Warmer weather is on the way, but as we all know, but as we all know, summer doesn’t automatically mean ditching the layers – the answer is super-soft separates that allow endless cosy combinations. Half-zip sweatshirts, regular sweatshirts and soft hoodies can be layered over camisoles and T-shirts to maximise warmth when needed. Grey marl and biscuity shades go with everything and are forever chic, or choose soft pastels for a happiness boost.
If you’re looking to elevate your loungewear for spring/summer, then you can’t go wrong with a chic, matching set. We’d be very happy to leave the house in this sophisticated grey cardigan with coordinating cropped sweatpants, which plays into the trend for elegant knit sets seen at Proenza Schouler and Nanushka. Then again, we’d be very happy to curl up on the sofa with coffee and a book in this co-ord too.
Sweatpants are hard to beat when it comes to lounging, but new shapes, colourways and styling ideas have given our off-duty favourites a chic-over to take them way beyond the sofa. While cuffed sweatpants are still going strong, wide-leg sweatpants are the latest shape to add to your loungewear wardrobe. As the weather warms up, you can swap your cosy sweatpants for soft, cotton-blend shorts – complete with prerequisite stretchy waistband, of course!
