Making Loungewear Feel Put-Together: 5 Easy Tips


This time of year there are so many moments where we want to curl up and stay extra cozy: whether it’s because we have some time off from work, we’re visiting family for the holidays, or simply because it’s getting dark out so dang early. That disappearing sunlight, mixed with the colder weather, just begs for us to dress in a comfy + cozy manner.

My favorite thing to shout from the rooftops is that comfortable does not have to mean sloppy. We can still easily feel put together in our coziest loungewear pieces, they may just need a few tweaks here and there from how we normally throw the pieces together to take the look to the next level.

5 Ways To Elevate Your Favorite Loungewear Pieces

Loungewear is actually quite easy to elevate – and it’s one of my favorite things to do. Here are 5 simple tips I love to incorporate when getting dressed in comfy clothes:

1| Reaching for a matching set is not only a ridiculously easy way to get dressed, it creates a streamlined look that feels very chic. 

But a matching set is definitely not required – any soft pant and top that you love to lounge in works. In this video I specifically reached for Anthropologies’s famous cashmere sweater (which I highly recommend) and my go-to faves, Gap’s Cashsoft Sweater Pants (but here’s a fantastic similar option if Gap’s pants are low in stock).

2| Add jewelry, your favorite + prettiest pieces.

3| Try a tuck. Tucking your top into pants or your pants into boots helps the whole outfit feel more intentional. You can also opt to roll – whether it’s your sleeves or pants if they allow. Any little extra touches of styling goes a long way.

4| The wrong shoe theory works perfectly here! Skip the slippers, athletic sneakers, or cozy UGGS that you might commonly reach for with loungewear and try a ballet flat, oxford, loafer, or chunky boot.

5| Add a statement coat (or anything besides your lived-in fuzzy fleece jacket).
