Out with the old and in with the new. 

As we ring in the new year with new goals and a fresh mind, we tend to crave for inspiration when it comes to fashion. Most of us are still working from home and loungewear has become an ideal choice of work attire. You’re in luck because we hunted down the most stylish and cosiest fits from our homegrown brands. From monochrome sets to tie-dye prints and breezy linens, scroll down to find out which style will suit you this year.

Fashionable but preppy

Influencer and entrepreneur Jane Lau is no stranger to the local scene. With her Chuck’s facial masks reaching cult status, she branched out with her lifestyle brand Motherchuckers and added minimal loungewear to her list. This collection is worth adding to cart thanks to its beautiful range of nude and pastel sets with quirky messages. From hoodies and sweatshirts to sweatpants and various cropped tees, it’s so easy to wear it out as a matching set or as separates. Try pairing the hoodie with biker shorts, or slip into the sweatpants while layering an oversized blazer.

The sporty look

Effortlessly cool is what this local activewear brand is known for. Livlola believes in the notion of wearing your pieces from the (gym) studio to the streets. With its recent loungewear collection, you can achieve that from the comfort of your own home too. From warm to pastel tones, feel stylishly relaxed in the Rubik-Empire set or even the Rubik Draw Cord crop paired with Renegade jogger shorts.

Prints galore

Tie-dye made a comeback last year and it’s safe to say that this trend isn’t simmering down anytime soon. Zawu.shop‘s pieces range from basic tees to cute matching sets in perky brights and moody hues. Each piece is handcrafted to suit your needs, although it does take two weeks to arrive on your doorstep. We’re sure it’ll be worth the wait. Lounging around in these easy-to-match colours will brighten up your day, even on the busiest days. 

Chic and minimal

When your hectic schedule calls for back-to-back Zoom meetings, trust Nuria to save the day. Its breezy and contemporary pieces are what you need to look good and feel good. While it’s so easy to fall in love with the warm hues, the minimal silhouettes are what caught our attention. The Liv blouse works great if you need to throw something on for a meeting, while the Ivy blouse is perfect to relax in after a long day. Pair the two with linen or palazzo pants and you’ll be good to go.

Versatile staples

For those who are on-the-go, Bila Bila is what you need to conquer a hectic day. Known for its breezy two-piece sets, these cotton-linen fits are perfect for a warm day out. Whether you’ve had your eye on the matching shirt and pants set or the kimono ensemble, trust us when we say that it’s worth it to pair it together for an impactful look.
