The sweater and jogger sets are the cosy co-ords you can rely on around the clock. Allow us to introduce you to the most wanted styles, some of which already have a wait list.
Our wardrobes have adapted a lot this year. many of our usual ‘work’ wardrobes may look a little different since working from home became the norm. The fact is, no one wants to sit at their kitchen table/makeshift bedroom desk in a stuffy suit or restricting jeans. Remember those?
Loungewear has basically become part of the capsule wardrobe, and you know what? We’re pretty damn happy about it – as are some of the best brands. The likes of Ganni, Baum und Pferdgarten and Kitri have all added cosy edits to their latest collections. Something in particular that they’ve all ticked off, though, is the sweater and jogger set.
Baum und Pferdgarten’s logo styles made from organic and recycled cotton have already been worn by fashion influencers including Oumayma Elboumeshouli.
What we like most about these is that not only do they look effortless as a set, they can also be worn as separates, in and outside of the house.
That’s right, loungewear out and about is completely acceptable. The easy way to style them is by taking those items that have been taken a backseat (blazers, trainers and jeans) and styling them with your loungewear. Influencer Maria Barteczko (above) gives a lesson in how to do it right with an oversized tonal blazer and fail-safe Converse kicks.
With so many loungewear sets out there, we’ve made a carefully curated edit of the new styles which have already been spotted on Instagram, are sustainable and have even gained a wait list.

When London brand Kitri – known for its It dresses and jumpsuits – launched loungewear, we predicted it would be a hit. Naturally, it sold out fast and this amazing set now has a wait list – join the queue now.
