Skinny jeans, sharp tailoring, and rigid fabrics seem incredibly unappealing upon our imminent return to work. Comfortable clothing had an undeniable moment over the last two years, and as we get dressed for the office we find ourselves longing to return to our loungewear.

Fear not, there's no need to compromise on comfort when purveying your work closets. With the right styling tips and tricks, even our most leisurely loungewear can be made office appropriate. Below, we've gathered our favourite loungewear pieces to buy now.

Ganni

Logo sweatshirt

Logomania is having a moment in the current Y2K revival, so why not elevate your casual ensemble of wide-legged denim and white sneakers with a logo clad sweatshirt? Pair with a crisp white suit jacket and brighten up the over all outfit to give this Sunday casual a Monday make-over.

Arket

Zip-Detailed Jersey Leggings

Leggings are no longer exclusive to the couch or the gym. With an elastic waist and zip-up details, these soft jersey leggings were made for a pair of outstanding boots as the split sides show off any delicate detailing or eye-catching colour.

Wool wrap cardigan

Wrap up in wool to keep comfortable at your desk. Worn with winter white denim or a pair of pin-stripe suit trousers, this comfy cardigan has us feeling like we're still curled up at home.

H&M

Rib knit stirrup legging

In an homage to the 1980s, we see ourselves expanding our assortment of stirrups for 2022. The perfect loungewear leggings, this specific rib-knit style in a soft oatmeal shade was made to be worn with kitten heel mules and a crispy white oversized shirt. Or take a cue from Swedish super model Elsa Hosk above and wear your pair with a cropped blazer.

Relaxed T-Shirt Mini Dress

Via & Other Stories

A t-shirt mini dress is arguably toeing the line of what we define as loungewear. We have, however, on multiple occasions found ourselves lounging around in nothing but an oversized t-shirt. In neutral black, this mini dress is the perfect base for most office outfits whether worn over jeans for an early 'aughts throwback or with tights.

CDLP

Heavy Terry Hoodie

A grey hoodie is the basic of basics. It is the perfect layering piece under pinstriped suit jacket worn with matching tourers for a relaxed office look, or thrown atop a mini skirt for an elevated day-to-night ensemble.
