Could we *be* any more comfortable?
This week, we’re all about comfort. Here are five blissfully relaxed loungewear pieces you won’t be embarrassed to wear outdoors – plus the slip-on Turkish shoe brand beloved by fashion insiders 
 
The playsuit

Stylist Loves’ deputy editor Moya is an avowed loungewear fan. “In the outside world, my style is kind of smart: I love button-down shirts, blazers and tailored trousers. But as soon as I get home, I instantly want to change into soft, breezy things.” This sleeveless playsuit is as comfy and casual as they come, without looking like PJs – simply chuck on a utility jacket and leather sliders to pop to the shops. Now £20.80, was £26, Vero Moda

 
The dress

A loose-fitting, sleeveless jersey dress in a dark colour is the trackies-and-hoodies of the summer months: you probably wouldn’t wear it to a job interview, but it’s transcendently comfortable. With a V-neck and modest side slit, you could go to the park or the pub in this dress and no one would bat an eyelid – but it’s also ideal for wearing on the sofa as you watch Orange is the New Black with no bra on. £49.99, Violeta by Mango

 
The silky set

Schlubbing around the house in this 100% silk shell top and shorts set will make you feel like Stupid Sexy Flanders (ie like you’re “wearing nothing at all…! Nothing at all…! Nothing at all…!”). Except you won’t feel embarrassed to answer the door to the postman. The set comes in six gorgeously muted colours: we like Washed Black and Cloud (pictured). And even though it looks fancy, it can still be chucked in the washing machine. £149, Lunya

 
The wear-anywhere nightie

Back in the 19th century, the term ‘house dress’ referred to the simple, informal frocks worn by women to carry out chores and run errands. Archaic? Maybe. But we think every woman needs a modern house dress: something light, loose and airy that can be thrown on after work or to make brunch on a Saturday morning. This floral cotton number is actually a nightdress, but that matters not a jot to us. £75, Toast

 
The super-soft shorts

Cycling shorts are favoured by the Hadids and Jenners of the world. Certain fashion influencers have been spotted in denim Bermudas (!!!). But for pure comfort, you can’t go wrong with a pair of relaxed drawstring shorts. This striped pair are perfect for lounging around the house, but won’t look out of place on the beach or the street: wear with an oversized printed navy T-shirt for a grungy 90s look. £25, Weekday

New York’s cult slip-on shoes have come to London, and they’re excellent in so many ways, says Stylist Loves editor Kat Poole 
 

I am the sort of woman who wears sandals, and only sandals, from May to September. The very thought of hot summer feet in trainers makes me squirm, even when it’s raining. But I’ve found a brilliant brand for in-between weather: Sabah. Think Insta-cool with an ethos of quality, longevity and craftsmanship – and each pair handmade by the same family in Turkey.

The full-shoe Sabahs come in loads of colours, but my favourite is the slip-on leopard print Baba (£180) – as comfy as a slipper but smart (and hardwearing) enough for, well, anything. You can reserve and order online, and the brand has also just opened a London store on Chiltern Street so you can get fitted in person.

Love Depop, but like to see your pre-loved fashion in person before buying? The online marketplace is popping up on Selfridges’ third floor from now till October, featuring a curated mix of secondhand clothes, workshops and more. Also launching this month is Chinti & Parker’s infectiously joyful Peanuts capsule collection, which includes bright T-shirts and wool and cashmere knits adorned with Snoopy, Charlie Brown and Woodstock. A welcome bit of pre-autumn whimsy. ● Words by Naomi Joseph
