Ask Belle: Stylish Weekend Loungewear
Dec 15, 2014
I have a weird question for you: What do you wear on the weekends?
I’m taking my first staycation after the holidays. I’m just going to hang out at home with girlfriend, binge-watch West Wing episodes and order takeout. It’s going to be great. I really don’t want to spend three days in my pajamas though, so I hope you have some suggestion for stylish “couch clothes.”
Love the blog! Charlotte
Oh, how I love a good stay-cation. May I also recommend House of Cards and, if you’re a Sorkin fan, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip?
I have a very strict weekend uniform: leggings and sweatshirts with tunic tops. That’s all I wear when I’m just hanging out at home.
If it’s t-shirts you’re after, I love the $15 tees from Everlane. They’re a great buy, and the perfect mix of fitted and slouchy. Prefer something in a tunic length? I like Victoria’s Secret Essential Tees, also $15.
My apartment is not exactly warm. If I’m home, I’m wearing a sweatshirt. I love Athleta’s sweatshirts; they’re chic and wear like iron. This wrap-neck sweatshirt is great. I also like their scoop neck Sharkbite sweatshirts for that slouchy, Jennifer Beals look. And their Acacia sweater gives you the look of a sweatshirt in a soft, sweater-knit material.
Also, if you’re looking for a sweatshirt to replace the college or campaign sweatshirt most of us long in, I love a funnel-neck sweatshirt. This Bella Lux sweatshirt is the perfect “grown-up” option. And this funnel neck sweatshirt from Eddie Bauer is a great under-$50 option. It also comes in five gorgeous colors.
Looking for loungewear for less? Old Navy is the place to be. This striped, funnel-neck pullover is the perfect mix of cozy and chic. I also like this waffle-knit sweater and this basic hoodie, both under-$20.
