As the colder weather takes hold, make sure your loungewear collection is ready with super-soft separates to mix and match, creating endless cosy combinations. Half-zip sweaters, long-sleeve funnel-neck tops, velour hooded tops and longline sweatshirts are seasonal switch-ups that can be layered over thermal tops and T-shirts to maximise the warmth and feelgood factor of loungewear looks. Marl grey and biscuity shades go with everything and are forever chic, or choose soft pastels for a happiness boost, whether you’re hunkering down at home or braving the great outdoors.
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 is the latest sweatpant shape to add to your loungewear range. Match them with a long-sleeved top in a neutral palette for a winter co-ord that scores high on style points. For extra warmth, pop a thermal top and thermal leggings underneath. Grab a pair of sneakers, pull on a beanie, chuck on a tailored coat and you’re winter-walk ready.
Bring some big-cat energy to your down time with tactile separates in always-on-trend animal prints. Cosy long-sleeved crew-neck sweaters, funnel-neck tops and wide-leg sweatpants are stylish homebody heroes you’ll wear on repeat all winter long. Bold black and white designs and classic brown leopard prints will fit right in with your loungewear staples, mixing and matching perfectly with classic grey marl and biscuity shades. Just add fuzzy socks or cosy slipper boots.
While winter loungewear doesn’t need to do anything beyond keeping you warm and comfortable, a slogan top adds a little personality. Pared-back designs, clean colour palettes and positive words and phrases set an uplifting mood that’s perfect for the new year. Choose from a crisp white ‘simply’ slogan T-shirt, an ‘All. We. Us’ slogan baby blue T-shirt or a statement-making ‘forever’ slogan sweatshirt.
