Integrate the athleisure fashion trend into your wardrobe with loungewear. This type of apparel is designed to be comfortable, but it’s also stylish. Lounge apparel comes in men’s and women’s sizes to fit every body, along with a wide range of colors, prints, and designs to suit your preferred aesthetic. Keep reading to discover our favorite loungewear pieces and how to wear them.
There are plenty of options when it comes to choosing loungewear for women. For maximum versatility, consider creating a loungewear capsule wardrobe with pieces you can mix and match. A good place to begin is with a collection of loungewear bottoms.
Pajama pants come in fabrics for every season. Cotton poplin PJ bottoms for spring and summer come in soft colors and prints like pastel gingham. For fall and winter, consider brushed flannel pajama bottoms or fleece PJ pants. These pants have full elastic waists for all-day comfort, and some are equipped with drawstrings for a custom fit.
Women’s yoga pants are another option. They’re comfortable enough to wear for a day lounging around the house, but you can also wear them to the gym or yoga class. Women’s active yoga pants come in regular and plus sizes, with straight-leg and flared styles available.
There are even capri yoga pants if you prefer a cropped style. Antimicrobial moisture-wicking fabric and UPF 50 sun protection keep you feeling fresh and safeguards against UV rays, so they’re a great choice for an outdoor yoga class.
You may also want one or more pairs of women’s sweatpants for your loungewear wardrobe. Women’s joggers have a retro-inspired look; they have elastic waists with drawcords and are fitted around the ankles. Lands’ End’s Serious Sweats sweatpant is another comfortable, stylish option. It's made from ultra-soft French terry, with side pockets and a wide full-elastic waist.
When it comes to tops, there are just as many options. A Supima cotton crewneck tee is a staple that works for every wardrobe, and it comes in multiple colors for fashion versatility. There are also Supima tunics if you want a top that reaches past the hips, along with Supima cotton women’s polo shirts for a dressier look that’s still super-comfortable.
Another loungewear top for women is the Performance Tugless Tank. You can wear it for workouts or relaxing; it has a built-in shelf bra for support and a stylish structured look. The fabric wicks away moisture to keep you dry, and there’s an antimicrobial finish to prevent odor-causing bacteria from accumulating. The blend of polyester and spandex allows for freedom of movement, and the tugless design eliminates wardrobe malfunctions.
There are also just as many men’s loungewear options. Men’s pajama pants have many of the same features as women’s—they’re crafted from soft brushed flannel with full-elastic waists. They can be worn around the house with a T-shirt or PJ top, and they come in an array of colors and prints, including classic plaid.
Men’s sweatpants come in multiple styles, including on-trend joggers. A blend of cotton and polyester makes these men’s lounge pants comfortable and durable. They’re equipped with a full-elastic waist and drawcord for an always-comfortable custom fit, and they have rib-knit ankle cuffs that stay in place. Serious Sweats are another option for guys; they come in sherpa-lined styles for extra warmth in the winter. If you’re looking for a birthday or holiday gift for the man who has it all, you can’t go wrong with a pair of these sweats and a comfy T-shirt.
Men’s shorts are another option when putting together a loungewear outfit. Like the sweatpants, they’re equipped with elastic waists, and some have drawcords. In addition to athletic shorts made from moisture-wicking polyester, there are cargo shorts and deck shorts that are as comfortable as they are stylish.
When shopping for men’s T-shirts, there are Supima cotton tees from which to choose. This type of cotton retains its structural integrity through many washings and its colorfast for lasting vibrancy. There’s also a wide range of men’s polo shirts in high-performance fabrics. They have antimicrobial and moisture-wicking properties, and they’re soft with a hint of stretch. Men can wear one of these polos to the gym or for a casual day at home.
Along with these lounge outfits, there are other apparel pieces that can increase your comfort level. Spa robes are a must-have for after the shower; there are also fleece sherpa-lined robes that you can wear over your PJs for extra warmth. Add a pair of fleece- or flannel-lined women’s or men’s slippers to your outfit to treat your feet. These slippers come in many sizes and styles, and they make a great gift.
There’s also cozy home décor, such as faux-fur throw blankets you can drape over an armchair or sofa. Experiment with loungewear outfits, accessories, and home goods to find which pieces most appeal to you.
