Loungewear is a contentious category, where lines are frequently blurred as to what is or isn’t socially acceptable to wear outside of the house. Here, we’ve rounded up a selection of luxury loungewear appropriate for any occasion, from a graphic knitted cardigan and a sporty-chic top 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. YanYan recently released a new colourway of their bestselling Laza cardigan, featuring a print inspired by the traditional drawing of a hundred children (百子圖). For those looking for something slightly less graphic, Isabel Marant’s colour-blocked half-zip sweatshirt offers chic, laid-back edge.
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 stretchy technical top by Prada, or kill two trends with one trouser in this monogrammed silk rendition by Burberry.
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 Art Dealer’s colour-blocked trenchcoat, offering a fresh, subtle take on cheetah 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 graphic silk shirt from Burberry.
