AD – This post on how to define success on your own terms is a paid advertorial with Femme Luxe but all thoughts are my own
I think it’s probably safe to assume that our loungewear collections have grown considerably since a year and a half ago. With working from home becoming the new norm and more nights in that we care to remember, I’m sure I speak for a lot of you when I say I sure as heck haven’t been sitting around in my jeans and Tommy blazer all year!
And although of course the main function of loungewear is comfort, that’s not to say that we can’t continue styling our new collection of loungewear whilst out and about going forward. And styling them in such a way that they look chic and stylish, as well as comfortable. The ultimate effortless look.
And even if your loungewear remains in the comfort of your own home, that doesn’t mean we can’t style it up there either. I don’t know about anyone else but I really did get a bit sick of looking like I hadn’t make an effort after about 6 weeks of lockdown!
So, grab all your loungewear and follow these super simple tips and hacks to help you style it!
Rock loungewear with confidence
Anything can look amazing when you wear it with confidence. Loungewear is designed for comfort, so it’s natural that a lot of people probably won’t feel their 100% most confident in it, in comparison to a dress or tailored suit. But loungewear can look and feel great if you style it up in the right way!
My first and favourite piece I chose from Femme Luxe was this Lilac Cropped Top & High Waisted Joggers Loungewear Set and the reason I added this under the point about confidence is because I felt so good in this set and it really changed the way I poses and reacted to having my photos taken. These are some of my favourite pictures I’ve ever had taken for my blog!
I love how this set cinches in at the waist to allow for a more hour-glass figure – which isn’t usually that prominent when you’re wearing looser fitting loungewear. The colour is super cute as well and it’s such a soft and comfortable set – absolutely PERFECT for the upcoming colder months!
Think about the fit of the item
Typically, your loungewear will be a looser fit than other items of clothing (apart from leggings) so the way you wear the fit and shape of your loungewear can completely change it’s look. You might want to pair a looser item with something more fitted or turn up the sleeves of your loungewear tops, to give length to the arms (and show off some jewellery – onto that shortly!)
Don’t be afraid to pair with a heel
If you’re going out and about and want to pair comfort with style, then loungewear can 100% be used for that. You might think about pairing some smarter loungewear pants with a heel, a basic T and a blazer for a super chic and effortless look which will also be mega comortable throughout your day!
The first piece I picked up from Femme Luxe for this post were these Sage High Waisted Seam Cuffed Joggers. You’ll definitely get me swapping things like black dresses and denim shorts for these in the Autumn and Winter months! These joggers are great because they’re not too baggy and can still look quite figure hugging, as well as being super soft and comfortable.
I’ve paired them up with a simply pair of black heels, a sage back and a black blazer here which makes loungewear look a lot smarter and more chic! I think sage is a great colour too – sage can look great in anything!
Jewellery is your ultimate friend
Jewellery can seriously transform an outfit and you certainly don’t need to be going out anywhere fancy to style your nicest pieces of jewellery. Pair your loungewear with some cute earrings, layered necklaces, bracelets and some rings (if you wear them) and your lazy Sunday loungewear outfit has a whole new meaning!
My next choice from Femme Luxe was the Pink Off-Shoulder Loungewear Set which I think paired absolutely perfectly with this chunky gold jewellery. Paired in this way, the top half of this set could 100% be worn out and about and seriously styled up for a more stylish look! The bottoms were a little too tight for me but could definitely be paired with some boots and a long coat for Winter!
Accessorize to the max
Combining the above point together here just to emphasis how important accessories can be when it comes to styling outfits. The simplest garment can be utterly transformed with jewellery, sunglasses or handbags and if you’re looking to style up your loungewear, then this is without a doubt the easiest way to do that!
Think about layering
Layering is a great way to dress up your loungewear, especially in the Autumn or Winter months when we’re typically wearing more clothes and layers than normal. Throwing a blazer over the top, a stylish scarf or beautifully tailored coat with really transform your loungewear into a super cute and cozy outfit for those chilly nights.
