Refresh your loungewear for summer with T-shirts, leggings and hoodies in classic colours, for the ultimate timeless at-home capsule wardrobe
Tops and T-shirts
Loungewear has come a long way from novelty onesies and velour tracksuits, evolving into chic sweaters and trousers that can be worn way beyond the sofa. Choose your summer loungewear wisely and it will take you from a sunny morning walk to an evening in front of the latest Netflix must-watch, via a day of video calls and a dash to the shops. A versatile loungewear wardrobe will include a selection of super-soft T-shirts and vests, in both classic and colourful hues, that can be dressed up with a pair of statement earrings or necklace for a conference call and layered under a blazer when you’re back in the office.
Leggings and jogging bottoms
The beauty of waist-up dressing means that leggings and jogging bottoms are totally acceptable working-from-home attire, so you’re at least 50% ready to do an online workout at any time of the day and you’re never less than 100% comfortable. And with the enduring obsession with sportswear, your quarantine bottoms will have legs well after lockdown. When smarter outfits are back on the agenda, wear jogging bottoms with shirts, blazers and heels, and style leggings under your throw-on-and-go summer dresses to extend their wearability well into autumn. Until then, wear your trusty jogging bottoms with slip on/off sandals or, for the ultimate in foot comfort, a pair of slippers.
Sweaters and hoodies
For early mornings, late evenings, and summer days when the sun is nowhere to be seen, jumpers and hoodies come into their own, styled with a pair of shorts, thrown over a strappy dress or worn with a pair of jeans. Grey, navy and black sweaters are loungewear staples with longevity – they’re endlessly versatile and the perfect balance between comfy and smart – or pick one in a spirit-lifting shade for a happiness boost. A cashmere jumper is super comfy and an investment piece you’ll wear for years to come, but for the ultimate in luxe loungewear, a cashmere hoodie is a cosy layer you’ll reach for when your WFH day turns into an al fresco supper and drinks in the garden. Post lockdown, wear under a blazer or a wool coat for a sports-luxe vibe.
During lockdown, many of us have swapped underwired bras for non-wired bras, crop tops and bralettes. But, while comfort is key when it comes to living and working from home, it’s possible to tick the style box too with wire-free styles that will remain in rotation in post-lockdown life. For comfort-enhancing bras that don’t skimp on support, take a look at our bestselling Flexifit range. “The most comfortable bra I’ve ever worn”; “So supportive and comfy I forget I’m wearing it”; and “I’m never going back to an underwired bra again” are just a few of the hundreds of five-star rave reviews received from happy customers. The range also includes equally comfortable midi, high-leg and full-brief knickers.
