Loungewear must-haves: From couch to coffee run

Ah, loungewear. Not only is it one of the most comfortable fashion trends going, it’s also surprisingly versatile. Yep, all you need to elevate a casual home ensemble to coffee run/afternoon stroll status is a few clever tweaks. The key to pulling off loungewear in a more public setting is all in the detail – it’s a balancing act between choosing fashion-forward pieces that give you an edge without losing all comfort factor.

If you’re keen to level up your loungewear, you’re in luck – there are plenty of cosy-but-chic pieces making an appearance this season. From oversized button downs paired with leggings to bright sweat sets, there are options galore. Here’s how to upgrade your go-to look with minimal effort.

Choose a fashion forward top

Whether you’re working from home or just heading out for a supermarket shop, why not elevate your go-to leggings or running shorts with a fun top? Go for asymmetric cuts, multi-strapping and cut-out details to add interest without losing out on comfort.

Men can get amongst too. For a more masculine feel, try layering a combination of polo shirt, sweater and bomber jacket for instant sports luxe. Match back with chino shorts for a little polish.

Try Country Road, Cotton On Body Champion, or rebel for great options.

Dress up your bike shorts

Biker short fans rejoice – they’re still a solid staple heading into the warmer months. If you’re hesitant to try the silhouette, dip your toe in with a classic black pair cut just above the knee. (Fans can liven up their collection with a pastel, printed, or metallic pair.) Off the Pilates mat they work best with an oversized white or colour-blocked shirt and chunky leather sandals or white sneakers.

Shop online at Lorna Jane, Running Bare, lululemon athletica or Aje to find the perfect style to suit you.

Go for brights over neutrals

Can’t give up your sweatpants? Refresh this loungewear favourite for the season in bold, punchy colours. When you’re ready to take them off the couch, add a ribbed tank, retro sneakers and a sprinkling of fine gold jewellery and you’re golden. Try bubble gum pink, yellow, lime or tangerine.
Rock any of these colours with looks from Shop online at Lorna Jane, Nike or JD Sports and you’ll be on trend to head out for a coffee run with a bang.

If in doubt, add accessories

Sometimes elevating your look comes down to small details. Dial up the glam factor by layering a combination of gold necklaces and popping on some fine gold earrings and rings. Bags are heavy hitters, too. Go for a petite shoulder bag, belt bag or bum bag for a snazzy way to secure all your valuables. You’ll find a chic accessory at insert retailers i.e. Collette, Country Road, Cotton On, MYER or David Jones.
