With the current zeitgeist for wellness – whether that’s seeking mindfulness through colouring books or a healthier diet through spiralised courgetti – it’s hardly surprising that our wardrobes are also taking note. Athleisure is being touted as the newest catch-all trend, but what does it mean? Well, in short, comfortable leggings are now as acceptable to wear for the weekly shop as our beloved skinny jeans, while hoodies, trainers and workout gear aren’t just restricted to the gym. Here are our favourite ways to style our Lounge collection for comfortable and stylish looks.
1. The travel look
A-listers have been looking effortlessly chic pre-and-post flight for years, and the secret is simpler than it appears. Teaming oversized tops in natural fibres with comfortable trousers and practical Supergas are the perfect base pieces. Just pack a cocooning cashmere scarf, or jumper, in your hand luggage to battle the air con, alongside our Spa Relax Pulse Point Oil to have you feeling relaxed from take-off to touch-down.
2. The Pilates look
As at home in your gym bag as they are worn for an after-class coffee, these relaxed separates make for a seamless workout-to-weekend transition. Our roll-top trousers are both fluid and flattering, with a roll waistband that can be worn as high or low as you like. Team with oversized tops and then add our luxurious cashmere hoodie when your class is over – naturally breathable, it will regulate your temperature when you leave the studio and head outside.
3. The brunch look
Give your friends the clever illusion of a super-polished outfit at 10am brunch with our Ultimate Leggings tucked into boots. The sculpting 360-degree stretch ensures the leggings are supremely comfortable and flattering (leaving you more room for that extra croissant). They’re also thick and opaque enough to give the look of a substantial pair of smarter black trousers – all with the comfortable feel of stretchy leggings. Add to that ankle boots, our silk-trim hoodie or a classic leather jacket and you’ve got a formula that looks incredibly chic and modern but feels as if you’re lounging around at home.
