In recent years, loungewear has moved from a weekend outfit to a way of life. Guys, when was your last update? It's not enough to just buy a few new basics. You will be spending more time in lounge or athleisure clothes, so pay closer attention to details and fit. This will ensure that you are able to live comfortably in your new pieces. You might feel more professional while working remotely or running errands. This means that you can upgrade your loungewear collection.
We searched reviews and perused the top-seller lists of our favorite brands to find the best loungewear. Finally, we tapped SELF staffers to ask them for their (or their significant other's) favourite loungewear. There are many brands and retailers that sell comfortable loungewear for men, including Nike, Champion and Outdoor Voices. We have broken them down by category: shorts and lounge pants, tanks, robes, and so on.
Consider your choice of length when buying shorts. Shorter inseams (4-inch) are in fashion lately. However, if you don't find them comfortable, go for 7 or 9-inch inseams. Lululemon and Outdoor Voices are well-known for their high quality activewear. However, they also have the finest loungewear for men. At Ease Shorts and All Day Shorts can be worn to run errands. Richer Poorer's cotton shorts or Alo Yoga's French Terry shorts are great for lounging on the couch during the afternoon. Nike's lightweight, moisture-wicking fabric briefs, as well as Amazon's, are great for exercising and running.
You need a few versatile t-shirts, tanks and long-sleeved tees in your wardrobe, especially if you still wear college tees. The reliable Hanes tanks are great for layering, exercising, or simply hanging out at home. Todd Snyder is a luxury option for tanks. Alo Yoga offers long-sleeve tees made from a soft waffle knit. Everlane's is made with a heavyweight cotton blend for serious comfort.
There are literally hundreds of thousands of mens hoodies available. Although it can be overwhelming, these six hoodies are guaranteed to provide optimal comfort. The classic Club Fleece Crewneck from Nike is a great choice. It can be worn post-workout, at work, or in the lounge. Girlfriend Collective's micro-fleece zip up is ideal for outdoor wear. We also love the Patagonia and The North Face half zips. Outdoor Voices' Nimbus Hoodie, a heavyweight sweatshirt with a fleece lining, is a great choice. Marine Layer's color-blocked Hoodie is a great option for layering.
Robes: Perhaps the most beautiful piece of clothing ever made. Your post-bath companion, binge marathon wearable blanket, and I-don't-know-what-to-wear-yet covering. Parachute's lightweight waffle weave Robe or Nautica's breathable cotton robe might be the best option for you. Brooklinen's super-fluffy and bestselling Super Plush Robe or Polo Ralph Lauren’s luxurious cotton option will make you feel more spa-like.
Pajamas are essential for sleep, especially when changing out of pajamas is not an option. At the very least, you should have several luxurious sets of pajamas. Washable silk, gauzy or any matching set with a tee, shorts, and a tee will keep you cool. Uniqlo and J.Crew's long-sleeve sets are perfect for colder seasons. Javy Rodriguez, senior social media manager at SELF recommends Patrick Church's silky sets in a variety of patterns and colors.
We are confident that a pair of sturdy, handsome house slippers will be the last item in your loungewear collection. A pair of slippers that have at least some traction is essential for scuffling around the house and running the dog, as well as picking up the mail. Parachute and Ugg are great for easy slip-on comfort thanks to their soft materials and cushy feet. Mack Weldon's One Mile Slipper or Shoeslocker’s anti-slip Slippers are a more substantial option. Both will keep your feet secure without sacrificing comfort.
