Loungewear has become the buzzword of the post-COVID-19 fashion narrative. Often defined by sleepwear, the genre has gone through an upgrade. Unassuming printed pajamas have been replaced by statement joggers, oversized shirts have been knocked off by statement tunics, and denim shorts have become a Gen-Z approved substitute of lazy culottes.
If you think the lockdown will deter fashion’s leading fixtures from delivering inspirational sartorial moments, think again! Here are some of the leading influencers in loungewear, giving us a reason to re-think beyond the basics.
Rule number one of perfecting the loungewear rule? Go for soothing hues and billowing silhouettes. This Zimmerman number on Mitali Sagar of House of Misu makes for a perfect summer look.
Keep it fresh
What better way to combat summers while lounging in a lockdown? We suggest opting for a mish-mash of prints and patterns and invest in light, breezy dresses such as the one worn by Masoom Minawala. We love the beautiful artwork featured on it.
Think of loungewear and the first name that conjures up is influencer Chriselle Lim. It’s safe to say that if anyone even before COVID-19 was schooling us on how to keep it chic in loungewear, it was this powerhouse of an entrepreneur. With an all-white look and those black strapped slip-on, we’d say she is delivering a winning moment.
Off-duty is the new cool. Case in point being this ensemble on super influencer Chiara Ferragni. Joggers and hoodies are no more your, lazy-day-in ensemble. Opt for the ones in neutral tones or pastels and ensure to go for a coordinated look.
When you run a brand, why not flaunt it. Supermodel Emily Ratajkowski certainly knows how to conjure up a beach look. This Inamorata printed ensemble on her (comprising of a top and swimming shorts) is what we need for a perfect lockdown summer.
Chic and sleek
Statement shorts might be the latest entrant in the loungewear bracket, but they are here to stay. We absolutely love the sleek pairing of a bright hue against white, what’s more summer than that and influencers doing loungewear?
Classic white shirts
Just in case you are looking for something versatile, a classic white buttoned-down might be your answer. The evergreen appeal is what makes it a coveted piece in every fashion attuned celebs wardrobe. And this look on Alaya Furniturewala is a winning one.
Prints and patterns
There is no other way to indulge in some striking mood by looping in statement prints and patterns. Case in point being Shyma Shetty’s season-appropriate number (paired with her sleek hairdo). We say, what’s not to love?
Polka dots, it is
We understand that polka dots have been done to death, but with these micro renditions of the trend, we have reason to loop in them in our lockdown loungewear treadwheel. Also, this easy-breezy silhouette on Sakshi Sindwani reminds us of beautiful summer afternoons. Influencers doing loungewear is what we need.
When in lockdown, prepping a bit and posing means no harm. Take cues from Bella Hadid on how to loop in neons, and pearls (that anklet is everything) to welcome summer while in lockdown.
When nothing works, swimsuit does
When nothing works, and you are all on your own, slipping into a swimsuit works. This tropical printed number of Danielle Bernstein of We Wore What is what summer dreams are made of.
