13 elevated loungewear pieces to wear all winter long

We want everything we wear this winter to be this comfortable


Yes, another loungewear piece, but hear us out – we know you’d rather be planning your Christmas party outfits, checking that you have enough glitz and sparkle to last you until 2021. Loungewear is often the boring afterthought when shopping for a new season, the clothing you’ll spend evenings and early mornings in before ‘real life’ kicks into gear.

This year has turned ‘real life’ well and truly on its head, and with all the stress and troubles of the world on our shoulders right now, we’d quite like them to be clad in something comfortable. Loungewear does not have to be boring and beige – quality, luxurious loungewear can be the warm hug you need after a long day, or, exactly the armour you need to face it.

High street design teams are really honing in on the importance of great loungewear right now – after all, it was the only category of clothing that became more popular this year, as most retail buying fell off a cliff. We are investing in our comfort, and to us, that means investing in looking good as well as feeling good.
