How to Style Loungewear Trends

by Elisabeth Kleppinger

With more of us staying at home, sweats and loungewear are becoming a huge trend. This effortless look is easy to rock, and great loungewear pieces should be staples in everyone’s wardrobes. For 2020, the best styles when shopping for loungewear are all black basics, tie-dye pieces, matching sweat sets, oversized graphic t-shirts/sweatshirts, and bike shorts. All of these trends can be mixed and matched together to make numerous outfits for the upcoming seasons.

ALL BLACK

When you pair black leggings with a fitted black top of your choice it creates a high fashion look. To dress up this outfit add some statement hoop earrings and high Nike socks and chunky sneakers. You can repeat this look with any pairing of black loungewear pieces to get the same effects.

TIE DYE

Recently, tie-dye has been blowing up as a fashion trend for Spring and Summer 2020. You can try out this trend with tie-dye socks, shirts, shorts, or sweats. When wearing this trend balance out the pop of color with classic solid color items. Shown below, the oversized tie-dye trend is balanced with sleek black ankle-length leggings and basic black sandals.

MATCHING SET 

This is the easiest loungewear trend to style because you essentially buy the whole outfit together. When your outfit has a monochromatic element, it automatically looks expensive and put together. For Spring and Summer weather you can also do a matching set with shorts or tie the sweatshirt around your shoulders or waist for a model off duty look.

BIKER SHORTS

Biker shorts are a basic that everyone should have in their wardrobe. These shorts are longer than regular shorts which provides a bit of modest protection. These are a fun way to create variety in your looks because you can find them in virtually every color and pattern. They also can be dressed up or down. In the photo below I paired mine with strappy sandals and fun sunglasses for a more dressy look.

OVERSIZED JACKET

Another super easy to style loungewear trend are oversized jackets. You can pick from oversized blazers, denim jackets, or leather ones to create this look. This trend can be worn with almost any loungewear pieces, but I chose to style it with plain sweats, sneakers, and a cropped tee.

If this time in quarantine has taught me anything, it is the importance of being comfy and cozy while looking put together. The most important tip to remember when styling loungewear is balance. If you decide to wear baggy or oversized items on the bottom half, make sure it is paired with fitted items on top, and vice versa. This also goes for color or patterns. If you have bright accessories, keep the rest of your outfit more monochrome or muted. By following these tips on how to style loungewear trends, you will have an effortless model off-duty look. Whoever said sweats and loungewear couldn’t be fashionable was definitely wrong.
