Since the start of the pandemic last year, dressing up hasn't been anyone's top priority. With most people staying at home to go to school or work, it didn't make sense to get dolled up or put on a cute outfit. But that doesn’t mean we can’t dress up and look good just for the heck of it. Celebrities and influencers continue to dazzle us with their well-put-together looks, albeit in toned down, understated iterations.
Whether it's going out to do errands or staying home as usual, our fave stars have turned to: loungewear. Specifically, comfortable sweaters and sweatpants. Loungewear isn't only comfortable, but versatile and functional during these hectic times.
It may seem a tad bit too casual for going out at first, but somehow these celebs know how to make it work. If you want to find out how to rock loungewear (in and out of the house), take a look at these influencers and the many ways they've styled it.
Different ways to wear chic loungewear, according to influencers:
1. Sports bra/cropped top
To balance out the loose fit of baggy sweats, opt for a tighter-fitting a top like a sports bra or cropped top. Take it from Rei Germar, who loves sporting cute sports bras with her sweatpants.
This combo is definitely cute and comfy at the same time!
An outfit in a singular color is an easy, effortless way to look polished. Check out Angelique Manto, who looks so chic in these monochromatic loungewear ensembles.
With your sweats, going for a monochromatic outfit is a surefire way to look clean and polished—as if you didn't even try!
It's an understatement say Ida Anduyan knows how to style loungewear. More precisely, she knows exactly how to make loungewear look ready for a day or night out. One of the many ways she does this is by wearing blazers over her sweats.
Whether it's staying home for a Zoom meeting or going out to run some errands, a blazer is a piece you need to level up your loungewear and look more polished.
Another way to elevate loungewear is by pairing it with sandals or heels. The combo may seem unlikely, but it's a good mix of casual and formal. As seen on resident fashionista Heart Evangelista, even your coziest outfit can be dressed up with the help of stylish sandals.
This is your sign to wear your favorite lounge pieces, slip on your favorite pair of sandals, and just parade around the house!
5. Bright colors
Loungewear can become quite repetitve especially if you stick to basic colors. Wearing neutrals may be foolproof, but a pop of color surely won't hurt. In fact, it can make your outfit go from plain to striking!
David Guison shows us many ways we can incorporate a bit of color into our basics, and how it makes all the difference!
A playsuit, which is one-piece garment, is a unique take on typical loungewear. It not only accentuates your body in a flattering manner, but overall looks so put-together in an effortless way.
Kyla Zuniga knows how to rock playsuits in simple but chic ways. If you want to add more details to your playsuit, then wear a jacket or blazer over it, or include dainty accessories.
7. Unisex sneakers
While it may be easy and quick to choose one's go-to pair of white sneakers, unisex sneakers are a little more fun! Specifically, these bright, colorful ones as seen on Rhea Bue.
If colorful sneakers aren't your cup of tea, then go for neutral shades or colors in muted down tones. Nevertheless, a good sneaker is a good match for spicing up loungewear.
