What is loungewear and how to find it at every price?
What is Loungwear?
Ok, so who is with me on “what is loungewear”?
I don’t know about you but I missed the boat on all this loungewear stuff till now. I literally had never heard the term “loungewear” until a few weeks ago. I actually had to google it!
Of course, I found all kinds of posts about what it means. But, in my opinion, the answer to “what is loungewear” is whatever you feel comfy lounging around in. That could be pajamas or sweats or luxury silk. Loungewear has no rules in my opinion other then it should make you feel comfy and preferably chic.
In this post, I have listed a few options for what I have found comfortable at different stages of my lounging at home experience lately. I also realized loungewear does not need to be expensive or fall apart or look like an old rag. I’ve done some work to find a few great ideas and hope this inspires you to spruce up your at-home game. Why can’t we all look chic at home too, at any price point?
THE NASTY GAL LOUNGEWEAR SET UNDER 50$
I wasn’t sure this set would hold up after a wash or two because it’s incredibly affordable but it’s great quality and the cut is super sexy. I have also worn this sweater with jeans now a few times and could easily wear these shorts to the beach with a white bikini. It comes in a few different colors and since taking a risk with this site and buying this set I have now found tons of other similar sets and bought a few and all of them have been cute. I have this set here in three colors and plan to wear the heck out of the black shorts this summer. For under $50 these nasty gal sets are a total find and I highly recommend!
THE LUNYA WASHABLE SILK SET FOR UNDER $200
Ok, so I don’t know about you but I have always wanted to be super fancy and sleep in silk pajamas but I can’t bring my tomboy self to have to deal with dry cleaning my pajamas all the time. It just seems like so much work for my style.
So you can imagine my excitement when I heard about “washable silk”. I almost didn’t believe it. But let me tell you, ladies, it’s real and it’s amazing! When I got this set I immediately fell in love. It’s super-luxe looking and feels like butter on your skin when you sleep. Oh, and let’s not forget its washable. What more could you ask for?
Just a little tip: These run true to size and the colors are fantastic. If you’re looking to spend a bit more for a luxe Pajama this is your set. Also, the cut on the shorts is super cute and it doesn’t hug at the waist at all. I also feel like you could easily wear this top with a pair of jeans if you wanted to get more uses out of it.
THE H&M TRACK SUIT FOR UNDER $100
As much of a tomboy as I am, I’ve never really been a tracksuit kinda girl. I actually wasn’t even shopping for this when I found it and I only got it out of sheer boredom and a need for retail therapy. I was convinced I would return it the second it arrived.
Well, boy was I surprised when it arrived! Firstly, the color is super gorgeous and feminine and it is shockingly soft. I was still a little skeptical that when I washed it, it would shrink or fade and it did not. It still looks new after a few washes now.
So now I’m a total convert and live in this tracksuit. It’s super cute and makes me feel really girly because of this soft nude/salmon color. If you don’t have a tracksuit I can’t urge this purchase enough. I’ve paired mine with a cream-colored sports bra for workouts and also with a white bodysuit to just feel cute and less casual in it.
LUNYA COZY COTTON SWEATER SET UNDER $220
After I found the Lunya site I saw this sweater and fell in love with the look. I also got the matching pants as well and I find myself sleeping in this most nights. My first thought when wearing these was that I felt expensive and a bit like a queen. The neutral color is great and you could wear this sweater in winter with cream leggings and uggs and be super chic. The button detail is great too. As for the pants, they are a bit warm so if you are in a colder climate or want something to lounge around in and be warm in these are great. I would not recommend them in a warmer climate. Also, the pants have a great deal of stretch so get your size. I got my sweater a size up as I wanted to wear it baggy with jeans sometimes too. This set washes wonderfully as well. no pilling at all.
