You’ve all seen the meme: if you wear jeans to relax, you’re a psychopath. Tight, constricting – who thought of them as a fashion item? I am seriously dreading the day I have to put jeans back on – the audacity that I’d be expected to wear actual clothes when this is over is astonishing.
Thankfully, today is not that day. If anything positive has come out of lockdown (which isn’t a lot, let’s be honest), except for the fact we’re now all banana bread connoisseurs, it’s the fact that loungewear has become LIFE. Far from feeling frumpy, fashion brands have gone all out to ensure we feel at the top of our game, whilst also ensuring our post-Deliveroo babies are comfortably cushioned. Undoing a button after lunch? I don’t know her.
A step away from the usual glamorous items I usually post from Femme Luxe, the brand has come through with some amazingly comfy, lockdown-friendly sets.
I have to say, they’re a step up from what I began in. A few weeks ago I wore Will’s Avengers PJ bottoms, with fluffy Christmas socks from two years ago. I paired these with the t-shirt Will wore for our first date which I refuse to throw away ‘for nostalgic reasons’, even though the armpits are stained and have holes in. I added a hoodie Will has had since he was 14 and it wasn’t until I caught myself in the mirror that I really began to question my life decisions and get with the loungewear programme.
What are you wearing whilst we’re shielded from other people? If you want any of the sets here, I’ve included the links below.
Enjoy the pictures…I’m literally the worst model ever – so WOODEN – and don’t know how people do this full time! Will had to take thousands of pictures to find ones where I’m not frowning!
This one is so comfy! Wearing it with some gym leggings at the moment, but when we’re allowed out and about I think I could team this with a bralet, leather trousers and heels. I’ve been wearing little crop bras from Primark around the house and when I’m working in the garden, and it’s nice to pull this over them when it gets a bit chilly.
I just get SO bloody cold, so it’s great that this set has a higher neck. These are almost a fleecy / microfibre material, and I’ve worn them a couple of times when heading out for my One Walk Per Day with trainers. The joggers are nice on their own, too.
Khaki Ruched Front Long Sleeve Leggings Loungewear Set
A fave. I am usually the person to go for grey, black and camel, so having some khaki in my loungewear collection is a nice change. This set clings to the body and is ruched in the front, so it’s usually one to wear when I’m feeling body confident. I have also done yoga in this set a couple of times as I know it’s not going to ride up.
Grey One Shoulder Crop Top Loungewear Set
This set is just outrageously glam for an at-home set. I sat and worked in this the other day and felt totally boujie. It does look good, but I’m not 100% sold on the one-shoulder. I get too cold, so generally just wear the joggers alone with a warmer jumper on top.
Lockdown has seriously made me appreciate the value of a comfy set. Of course, I hope it’s all over soon and we can get back to normal, but these will stay as my WFH favourites.
