Rest and relaxation are elevated to new levels of stylishness with this seasons focus on statement loungewear. Long weekends are an excuse for some much needed respite, and nothing feels better than kicking back in luxe loungewear.
It’s time to leave behind those teenage years of lounging around in stained once-white multi-pack tees and give yourself a style upgrade at home.
Jeans aren’t a comfortable option but you don’t need to look sloppy when chilling out. Designer branding and luxury fabrics meet sportswear-inspired styles for the comfiest luxe loungewear.
Upgrade to soft, sumptuous fabrics and keep the colour palette neutral in white, grey, black and navy. Labels to look out for include Calvin Klein, Emporio Armani, Paul Smith, Polo Ralph Lauren, Derek Rose and Bjorn Borg for impressive men’s loungewear collections.
These are the key loungewear pieces you need to impress your lady on a night of Netflix and chill.
The whiter than white t-shirt
Pick a t-shirt made from high quality fabric in a modern cut. FYI no man ever looked good in a cheap white tank top. Choose a shape that flatters your physique, opt for a long sleeved crew neck or short sleeves if you’ve been working on your biceps.
For extra loungewear style opt for a waffle-effect fabric and sportswear inspired detailing. If you’re going for baggy bottoms, a slim-fit t-shirt (tight in the right places) will add definition.
The button-down Henley t-shirt
The button down Henley is about as sophisticated as a t–shirt can get. Go for a designer branded one like this grey Calvin Klein tee in soft-touch stretch jersey.
The slouchy cardigan
A cashmere or wool mix cardigan in a longer length, slouchy style is ideal. Chunky cable knits add interest to the colder nights or go for a lightweight cotton blend cardigan in spring.
The slim-fit loungewear bottoms
Multi-functional, easy to wear pieces like these Ralph Lauren slim-fit loungewear bottoms look sharp at the gym and on the sofa.
The loungewear shorts
For something roomier on the bottom half, pyjama-style baggy trousers or relaxed lounge shorts are the way to go. Choose lightweight pure cotton lounge shorts and refined prints like these lounge shorts from Derek Rose, or for a more sporty look go for tracksuit-style shorts.
The loungewear slip-ons
Slippers aren’t only for your grandpa. Truth be told slippers slip-on style shoes are a big trend for this year. Enhance your comfort levels with some slip-on espadrilles or slip-on trainers to pad around in.
