How to Make Loungewear a Fashion Statement

If you’re like us, over the last year, you have become a little too used to wearing your favorite sweats and leggings. So how do you transition your love of comfortable clothes back into your social life, events, and a more “normal” world? Just take cues from celebs like Hailey Bieber, Lily Collins, and Ashley Graham, who have been seen out and about rocking bike shorts and matching sweatsuits. Not sure where to begin? Follow these tips to make that loungewear work for you – anywhere!

Co-Ord Sets

Two-piece sets (“co-ords”), from athletic gear to dressy skirt sets to comfortable sweatsuits, have been trending for a few seasons. Make a statement with a loungewear set by dressing it up with jewelry or heels. Or, dress it down for a coffee run with sneakers and a messy bun. Either way, you can’t go wrong with this closet staple, which does not require any extra effort to put together a matching outfit… score!

Add a Layer

Change the vibe of your loungewear basics by adding a statement layer: A denim jacket turns cozy into street chic. An oversized plaid shacket grants the ’90s grunge look. A moto jacket makes you look effortlessly sleek. And a blazer paired with sweats says, “I know how to work and play.”

Not sure what basics you need? The easiest route is a black tee paired with black leggings. Want some color? Celebs are all over colored leggings these days, so why not try them, too?


No loungewear outfit is complete without some solid arch support. And, thankfully, big, chunky sneakers are all the rage right now. Of course, you can’t go wrong with a classic shade like black, tan, or white, but if you’re more daring, a pastel pair will add an extra kick of cuteness to your look.


Blouses are a big no-thank-you after a year of tees and hoodies 24/7. Instead, dress up that casual look with either a chunky gold necklace or a sleek high pony and thick gold hoops. The best kind of top is high-necked so that a gold chain can demand all of the attention. Want another hack? These accessories will work with a plain co-ord set, too!

Don’t go dropping hundreds of dollars on your wardrobe just yet. These tips will help you transform your loungewear into chic-but-cozy fashion statements. Sweats in public? Don’t mind if we do!
