We live in a society that’s moving non-stop. By the time you’ve finished work, the kids are home from school, and dinner is made, all you can think about is changing into joggers and a t-shirt. As tempting as this sounds, it’s not beneficial. Getting into the lazy habit of lounging about the house in ill-fitted, worn and mismatched cotton doesn’t do anything for your mood or your confidence.
Think of the lounge clothes in your closet. Do they fit you? Do the colours make you feel good, and energise you? How do these clothes make you appear to others? You may only be doing laundry and squeezing in a bit of yoga on your Sunday afternoon, but Style Doctors sticks to our motto of, “If you look good, you feel good.” And this motto should apply to all aspects of life – even if you’re just hanging around the house. So whether you’re watching the kids or staying at home with a friend, loungewear has the potential to be fashionable and chic. (And still comfortable!)
The key to mastering the loungewear look is making sure that it can be transitioned with a few pieces for wearing outside. Keep in mind the shoes and accessories you can wear with your outfit, and keep them easy to wear and neutral. Your lounging outfit will be comfy and simple, so you don’t want your accessories to be too over the top.
Your makeup should also fit this easy going theme. Think illuminators, BB and CC creams, and neutral eye shadows. There’s nothing wrong with an eyeliner or a pop of colour on your lips, as long as the look remains clean.
Fit is important, but clothes don’t have to be tight in order to fit correctly. Palazzo trousers, dungarees, t-shirt dresses, and joggers can all be flattering if the fit is correct. Like you’ve seen above, the best loungewear outfits can be transformed into easy street style looks with just a few additions – like shoes and bags.
So as long as you remember simplicity, fit, and versatility, your loungewear looks will definitely be on point.
