A work-from-home lifestyle has led many to embrace a more relaxed look. Comfortable but still presentable and practical, the fashion world has seen the emergence of a loungewear trend. But what is loungewear, exactly?
In terms of comfort and style, loungewear settles somewhere between athleisure and sleepwear. It looks stylised and polished, yet with a soft and relaxed fit. Many people confuse sleepwear with loungewear, and it’s easy to see why. However, there are defining features that help distinguish them from one another.
The main notable difference between loungewear and sleepwear is that loungewear offers a more tailored silhouette. Boasting neutral colour palettes, these styles easily coordinate with other garments (or even a pair of jeans) instead of having matching prints like a pyjama set might.
Our Leisure Mode range offers quintessential staples for round-the-clock relaxation. Coordinate your look to incorporate these silhouettes into your everyday for a polished but laid-back style that knows how to go from couch to cafe.
