Loungewear can be a tricky terrain to navigate. Just the name conjures up images of fraying tracksuit bottoms and shapeless t-shirts. Yet fear not we have selected some truly exceptional pieces designed to instantly elevate the spirit and make the transition from work to play a glamorous one.
Whoever insinuated that pyjamas were dowdy and deeply unsexy would be well advised to consider this superb creation from Eberjey. The Lady Godiva chemise and matching pant fashioned from the softest cotton and with feminine lace detailing around the bust line achieves the impossible, managing to be both comfortable and truly alluring. Take your pick of color, either rosewater, a delectable powdery pink for a girlish vibe, or opt for the pebble, a sultry dark grey for refined elegance.
Pure silk can sometimes be the perfect antidote to combat a stressful day. The instant hit of a sumptuous fabric close to the skin is enough to banish the blues. For this reason we love Fred & Ginger’s exquisite kimono, with it’s billowing sleeve and fitted shape, designed to make you feel like complete goddess the minute it envelops the body. For those who value a looser fit then Fleur of England Ruby Kimono should be at the top of your wish list. Opt for Crush in a deep raspberry or try the Daisy Dreams in a soft cream for a more natural look.
For a splash of daring opulence and for those in a decidedly come hither mood then your first choice could only be Ell & Cee’s Black Magic Maxi in a lip smacking silk chiffon with criss cross sequin straps. Completely transparent it will certainly send pulse rates sky high. Team with the Black Magic Tassle Knickers to complete the look and maintain a modicum of respectability.
Loungewear needn’t necessarily apply to items of clothing. Sometimes it can feel great to whip off the underwired, padded bra and opt for something a little less structured. Soft triangle bras can be a great option for lounging. Our top pick would be any one of the beautiful creations from Beautiful Bottoms. Crafted from the finest silk, we love their delicate prints and quirky details. In fact the two mavericks behind this label, Lauren and Poppy, are introducing an extensive loungewear collection for next spring summer. You’ll be able to purchase a vast array of their camisoles, dreamy nighties and sparkly robes here at Fox & Rose. We can’t wait.
