Get ready to relax in style and let our loungewear must-haves elevate your at-home wardrobe.

By Lindsay Samson

Sep 14, 2021

Thanks to an ever-evolving pandemic that has left many of us working from home, loungewear has been enjoying something of an extended moment over the past year. And with lockdown regulations around the world continually in flux, it would seem that the casual style philosophy may stick around for a while longer. But even if everything went right back to normal tomorrow, we don’t think we’d be ditching our loungewear, not with all the increasingly innovative and chic takes on the casual staples that have peppered the collections of designers around the world. Keen to switch up your at-home ensembles a little? Here are four of our must-have loungewear pieces. 



The Kimono

When it comes to loungewear, the kimono is a clear power player. An exercise in everyday opulence, the garment's loose-fitting and flowing nature will see you swanning about as its soft fabric elegantly swishes around your ankles. Made to order and expertly cut to drape gracefully across the body, Diarrablu’s Arte Blanc Awa Kimono exudes a sense of unparalleled luxury. Meanwhile, its painterly motif, crisp white hue, and flattering wrap silhouette make it precisely the choice for those who prefer to merge elegance with practicality. Alternatively, try the brand’s strikingly patterned Saly Rose Sirene Kimono. Featuring a detachable sash belt, open front, and vibrant color palette, it’s an ideal choice for those lazy summer days by the pool or when you’re desperate to add a little glamour to your work-from-home life.

The Wide-Legged Trouser

Loungewear is first and foremost about comfort, and what’s comfier than a pair of wide-legged trousers that allow you to let loose. There’s also a marked sense of nonchalant ease that’s evoked by the style. Featuring a relaxed fit and boxy silhouette, it requires little accessorizing: all you need is a cocktail in one hand and your favorite summer read in the other. And while there are plenty of styles to choose from, Viviers’ Samurai Pants is one that simply oozes easy-going glam. Artisanally crafted from pure silk satin at the South African brand’s atelier, the flowy, pleated style is meticulously tailored, making it the perfect loungewear separate to pair with a classic camisole.

The Tracksuit

Though the tracksuit was first made in the 1930s expressly to keep the body warm before and after sporting activities, it’s since become both a streetwear and loungewear staple. And as more and more designers offer their take on the casual classic, it’s garnering an even broader appeal, with even the most discerning of dressers adding the top-to-toe matching sets to their wardrobes. But we’re not talking about that long forgotten gym tracksuit that you haven’t worn in years. No, the modern iteration is far chicer and once again Viviers has stepped up to deliver a set injected with a hefty dose of glamour. Comprising a roll-neck top and drawstring pants characterized by a loose, curved shape and beaded detailing at the hem, the Ombré Tracksuit Duo is made from organic hemp and tie-dyed by hand using local techniques, the perfect combo of craftsmanship and sustainability. Pro-tip: team the versatile piece with a pair of heels for your next big night out and you’ve got an evening look that deftly blends glamour with athleisure.

The Jumpsuit

A timeless trans-seasonal piece, the jumpsuit is an effortless essential in the modern wardrobe as well as being a coveted loungewear style. With its one-and-done nature, it’s the perfect hybrid of both comfort and style, serving as something of a chic elevation of your classic joggers and sweatshirt combo. The only downside? You will not want to get out of them for a while. Hand-dyed in Nairobi by local craftspeople, the slouchy, utilitarian style jumpsuits by Kenyan label KikoRomeo are a simple solution when you’re struggling to decide on an ensemble for unwinding in. Available in a variety of on-trend tie-dye styles (from white and blue to rusty-red and navy) and a warm, butterscotch shade of yellow, they feature button and zip closures for easy fastening, side and patch pockets. They also have an internal adjustable elastic that allows you to control your comfort and adjust the silhouette as you choose—which, if you ask us, is a pretty handy feature when you’re an armchair fashionista who prioritizes ease above all else.
