I think the best thing we can take from the past year is the fact that we have made loungewear chic. There’s no better feeling than putting on your comfiest lounge set and popping on a Zoom call – all while looking presentable. With that being said, I have certainly accumulated a large collection of lounge sets, (may or may not be wearing one at this current moment), but no shame here. These pieces make me want to be seen in my PJs, and you’ll feel the same with these in your wardrobe. I’ve gathered a few MODISTE favorites that will jumpstart your loungewear collection off perfectly.
Mr. Mittens has got to be one of my favorite designers for anything rich and cozy. They just do it right. The Lace Polo with the Lace Shorts or the Cable Trousers are the epitome of loungewear. The thick wool just begs you to put them on after a long day. Grab a cup of tea and lounge in your matching set while watching the next episode of High Castle (everyone at MODISTE is obsessed with this show).
Warmer months call for shorter hem lines and a little more skin. Keep your loungewear seasonal with the Nastya Knit Mini Shorts. These adorable bloomers will be the star in your next IG post. Pair them with the ultra-chic Marta Cardigan for your next coordinated set.
We all love a classic loungewear staple – the sweatsuit. With so many different styles, prints and patterns being released, it’s hard to choose a favorite. My most-worn you ask? The Acid Wash Charcoal Pullover and the matching Charcoal Sweatpant. The minimal coloring mixed with the stand-out acid wash really hits home for me. Wear together or separate for multiple outfit options. La Detresse pieces come with that soft, vintage, worn feel while being brand new and just for you.
