Don’t feel like getting out of your jammies? Don’t worry, no one does. The seemingly endless months during the pandemic gave rise to a new segment in fashion, also known as the ‘Work From Home (WFH)’ style.
Kaftans, co-ord pyjama sets, sleep shirts, and shirt dresses were the order of the day, right through 2020 and 2021. Now this year, when everyone’s going back to work, fashion-forward women are doing a little Shararat by cleverly styling the same loungewear they wore at home to look cute enough to be worn outside.
The 2022 fashion aesthetic is all about comfort chic, and it runs across all ages. Playful prints, colours, versatile round-the-clock looks, it’s all about dopamine or ‘mood’ fashion that puts you in a happy frame of mind for the day.
So, here’s your one-stop guide to getting with the trend and shopping for loungewear outfits that are honestly too pretty to just lounge around in.
Buying Guide: 5 Tips To Shop For Loungewear That Can Be Taken From Day To Night
1. Look For Happy Prints & Colours
Prints and colours are key to making a statement when you’re out and about. They reduce the need for accessories and can be paired with neutral tones to pull together a playful yet sophisticated look.
2. Opt For Breathable Fabrics
Trend-based fashion can be uncomfortable at times, compelling you to fidget with your clothes now and then. Luckily, loungewear is made from the goodness of breathable fabrics (like cotton) and comfortable relaxed fits.
3. Choose Loungewear That Vibes With Your Personal Style
Love dresses? A kaftan or shirt dress is a great option for you. More of a trousers-type person? Co-ord pyjama sets or even just loungewear bottoms with a cute crop top or shirt can feel like you. The idea is to opt for loungewear that vibes closely in fit, cut, and style with what you would wear outdoors on any given day.
4. Co-Ord Sets Are A Safe Bet
There is no easier way to get dressed and look fashion-forward than with co-ord sets. They’re all the rage and come in a variety of prints, colours, fits, and lengths. A two-piece co-ord set featuring a printed shirt and shorts is all you need for a brunch date. Accessorise with some nude heels and gold-toned jewellery and you’re good to go.
5. Mix & Match With Other Wardrobe Basics
You needn’t always wear your sleepwear and loungewear the way you had purchased it. A great way to elevate the look is to pair loungewear pieces with other wardrobe basics. For instance, mix-n-match a sleepwear shirt with fitted jeans or black palazzos; pair a formal shirt with printed loungewear shorts; add a broad waist belt to cinch the waist of your loungewear shirt dress.
