The weather was awful again this week...another lovely storm coming to mess up our weekend plans. Well, for me it was the perfect excuse to chill out at home and do absolutely anything. Speaking of which, I usually spend my lazy weekends of self-pampering in my PJs so I thought it would be nice to do a post about loungewear and nightwear in general.
Ah, the joy of staying in!
I really feel the need to wear a super cosy attire to recharge after the workweek.
I actually care more about my PJs and loungewear than the rest of my wardrobe and I have specific clothes that I only use to clean or to cook or that I wear when I need to relax. I am constantly cold in London during the winter, so I really wanted to invest in warm and soft sweats to stay in.
Fluffy anything is my rule against the cold of winter.
My current staying in essentials
-3 pair of normal leggings (suitable for working out)
-2 thermal leggings
-4 pairs of thermal socks
-2 pairs of calf socks
-1 pair of long socks (knee length)
-1 super fluffy pyjama
-3 basic t-shirts
-2 sets of matching vest + shorts pyjamas
-2 short spaghetti strap nightdresses
-1 fluffy robe
-a pair of fluffy slippers
-a pair of sheepskin boots (like UGG)
In case I need to nip out quickly to grab some groceries, I like to have a couple of nice loungewear sets to look decent, while still being comfortable.
It is so convenient that now athleisure is so strong in fashion right now!
Below you can find one of my go-to outfits for the weekend inspired by Hailey Bieber's off duty look.
A smart coat, black sunnies, sneakers, jewellery, a chic bun hairstyle. Winning!
I love sets: I can't be bothered to look for the other perfect matching item to pair it with, I am too lazy for that.
This one by Uniqlo is super cute and it is perfect for those who despise the matchy-matchy look as the top is always a different colour from the bottom!
There are several colour combos available but this neutral set is my favourite.
It is stretchy, it washes really well and it is versatile so you can also mix it with the rest of your clothes without effort.
If you prefer to wear dresses, the sweatshirt midi dress below is ideal to wear at home: practical and comfy, it can be easily dressed up with the right accessories and be perfect to go out as well.
Add a cool pair of boots, layer a couple of necklaces, add a stylish bag and you are good to go!
Fleece is a trendy fabric this year: I personally wouldn't wear it to go out ( unless I'd live on a mountain...) but I appreciate how warm it is.
The one below is from Urban Outfitters and remembers me of the Skii look from the 90s.
Leggings: they are super comfy yet they look feminine because they are flattering and highlight your curves. You could wear them when working out at the gym or home and always feel cosy but put together.
The best value for money option is for sure from Decathlon: only 3,99£!
I have a pair in every single colour available and they are very comfortable as well as squat proof. They last ages (my first pair is from 2008) and they wash well. Pile them up, you won't regret it.
If you prefer something a little bit less sporty-looking, knitwear is the solution.
It keeps you warm and it looks super chic. Trouble is, it lasts longer if you hand wash it. Somehow, just this tiny detail takes the initial enthusiasm away from me.
Not for every day, I would say, at least not while cooking since the stains are going to be very difficult to remove on cashmere (if it happens though, use baby wipes immediately...they work miracles!). Just opt for it if you have guests and you want to look more presentable than normal.
What if you don't plan to have guests and you just don't want to leave the bed the whole day?
Sounds divine! I am literally obsessed with button-down pyjamas.
Satin, silk, cotton....it doesn't matter.
I found some lovely ones below that will combine comfort and style, even if you plan to stay under the duvet.
A bit nippy when you leave the bed to have a cuppa? Just put on a fluffy robe. It is the warm hug you need.
Need extra warmth?
Try a fluffy pyjama set: the fabric is thick and incredibly soft and the loose fit is perfect to relax!
For the minimalist lovers, a clean-cut modal nightdress would be just fine.
Vintage looking and luxury fabrics if you like to pretend of being the main character of a chic retro movie.
For a real treat, invest in a beautiful silk set. Your skin will thank you!
When love is in the air, a sexy option in the drawer is a must-have to show off:
Accessories are what makes an outfit stand out and they are crucial to be 100% comfortable when at home.
A good pair of slippers and some cute socks are as important as loungewear.
When my feet are freezing, all my body is cold and I can't relax...it is better to keep them toasty at all times!
I tend to tie my hair up when relaxing at home but tight up-do hairstyles can damage them, so maybe use something a bit more gentle such as silk or velvet scrunchies.
