Last week on my instastories I showed this elevated loungewear look and took a poll asking what my viewers thought of this trend. To my surprise many of the voters loved this look, so of course I had to shoot it and give you all my picks for the best loungewear that you can easily elevate with a few key pieces you probably already have in your closet. Now this trend is not for the faint of heart. I don’t own many sweatpants that I’d actually wear in public but these cozy ones from & Other Stories are the perfect color and have just the right amount of tailoring to take them from the couch to the streets of New York City. My sure fire way for trying out this trend seamlessly is to pair your loungewear with a tailored blazer, a basic top or bodysuit and a heel. If you have some cool accessories or designer pieces pop those on too for the ultimate elevated loungewear look. My picks for each to create numerous downtown chic outfits are below.

There you have it! I’m sure the elevating loungewear trend won’t be for everyone but I’m actually kind of liking it! I mean, it doesn’t look the worst and I ended up wearing this outfit to a socially distant and masked Halloween Brunch and it served me just fine. I also got tons of compliments on this look so who knows…maybe the fashion Pinterest girls are onto something. Go ahead and check out all the best pieces above and put your own elevated loungewear look together. Heck, you probably already have everything you need in your closet!
