I’ll Be Living In These Sets All Season - You Should, Too

Coordinate sets were created for times like this – you know, our new normal of safer at home orders and club quarantine.

Style

I have never been more grateful for a coordinate set than as of late. My two favorite things about this style: ease and versatility. The fact that you can reside in a matching getup for both a date and a Zoom meeting is a gift from the style gods. In addition, the set can be styled separately with everything from flare jeans to a graphic tee. We are sure loungewear has taken over your social media feeds so we decided to show you how we are rocking our favorite sets whether you're out and about or inside chilling. Ahead, find the definition of luxe lounging with a curated list of some of the best loungewear sets to rock this season.

Black on Black Loungewear Set

For the protest or the Target run that can't wait, slip into a black on black set with a powerful message. As for me and my house, my message is Protect All Black Girls. The moment I saw this crewneck from Legendary Rootz, I knew I had to create a DIY set. I already had a pair of comfy joggers from H&M so just like that I had a set that will undoubtedly make Trump supporters cry.

Pop of Color Loungewear Set

Even though the season has changed, just know that the tie-dye trend ain't going anywhere. From Rihanna to Quavo, even celebrities love a good luminous moment. This mix and match Missguided set features two different tie-dye patterns but it still pairs like a cotton candy dream. I can't get enough of the oversized joggers because they are giving 90s while the crop of the top is giving 80s.

Knitted Up Loungewear Set

If cozy and chic were a set, it would be this knitted sweater and jogger set from Boohoo. Loungewear has been the MVP since the beginning of quarantine and it's not letting up especially with the drop in temperatures and increase in COVID cases. If I am going to be in the house, I minus whale be cute! If you want to really serve it up for your living room, find a pair of cute matching socks to create a monochromatic lewk.

Tie-Dye Luxury Loungewear Set

Black girls and luxury should be synonymous. That's the new movement. That's why I'm living in this designer TOMBOI set designed by CR LEE, because I deserve. Of all the sets, I felt most inclined to elevate this top and bottom by coupling it with strappy sandals and a vintage trench coat. The Telfar micro bag, aka the Brooklyn Birkin, deserved to be a part of this Black designer getup; it brought out the contrast in the TOMBOI embroidery. I high-key want to wear this number to every single socially-distanced function.

Velour Dream Loungewear Set

Curated by Charlie Photography/xoNecole

Velour is the word. Style is the game. I went the extra mile and added a velvet headband to really get my point across. The Baby Phat nostalgia is real every time I rock this set because it takes me back to a much simpler time where my Razr phone was my life and being in My Top 8 on MySpace was an honor. Channel that innocent energy while enjoying a new book in your favorite spot on the couch.

You know what? Sometimes, you've got to push a few coins aside and determine in your mind that you're going to invest into your sex life (if you had a sex jar, this would be easier to do, by the way. You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place! Between the joy of being a writer who sometimes gets samples sent to me, the constant research that I do for the couples I work with and having folks shout-out certain items semi-often, I've compiled a list of 12 sex-related items that may seem random AF (a pun is kind of intended there) and, at the same time, can make sex so much better between you and your partner. Where's your pad at? You're definitely gonna wanna take note.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."

When it comes to sexuality, there have always been societal limitations centered on what is "acceptable." However, with more honest conversations about how fluid sexuality and sexual expression can be, now there are so many more opportunities for self-exploration and taking back ownership of our identities again. One couple that is living their truth and being sexual beings unapologetically while living and loving their lives are Jasmine Johnson and King Noire.
