All your favourite brands now make loungewear — these are the chicest of the bunch

Still holding out for your dream loungewear set? Look no further.

All your favourite brands now make loungewear — these are the chicest of the bunch

“Sweatpants are a sign of defeat,” Karl Lagerfeld famously said. “You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants.”

Well, that’s pretty much exactly what happened.  We’re nearly a year into loungewear as a full-time wardrobe, and if you’ve been holding out, you’ve picked the right time to get started. Just about every brand you love has accepted that when we’re alone, we’re wearing tracksuits, and now, eight hundred years in, they’re chic.

Don’t believe us? See them styled below.

Are you sold on sweatpants now? Shop our edit of chic loungewear below.
