Style Advisor: Elevated Loungewear

From the sofa to the street, fashion’s new mood means you can wear your comfiest loungewear out and about with style. If you thought hoodies, sweats and baggy Tees were meant to be reserved for chilling out at home, think again. With cult sportswear brand Y3, streetwear giants Off-White and CK Performance serving up a collection of technical pieces (the latter are as well-suited to the gym as they are the pub or the sofa), you can build yourself a pretty smart wardrobe of lounge and sportswear pieces that’s as versatile as it is stylish. Kick back and relax with our guide to wearing loungewear with a high-end twist.

WEAR IT OVERSIZED AND LAYERED

Take your activewear cues from this smart gentleman who looks about as chill in front of the camera as it’s possible to be. Layers are a key aspect of pulling this look off, as are baggy, oversized pieces. Layer Y3’s anorak over your favourite tracksuit bottoms for an outfit that’s nonchalant and slick in equal measure.

UP YOUR HOODIE GAME

Loungewear and sportswear are often pretty interchangeable, which is ironic because the activities they pertain to are not. This guy in hooded sweatshirt doesn’t look like he’s going to the gym – but he’s wearing clothing that wouldn’t look out of place there. A failsafe hoodie is ready for the urban jungle when teamed with a slick Parajumpers puffa.

THE STREETWEAR STAPLES

It might be becoming a hackneyed term, but streetwear is still high on the style agenda. When loungewear essentials like zip-up sweats, T-shirts and track pants come with hefty street names like Off-White and Y3 attached to them, they’re instantly cooler than their more basic counterparts. Wear cropped trousers under an oversized Tee with collab trainers to nail the look. Comfort with style.
