Where we’re buying loungewear to cosy up in during the cooler months

Winter is coming. As we feel the first nips of the winter breeze, that familiar urge to burrow into the comfort of some loungewear sets in. But if you're thinking of ditching the same old sweats this hibernation season, we've curated some brands that will suit every style.

As far as most of us are concerned, when it comes to loungewear, it's all well and truly up to the individual. Whether that means sleepwear, intimates, loungewear or sportswear - it's entirely what feels most comfortable for you. Personally, as you can see below - loungewear indeed takes many forms. From luxurious to statement pieces, ultra-soft basics and vintage-inspired pieces, loungewear has transcended its functionality of being comfortable. There's a surprisingly certain beauty to it, to enhance your comfort, self-expression and well-being, that it's a way to embrace relaxation and prioritise yourself, mantras that are what 2024 should be about.

Here, we have accumulated an array of loungewear brands that you should be shopping ahead of winter.


1. Skims

Kim Kardashian's shapewear brand has expanding into the realms of underwear and loungewear seamlessly, combining both comfort and aesthetics to cement itself as one of the most sought-after brands for soft, durably and versatile garments. Inclusivity is at the fore of Skims' success, offering a pioneering range when it comes to both shade and size.


2. Deiji Studios

Name after the Japanese word for 'Daisy', this Byron Bay-based brand brings together the Aussie laid-back spirit and the timeless sensibilities of Japanese linens. Their signature 03 Set is a staple in the wardrobe of many (including myself), and are designed for wearability both inside and outside of the home.


3. Calvin Klein

Name a more loungewear forward house? We’ll wait. All the classics and all the time to wear them. Whether it’s feminine or sporty, CK have you covered from head to toe and everything underneath. The mega cool and ultra laid back Kate Moss didn't wear it for nothing?


4. Comme Si

Comme Si do some of the most comfortable lounge boxers, that are also very aesthetic, and unisex. If you're in need of some summer boxer shorts or a cozy, luxurious pair of socks to complete your loungewear ensemble, look no further. The chicest of staples are offered c/o Comme Si.


5. Uniqlo

No one does quality and affordability like Uniqlo. Their lounge pieces and even basic staples are my personal go to every time. A short click through their albeit clunky website to the ‘innerwear and loungewear’ tab will have you headfirst in a plethora of all the loungewear you could ever need. Cosy flannel pyjama sets, stretchy daytime looks, fuzzy slippers, long johns, an introvert’s dream, all on the affordable scale of pricing! What more could a gal want?


6. Nike

Another OG is Nike, more on the street style/athletic wear that is always in style.


7. Juicy Couture

Yes, Juicy Couture is alive and well and still producing some of the hottest tracksuit sets I have ever seen. And those star sign bedazzled tracksuit pants seem like a must if you ask me.


8. Loewe

If you're looking for a little more luxury loungewear, don't look any further then Loewe. They have some of the most intrinsic designs in their knitwear, while also producing some of the best tracksuits for street style and at home. Jonathan Anderson is a multifaceted man when it comes to his designs, that is no surprise he dabbles in the more comfortable designs.


9. Leset

For the coordinated queens out there. Leset offers coordinated, pared back basics from tracksuits to activewear, to breezy cotton sets. It's all about the set!


10. Pangaia

Look no further for the tracksuit of your dreams. A favourite of Harry Styles and the fashion set more broadly, Pangaia is created by using many sustainable and recyclable practices as possible, Pangaia fills the need for comfortable, coordinated basics without adding to the fast fashion void we are all trying to clamber out of. Not to mention the myriad of colours Pangaia is touting.


11. Cotton On Body

For affordable new pyjamas, Cotton On Body is your bag. Sometimes all we need is the treat of a new thing without leaving a regretful gouge out of our bank accounts. Waffle, Cotton, Fleece, name the cosy material and they have it.


12. Maison Kitsune

On a more luxurious note, French house Maison Kitsune have been doing luxe sportswear since the beginning, known for its relaxed sporty aesthetic. Track pants and sweatshirts with sweet embroidery, socks with foxes on them, and knitwear that isn’t boring.


13. Plant Dyed

Be dressed the chicest in your Zoom calls. Plant Dyed tracksuits in the most classic of cuts. Nothing. more to say except, how many sets are in your cart?


14. bassike

Australian classics when it comes to jersey. Sustainably sourced organic cotton jersey to cloak yourself in while you hide away from others, and is chic enough to run to the grocery store in at risk of bumping (metaphorically, we’re not doing that anymore) into someone you know slash want to assure you aren’t a total bum.


15. Nagnata

When movement and relaxation unite. With sustainable focusses and tech-driven wool blends, Nagnata is perfect for those who want to go from Netflix and chilling one minute to doing a lockdown squat down (who am I and what am I saying?) the next. Utility without compromise on comfort is definitely what we’re here for.


16. Hara The Label

Sustainable bamboo basics in the softest of renderings. If you're in need of a dreamy basic tee, pair of leggings, flares, or underwear, Hara The Label is an ethical and comfortable one-stop-shop,


17. Skin

Chic silhouettes and luxe fabrics equal a no brainer in our books. Cute, comfy, and screams “I have my shit together even though I’ve eaten nothing but different forms of potatoes for the past week”. Something for everyone in every season.


18. Extreme Cashmere

If the actual height of luxury isn’t a plush cashmere two piece, we are taking submissions to let us know what is? As the name suggests, Extreme Cashmere is built around the basics in cashmere form. Brb, bankrupting myself.


19. Vege Threads

This Melbourne-based ethical loungewear brand offers all the staples – track suits, T-shirts, linen garments and more. They come in a range of earthy hues to suit any palette or complexion – and run from size XS through to 3XL. The brand treads lightly, making all of their garments at local knitting mills and dye houses in Victoria, and using organic and eco-friendly materials like certified Organic Cotton, Merino wool, hemp and natural dyes.


20. Bonds

A last but certainly not least classic. If you’re not coveting a ribbed tank from them, where are you coveting ribbed tanks? Same goes for your favourite grey marle sweats. An Australian icon that does iconic loungewear, if none of the above do it for you, BONDS is a first and last resort.
