If the above scenario is on your radar this weekend then you’ll know that great lounge wear is a must. When it comes to clothes just made for relaxing, comfort is most definitely key but that doesn’t mean you can’t add some stylish touches here and there. There are so many gorgeous, comfortable pieces around now that you’ll most definitely find something that’s made for lazy days in bed, enjoying coffee — but is polished enough that you won’t hesitate to wear them out the door when you need to. If you’re in the market for great lounge wear, then here’s how to do it without spending a fortune.
Check out the chain stores
There are some brands that do luxe lounge wear but it also comes with the price tag to match. So make a beeline for your favourite chain store instead. Brands like Seed and Cotton On do great jogger pants with matching lightweight tops, comfy tees, and cute pyjamas that are just made for relaxing on the couch but don’t require a significant investment.
ASOS has a great range of lounge wear, the same with The Iconic and brands such as Marks and Spencer and Zara. You’ll find pieces at a reasonable price that are often discounted if you keep your eyes peeled for discounts. High end online retailers also offer gorgeous pieces that are made from beautiful fabrics such as cashmere, and if you wait at just the right time when they’re doing their big sales such as after Christmas or during Black Friday, you’re guaranteed to find something you’ll want to live in every weekend.
Raid the kids’ section
If you’re on the petite side it’s worth paying a visit to the kids’ or teens section of certain brands. They sell lounge wear basics such as t-shirts, pyjamas, comfy jogger pants and shorts and other comfy separates but at a fraction of the price of the adult range. If you look for the bigger sizes, you’ll find that they can easily fit grown ups too!
Visit the men’s department
The great thing about lounge wear is that it looks better when it’s slightly oversized and has a relaxed fit. Remember the aim is to be comfy so anything too tight or small won’t fit the bill. That’s why you should definitely swing by the men’s department. When it comes to finding separates you’ll often find that the men’s ranges whether it be tees or hoodies are great for meeting your lounge wear needs. As an added bonus you’ll find that the small sizes in the men’s range are often left behind and reduced at sale time making them ripe for the picking when you’re trying to stock up!
