Winter Loungewear Essentials for Women
While plenty of fashion trends come and go, athleisure and loungewear have dominated the sartorial world for years, and instead of fading out, it’s gaining more traction than ever. Even if you don’t live a fitness-oriented lifestyle, chances are you own several pieces that fit into this category. As we’re in the thick of winter, it’s important to ensure you have all the loungewear essentials that keep you cozy on chilly nights and look stylish and on-trend as you run errands, attend classes, or parent your children. Whether you need to revamp your wardrobe completely or looking to add essential pieces to complete your loungewear collection, keep reading for all the essentials every woman needs.
First on the list isn’t a loungewear set at all, but something that not only compliments your aesthetic at home or on the go but makes you feel luxurious the way loungewear is intended to make you feel. Cashmere socks are like a hug on your feet, and with their high-quality textile are guaranteed to last a lifetime. While you need to launder your cashmere differently than you would cotton and other materials, these make your feet feel like they’re inside marshmallows and are worth the extra effort. No winter loungewear set is complete without adding a pair of indulgent cashmere socks.
Robes are the cherry on top of loungewear sets when you spend the day or evening indoors. There are plenty of opportunities during the winter to cozy up by the fireplace with a book, Netflix, and chill or have a girl’s night enjoying wine and a charcuterie board. Keep things cozy with a luxurious robe. You don’t have to be a new mother or expectant parents to appreciate the level of comfort a waffle knit robe brings during the winter months.
If you still need to get several women’s loungewear sets in your wardrobe, consider this your warning that you need to invest in several. The beautiful thing about loungewear is with it being in trend; there are so many options that make it appropriate to wear throughout the day. They make great sets to wear to work, school, play dates, and anything else on your schedule. In addition to their comfort, loungewear sets reduce decision fatigue when figuring out what to wear as they are a one-and-done outfit. Pair them with a clean pair of athletic shoes or fuzzy slides, and you always look pulled together.
High Waisted Leggings
Whether your best feature is your legs or not, leggings are essential for women’s winter loungewear. Showing off not only your legs but your rear end is never a bad thing, and a high-waisted pair of leggings can lift you and hold you in all the right places. Opt for a neutral color like black, navy, or on-trend oatmeal. Pair with a cropped jacket or an oversized sweatshirt, depending on your mood.
The great thing about cold weather is you’re allowed to play with fun textures regarding your clothing. Sherpa and faux fur add dimension to your loungewear set and help you feel like your outfit is elevated even though you’re comfortable. Sherpa jackets are a great way to add texture and warmth in cold weather. While puffer coats have their place, a fun fleecy jacket keeps you on trend and safe from the winter elements.
When fanny packs first came back on the fashion scene a few years ago, people that wore them in the 80s swore that this trend wouldn’t last long, but the opposite has proven true. Today social media influencers, celebrities, college-age girls, middle-aged women, and beyond all embrace the benefits of the fanny pack. The best part is these belt bags take pressure off your shoulders and spine, making the comfort of your loungewear set even more pronounced. If you don’t already have a fanny pack, opting for one in black to wear either around your waist or across your chest is a must this winter.
Winter loungewear essentials can include other items like a cute beanie with or without a pom, a snood, and even a cozy night dress and slippers, but the above items are pieces that can be worn day and night, no matter the activities you have planned. Add them to your wardrobe today and reap the benefits of comfort and style.
