Trend alert: New Year’s Day Loungewear

29 December 2008


Come 1 January we think we know how you'll be feeling. You'll have eaten, drunk and spent far too much over the festive season and you'll want to pull that duvet over you head and move into hibernation. But wait. Long gone are the sloppy Joe stained sweaters and boyfriends track pants days. Slob wear, or loungewear for the more sophisticated among us, isn't an excuse to lose all self respect should supplies run low and heaven forbid you are made to leave the house and face the public. So instead of piling on chunky fabrics, opt for layering the softest of fabrics to keep you warm and comfy.

Cashmere tees are a perfect start: Gap and Crumpet England have done great ones. We love the new neutrals like moss green, taupe and blush, which are warming on the skin and will work will in your spring wardrobe. T-shirt dresses are set to be big for next season, so go for longer in the length and wear it now as the alternative to the nightdress.

Silky trousers will skim in the right places and are the ultimate luxury with no restrictions. Freddy, the Italian dance shop that has just been named by the Royal Ballets official sponsor, can't be wrong in their versions. They also do a great selection of ballet wraps and super soft cottons with a perfect amount of stretch that can be worn for a workout or a lounge about.

And lastly, the ever so crucial footwear, knee high cable knit socks will give you the perfect amount of slouch and thickness, but, if you want a sock and boot, look no further than UGGs knitted boot, yes!

Now there is no need to ever leave home....
