These Elevated Loungewear Looks Are Replacing Our Go-To Sweatpants

Pajamas, but make them fashion.

Style

If you're completely over wearing sweatpants every day, I completely feel your pain. Although I love a comfy casual look, I've been yearning for a chic yet practical alternative to my baggy sweats and oversized t-shirts. Not that I don't love a matching sweatsuit, but every now and then a girl needs to pull out that 'feel good' outfit, even at home. As life on the outside is slowly reopening in most areas, some of us are not fully prepared to embrace normal everyday constricting outfits quite yet. At the beginning of the sweeping stay-at-home orders, I raced to get my hands on the most comfortable at-home staples I could find. Now that we're entering a new year, I'm ready for alternatives that still meet my everyday needs without making me look and feel frumpy.

As we slowly transition back to everyday ready-to-wear looks, I am now in the market for stylish pieces perfect for both staying in and going out. The new anti-sweat trend has arrived, meeting all of our needs when it comes to elevated comfort and style. Comfortably worn at home, luxury loungewear is solving our stay-at-home fatigue, smoothly moving us towards sleek all-day looks you'll never want to take off. If you're in need of sophisticated loungewear ideas, scroll to find a few of my favorite looks!

Feather Duster

This champagne feather duster is the perfect embellished silk house coat. Perfect for staying in or going out, this is a super chic addition to your luxury leisure looks. I'm obsessed with this color as it's a soft rendition of an elevated at-home look featuring a low v-neckline, button-down detailing, and an unforgettable feather back and sleeve detail.

Satin Separates

Perfect for a winter beach getaway, this is a 90's inspired three-piece look we all need in our lives. With "its lightweight material flowy enough for summer and its heavy-weight drape made for year-round-luxuriating," this is the perfect go-to satin look. Achieve this look with the Laina Rauma satin bikini along with the matching pajama pants and long sleeve oversized button-down.

Geometric Prints

It's all about the dramatic sleeves for me in this floral print kimono robe. Nothing is more relaxing than a silky kimono and fresh linen sheets on the perfect Sunday afternoon. Doubled as a dress, this is perfect when in need of a touch of luxury in your life.

Luxe Pajama Set

Satin is always a major look especially when worn as a casual outfit. Whether lounging around the house or out and about, it's always a major vibe. When outside the house, pair a satin two-piece with a vintage-inspired shoulder bag and a bold cat eye sunny for an outdoor sophisticated look.

Satin Feathers

The 'Party Pajamas' set is perfect for a weekend escape to Martha's Vineyard or lounging on your back patio. One of the most iconic PJ sets on the internet, this is a major look for the modern fashionista. Pair with a house slipper or flat loafer for a comfy chic outfit.

Cardigan Dress

Undeniably elegant, I'm obsessed with this oversized knit. The Hanifa brand has managed to perfect the balance of chic versatility transforming this classic style into a cozy chic staple every woman needs in her closet. Designed to complement your waist and natural curves, its classic wrap dress design is meant for everyday comfort and flawless style.

Satin Robe

We all love the perfect robe to prance around the house but the robe to wear on a night out is revolutionary. 2020 has shown us that functionality and style can coexist within our day to night looks. Make this look your own with a clutch and jeweled pump for an elegant twist on a classic silhouette.

Velour Set

The Velour tracksuit is yet again taking over the mainstream leisure world with a major upgrade. Whether you have outings to attend or have a comfy luxe moment at home, the oversized velvet look is perfect for an updated yet throwback early 2000's look. Super soft and draping, this is another look you'll never want to take off.

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."
