How to Introduce Loungewear Into Your Wardrobe

As you flip through the latest fashion magazines, it’s clear that high-fashion will always have a place in what’s current and trendy, but that doesn’t mean it translates well in a typical person’s life. This is why it’s always fun when pieces that are comfortable and stylish make the pages of what’s hot and fashionable. 

Loungewear has made a fairly large impact in the fashion world over the past couple of years, not only stepping up its game in the style department but even in the technology behind the designs and fabrics used. Today, loungewear pieces are becoming more tailored, which is more flattering on the body, and they give an illusion of being much more luxurious and expensive than they often are. So, if you’re convinced that you’d like to add a few loungewear pieces into your wardrobe, here are some ways you can do just that.

Where Do You Want to Wear It?

The first step in adding loungewear into your wardrobe is to give thought as to how and where you plan on wearing it. If it’s going to be clothing you wear in your house only, then that’s very different to looking for pieces that would mesh with your work wardrobe. By making the distinction between the two, you’ll be able to narrow down the options you have to choose from.

Loungewear Is Ideal as a Layering Piece

Now, there's a good chance you don't want to do an entire wardrobe overhaul, which means you just want to introduce a few key pieces. One of the best ways to do that is to use loungewear as a layering piece. 

When it comes to women’s loungewear clothing it’s always great to have a cardigan or hoodie that you can throw on, look stylish in, feel comfortable in, and of course look put together. Take a look at some of the hoodies from such big brands as Adidas, Puma, and Nike and you’ll find that they many of them have a fitted almost tailored silhouette, they come in vibrant and fun colors, and offer such things as warmth, wind protection, and even waterproofing depending on the fabric you choose.

These styles of hoodies work well with loungewear pants, a comfy pair of jeans, skirts, and even trousers. You can style them any way you see fit. They can also be used as added warmth under a heavier jacket during the cooler months.

Familiarize Yourself with the Relaxed Trouser

Another popular option in terms of loungewear is the relaxed trouser. A relaxed trouser is a trouser that has a wide leg and typically has a drawstring and/or elastic waist. They are meant to hang/drape nicely and are available in knitted fabrics to give them that added sense of style and sophistication.

The relaxed trouser shouldn’t be confused with a jogging pant, as it has a totally different look and feel. If you’re going to pick up a pair of these, opt for a neutral soft shade that will work with a variety of solids and prints.

The Wrap – An Absolute Staple to Have

When it comes to the most popular item in the category of loungewear, the item that you absolutely must have, it is a wrap. Wraps are actually one of those pieces that can fall into so many categories because they work in all kinds of ways.

If you’re thinking of a wrap in terms of loungewear, you’d be on the hunt for one that is soft, cozy, and has plenty of movement to it. Look for something oversized in a basic solid color. By choosing a solid color you’ll be able to get more use out of it since it will work with anything in your wardrobe.

What makes wraps so incredible is their versatility. These can be used all year-round not just as a fashion statement but also to provide warmth. They can be layered over complete outfits, worn in place of a jacket, worn over a jacket for extra warmth, and even used when lounging in the house. There’s a good chance that you’ve already got one in your wardrobe not realizing this is the start to your loungewear transformation.

A Wardrobe That is Stylish and Comfortable

Introducing loungewear into your wardrobe really allows you to be stylish and trendy all while being comfortable and cozy. Depending on the pieces you pick up, they can be worn at home, while doing errands around town, and even in the office.
