Calling all Loungewear Lovers! I don’t know about you, but whenever I step through my front door after a long day at work, or an arduous day of retail therapy for that matter, the first thing I think about is what to wear. Now this might strike you as odd, but for me there is nothing more crucial than getting home and slipping into something a little more comfortable. Jeans and shirts are a no-go, so I immediately turn to my selection of loungewear (what I like to call “comfies”).

Here at MFM, we like to cover all areas of the wardrobe. Having recently discussed the latest outerwear from parka jackets to the on trend boxy fit coat, let us take you to the Land of Nod with our loungewear picks that will have you doorbell-ready for whoever comes knocking at your door. Because let’s face it, who wants to greet the window cleaner in anything other than stylish sleepwear.

Matching

Let’s get one thing straight. This discussion comes with a warning: LOUNGEWEAR = NOT FOR EXTERNAL USE. While I’d like to say I’ve only seen people where loungewear indoors, there has been a number of tragic cases (and this, I might add, extends to pyjamas) where some people have opted to wear their comfies out in public; it isn’t necessary to wear pyjamas to the supermarket! I’m all for the comfies, but please keep them at home!

Whether you’re thinking about wearing loungewear for bedtime, or for just daytime mooching, there are no rules written in tablets of stone when it comes to loungewear. You won’t hear me saying this too often, but when at home, throw the rule book out of the window – except, perhaps, for the No-Onesie-Rule (it’s just personal preference but they’re not for me!).

Many designers opt for matching tops and bottoms which, I have to admit, lean more toward the pyjama look. Unlike mixing tops with bottoms, this uniformity gives a more bedtime look which will have you counting sheep in no time. And for this, there is no need to look any further than Mr Porter to get your hands on the most stylish sleepwear as the online store features looks from Schiesser to the loungewear specialist Derek Rose.

Mixing

What is more, this time of year is all about layering so apply this to your indoor looks with plenty of over-sized sweaters. My favourite look is an over-sized polo-neck jumper, known as my “cottage jumper”, which keeps me warm during weekend trips to the Lake District. I like to mix and match my tops and bottoms which, unlike matching 2-pieces, allow for a more daytime look, and still give you the chance to style your wardrobe; even if it’s only you who sees it. For example, graphic t-shirts were huge across the fashion spectrum this summer, so why not pair that SS13 t-shirt you loved so much with some sweatpants or pyjama bottoms. Or if your style is more old school, why not treat yourself to some new loungewear bottoms but pair it with your favourite band or I ♥ NYC t-shirt. Then again, a plain t-shirt goes a long way, just choose your favourite colour and you’re good to go. All you’ll need now is a cup of tea and a biscuit (or five), but again who’s to judge?

Socks, slipper and robes

Finally, there’s no point getting all cosy and complaining of cold toes. Here is just some of the amazing accessories you can use to fight off the chill this winter from socks to dressing gowns – like this on trend orange robe from Ralph Lauren; just make sure there isn’t a hole in the pocket as we wouldn’t want you to end up like the boy in the Polar Express!

Mr. Sandman bring me a dream

‘Twas a dreary rainy morning, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a onesie. That’s right, this has been our guide to keeping stylish indoors this season without having to resort to buying a onesie (please, I beg you, leave these to the babies and toddlers of the world). From stylish 2-pieces to contrasting tops and bottoms, there is an array of loungewear out there at the moment just waiting for you.
