Now more than ever, both because of living at home during quarantine and because it’s trendy, people are wearing loungewear for daily life. No longer just for sleeping or Netflix binging, there are tons of chic loungewear options that elevate comfortable clothes to make a fashion statement. There’s a way to wear loungewear without looking lazy, you just have to get the right pieces and know how to style them. Grab your favorite tanks, tees, sweats, and joggers because we are digging into the best tips for wearing loungewear!

How to Wear Leggings

Truly a favorite in many closets, leggings are a go-to for all sorts of casual occasions. From your at-home yoga class to running errands, a pair of black leggings are a stretchy base that looks good on everybody. As they are inherently tight, there’s nothing sloppy about a pair of leggings, but that doesn’t mean they don’t need a little styling. 

When wearing leggings, it’s important to find a balance in your look with different silhouettes. Unless you are doing a workout class, you will likely want a little more coverage of the bum while wearing leggings. To feel less exposed, you should avoid short shirts that hit above the waist. Instead, either wear a longer-length shirt or tie a flannel around your waist for a retro athleisure look. You can also dress your leggings up with boots or heels and a faux leather jacket.

How to Wear a Jogger Set

A jogger set with athletic pants and a t-shirt or sweatshirt is actually very cute when styled correctly. If you want to embrace an athletic style, keep it simple with a nice crossbody bag or fanny pack, fresh white sneakers, and minimal gold jewelry. If you want to dress up the set, add a black or tan blazer and wear black boots and sunglasses. 

How to Wear PJs

It is not that easy to get away with wearing your PJs as a daytime look, but it is possible. Matching satin PJ sets have actually been trendy the last few years among the fashion crowd. If you want to be slightly less conspicuous, you can definitely get away with wearing a satin PJ top with jeans and heels. However, if you are trying to wear your PJs for a work video call, you might want to reconsider...it’s definitely a risky move.

Pieces to Keep On Hand

 Baseball Cap: Somedays, you just don’t want to bother with doing your hair. Cue, the classic baseball cap. It looks stylish with a ponytail and allows you to feel a little incognito.

• Overcoat: If seasonally appropriate, you can always throw a classic overcoat over your loungewear. This way, you can keep it on if you feel underdressed in your loungewear.

• White Sneakers: White sneakers are the easiest shoe to pair with any sort of loungewear. They are a staple that never goes out of style, so you can rock them at any age and with almost any look.

There’s nothing serious about wearing loungewear, so you should have fun creating new styles with your comfy clothes. Working from home is the perfect time to experiment and mix and match things you might never have thought would go together.
