Luxury Leisurewear Is Here To Stay
In a year spent at home for many of us, luxury leisurewear has boomed, and loungewear is here to stay. This trend has had an upgrade – slouchy sweats and onesies are out, and elevated leisurewear is in.
For most of us, working and living at home has looked very different in 2020. The emergence of leisurewear as a stand out trend during this strange and challenging year is no surprise.
Today’s loungewear goes way beyond your average pair of sweatpants. Loungewear is now a full blown fashion category, and one that can be worn more and more out of home. Get it right, and your leisurewear can add versatility to your wardrobe; mixed with good outerwear and denim, it can be worn in and outside the house.
I have curated the perfect edit of must have’s to style with your leisurewear, and compiled some top tips for how to wear them, as well as a selection of some of the best loungewear around right now. This edit will set you up for working from home, relaxing weekends, errand runs, casual lunches, and much more.
HOW TO STYLE LUX LEISURE
OUT AND ABOUT FOR THE WEEKEND
When venturing out from the comfort of your home for a meeting with a client, or catching up with family and friends for a bite to eat, the humble parka is a great choice.
In recent years, this piece of outerwear may have been hiding in the dark corners of your wardrobe, but now is the time to reintroduce it.
Be sure to choose a parka in a darker shade and a slim fit, and you will soon have a new found respect for this classic jacket.
The gilet has evolved from a 15th century peasant jacket to a 21st century staple. Over recent years, the gilet has transformed itself from a practical body warmer to something of a sartorial staple.
If the prospect of leaving the house in tracksuit still seems quite strange for you, the gilet is the smart layering choice. This will easily elevate a pair of sweat pants or a wool hoodie, and create a look that is more than acceptable to be worn outside the house.
Layered over a sweat top or a light knit, the gilet will upgrade basic staples to create a luxe leisure look, bringing structure and warmth to an outfit when you need to venture out for an afternoon stroll or spot of retail therapy.
Commonly a favourite with streetwear devotees, the denim jacket is a trusty, hardwearing and timeless piece, whatever your style preference.
With luxe leisurewear becoming such a strong feature in the menswear landscape, a good denim jacket can take you from home to a lunch date or errand run, and bridge the gap between home and outside.
Ensure the fit of the jacket allows you to layer over a piece of knitwear, sweat top, or hoody, and pair with a sweat pant, or drawstring trouser.
Layer under a coat or blazer for a contemporary substitute to the humble blazer.
