofa. But to keep things sophisticated, you may want to pair the set with these fluffy flip flop-esque slippers – which are a homage to the high-end brand, Chloé but without the bougee price tag to match.
Zara Oversized Merino Wool & Matching Trousers
Oh, Zara you’ve done it again. This polo stop gives a simple nod to ‘workwear appropriate’ meaning you can wear on Zoom calls with your colleagues. Pair it with the matching trousers to create a chic ensemble, before making it that bit edgier with some trainers should you decide to leave your house.
Eleven Boutique - Cara & The Sky Allie Cardigan
Next, we have this fabulous cardigan full of rust, lilac and dusty pink tones that harmonise perfectly against its khaki and ecru twist backdrop. It’s made of an all-over chunky fisherman rib stitch and has added pockets too – perfect for storing any additional snacks your hands are too full to carry. This cardigan is perfect for snuggling up on the soda or to chuck on in the winter months ahead. Oh, and best of all it’s from local based business, Eleven Boutique in Cramlington, meaning you’ll be supporting a small business should you wish to purchase, too.
Eleven Boutique - Cara & The Sky Louise Pastel Striped Jumper
Here we have another piece from Eleven Boutique in Cramlington. This jumper manages to mix pretty pastel stripes with signature balloon sleeves – playing into two of season’s biggest trends. Literally. Plus, due to the nature of the knit, each garment will look slightly different making it completely unique just for you.
Luna Lark - Alpaca Blend Slipper Socks
Here’s an ode to another North East based business, Luna Lark who specialise in luxury loungewear. These gorgeous duck-egg blue socks are made from ethically sourced alpaca yarn in the UK, making them both sustainable and seemly. Plus, if you’re after a stocking filler idea for a loved one – these luxury slipper socks are definitely succumbing to, especially as every order is lovingly put together and hand-wrapped before winging its way to you.
Luna Lark - Light Grey Sweatshirt
Then last but certainly not least in this loungewear edit, we have another item from local based business, Luna Lark: a light grey sweatshirt. Perfect for sleepyhead, lovers of longlining or those who are working from home – this sweater will make feel super comfortable whether you wear it.
