Whether you’re running errands, heading to the office or travelling to the city, wearing loungewear out and about has become acceptable. The casualisation of fashion has been long underway since the ever-popular ‘Casual Fridays’ in the 1990’s, that has turbocharged following the global pandemic. According to Edited in 2021, workwear sales decreased by as much as 45%, and loungewear searches increased by over 800% in 2021. The future of traditional tailored workwear thus seems unsteady. In fact, Stitch Fix surveyed that 72% of professionals have prioritised comfort when dressing for work over the past year. It seems returning to office life and city routines doesn’t mean the end of WFH comforts.
We spoke to Craig, founder of @menswearstyle, who often wears his loungewear as outerwear. He said: “I've worn my green Beddable loungewear shirt with navy cropped trousers, unstructured blue jacket, and minimal white trainers on the morning school run. It portrays a relaxed but sophisticated look with minimal planning.” Craig Landale, menswearstyle.co.uk
So take your loungewear beyond WFH and blur the boundary between style and comfort with beddable. Our bamboo loungewear collection is breathable, comfortable and stylish. When you’re heading back to the city, it can make the ideal work-week attire, and we’ll tell you why:
- Bamboo is the nation’s favourite comfort. Designed for comfortability and movement, it’s soft to the touch qualities, with tailored fluidity, like our Women’s Flow Set, allow for the ultimate relaxed fit. Pairing flowing items with more structured pieces, like jogger pants and a biker jacket elevates any relaxed outfit whilst maintaining that PJ all-day feeling.
- In classic neutral colour tones, like white, grey, navy and dark green, our Men’s Bamboo Loungewear collection is equally appropriate for in-house lounging and out of the house activities. Keeping it neutral means you can coordinate with other colour tones without disrupting cohesion. Choosing a versatile monochromatic colour palette will harmonise an outfit easily, without distracting from its comfortability.
- Staple items such as our White Basic T-shirt can be styled for both home and the office. A classic wardrobe essential that duals as a cosy comfort. In fact, any soft, relaxed-fit t-shirt proves versatile in style, layer under a long coat or pair with denim jeans and stay comfy whilst appearing as if you’re day-out ready.
- More refined pieces, like our Men’s Lounge Shirt and Men’s Jogger Pants as part of our Men’s lounge set act as a transitional outfit that combines casual items with smart detailings. No need to layer or pair with dressier pieces as fun features, like a collar, shirt buttons or tie waist drawstring, offer all the elevation you need.
