Why should women’s loungewear be the next thing you buy? We can think of a few reasons.
We’re entering peak cozy season, which equals more time spent indoors…and more indoor time means you’ll want to stock up on comfortable clothes that look pulled-together enough for a last-minute video meeting and a quick errand.
Lucky for you, Macy’s carries a wide variety of loungewear sets for women, so you’re sure to find comfortable outfits that suit your taste and style. Not sure where to begin? Here are a couple of things to consider before you start shopping.
What Is Loungewear?
Think ofloungewear as the center portion of a Venn diagram that’s composed of casual clothing, women’s activewear and pajamas. It includes elements of all three categories while remaining distinctly different from them.
Multi-purpose pieces like leggings, tees, thermal tops, jogger pants and sweatshirts all come under the loungewear category. These garments feel comfortable enough to wear around the house, but can be paired with women's shoes outside of the home, too.
Feel The Softness
The main contrast between activewear and loungewear is the fabric.
While activewear utilizes technical fabrics geared towards sports performance, lounge pieces are made of stretch-enhanced materials that feel ultra-soft against the skin. You’re likely to spot French terry, Sherpa fleece and velour fabrics while browsing.
Women’s loungewear is nearly always machine washable, so you can throw your sweatshirts, Henley tops, lounge shorts and lounge pants right into the laundry without a second thought.
You probably own several T-shirts and hoodies already, so you’ll want to focus your wardrobing efforts on women’s lounge pants, or possibly women’s lounge shorts if you live somewhere that’s warm all year round.
Leggings and jogger pants make good starting points. In addition to offering comfort and style, they also extend the life of women’s activewear, since wearing loungewear at home means you can save the compression tights and running shorts for their intended purpose: workouts.
