Fancy snuggling up on the sofa in something comfortable? Slip into these cosy buys...
Sometimes, there's nothing better than to relax in loose-fitting loungewear - staying in is the new going out after all.
Of course, loungewear is more topical than ever, now that we are again being advised to spend more time at home in light of rising coronavirus cases.And, with more of us than ever working from home, it's important we're all as comfortable as possible during what can feel like an anxious time.
Loungewear is the epitome of of casual comfort, and with more of us realising the true value - both mentally and physically - of self-care, there's now more choice in the shops than ever.
While loungewear used to be a dull selection of nighties and brightly-coloured pyjamas, the selection is now chic, neutral, and stylish, meaning there's no need to feel a bit slobby if you're spending all day inside. In fact, these The White Company slippers are more stylish than some of our shoes!
Plus, plenty of our picks below could easily be worn outside too, so remember to head out for some all-important fresh air if you are more spending time inside that usual.
But whether it's a lazy Sunday or a cold evening after work (autumn is coming in, after all), slipping into your most comfy clothes is one of the best feelings when you're in need of some down time. Not sure where to start? Click through our selection of the cosiest loungewear fashion in stores and online...
