How Loungewear Has Made Our Stay-at-Home Lives Interesting

There is no doubt that our dressing styles have changed since the last one year. Credit? The novel coronavirus pandemic. We have been confined to our houses, doing most things online or virtually, be it job, shopping, or even dating. Loungewear and sweatpants have been our BFFs all this while. Shall we break-up and go back to our usual outfits and heels? Chances are less since everyone has found what the comforts of a home mean.

Having said that, it is obvious that summer and winter loungewear will remain in trend just as remote working is to stay. Staying at home is safe, carefree and no doubt much productive. Since the trend is still there and will probably be staying for sometime more, here are the things that this year’s loungewear sets are having.

Winter Loungewear

Cosy fabrics for loungewear are a must

Loungewear, obviously cannot be termed as loungewear unless you can get lazy in them. So, you can expect brands and designers to manufacture loungewear made of fabrics that are soft to feel and hugs your skin, feeling like a second skin. The sustainable, breathable materials that are dyed and designed not only look great but also sustain for a long time.

Colour palettes that add freshness to your daily wear

Summer or winter, our loungewear colours matter a lot in the COVID and post-COVID times. The splash of colours on those cheer us up while we work from home. If you have to run errands, throw on plus-size jumpers on your loungewear, and they would double up as your shopping outfit too. Friends coming over and planning a rooftop party? Wear a Cashmere Poncho UK with your favourite loungewear. While for summers, you can go for shades like light pinks, blues and yellow, winters can see you in reds, oranges, dark blues, black and greys.

Elevated designs, patterns and prints

From being just outfits to wear when at home, loungewear has become our go-to companion over the last one year. Jazzy animal prints to embellished or textured loungewear, they add a new dimension to our wardrobe.

Lesser-known facts about the outfits that you now love the most

What you wear to bed is no doubt your personal choice. But it may not be tattered rags. You may feel comfortable in a matching pyjama set or may choose to sleep in a cute onesie, doubling with made in Italy Jumpers. But do you know how your favourite nightwear made it through? Check out.

  1. The word “pyjama” comes from the Indian word “piejamah,” which described loose pants, usually made of cotton, that were tied at the waist. These comfy trousers, that were a favourite of the middle-class Bengali men, were admired by the British colonials as the perfect outfit for afternoon naps. When the colonials returned back, they brought along with them the trend.


  1. Back in the early 1900s, fashion designer Paul Poiret designed silk pyjamas that can be worn outside in public, during the day or at night. Japan has taken this trend a step further, with Kigurumi, which are pyjamas/onesies that are made to look like giant stuffed animal costumes.


  1. The footed pyjamas are not meant for infants only. Those were actually made for adults, with the very first versions having socks sewn to their pyjamas. Not only were they made to keep their feet warm, but also to prevent termites and other bugs to disturb them during their sleep.


  1. While the trend is all about loungewear and nightsuits, sleeping in your own skin is still the most popular. Reports show that in the US, about 31% men and 14% women prefer sleeping naked. In the UK, on the other hand, the numbers are slightly higher, with 47% of men and 17% women sleeping naked.
