Chances are this year you’ve accumulated more loungewear than ever. Sweatpants, leggings, and sweatshirts all experienced a significant spike in sales. It’s panning out to be a loungewear all year kind of year. If it’s cozy and comfy, we’ve apparently been here for it. Of course, we believe that cozy and comfy could be chic too. So, here’s how I’m taking my loungewear to the streets. This set is from Tarjay (top | bottom), and it’s as comfortable as it’s cute.
What I’m wearing:
To be honest, my main outings these days are to Target or the grocery store. So, when I have an appointment, even if it’s just with my dentist, I step it up a bit. Real talk, I wore this outfit to see my dentist last week.
Stepping it up, however, is super easy when your loungewear is chic all on its own. These joggers have so many features I love. They have a wide waistband, loose fit, and a tapered ankle. Still, I almost passed on them because the reviews are so mixed. I’m so glad I took a chance because I couldn’t love them more. Now, the soft fabric isn’t the most forgiving, so if a little jiggle might concern you, these might not be your favorite.
The sweatshirt packs a lot of flavor too. It has a swingy silhouette with slightly flared sleeves and an attached hood. I like to tuck it for a polished look. By the way, the set also comes in Moss Green and Dusty Peach. I’m wearing both pieces in a size small.
To add a little fall style vibe to the joggers, I caped my leather jacket, added a pair of combat boots, and grabbed a mini bag. And, yes, I finally got my hands on the sought-after Telfar Clemens Shopping Bag. I’ve been a fan of Telfar for a while (check out my 6 Black Fashion Designers To Know), so I’ve been thrilled to see how much attention the designer’s work has garnered. Well-deserved.
By the way, while this bag has been sold out for months. The brand has been doing special releases fairly frequently. Sign up for the mailing list to receive announcements of new limited releases. When I got the email about this dark olive bag, I set an alarm and got ready because releases sell out within seconds. Shout-out to the Telfar team because I got my bag a few days (as in less than a week) after ordering. That’s impressive given the demand and the times we’re living in.
