Elevated Loungewear Trends
“Where were you when…the world shut down because of COVID?” It was such a scary and traumatic event, you’ll never forget…much like when the space shuttle, Challenger, exploded, or the planes flew into the twin towers. You never forget. I was in the Bahamas with my sister and the two of us were nervous wrecks. We pretended to enjoy the beautiful paradise-like scenery around us, but we were both riddled with anxiety. COVID changed so many things…including how we dress. Since we stayed mostly at home, we didn’t really need to dress up. Loungewear became a thing. Even top fashion houses embraced loungewear, showing it on the runways.
Fast forward 2 years… and, yay… we are going out and dressing up again, but many of us have a whole new appreciation of loungewear and its function in our lives. We also have so many more beautiful loungewear options to choose from now. COVID sparked an era of elevated, luxurious and beautiful loungewear and I am definitely here for it!
Below, I’m sharing one of my favorite loungewear sets and the top loungewear trends of fall/winter 2022 so that you can look like your most stylish self, even when you’re hanging out or working from home.
By the way, if you’re interested in more of the 2022 fall/winter trends, make sure you check out this post.
My Favorite Lounge Set
Before we get to the loungewear trends (below), I wanted to share my new go-to loungewear set that I grabbed for fall. I know, I know, it’s hard to imagine that fall is right around the corner, but it IS coming! Peak fall is 4 weeks away here in Telluride, Colorado. This lightweight, yet warm wool and cashmere blend set, is SO soft and chic. It looks and feels very luxurious. (Luxe sets, in high-quality fabrics, are actually one of the big loungewear trends this year too)
The pants are a pull-on style with a stretchy waistband that makes them cozy and couch-friendly. I love the flattering wide-leg silhouette on the pants. Wide legs is another big loungewear trend. The over-sized matching sweater can pair beautifully with jeans as well as these pants. I half-tucked the sweater into the pants and pushed up the sleeves. (If you want a slimmer fit with the sweater, I suggest sizing down one size.)
On my feet, I’m wearing a pair of shearling-lined mules. Shearling anything is majorly on-trend for fall/winter. I am a BIG fan of shearling since we have such cold winters. I also love that these mules have a real sole so you can wear these to grab kids from school, grab the mail or any of those quick, ‘pop-out-of-the-house’ errands.
Just In Case…
If you get hot in cashmere or wool, are dealing with hot flashes, or just want the option to take off the sweater, you can wear a basic white tee underneath. I’m wearing a versatile, lightweight linen tee that you can easily wear alone or under sweaters or jackets.
One thing to consider when you’re shopping for your luxe loungewear…can you wear the pieces out of the house. For example, I’ll wear the sweater above with jeans and sneakers for an easy fall look. And, I’ll also wear the pants with a tee and cardigan or jacket for a comfy, pulled-together look to run errands or even travel in. Each piece can be worn with other things in my wardrobe, providing maximum versatility for your investment.
