Ever since Lululemon changed women’s fashion and culture back in the mid-2000s, “soft clothes,” more specifically black exercise pants, have become suitable for almost any occasion. I’m certainly guilty of donning them in more situations than I care to admit! But every now and again I want to elevate my casual wear to lounge in a decadent and fashionable way without feeling like I need to squeeze in a trip to the gym to justify it. After all the cooking, socializing and shopping of the past month, don’t we all deserve a moment to throw something more comfortable on?!

Lucky for us, the days of itchy plaid muumuus are in the past! Today’s contemporary loungewear is so evolved it will convince everyone (most importantly you) that you’re wearing actual clothing!

Now go find the coziest room in your house, slip on a sumptuous velvet or furry piece of clothing and relish these most precious times of the year.
