Like most people, my wardrobe has gone through several major shifts as my lifestyle has changed. From wearing tailored blazers when I was a real estate agent to stocking my closet with trendy seasonal pieces as a fashion blogger each new phase of life has come with wardrobe changes. Now as a mom, this phase of life is filled with mornings at home baking muffins and cuddling with my baby girl. Of course even though I’m at home most days I still want to look and feel my best.
Some days it’s tempting to just stay in my pyjamas all day long. Of course the few times I’ve done this I’ve ended up needing to sign for unexpected packages at my front door (does this seem to always happen to anyone else?!). Loungewear is definitely an important necessity in any woman’s wardrobe and today I’m sharing the essential loungewear pieces that every woman should have in their wardrobe. Clothing that is comfortable, easy to wear and still cute!
Here are 4 loungewear essentials to add you your wardrobe to help you feel pretty and put together for days at home.
4 must-have loungewear pieces to add to your wardrobe
Pretty neutral coloured leggings
Soft stretchy leggings are my favourite thing to wear around home. Most people automatically choose the colour black when it comes to leggings but there are so many more colour options now available. I recommend leaving the bold prints and loud colours for the gym and opt for subtle desaturated tones for lounging around the home. I’ve personally been looking to add a new pair in a light grey tone or pretty pink colour to my loungewear collection.
Save your push up bras for going out – pretty bralettes are the best choice for wearing at home! Not only are they super comfy but pretty straps and lace detailing make your lounging look effortlessly pretty. The Free People Adella bralette is a fashion blogger favourite and an absolute must-have. It comes in so many pretty colours but my personally favourite is the classic white version because of its versatility.
Every girl needs a fun pair of slippers for wearing around the house. If you are looking to invest in a pair that will last you years, I recommend Birdies slippers. I own a pair of Birdies with a gorgeous calf hair leopard print that look so classy for wearing around home. If you are looking for a more budget find, the adorable pink velvet slippers I’m wearing in the photos above are a total steal from Amazon.
For wearing around home I prefer sweaters that are a little bit oversized but have a fitted sleeve that doesn’t get in the way (and is easy to roll up in case I have to quickly clean up a mess). Right now I’m loving all the off the shoulder knits available in stores. Showing hint of skin helps cozy oversized sweaters feel effortlessly chic.
