The loungewear is nothing less than a style of clothes that are comfortable, casual and cosy, that allow us to be relaxed, and at the same time versatile in the way we present ourselves. Sure, we are not talking about underwear or sleepwear, because it allows the informality of the type of items to be established, but without excluding them from being used also outside.
The loungewear clothes we can choose today can provide us with a relaxed and comfy atmosphere as at our homes. We can use it while doing tasks such as shopping, walking our pets, or going for a healthy walk. Or even to attend a meeting or to teach. And as these are not pyjamas, but versatile clothing, whoever is on the other side of the camera, won’t get surprised by our casual and comfortable look. Excluding formal situations, such as an interview or an important meeting with more conventional clients, predictably, people coming across our sight are also adopting the same concept.
Now, our life can become much simpler and more practical with this type of clothing. Undoubtedly, the pieces to choose may vary according to our style and body shape, but as the comfort is one essential thing, what will be better, will be above all, allowing us to feel safe, confident, and so well, that no other question will arise.
To fully embrace this trend in 2021, we must consider tops and bottoms, colours and textures, combinations, and comfortable shapes. One trend is precisely the combination in tone or texture. The feeling of using a block that interconnects with its texture projects the comfort it gives to the look. The color block can extend a smoother, more neutral tone. On a visit to the mall, a more exuberant color that we chose for the suitcase or the accessories or just using a more elaborated pump can result extraordinary and fashionable.
As textures define much of comfort, cottons (organic) and wools (cruelty-free) or natural materials, such as linen, are trends to be used, adapting both as needed, to the colder or warmer season.
Single pieces, like tunics, dresses, or jumpsuits, will also be on the rise, especially for its functionality. With, just one piece and the look is complete. Super easy, this is a feature for loungewear, it is a practical way to use. In addition, it allows adapting depending on whether the days are hotter or colder because it naturally adds layers. A piece that we have seen being used a lot in the last months are the cardigans, combined with the tops and with pants or a skirt, in a complete set of mesh, they are killing.
Of note are the tops, short or long, the short ones sometimes very short and the long ones often quite long. Of the most indispensable, will be the basics that we wear with almost everything. Prefer tighter tops and blouses or skin bodies. These choices can be used from the high neck to the straps, depending on the intended function. I would say that these solutions, being the basics, are also the ones that we can take advantage of, beyond loungewear.
Bottom parts, with regular shape, long, loose and wide, or adjustable elastic waist, is one most recommended trends. In textures, prefer the most versatile. They can be silks (challenging to find sustainable ones, but we keep trying) and viscose or similar fabrics (preferably those from recycled material), and even cotton. Prefer fabrics from natural or recycled sources. And the knits that they do so well, besides loungewear, are an excellent investment for those who need to buy. I expect it is also possible to get some pieces from the closet that we, have not remembered before, but combined with a more elaborate element, it will give an original and functional loungewear look.
Good news for those who usually look for these pieces, and do not know where to find them, is that there are several brands with sustainable offers that already create their private loungewear collection. Helps and does good to the planet! That’s why I love being here to bring you these ideas my ambition is to help you find the best solutions.
Now, just start combining these ideas. Stay safe!
A big hug.
