The Fashion Memo

The ultimate loungewear edit

As phrases like ‘social distancing’ and ‘self-isolation’ become part of our everyday language across the globe, the impact on our lifestyles and, by extension, our closets, can be keenly felt. At a time when it’s more important than ever to remain indoors and work from home where possible, it’s imperative to create joy wherever and however you can. Our top tip? Bring a sense of ceremony to proceedings by overhauling your off-duty look. These laid-back outfits strike the perfect balance between cozy and considered…

Top, and track pants, both Skin


Nothing says effortless elegance quite like cashmere – which is why Loulou Studio’s hoodie and Madeleine Thompson’s track pants make such an enviable pairing. Style these sumptuous separates with luxe slippers by cult New York designer Lauren Manoogian – once you’ve cosseted your feet in her alpaca slides you’ll happily disregard all other footwear – and use your extra down-time to try out some new products. Susanne Kaufmann’s glow mask is guaranteed to leave you feeling thoroughly refreshed and radiant.


A handful of our favorite exercise studios are now offering streaming services, meaning it’s actually possible to make yoga and Pilates or fitness classes fit around our schedules. Plus, incorporating sportswear into your look is an extra incentive to make mindful movement a regular part of your day. Pair Reebok x Victoria Beckham’s sports bra with Balenciaga track pants and a Gucci sweatshirt for a directional take on workout gear. After your workout, slip into Proenza Schouler + Birkenstock’s Arizona sandals for the kind of look you’ll happily show off to friends on your next video call.


London label Asceno, which we all love for its premium silk pajamas, has quickly established itself as the final word when it comes to luxe sleepwear. Consider investing in a pair of its classic printed sets for the ultimate form of sartorial self-care. Turn nesting into a fine art by lighting some scented candles, running a hot bath and adding a liberal splash of Aromatherapy Associates soothing essential oils. After your relaxing bath, slip on a nightshirt and a pair of cozy cashmere socks. Bliss.


There’s been a lot of noise on the internet about how ‘dressing for the office’, even if that’s working from your dining-room table, can have a huge impact on your productivity. That being said, the idea of donning a suit to stay in the house does seem somewhat excessive. Get the best of both worlds by layering Olivia Von Halle’s chic floral robe over the ultimate tried-and-tested combination: a simple white tee and blue jeans. Let this hi/lo formula set the tone for your entire ensemble by finishing with Gabriela Hearst’s understated slides.


Blame it on Katie Holmes. Ever since she stepped out in a knitted-cardigan-and-bra combo last year, her now-iconic look has become highly coveted. Put an elegant spin on off-duty dressing by layering a longline cardigan, courtesy of ATM Anthony Thomas Melillo, over Skin’s soft-cup bra and a pair of timeless wide-leg pants by Loro Piana – the Italian brand known for its second-to-none fabric and fit. Accentuate the ’90s connotations of this minimalist look by adding croc slippers from Malone Souliers and Deveaux’s exclusive collaboration.
