5 loungewear staples for lockdown


Been furloughed due to COVID-19? Or maybe you’re working from home?

Either way, we’re guessing your office wardrobe has been ditched in favour of loungewear? It’s the midpoint between PJs and athleisure. A middle ground, that allows you to escape tight-fitting ‘proper’ clothes, whilst still looking stylish and on-trend. In other words, the perfect uniform for lockdown. And, here at Tokyo Laundry, we have you covered.

Both our men’s and women’s range is bursting at the seams with styles that are built for comfort – and here we’ve picked out just a few of the loungewear staples that should be on your wish-list.


1. Jogging bottoms

You really can’t go wrong with a pair of joggers. We like to think of them as the cousin of pyjama bottoms. Cut from brushback fleece, with a drawstring waistband – they have the same super-soft and comfy feel. But they’re perfectly acceptable to wear if heading out for basic necessities.

Our online collection has a wide range of styles for both men and women, with something to suit all tastes. But we’re particularly loving pastel shades at the moment. It’s spring, after all. So why not opt for a tonal mauveglow pink and team them with a matching hoody to create a slick co-ord look?


2. Jogger shorts 

Now the sun is starting to make an appearance, jogger shorts are another loungewear essential.

Constructed from cotton loop-back fleece and boasting an adjustable waist, they’re perfect for lounging in the garden – and will (thankfully!) expand with you if you’re cursed by lockdown weight gain. But for days when you’re feeling motivated, their loose fit and breathability make them an ideal option for home workouts, allowing you to move freely and sweat it out in style.

3. Oversized sweatshirts

A slouchy, oversized sweatshirt is a loungewear hero. Snugly and warm, it’s the perfect choice for chilly mornings sat at your desk kitchen table. And then, when the clock hits 5pm and it’s time to relax, you’re instantly ready for curling up on the sofa and watching your favourite boxset.

For ladies, we recommend teaming it up with leggings to create a chilled yet cosy look. Or buy a size up and wear it as a chic jumper dress? For men, simply style it with joggers or jogger shorts.


4. Short-sleeved tees

The humble tee has been a casual staple for a long time. But thanks to the influence of fashion powerhouses – such as Gucci – slogan and print tees have become increasingly popular in recent years. And now we’re all reaching for the comfy loungewear, it’s the t-shirt’s time to shine.

Here at Tokyo Laundry, we have a huge selection of women’s t-shirts for you to choose from – including many with bright eye-catching graphics and catchy sayings. To create an easy-going yet statement look for video conferences, go a size up and tuck one corner into a pair of cycle shorts. 

We also have a wide range of men’s t-shirts available – and, if you just need a few basics to wear under your sweatshirt or hoody – you can bag up to six cotton t-shirts for only £20.

5. Lounge sets

Last but not least, you’re going to need a cosy lounge set (aka, pyjamas). Perfect for those off-duty days, when your only plan is to slump on the sofa with junk food and a movie.

Guys can slip on a pair of our cotton jersey lounge pants – with a simple t-shirt and a pair of slippers. Girls can treat themselves to one of our matching two-piece sets, with a loose-fit vest top and boxer shorts. All styles in our loungewear collection are crafted from smooth, stretchy fabric, and offer ultimate levels of comfort when work’s done and you just want to relax.
