There is something somewhat ironic about the fact that I’m writing this article, as historically, I’ve been one of those people who say they “don’t do trainers” and prefer to “err on the side of smart style.” However, after being confronted with a new WFH situation, this has all had to change. I am now well-acquainted with the world of loungewear and have—believe it or not—managed to come round to the idea of tracksuit bottoms (just make them knitted) and leggings (just add a fancy cardi). Yes, miracles can happen.
It is also clear that many of us, especially now since we’re spending a lot of time at home, need a little more comfort in our lives. Luckily for us fashion lovers, there are plenty of brands that are expertly combining stylish design with oh-so cosy fabrics and fits. The result? Pieces that we would happily wear both on the sofa and on our daily walk in the park. Let’s call it the fashion equivalent to the Great British Bake Off: It has universal appeal, it’s low-effort, it’s feel-good, and it puts a smile on your face.
So if you need a little sartorial comfort in your life, scroll down to shop the pieces that are guaranteed to give you that warm fuzzy feeling.
