How to Stay in Your Loungewear All Day and Still Feel Chic

If all you want to do right now is roll yourself up lengthways in a duvet and just lie there in a cosy cocoon, rest assured the Who What Wear team feels the same. But getting dressed can also be important for your mood and general well-being when you're spending significant amounts of time at home, but that's not to say you have to put on anything fancy.

Far from the grotty grey trackies and old sweatshirts from the loungewear days of yore, there are now plenty of chicer items to consider. As such, we've hunted down some of the sleekest and comfiest pieces that will make you feel stylish while keeping you snug. Keep scrolling to see the women inspiring us to join the movement. Then shop our edit of the best loungewear buys.


A pair of knitted bike shorts makes for a fun pairing with a colour-match sweater.

If in doubt, throw on a comfy knitted dress in a neutral shade a la Loïcka Grâce.

This beige knitted co-ord is the epitome of elegance. Just add gold hoop earrings.

Mint hues make for a chic alternative to beiges and browns. Flattering and stylish.

I love the slouchy pyjama vibes of Lizzy's cable knit jumper and striped shorts pairing.

If you love colour, take inspiration from Marianne Thedorsen and go head-to-toe in paint box brights.

If you're looking for low-effort polish, a pair of leggings and a white shirt will do the job nicely.

Linen isn't just for summer. Make like Tanice and wear a linen shorts co-ord with warm slippers.

This outfit is everything we want to wear right now.

If, like Ellie, wearing heels with your loungewear makes you feel better, just do it.

As do knitted-skirt co-ords.

Lesley proves you needn't stick to muted tones. Embrace bright hues, and they'll go great lengths to lift your mood.

Playing dress-up? Just add massive gold earrings. It worked for Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, after all.

A knitted two-piece takes zero effort to style but still looks chic.
