Here, we’ve rounded up a selection of  luxury loungewear appropriate for any occasion, from a graphic turtleneck and zebra-print pants for the daytime, to a silk slip dress to take on the night.

Bold designs spruce up and revitalise lounge-y knit pieces, allowing a cosy sweater to double as an edgy, eye-catching statement piece. Art aficionados may be partial to the Valentino knit, featuring a print of a 19th-century neoclassical sculpture of kissing lovers. For those looking for something slightly more conservative, Snow Xue Gao’s turtleneck features a pine tree set against a striking red background with a colour-blocked sleeve.

Athleisure: the trend that everybody loves to hate. And yet, it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon- and for good reason. As sportswear-inspired pieces crop up in fashion houses from Gucci and Prada to Valentino and Isabel Marant, this trend has surpassed all expectations in the way that it continues to expand with notable acceleration. Be comfortable yet chic in a reimagined patchwork tracksuit from Adidas Originals by Daniëlle Cathari, or kill two trends with one top in a logo adorned jersey by Off-White.

A long-time wardrobe staple, animal print has returned this season in its full tiger-striped, cheetah-spotted, snake-skinned glory. Try incorporating some of these bold offerings into your wardrobe, featuring an array of unique textures and bright colours. If you’re not quite ready to commit to this perennial trend, try Phillip Lim’s understated turtleneck sweater, as he offers a fresh, subtle take on zebra print. Alternatively, take the bold print next level with a neon yellow rendition by Gucci.

Gauzy silks drape beautifully across the body, allowing for a figure flattering fit without feeling uncomfortably suffocated. Slinky slip dresses or silky camisoles are the perfect loungewear addition to your wardrobe, easily dressed up with heels and a bright lip, or worn casually with sneakers and a distressed denim jacket. Go bold in a sultry adjustable slip from Orseund Iris, or opt for a more casual look with a monogrammed pyjama shirt number from Burberry.
